Thirty Before Thirty List Update

It's been over 4 months since I wrote my orginial 30 before 30 list.  I figure it's time to update my peeps with my progress (which isn't as much as I'd like).....So without further ado here's my orginial post with edits in red.

I am a list kind of girl. It's how I get anything done at school. I start every work day by making a new list of things to get done that day. Occasionally if I do something that's not on my list, I go back and write it in just to have the joy of marking it off. My daily list keeps me on track and busy. And at the end of the day I feel like I've really accomplished something.

I have less than three years before I hit the big THREE-OH. Yikes! I've seen on several blogs lists of thirty things to accomplish before that person turns thirty. Sounds right up my we go:

1. Decorate every room in my house--Living room and kitchen have a few things done in them.
2. Dye my hair--very soon

3. Become more disciplined in my devotional life--I can honestly mark this off.  I've always read my bible and prayed but things are different now.  I'm wake up in the mornings thinking about it.  And excited about what I'm reading.   Plus I'm venturing out into some studies...

4. Find and keep a family doctor

5. Learn to use my camera on manual--I've been practicing.  Took some pictures of my friend's family recently.  Just haven't mastered it yet!

6. Volunteer for some worthy organization

7. Stop drinking soft drinks--I'm a water girl now.

8. Lose 30 pounds--half way there...I will probably be changing this to more once I get to 30.

9. Get in the best shape of my life--are there really people who like exercise????
10. Organize my recipes in one place--not so much

11. Take an amazing Vacation--not yet.

12. Have a baby/or adopt :)--sorry mom!

13. Organize my birthday list and start sending cards--list is organized but I haven't sent the first card yet.

14. Can and freeze vegetable from our garden

15. Go Hunting with Michael

16. Take a road trip

17. Organize my hard drive

18. Order a custom painting for our house

19. Write a children's book--Am I really wanting to do this one?

20. Submit a picture to I heart faces

21. Clean out my car trunk--This was on my spring break list...but the great lung infestation/sinus blowout has slowed me down!

22. Make Little Girl Hair bows

23. Buy and Learn to use photo shop--I did get a new laptop....

24. Photograph a Waterfall--tried this when I was out of school for snow...Michael drove me to Frozen Head but the park was closed :(

25. Have a girls night out with friends--any takers?--haven't had any takers yet.  :(

26. Join a book club

27. Visit Biltmore--Remember this...I tried.hopefully later this spring

28. really get dedicated with couponing --This takes so much time...But I'm not giving up yet.

29. Set a budget and live on it

30. re-design my blog

Well that's it.  About 30 months left and 28 adventures.  I better get busy!

It would help if your priorities ie..list..was in proper order!!!! #12 should be #1!!!! I am getting older...had cancer...future unsure... (ok maybe that sounds a little morbid, but I REALLY want a grand baby and will say anything to get one!!!!)

I must say it's a great list!
And yay! on the water!
I do love walking, but it's hard for me to stick with other exercise things. I have a kettle bell that I don't use as often as I did, and a big ball---sit ups pretty regularly:)

I have missed you! I am so like you with my list :) I just wish I would have made a 30 before 30 last year before I turned 30. I so wish we lived close and I would go on a GNO with you in a heartbeat :) Have a fabulous weekend

The camera takes time to master.
Just have fun with it, that's what I do!!!
Water !! I am proud of you!! I need to do that.
I am not a organized person at all, just look in my
purse and closets and it says everything about me!!
Vacation? I have it booked!!
It is great you have a list!! I should do that too!!
