30-while-30 Eleven Month Update

So I’ve made a decision about this list. It’s a fun guide of things I want to do, but I’m going to revamp it around my birthday and turn it more into a list of things I want to do in my 30s. Quite a few of the things on this list are going to end up on that list, and some won’t. I’m ok with that because the list is here to remind me to get out there and live life to it’s fullest. Here’s a look at how I’m doing on my 30-while-30 list.

  • Send birthday cards to my and Hubby’s families (including siblings, parents, nephews, etc) – So far, so good on this one

    Worky work – busy bee! Way to go. Perhaps instead of giving up something this month, try to incorporate something healthy more often – like more greens, etc. Just a thought!

    That’s a really good suggestion Sara. I hadn’t thought of that…
