30 by 30

I was inspired recently to make a bit of a bucket list. I decided that seeing as I am turning 30yrs old in 4 years that I would make a list of 30 things I want to accomplish by the time I am 30. Some of them are fairly easy, some are left up to God's timing, and some of them will require a real commitment and drive to get them accomplished.  Take a look...

  1. Travel to Cambodia again. COMPLETE!
  2. Sew an evening gown.
  3. Have another baby. (Up to God with this one)
  4. Bike the 22km around Rottnest Island. We biked part way last week biking 16km. I enjoyed it so much that I want to cycle around the entire island.
  5. Read all of Jane Austin's novels. IN PROGRESS
  6. Travel to Europe.
  7. Go out to dinner and eat dessert before the main meal.
  8. Visit Caerlaverock castle.
  9. Go Rock'n'Roll dancing again. I used to do rock'n'roll lessons when I was younger and really miss it.
  10. Act and sing in a musical. Again, something I used to do when I was younger.
  11. Complete a 365 photo project taking one photo a day for an entire year. IN PROGRESS
  12. Grow my hair long enough to touch my bottom. IN PROGRESS
  13. Give blood. I am terrified of needles. Enough said. COMPLETE!

  15. Spend one whole day without talking. Those of you who know me know that this could be a tough one! 
  16. Witness a birth.
  17. Breastfeed - this is dependant on task number 3.
  18. Learn to Crochet. COMPLETE!
  19. Eat Sushi. My hubby has been trying to persuade me to try it for years but I'm too chicken. hmmm... maybe I'll try the chicken... - COMPLETE!
  20. Surprise hubby with a weekend away somewhere.
  21. Complete my family tree cross stitch.
