30 before I’m 30!


So tomorrow is my 29th birthday.

I’m kind of freaked out that it’s the last year of my 20’s. I mean seriously! Where did the last 9 years go??? Seems like it was just a couple of weeks ago that I moved out of my parents place and in with some friends!

OH man! I’m getting old!!!!

  1. This is a great list! I'm feeling like I should have made myself a 30 before 30 list. There's still time. :) Thanks for the idea. Keep us updated on your progress!

  2. Happy almost birthday!! Im so excited to be on your list.. eeekkksss!! Cant wait :)

  3. Love the list! That makes me want to make one!

  4. Sounds like a pretty great list!

  5. I'm still doing my 30 before 30 list and I'm half way through 31...perhaps I was a little ambitious on the budget front for mine! Mine is now lots of things long. Gotta love having goals. And if it makes you feel better, being 30 is's 31 that blows. Then you are OVER thirty.
