30 Before 30

I'm sure we've all made unrealistic resolutions that we hope to accomplish in a short period of time. The problem arises not in making the resolutions-it's wonderful to set goals-but in trying to accomplish this in an unrealistically short amount of time. Well, after David and I completed our Reverse Engineering I got to thinking about some long-term goals I have. Some for our marriage and family, others for my career, some for my faith, and so on and so forth. Then, I started jotting them down and this list was born. This is a list of 30 things I hope to accomplish before I am 30.

  1. Add to our family
  2. Go on a trip somewhere I've never been
  3. Go on a hike with David
  4. Run an entire 5k
  5. Read The Scarlet Letter
  6. Read the Bible all the way through
  7. Tour a brewery
  8. Go to a farmer's market and make a meal from only the food I buy there
  9. Buy a new car
  10. Attend a local festival
  11. Go on a mission trip
  12. Do a big project on the house with David
  13. Paint a room in our house
  14. Get pictures taken of us now that we're married
  15. Bake a cake from scratch
  16. Watch an entire show on Netflix from start to finish
  17. Try one new recipe a week for a year 
  18. Go to a winery
  19. Host a backyard cookout
  20. Pay it forward
  21. Complete one Pinterest craft for every season 
  22. Pursue higher education
  23. Host a dinner party
  24. Attend a beer festival
  25. Post every day for a month
  26. Write a letter a week for one year
  27. Attend a professional sporting event
  28. Watch the sunrise and the sunset in the same day
  29. Keep my nails painted for an entire month without picking off the polish.
  30. Host a giveaway on this blog
My hope is that by posting it on this blog I won't be tempted to let these things fall by the wayside and become lost in the hustle and bustle of life. I'll keep y'all posted as I go!


  1. Love this :) I have a 30 before 30 as well on one of my tabs on my blog!

  2. This is great! Sounds very similar to a list I'd make!
