30 before 30

It's official, I'm in my late twenties. Today I'm 28, in fact. More than a number, this birthday has some significance to me. Not sure if its a bout of nostalgia or my type-A leanings, but I'm preparing to meet the rest of my twenties with gusto and made a list of the top 30 things I'd like to do before I turn 30. Some are simple, some are not; some are whimsical, some are not. But I love lists and hope that this one will lay the framework for some new adventures. Hopefully I'll be able to share some with you here on Pink to Green.
30 before 30
1) Have 1000 followers on Pink to Green
2) Host an al fresco movie night in our backyard
3) Go camping at least 2 times
4) Learn to preserve food or can the food from our garden

Oh my goodness, how I love this list! I need to sit down and make one, too. Hubby and I recently made a "Baby List" instead of a "Bucket List" of all the things we would like to do before having children. Thanks for sharing!


p.s. You will love Turkey! If you go to Istanbul you must go to the spice market and Topkapi Palace.

Love your list! I did a before 30 list although I got pregnant and couldn't finish the list. I need to retry this year! Thanks for inspiring me!

Shoot--I'm late, but I hope you had an excellent birthday! Here's a tip for whoopie pies. Be careful not to overmix your cake batter, and they should be fine.

Also, if you need a snail mail pen pal, I can be one. :) Let me know!

Love the list. :) I didn't do a 30 b4 30 list... but I did do a 30 things while I am 30 list. Funny thing is that many of the same things are on the list, like sending a letter snail mail.
