30 by 30 Update

Sometimes I don't like to think about it, but I'm about 2 months away from my 28th birthday. Therefore, I'm 2 years away from my 30th birthday, so it's take to take a look at my 30 by 30 list and see how I'm doing.

  • Blow up at least 3 of our own photos to use at art in the new house
  • Make a calendar in Photoshop to give as Christmas gifts
  • Teach Snax a new trick
  • Serve at a soup kitchen at Christmastime - This seems tougher to do than I expected. It seems everyone wants to do this at Christmas and they only want volunteers who can commit on a regular basis. I'll keep trying.
  • Take a wine tour - Not done, but my friend Ashley bought one on Groupon so we should be doing that sometime this year
  • Play ice hockey
  • Try (and hopefully enjoy) running - Started this. I'll add a post in a couple weeks.
  • Bungee jump - I'm ready, just need a location and some extra cash
  • Road trip down the California coast - Still dreaming. Not going to happen this year.
  • Scuba dive - Not sure if this will happen either. No vacation plans in sight.
  • See the Goo Goo Dolls in concert
  • Go on a short term missions trip with AJ - would still love to do this, but it might be on hold until we have older kids
  • Weigh 160 - had a baby. Still working on this.
  • Read the favourite book of at least one friend each year - Going well. Will be looking for one this year.
  • Spend New Year’s downtown in a big city - Possible.
  • Read the Harry Potter series
  • Spend a day some time painting on canvas - This is the most likely to be next.
  • See the Grease musical
  • Take kickboxing
  • Learn to drive stick (better) - Also a strong candidate. Just need to get out there.
  • Go white water rafting
  • Pay off our debts
  • Recover the dining room chairs - I so so want to do this, but the old covers were outrageously stapled and I haven't found the time to get them off.
  • Learn to sew so I don’t have to get my mom to fix my buttons
  • Get a great permanent job
  • Buy a design program (probably Photoshop)
  • Host a family Christmas
  • Bake a pie from scratch
  • Be in a play - Trying to convince my church's children's ministry to do something so I can be in it without having too big a commitment.
  • Have a baby

  • 16 complete. About halfway done in both time and tasks, but I've got some tough ones to go. Not sure I'll be able to complete the travel ones, but the others should be do-able.
