Thirty before 30

This year I turn the big 3-0 (on the 17th of December for those who'd like to mark it in their calendars). So I figure I need some sort of a bucket list. I’m not the first to do it, I’m not even the first to blog it. But I’m gonna do it anyway.

Plus it lets me make a cool logo.

Some of the things on here are really obvious. Some will be easy and some I almost didn't put on because I think they'll be really, really hard to achieve (great start hey?). But maybe, just maybe, putting it on the blogosphere will spur me on to do it. So let’s give it a whirl.

1.  Finish renovating the house
Our renovations are almost finished… they’ve been almost finished for two years. I want a floor in my kitchen – it’s currently just concrete and some tatters of the old lino. The walls need painting too

2.   Buy a new pair of shoes

3.   Go on a holiday with Map Guy and Tricky

5.   Start dancing lessons with Map Guy

6.   Expand Where’s My Glow?
My goal is to reach 200 followers. I’m currently sitting at just over 100 so that’s almost double. I’ve written a plan of attack so let’s see how it goes (you can help by suggesting me to your friends *wink wink nudge nudge*)

8.   Read and comment on more blogs

9.   Get my hair done

10. Cook more food from scratch

11. Attend the Aussie Bloggers’ Conference
I’m booked in and I’m ready and raring to go! If you didn’t already know this then you’re living under a blogrock. I’m going thanks to HealthyChart and Baby Goes Retro (and a few others who will be revealed very shortly – oooh mystery!)

12. Clean out my kitchen cupboards

13. Have a facial

14. Keep breastfeeding Tricky

15. Enter more competitions

16. See some amazing live music with Map Guy

17. Clean out my wardrobe

18. Hang photos up on the walls

19. Have a nice 1st birthday party for Tricky
I don’t want a circus, a petting zoo or a jumping castle. I don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars on something that he won’t even remember. I’d like a small gathering of the people who are important in our lives, a BBQ and some photos of Tricky eating cake

20. Write some poetry

21. Spend some time in Albany so that Tricky gets more time with his rellies

22. Clean out the Man Cave (the study where Map Guy spends most of his time)

23. Lose weight
Yeah, that’s a bit vague. I lost almost 30kg in the lead up to my wedding but then getting sick and having a baby (and eating loads of crap) meant most of that has crept back on in the last three years. I’d like to get back there

24. Make a new friend

25. Keep seeing a counselor (keep’s the craziness at bay)

26. Go on a date with Map Guy
Just me and him. I want to go to dinner and see a movie – it’s terribly cliché but I still want it

27. Be more assertive

28. Keep attending Mothers’ Group

29. Go swimming
I used to swim for a club when I was a kid (I could even do the tumble turny things), but I haven’t gone swimming in almost three years – it’s a body confidence thing, or rather, a lack thereof

30. Plan a kick-ass 30th birthday party

So there you have it. If you've managed to read all the way down to here, kudos to you! 

So what's on your bucket list?

Meet Glowless at the Aussie Bloggers' Conference thanks to HealthyChart and Baby Goes Retro!

    A terrific list.
    I especially like the idea of dance lessons.
    Looking forward to seeing you tick each one off your list,

    Felicity x

    That is an awesome " 30-before-30 " list! And most them dont sound too tricky...the only thing you forgot to tell us is how long you have to achieve it all. Is your birthday in the middle of the year or towards the end?

  3. Awesome job!! Look forward to watching you cross them all off!! I'm pleased to say I am able to cross 1 or 2 off mine at the moment.... I think that makes 5 outta 30 lol
    Wishing you the best of luck xox

  4. Wow! A great and do-able list! Good luck!

  5. I love your plan for Tricky's first birthday. You have just described what we did for both of The Farmchildren when they turned one so I am probably a bit biased.

    I think you have already started the biggest adventure of your life - being someone's Mum!

  6. Um ...I don'tT YOU have motivated me!!!
    Bucket list here I come!!

  7. I'm 6 months into my 30 befre 30 (I gave myself 2 years) and I need to get a move on!

  8. Thanks for linking up. Sounds like you have quite a year ahead! I especially like #11. :)

  9. So many things on my list similar to yours! But the biggie is growing my blog and blog business!

    Have a great weekend!

  10. #26: Yes! Do it, luv. And if you feel like you can't make it happen... refer to your #27. And then do it! xoxo Love your list.
