Four Month Update – 30 by 30

Today I’m four months into my 30 by 30. I’m a third of the way to my 30th birthday. Not sure that I’m a third of the way done with my list… I made some good progress this month though!

As part of Project Food Blog, Hubby and I prepared an Indian meal consisting of garlic naan and chicken tikka masala.
I made these marshmallows! WOW are they amazing. Hubby absolutely LOVES these little guys. I see him sneaking them from the pantry on a regular basis.
I prepared my third new food this month as well! I roasted some beets for the bright pink hummus that I made. Hubby and I also enjoyed some roasted beets with goat cheese one night.

Hubby and I finally went to the cranberry festival this year. I can’t wait to take my nephew next year!

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 – done!
  • Go to the beach! (can you believe Hubby and I haven’t had a beach day since we moved to Boston 3 years ago) - done!
  • Go to the Cranberry Festival in October – done!
  • 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 got to meet a TON of babies when I was in Indy for Baby Wagner’s baby shower. And Hubby and I are going to meet him during the holiday break!
  • 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 - done!
  • 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)
  • Plan a Boston area food blogger event


Don’t forget about my Power of Pink Challenge – make something PINK by the end of the month to raise Breast Cancer Awareness!

    Great progress! I am 25 and should start thinking about making a list like this. You should definitely plan the Boston blogger event soon – I’d love to meet you! Are you attending Blogtoberfest this week?

    You are making great progress!

    About those molten lava cakes… do you have The Modern Baker? It’s the only recipe I’ve found for them that actually worked. If you want it, let me know.

    Good for you! Look at all the progress you made! Can I get in on some of these? Like maybe the volunteer project, the girl’s night, definitely the Boston blogger event and the donuts? :)
