A VERY Belated Happy Birthday to ME! Jul 12

So, I hit a milestone birthday back on May 2 (Life gets in the way a lot with 2 kids underfoot! 😉 ), and as part of the celebration, I decided to come up with 30 Things That I Want To Do In My 30s. It took a surprisingly long time to create this list, and it still doesn’t have 30 things on it. I’ve been very lucky to have already had some cool adventures. 😉

30 Things to do in your 30s
1. Take a cruise. I’ve done this several times already, but think I should go on several more in my lifetime. 😉
2. Visit Europe, specifically London and Paris, possibly Rome and Venice. (I get to go to Prague this summer!)
3. Do some serious hiking and camping. If anyone already does this and has advice on how to do this as a female, please, send me an email.
4. Eliminate the chemicals from my diet. I don’t need to consume hydrolyzed or hydrogenized anything and neither do my children. It will take me several years to gather the knowledge and skills to do this.
5. Buy a boat. (Was supposed to be our 30th birthday present. Instead, we bought a popup camper ;))
6. Donate to worthwhile charities and causes, such as cancer research, autism, pre-natal and pediatric care, and possibly a scholarship to help worthwhile individuals get the education they need to make something of themselves. This probably can’t happen until my husband’s student loans are paid off, but hopefully before the end of the decade.
7. Hire a maid to take care of the cleaning, so I can focus on cooking and spending time with the family. I want to be the mom that goes on all the field trips.
8. Buy a house that has a guest bedroom, and maybe even mother/mother-in-law houses.
9. See the national landmarks west of the Mississippi River. I’ve never been west of the Mississippi River, and I’d really like to see the Grand Canyon, Yosemite, and Forks, Washington.
10. Constantly add to my personal cookbook to guarantee something to pass on that documents family recipes.
11. Take a road trip up the eastern seaboard and make sure to visit all the relatives along the way!
12. See the Olympics in person. (I almost got to do that this summer. So close!)
13. Catch up my daughters’ scrapbooks and baby books to their milestones
14. Throw a blow-out 30th birthday party (long story as to why this DIDN’T happen, but we still had an awesome time)
15. Times Square on New Year’s Eve
16. Grow a vegetable garden. I try every year and have yet to really succeed. Everything burns up in the oppressive summer heat.
17. See a Broadway show on Broadway

What would you add to your list? I’d love to actually get to 30 things!
