30 before 30...

I'm turning 30 next year.
30.
3-0.
Thirty.

Dang.

While I continue to try and deny that I'm no longer in my mid-twenties and soon will exit my twenties all together, I decided to come up with a list of 30 things I'd like to do before the big three-oh. When I hear the words, "bucket list" I think of myself as a gray-haired woman jumping out of an airplane. If 30 is freaking me out, I sure don't wanna imagine myself with gray hair. So this is not a bucket list. Got it? 

Moving on. Here's my list, in no particular order:

1. Sew myself an item of clothing
2. Start a new blog
3. Swim with dolphins
4. Buy a pair of Louboutins
5. Go on a cruise
6. Plan a fundraising event
7. Go zip-lining
8. Go sailing
9. Join a women's networking group
10. Spend an entire day doing absolutely nothing but watching movies
11. Face my fear of ladybugs
12. Visit the Grand Canyon
13. Go on a hot air balloon ride
14. Be my own boss
15. Sleep outside under the stars
16. Meditate regularly
17. Eliminate red meat in my diet
18. Own a digital SLR camera and learn how to use it
19. Go wine tasting at a vineyard
20. Become a Director with Stella & Dot
21. Get into a regular fitness routine (yoga, ballet aerobics, etc.)
22. Learn how to get my hair to look like this
23. Make more crafty things for our house... like this
24. Make wine
25. Complete another 30 day Bikram Yoga challenge
26. Host a fancy dinner party
27. Make a decision about having children (note how that one is worded)
28. Buy a new house with a bigger yard
29. Try a float spa
30. Learn how to cook like my husband a few decent meals

Other things that didn't quite make the cut.... not because I didn't want them to make the list, but because I wanted to at least make the list realistic. We're running low on time here, remember? Maybe for the 40 before 40 list. I can't believe I just said that.

1. Go on a Safari in Africa
2. Visit NYC in the spring
3. See the Northern Lights
4. Build a custom closet (or have one built)
5. Refinish an old piece of furniture
