Home Life Blog: 30 Before 30 Bucket List

30 Before 30 Bucket List

This Saturday, September 6,  I will be 29 years old (Did I really just tell you my age?)!  Where have my twenties gone?!  I am very happy with the things I have accomplished in my 20's so far; I found the love of my life, went to my first ever concert, my first ever road trip, started this blog, had a beautiful daughter and got married.  I feel very accomplished already and blessed, but I still feel like there's a few more things I want to do before turning 30.

I really wanted to make my last year of being in my twenties count so I made a 30 before 30 list and I'm sharing it with you!  Some are silly, some are boring, but all are things I would like to accomplish in my last year in my twenties.  Here are my goals in no particular order.

1)  Sing at a Karaoke bar
2)  Bake my own bread
3)  Get muscles / Fit
4)  Run a marathon / half marathon / color run / Just Run!
5)  Grow a garden
6)  Learn to sew & do a sewing project
7)  DIY furniture makeover project
8)  Paint a painting
9)  Go back to school
10)  Pay off debt
11)  Go camping
12)  Learn to use power tools
13)  Be published in a magazine or magazine blog
14)  Wine tasting
15)  One photo a day for a month
16)  Attend a Blogging Conference / or at least sign up for one
17)  Paint a wall
18)  Visit an Ikea
19)  Grow my 1-2-3 Neat & Tidy blog
20)  Make some blogger friends
21)  Go to a concert
22)  Climb a mountain / large hill
23)  Unplug for a whole week!  (WHAT?!  No electronic devices??)
24)  Learn to take better photos
25)  See at least 1 foot of snow & play in it
26)  Pay for the person behind me in a drive through
27)  Start a Retirement Fund
28)  Find my own style (decorating and fashion)
29)  Donate to locks of love
30)  Plan my own 30th Birthday Bash!!  (You only turn 30 once!)

For a bonus one, I would also like to be more outgoing with my blog.  I hate to admit it but even behind a screen I'm really shy, so I would love to venture out into new territory like blog videos and other things like that.

Who else here is turning 30 next year?  Do you have your own bucket list?

    1. Thanks Sophia. Is that the same as google+?

  3. I will be your blog friend! :) I LOVE Ikea! I used to live 30 minutes from one, but sadly now we are hours away from the closest. :( Great post, thanks so much for sharing!

    1. That would be awesome Morgan! Blog friends it is :). The closest Ikea is 5 hours away, so I've never been to one. :/ hopefully this year though!

  4. This is great, such a good idea! I wish I thought of something fun like that. Since I am already in my thirties, that means I have to come up with 3 more things on the list as I am turning 33 and my birthday is in November... crap, next year. Well now I need a 34 list before turning 34!! ;) LOL
    Great post!

    1. It's never too late to make a bucket list! You can make one of things to do before you are 35! That's my next one and I plan to be more adventurous! Vegas is definitely going on that list :).

  5. That's a good list! I'm turning 33 this year and I'm thinking of making a bucket list of things to do before the big four-oh. I think I can get a lot done in 7 years ;-)

    1. That list should be fun! You plan out all the fun stuff! =)

  6. I'm almostg 34 and there are still a few things on you list I haven't done. I have to make a list of 35 things to do before I turn 35. :)

    1. Good luck with your list and thanks for stopping by! =)

  7. Another Blog Friend here. I am 26 and will be 27 the end of September I should be thinking of a list of things to do. Some of yours I really need to do as well!!!!!!

    1. Glad to have another blog friend! =) You are so young, Erica, I bet you can fit lots of fun things in your list before you turn 30! =) Have fun with it!

  8. My birthday was the 6th as well. Happy Birthday!!

    1. Thank you and happy belated birthday to you too Beth! =)

  9. Oh how I miss Ikea! I'm now 4 hours away from the closest store. Great list and I'm going to work on my own list! Hope you had a very special birthday! -Jess

    1. Thanks so much! And you are so lucky to have even set foot in one. The closest is 5 hours away for me and I've never even seen one up close.
