34 Before 34 List

So this week I was invited to a "Favorite Things" party with some old college friends. I had never heard of a Favorite Things party before so as the host was describing where she came up with the idea she talked about the fact that it was on her "30 things to do before I turn 30" list. Later in the evening she shared the rest of the list with us. I was inspired!
I recently celebrated my 33rd birthday. I'm a list maker and a goal-oriented gal myself so I thought, maybe she's on to something here, so I started brainstorming.
Here's what I came up with... in no particular order:
  1. Run my second half marathon
  2. Watch It's a Wonderful Life
  3. Write my will
  4. Make a big change
  5. Get in a blog network
  6. Try a linking party
  7. Attend a conference
  8. Sew a maxi skirt
  9. Make a piece of jewelry
  10. Lose 34 pounds
  11. Finish the baby books
  12. Make myself an apron
  13. Update the family photos around the house
  14. Develop a collection of greeting cards for birthdays, anniversaries and just because. Send them.
  15. Take Curly Girl to a show and make it a special date night
  16. Make a cheesecake from scratch
  17. Start the girls' savings accounts
  18. Buy something from Zulilly
  19. Finish a 30 day fitness challenge
  20. Reorganize our perennial garden
  21. Become a person who makes my bed every day {ok, most days}
  22. Do a 3 day juice fast
  23. Have a weekend get-a-way with Carl
  24. Read something awesome
  25. Taking a relaxing vacation ( without an itinerary)
  26. Explore Bemidji, Minnesota
  27. Write a really personal blog post about something that matters
  28. Go to West Fargo's Bonanzaville
  29. Take the girls to a big zoo
  30. Start wearing jackets
  31. Tube the Ottertail River
  32. Golf 18 holes and enjoy it
  33. Bike the Wilderness Trail at Itasca
