30 Things To Do Before I'm 30

Okay, here we go... I go this idea from a blog I read often called Whatever...where in turn I think she borrowed the idea from a blog she reads (and probably so on and so forth)
  I actually have this as a scrapbooking layout but for the purpose of having it here it is in list form.  I'm gonna be updating it when I complete each one:)  Keep in mind that I wrote this back in Jan.



1. learn and get external flash



2.plant an old fashioned flower garden


3.join a fun mom's group
i joined a bunco group, what a blast:)

4.finish writing my book


5.establish 'family night devotions'


6.join a church family


7.go to a big flea market/junk show


8.do a Beth Moore Bible study


9.paint the house


10. share my faith with unbelievers


11. finish the Outlander series


12. fit into my favorite size 8 jeans


13.refurbish some furniture


14.form our house rules and binder


15.  have a diaper free house


16. go to the auction house with Aubrey


17. start using coupons


18. give up sugary drinks


19. prioritize my time wisely


20. Make a bosom friend


21. sew something


22.  read 3 classic novels


23. feel good about who I am


24. spend a whole day with Didit


25. do family pictures @ the beach


26. have a big 4th of July or summer party here


27. get to the Dr for a check up


28.take a weekend trip with Honey


29.study something I haven't learned


30. watch Passion of the Christ and Schindler's List



now as you can see some of these are general, some specific. 
    Some probably sound odd, some maybe not.

Yes I AM writing a book.  I've been writing books since I knew how to write.  But I actually would like to finish this one and look into publishing

Yes Didit is a person. My grandma in fact, though she's never been grandma, just Didit.  Why?  Because every time I got hurt or something happened my mom would say "Grandma did it."  And that's how it happened, and she's been Didit ever since.

No I haven't seen either Passion or Schindler's List.  Why?  Because  I know they will emotionally exhaust me.  But sometimes that needs to be done.


And that's all folks:)

God Bless,
Mandy

I love your list! I was also inspired by Meg and wrote one of my own...I need to dig it out and see if I've made any progress??

Also - Thanks for the Outlander suggestion that you posted on my blog. I also cracked up a little at your disclaimers about it. That's exactly what I always find myself doing...because you just never know how someone else may feel about certain things?!
