30 By 30

We have established that I am a list maker. I have so much going on that a lot of times I can't keep track of anything unless it's on a list. I also have a thing for cute note pads so.. there's that too.
 This year Nick's cousin created a list of things he wanted to do before he turns 40. A midlife bucket list of sorts. This made me think about the things that I want to see, do, and accomplish in the next few years. I decided that rather then give myself only a year, I'm going to give myself 4.
 I can feel 30 quickly creeping up. I'm only 26, but I'm dramatic and 30 feels really close.
With so many major life changes in the near future I know we are going to be even busier. Which is why I've opted to give myself so much longer. I'd like to be able to actually finish all of the things on the list and that just won't happen if I only give myself until my next birthday.
I actually started my list a while ago and kept it running on my iphone. A lot of my items are trips and travel related, but my goal is for most of them to be personal enrichment type things.
I think I will do this as an on-going list that I can add to and cross off as we go along.
  1. Complete my professional certification. Done! I received my certificate this week!
  2. Be Maid of Honor in a friend's wedding. {This was an old item, now that I'm married I suppose I have to go by Matron? Ugh. Old.} I can't quite check this one off yet, but my sweet friend Jeanette asked me to be her MOH in her wedding next May. Eeeep!
  3. Work from home full time
  4. Go parasailing
  5. Take a hubs & me only trip to Las Vegas
  6. Go skydiving
  7. Become a mama {number one, most important ever lifetime goal. No pressure...}
  8. Go stand up paddle boarding
  9. Find our church home/family
  10. See the Grand Canyon at Sunset
  11. Go on a hot air balloon in Napa
  12. Become an aunt {I realize this is completely out of my control, I just can't wait to love on my sister's little red heads.}
  13. Do yoga on the beach
  14. Go to Disneyland {I haven't been since I was 7. It's tragic.}
  15. Buy our forever home 
  16. Go white water rafting
  17. Watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade with my kids. {Doesn't necessarily have to be in person. I just love waking up Thanksgiving morning and watching the parade snuggled on the couch while the food cooks!}
  18. Become a confirmed Catholic & get baptized {I was always a little sad that my parents didn't have me baptized like they did my older sister. But I'm actually glad that this is a choice that I'm able to make now as an adult.}
  19. Spend New Years Eve in Times Square
So, as we can see I'm just getting started here. Anyone have any must do's that I should add?
