What Happened to the 30 Before 30?

Last  July, I started a personal challenge for myself.  I made a list of things that I’d like to accomplish in the six months leading up to my 30th birthday. Well if you can use addition, you will see that those six months have long since passed and that I am now nearly 3 months […]

18. Learn How to French Braid (30 Before 30)

My 30th birthday is closing in on me, and while I think I may need a grace period to actually complete everything on my  30 Before 30 list, I am trying to knock out as many as I can squeeze in! One of the things on my list was to learn how to french braid.  […]

19. Wean Lydia (30 Before 30)

This particular item on my 30 Before 30 list is bittersweet. Lydia, my sweet little toddler has now been nursing for 29 months and she is quite attached to her time with Mommy.  While I definitely applaud and encourage women to breastfeed as long as they and their child want to do so, I have […]

5. Lose 5-8lbs and Tone Up (30 Before 30)

I have to revise number five on my 30 Before 30 list.  I’ve been lazy about getting into a good workout routine and while I’d still like to get healthier, I’ll probably be spending the next few months gaining weight. Yep!  We’ll be welcoming baby #4 some time next summer! Guess that’s a good enough […]

20. Go On An All Day Date With My Hubby & 28. Visit Grandfather Mountain and Walk on the Mile High Swinging Bridge(30 Before 30)

*Happy dance!* *Happy dance!*  I knocked out TWO of the tasks on my 30 Before 30 list in one fell swoop! Yesterday marked our seventh anniversary and since it fell on a Monday and Alec had to work, we decided to spend the day together on Sunday to celebrate.  This year was special because we […]

15. Go Hiking (30 Before 30)

Well, I did it! I completed my first task from my 30 Before 30 List!  With the help of my friend Abbey from Just a Peek, I went hiking for the first time in YEARS! I have to admit that I was a little apprehensive because of my lack of fitness it’s been so long […]

30 Before 30

Today marks exactly six months before I am no longer a twenty something.  *sigh*  I know it’s ridiculous to say that I feel old because logically, I know that thirty is definitely not old, I have still been struggling with this approaching birthday. I feel like my life, especially since getting married nearly seven years […]
