So...4 years ago...yes FOUR years ago...and as a lovely 28 year old...I made a list of 30 things I wanted to do before I turned 30. I stumbled across this post while I was looking through my blog for my Summer Squash Bake (which I've now pinned so that exercise should never happen again...lol). I thought it would be fun to see what progress I've made...and how these things have changed!
1. Read the Bible. Yes, all
of it. Well...this didn't really work out. BUT - I've honestly made great progress. I'm 83% of the way through! 2.
Become and active and contributing member of a Church. YES! We've joined Fairfield Baptist Church, and I've been getting active! I've done two of the women's bible studies and I substitute in the nursery from time to time. 3. Treat my Mom to a spa day. Done! 4. Get Jeff a racing day.Oh goodness...I think he's had at least a dozen. 5.Organize myrecipe book. Done! 6. Get
on a schedule where I make a point to see my girlfriends once a month. Both
sets of them. I'm getting better at this one! 7. Get hardwood floors!- Well, we bought a new house...so we have all new floors! 8. Pay off my new car-
Well, it's not new anymore...but it's just about paid for... turns out a child was more expensive than I ever could have imagined! 9. Finish emergency fund. Well, I finished it for what my target was at the time, but due to our standard of living changes I'd like to have a larger one in place. 10.
Work out 3x weekly for a month Yeah...this one was a fail. Life is too busy for this right now. 11.Organize closets (all three of them!) - Done! 12.
Paint our home - all the rooms! - Done in our old house! Thankfully I don't want to paint anything in the new house! 13. Buy bedroom furniture-
Done! 14. Daily devotionals-
Doing them! Spending time with God daily makes a HUGE difference in my
day. I can totally tell on days where I don't take the time. 15. Join a volunteer organization-
Tithe the entire 10% - Always - no matter what. I have done this & I, am very happy that I have. I feel like I am doing
the right thing, and showing God how grateful I am and that I can be a
responsible steward of his money. 17. Adopt a family for Christmas-
Yes! This is our second year doing this and I LOVE it! 18. MoreDIYprojects - I know I can be crafty!
I've done quite a few, and plan on doing more! 19.
Have a booth at a craft show - This is likely never going to happen, I work too much unfortunately. 20.
Take a wine 101 class - Done! In Fredericksburg! It was great! 21.
Have wedding dress cleaned / repaired - Done! It's all cleaned and boxed up...for something... 22.
Make a scrapbook for 2009 - There is no time for things like this... 23.
Finish wedding book - Done! 24.
Order wedding album - Please don't judge...We've been married 5 years and I haven't even thought about it...maybe in 2015 25. Get ringssautered -Done! 26. Buy Jeff a nice watch- Oops...sorry honey. You've taken up racing one a month instead :) 27.
Get a T-Shirt quilt made - This one is still on this list...it's just finding the time... 28.
Refinish table in the man room - I can't even remember what table I was talking about...so we will just conside this one done... 29.
Sew stockings from wedding fabric - I ordered stockings from Pottery Barn...no need for this one any longer! 30.
Sew tree skirt from wedding fabric - I still want to do this! It's so fun looking back and seeing how much things have changed! Looks like I accomplished 23 of the 30 tasks...I think I'll take it! Perhaps I should make a before 35 list....
