30-by-30 How’d I do?

No Friday Favs today because it’s my birthday! Today is the big 3-0! I did a great job on my list and am proud of how far I made it. I’d like to thank everyone who helped me make it as far as I did. Throughout the year, many of my readers, friends, and family members asked me how I was doing on my list and how they could help. I couldn’t have done it without you guys!

Cooking/Baking:

Health/Fitness:

  • Get to my goal weight – This one didn’t happen…
  • Work out on a regular basis – I’m crossing this off the list, but it’s an ongoing process. Hubby and I made a rule that we’re “grounded” from technology (that means no blogging for me!) if we haven’t had some sort of physical activity in the last 48 hours. It’s been working really well. The one night I was grounded, I caught up on some magazine reading and went to bed early.
  • Complete the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer – done!

Boston/Travel:

  • Visit at least 3 new cities (1: San Francisco, CA, 2: Hershey, PA, 3: Destin, FL 4: Portland, ME)
  • 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 – My good friends K and L planned a spontaneous trip for us. Well, it was spontaneous for me, but they knew what was going to happen. It was a lot of fun! Thanks again girls!

Relationships:

  • Talk to younger siblings (A and L) on a regular basis – done!
  • Plan/host a girls night (in or out) – done!
  • Eat lunch with my coworkers at least once a week – done!
  • Meet my friend’s babies in the Midwest – done! 
  • Babysit/Spoil my new nephew as much as I can – done!
  • Send birthday cards to my siblings, parents, and nephew – done!
  • Plan a date-day with Hubby – done!

Other:

  • Take a cooking class done!
  • Read the photography books my dad got me – started, but not completed… 
  • Finish all the nearly-complete kitchen projects – started, but not completed. Do house projects ever get done?!? 
  • Fully de-clutter our place – started, but it’s an ongoing battle to keep our tiny condo clutter-free
  • Volunteer for something at least four times
  • Plan a Boston area food blogger event – while Cupcake Camp wasn’t a bloggers only event, I did help plan that and it was a great success! We raised over $2300 for Lovin’ Spoonfuls! And I planned an ice cream party at my house for a few bloggers. Not a huge event, but it counts!

    I turn 29 in about a month and I’m having a tough time making my 30 by 30 list…I have no idea how I’ll actually complete the items on the list! 🙂 You’re doing great so far and thanks for inspiring me to make a list of my own!

    You are doing an awesome job on this list. I should have motivated myself to do one of these as well. Wonder if I could make a list I could finish in 10 months. 🙂
