30 Things to Handle Before Blowing Out 30 Candles

  1. Go kayaking (I’ll be contacting Matt Diamond for a lesson)
  2. Complete a Tough Mudder (I want that orange headband so bad!)
  3. Bake a cake (from scratch)
  4. Start a blog (consider this crossed off)
  5. Read a book (you’re probably thinking one book? really? well those of you who know me and my disdain of black letters on a screen or 4×6 piece of paper know that this will be a challenge for me)
  6. Run a second marathon (I guess this means I’m committing myself; I’d be happy even if I don’t PR)
  7. Be a bridesmaid in my brother’s wedding (March 22, 2014)
  8. Visit a winery I’ve never been to before (this should be pretty easy)
  9. Go Rock Climbing (at an indoor place)
  10. Visit a city I’ve never been to before (Newport Richie in May)
  11. Go to a professional sport game (any sport, any city… just a pro game)
  12. Try a new hobby (maybe jewelry making?)
  13. Renovate our kitchen (or my bathroom)
  14. Go on a picnic (Finally use one of our wedding presents)
  15. Go camping (I’ve only been saying I’ve wanted to do this for 5 years now)
  16. Go Ice Skating (at Rockefeller Center would be nice, but Richmond around Christmas time will suffice)
  17. Have professional family photos taken (I’m holding Coleman to this one)
  18. Go to a drive-in movie (this might be a hard find)
  19. Get pregnant (this might water down my 30th celebration a little but I don’t mind a bit)
  20. Conduct a complete random act of kindness (so someone else can pay it forward)
  21. Donate to NPR (I listen to it every day on the way home and feel so guilty during their membership drives)
  22. Start wearing contacts again
  23. Eat brussel sprouts
  24. Build up our savings account
  25. Go skinny dipping (I feel like it’s not acceptable to do this after the 20’s… so here’s to the last hoorah!
  26. Watch a scary movie (boy do I hate scary movies… facing my fears)
  27. Ride shotgun in a car with more than 3 passengers (eeeeek!)
  28. Play the lottery (I’ve never done this, and will need a lesson)
  29. Make Cauliflower crust pizza (I’ll share the recipe for anyone looking to go gluten free)
  30. Go to Las Vegas (Vegas Baby…. Vegas! (in my best Vince Vaughan voice))
