As many of you know, I've been in the process of creating a list of 30 things I want to accomplish before I turn 30.  Tonight I started looking over the list and decided to share it here.

If a task has been crossed out that means I finally did it [yay!] and you can now click on it to see the story and pictures of how I made it happen.  :)

  1. Love this.. Great list and Glad to see you got to cross one off.. I am fan of your site :) great blog!! Found you on Bloggy Mom

  2. Love it! I did a Life List about a year ago, and I've been slowly crossing things off. Working on one right now, #37 - Run!

    Good for you - making a list is the first step!

  3. What a fabulous idea! Since I'm in my late 30's that would make a pretty long list for me. I'm not sure I could come up with 40 things to do...and actually achieve them all in a short 2 years. But thanks for inspiring me! :) Love your list! You have some awesome goals.


  4. How fun! These are some great things to do! I may have to make a list! Can I put something on if I've already done it? Just to cross it off and feel like I've accomplished something? :) Great list and can't wait to see the results!
