30 things to do before I’m 30

Today is my last birthday in my twenties. I made a list a couple years ago of things I wanted to do. I was inspired by Amy and have seen similar lists pop up all over the place. I decided I wanted to make a list of 30 things I need to do before I turn 30. I’ll keep you updated on my progress as the year goes on.


  • Bagels
  • Marshmallows
  • Molten Lava Cakes
  • Baked Doughnuts
  • Cheesecake
  • Indian Meal (chicken tikka masala and naan)
  • Sushi
  • Continue to bake for a good cause
  • Try three foods I’ve never had



  • Visit at least 3 new cities
  • Pack a picnic dinner and see a movie on the Esplanade
  • Go to the beach! (can you believe Hubby and I haven’t had a beach day since we moved to Boston 3 years ago)
  • Go to the Cranberry Festival in October
  • Take a spontanious trip with girlfriends


  • Talk to younger siblings (A and L) on a regular basis
  • Plan/host a girls night (in or out)
  • Go visit my little brother’s college dorm room
  • Meet my friend’s babies in the Midwest
  • Babysit/Spoil my new nephew as much as I can
  • Send birthday cards to my siblings, parents, and nephew
  • Plan a date-day with Hubby


  • Take a cooking class
  • Read the photography books my dad got me
  • Finish all the nearly-complete kitchen projects
  • Fully de-clutter our place
  • Volunteer for something at least four times
  • Plan a Boston area food blogger event
