**30 BEFORE 30**

So, I was reading one of the blogs I just started reading and came across a 30 Before 30 List! I thought to myself, what a GREAT idea!! Thanks Gretchen.

I am 26 now, so I have 3 1/2 years to complete this list. Can I do it? I hope so!!

So here it goes:
**30 BEFORE 30**
  1. I would like to have a baby.
  2. I would like to have our loan paid off!! (In which case, we would be debt-free (aside from the mortgage) We would probably get another loan though because of #3.
  3. I would like a pool!
  4. I would like to travel to California. We almost did this year, but are planning a Caribbean trip instead!
  5. I would like to drive out west! No further than Alberta.
  6. I would like to have new floors in my bedroom, great room and kitchen.
  7. I would like a new camera.
  8. I would like to do more photography on the side.
  9. I would like to rescue and rehome an animal or two.
  10. I would like to be more kitchen inclined. I laugh at this now...
  11. I would like to make a quilt.
  12. I would like my husband to have confidence in my cooking. I know I can't REALLY control this, but maybe the more I cook, the more confidence he will gain?
  13. I would like to buy new furniture for the basement. (I am open to moving my new furniture that I have now in my great room down as well and get new for the great room as well.)
  14. I would like to learn how to use Photoshop!!
  15. I would like to have a baby... I know I have this twice, but maybe I will be lucky enough to have 2 by the time I am 30. I want my kids close together!
  16. I would like to reno my bathroom.... new tub, new floors, maybe main floor laundry, double sinks, etc.
  17. I would like to take up reading... I am not a big fan of reading... I actually get quite bored of it, but I feel I would get a lot from it. I maybe read 1 book a year...MAYBE.. that might be stretching it... I would like to read at least 3 I will say. I don't want to overestimate myself!
  18. Take and go on 2 vacations a year!! One summer and one winter. This year I did not get a summer vacation and last year we renovated during it, so I have technically missed out on 2 summer vacations and I miss them!! We cannot stay home for them!!
  19. I would like to throw a BIG party, like an open house style...
  20. I would like to take a photography class.
  21. I would like to have some type of routine, you know meal plans, financial plans, chore plans, week night plans, etc. It might make life easier, but right now our life is too hectic and busy!
  22. I would like to get a newer vehicle to replace our Explorer, there is not much wrong with it, it is just older. I would be open to getting another one, or something similar, hopefully another FORD!
  23. I would like for Lily to get her weight down to at least 90 pounds... this pretty much seems impossible to me right now, as we are struggling with her hypothyroidism and next year it may not be a problem... but it is a problem right now...
  24. Did I mention have a baby? It is really IMPORTANT to me/us. Even if it is only one child by the age of 30, I would feel nonetheless blessed!!
  25. I would like to do something out of the ordinary. I don't know what this means yet, but maybe I will by the time 30 rolls around!
  26. I would like to organize a girls group, to do girls night out get togethers!
  27. I would like to learn how to do make-up! I am horrible at it and never learned how to apply it. I don't actually wear make-up everyday, but when I go out, I would like to feel confident in my make-up.
  28. I would like to have completed 10 sewing projects, so far I have only completed 2.
  29. I would like to get back into scrapbooking.
  30. Last but not least, I would like to have a BIG 30th BIRTHDAY! Whether it be a big party or a trip somewhere, I want to go all out!!
What would you do?

What a great list! I did a 30 before 30 list as well, and it's kind of daunting isn't it?! But it's also really fun to have some goals and some things to strive for! :)

This is a fantastic list! I'll take a photography class with you :)

What a great list. I should make one, I've got 3 1/2 years left just like you, plenty of time right? :-) Wishing you the best, especially with expanding your family. May your first child bring you joy that you have never experienced before.

Check out my website, I think I can help you with #10 and #12. :-)

That's a great list!! I would love to be married again by the time I'm 30! (Of course, I still have 6 years left to make that happen, so it's not too much of a stretch!) Ideally, I'd like a couple of babies by then, too. And you'll have to keep us updated on the list!! I'd love to hear some of your getting-more-acquainted-with-the-kitchen recipes & your sewing projects! & what kind of camera you get, haha. Good luck!

This "30 before 30" list is an interesting concept!! I enjoyed reading your list Ashley!! Make it your goal to complete all those items!! :)

Kate and Bryan said...

This is great! I'll be 30 in less than 6 months, so 30 new things to accomplish isn't really realistic for me, but I'm looking forward to watching you cross everything off your list. On a side note - I love the song on your blog... I'm going to do a post about "If I Die Young" in the next couple of weeks :)
