Thirty before Thirty Update

    It is offically crunch time.

    If you have been hanging around the blog for any amount of time, you might remember my thirty before thirty list.   I made a list of thirty things I'd like to accomplish before I turned 30.  Silly me even plopped it into my side bar so I'd be accountable.  (Boy, was I an over-achiever that day!)  I was reviewing the list today and realized how pathetic I am.  I'm not even half way there.  I have to be honest though, I'm not sure why I included some of the items.  I could think of more "worthy" things now.  Maybe they can go on my fifty before fifty list.  :)

    When I started the list I had around 3 years left.  I'm down to around three months.  Being honest, I think I might be changing it to fifteen before thirty....I'm such a loser.

   So my update....

1. Decorate every room in my house--This has been slow going.  I have plenty of ideas but am not willing to fork out all the money at once.  Finished rooms:  Kitchen, Dining room, Living room, guest bath.  Not finished:  Spare bedroom, master bed room, master bath, laundry room.  The nursery is sooo close to finish.  I hope to have a post up on it soon.

 2. Dye my hair--done (that's one)

 3. Become more disciplined in my devotional life--done (that's two)--staying at home helps me in this area so much!

 4. Find and keep a family doctor--I did have an appointment with a dr about 2 years ago...Not sure if that counts as keeping it.  

 5. Learn to use my camera on manual--kind of done (that's three)--I'm not a pro by any  means but am getting better.  The other day at Walgreens they asked for a copyright release on some pictures I took.  That made me feel good.

 6. Volunteer for some worthy organization--:(

 7. Stop drinking soft drinks--I was totally caffeine free while I was expecting.  Now I drink mostly water.  I do still love me a cold coke and sweet tea.

8. Lose 30 pounds.--:(  I can't do much with this right now while I'm nursing.

 9. Get in the best shape of my life-- :(

 10. Organize my recipes in one place--Maybe soon.

 11. Take an amazing Vacation--not happening

 12. Have a baby/or adopt :)--done (that's four).  I have had adoption on my heart for some time.  We'll see what happens in the future.

 13. Organize my birthday list and start sending cards--Slacker

 14. Can and freeze vegetable from our garden--We (as in Michael), have a small garden this year.  That's progress.

 15. Go Hunting with Michael--not so much

16. Take a road trip--nope

 21. Clean out my car trunk--done(that's five)

 22. Make Little Girl Hair bows--I've played around with this a little but nothing to brag about

 23. Buy and Learn to use photo shop--It's been bought, and Michael knows how to use it...does that count?

 24. Photograph a Waterfall--done (that's six)

 25. Have a girls night out with friends--any takers?---obviously I have no friends.

26. Join a book club--nope

 27. Visit Biltmore--done (that's seven)

 28. really get dedicated with couponing--tried and stunk at it!

 29. Set a budget and live on it--shamefully no

That's all it's honest embarrassing glory!

Well I can testify that #13 is not happening. I'm trying to remember if I even got a text back in March.... LOL And I'm sick of seeing you and Michael in your blog design. Life is all about K-girl now. FIX IT. Haha, jk I think you've accomplished quite a bit on your list. Most people don't take them seriously anyway, so you've done well!
