30 Before Thirty

The Hubs and I are two years apart.  I am the older one, and therefore the one turning 30 first.  I love lists.  They help me set goals, keep me focused and it is the BEST feeling in the world to cross things off of my list!  So here is a list of things both the Hubs and I want to accomplish before we turn 30.  It started off as my list, but since 30 is creeping up faster than I would like, I turned it into a list for both of us.  It gives us a few extra years to get things done.  Some of these are my goals, some are the Hub's and some apply to both of us.  And I may or may not have put one or two things on here that I knew I could check off.  Don't judge.


1).  Buy a house.  (We closed on 8/15/2012!  Check it out here)
2).  Decorate a house.  (very open ended)
3).  Tackle a few DIY projects (again very open ended)
4).  Create a blogging schedule and list of topics.
5).  Learn more about how to have a successful blog.
6).  Complete Couch to 5k.
