30 Before 30

Monday, May 23, 2011
I decided to make one of the ubiquitous 30 Before 30 lists.  I figured why not?  I love lists, I do great with a deadline and turning 30 is a pretty big deadline (and one I can't push back!).  Finally getting this blog going was in part due to my 30 Before 30 list.  I realized that a few of the items on my list would benefit from having a blog-- maybe not so much flossing (#2) but having a blog will encourage me to work on my photography (#12) and is a step in getting T&V up and running (#6).
  1. Photo Albums - Catch up on old photo albums.  I haven't printed pictures since college.  I want to get my photos organized and into albums... think I'm going to do digital photo books (probably on blurb.com) as opposed to printing pictures and putting them in a book.  More compact this way.
  2. Flossing - I need to become a flosser-- apparently this is important. 
  3. Herb Garden - Start an herb garden and keep it alive!
  4. Marine Parade - Try to go see the Marine Parade.  Think this one is going to have to be replaced as there are no more reservations for 2011!
  5. Pizza - Perfect pizza at home from scratch (this is not going to be a fun process...)
  6. Tallulah & Vidalia - Get T&V up and running. I think starting the blog helps with this one!
  7. 5 a Day - Easily incorporate 5 fruits and veggies into my daily diet.  This is probably easy for most but considering I could live off of any combo of cheese and carbs, not so easy for me.
  8. Random Acts of Thoughtfulness - I used to be much better about this.  Now I just think of things and never follow through.  Time to change.
  9. Get (and stay!) Organized - Financially, craft supplies, kitchen, closet.  I definitely believe that everything should have a place and everything should be in that place, so I need to find a place for everything (or get rid of it).
  10. Time Capsules - Start a tradition of a yearly time capsule with mementos from the year.
  11. (private)
  12. Photography - Practice, practice, practice
  13. Baked Alaska - Make a baked Alaska!  Why?  No real reason... I just want to.
  14. Stop Procrastinating - Self explanatory.
  15. Wines - Start and maintain a like and dislikes list.
  16. (private)
  17. Hair Stylist - Find a hair stylist in DC that I love.  It's hard when the bar is set so high by Stephanie in Dallas, but I think it's time to find someone to supplement in DC.
  18. Segways - Finally do that segway tour of DC!
  19. Accessorize - Clean out my closet and organize so I can easily accessorize each day.
  20. Bike to Mt. Vernon - Going to have to work up to this one.  Andy, this involves you too!
  21. New Recipes - Make a new recipe from one of my cookbooks each week.
  22. Sewing - Take a class or read a book and practice.
  23. Birthdays - SEND BIRTHDAY CARDS!!!
  24. Reach out to family more frequently
  25. CPA - Get licensed!!!
  26. House Hunting - Start checking off the tasks of what must get done before we can start actually looking at houses and buy one!
  27. Constantly Question Myself - "Is this really what I want to be doing?"  If the answer is no, then CHANGE IT!  (this applies to a lot of things... daily activities like when I'm sucked into Facebook and don't want to be and more life long ones)
  28. A Thought a Day Journal - Start and maintain. 
  29. Scan Pics - Finish scanning pictures. 
  30. Develop skin care routine

  1. Cartierbuy replica watches is the renowned French jeweller and watchmaker with replica cartier a history of pioneering design and a drive for excellence. The first references to Cartier wristwatches date back to 1888. Late in the 19th century it was pocket and chatelaine watches that were most popular, but Louis Cartier saw a future in timepieces that could be worn on the wrist.
