It seems like those 30 before 30 lists are everywhere right now. Get inspired for your own milestone bucket list with ideas from our birthday list.

From television to Pinterest, I have seen these “30 before 30” lists everywhere. I like to think of myself as a goal-oriented gal, so I decided to make my own list. I’m giving myself plenty of time to accomplish these tasks, as I don’t turn 30 for another 3.5 years. I tried to choose tasks that were attainable; every so often I will post an update about my progress.

My 30 before 30 list

  1. Have another baby!
  2. Attend /participate in an organized rally or protest for a cause/organization I believe in
  3. Learn the basics of web-development (I want to start my own website!)
  4. Make (and perfect) bread pudding
  5. Get paid to write something
  6. Help a stranger
  7. Put my idea for a children’s book down on paper
  8. Learn how to sew a button on a piece of clothing
  9. Refinish a piece of furniture
  10. Climb a tree
  11. Send a handwritten letter to someone I care about
  12. Grow my hair out to my shoulders
  13. Learn to walk in high-heels (picture a t-rex in heels..that is me)
  14. Take a pottery-class
  15. Go camping with my hubs and toddler
  16. Visit a different country
  17. Buy a pencil skirt, and get it tailored to fit me (Being 5’2 and having hips, you wouldn’t believe how hard it is to find a skirt that fits well!)
  18. Cut out alcohol for 30 days
  19. Learn 20-30 yoga poses, so I can do them anywhere
  20. Host a fancy dinner party
  21. Visit a winery (not during my 30 days of sobriety, of course..)
  22. Pay off our two credit cards
  23. Buy our first home
  24. Learn a few conversational Spanish phrases
  25. Learn to play tennis
  26. Read 30 books
  27. Learn to get up in the morning without hitting the snooze button
  28. Buy more clothes second-hand
  29. Travel to a city in the Midwest
  30. I do re-do! The first time around, Chad and I were uber stressed about our wedding (financing it, and planning it while I was still in college); I was also suffering from a pretty significant eating disorder at the time. We want to re-new our vows, and have fun this time!

OK, it’s your turn. What’s on your 30 before 30 list?

Is your 30th birthday creeping up on you? Check out this 30 before 30 list and get ideas for your own!

Kristi Blust

Kristi and her husband are the parents of a deliciously mischievous girl, P, born in 2012, and a handsome little fella they call E, born in 2014. Her days are spent working as a school psychologist in rural Pennsylvania. When she's not working, you can find Kristi chasing her children around the local library, reading, and/or watching the Food Network. By blogging, she hopes to offer some much-needed comic relief to her fellow warrior mamas, as well as generate some thoughtful discussion about work, life, raising children, and trying to maintain some sanity in the process.
