Three Month Update – 30 by 30

Today I’m three months into my 30 by 30.

Hubby and I were able to catch the last movie of the season on the halfshell. It was a beautiful August evening and we walked the 4 miles from our place to the halfshell. We packed a picnic dinner and brought a blanket. It was a great date night and we both enjoyed the movie Up, which we had never seen. I can’t wait to go again next summer and to take my nephew B too!

I also had a chance to cook with some new ingredients this month. The first new ingredient I tried was fresh figs. I made homemade fig newtons and this crostini with goat cheese, caramelized onions, and a fig reduction. I also made this massaged kale salad. I will definitely be using these ingredients more often from here on out!

Cooking/Baking:

Health/Fitness:

Boston/Travel:

  • Visit at least 3 new cities (1: San Francisco)
  • 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 – started – it’s on the calendar and we’re definitely going to make it happen!
  • Take a spontanious trip with girlfriends

Relationships:

  • 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 – started – I have travel plans in place to make this happen
  • Babysit/Spoil my new nephew as much as I can – started – Hubby and I babysat him for the first time by ourselves in August! He was an angel the entire night and didn’t fuss at all.
  • Send birthday cards to my siblings, parents, and nephew
  • Plan a date-day with Hubby

Other:

  • Take a cooking class – started – I am taking a baking class tomorrow! I’ll be sure to write about it next week.
  • 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 (1: volunteered to take care of the ongoing can-recycling project at work)
