Dirty Thirty Update!

Today marks the THREE month warning until my 30th birthday! Instead of freaking out and hyperventilating into a brown paper bag, like I want to.... I decided to check in on my Dirty Thirty List.

If you missed that blog post, you can read it here

Remember I designated the first fifteen things to complete BEFORE I am thirty (which gives me 3 months to finish) and the last fifteen DURING my 30's. Let's check out my progress.


Before I am Thirty-

1. Get Pregnant- I'm on a mission.....

2. Obtain my Master's Degree -done!!!

3. Visit Puerto Rico -Going in May

4. Go on my first cruise- Going in May

5. Find a better job

6. Learn Italian...Hello Rosetta Stone! -I'm working on it. I am currently working through the first part of it ...doing it over and over to remember it. L'automobile e Giallo.

7. Get 100 blog followers- Currently at 69 followers.....

8. See a Broadway Show (I don't do this enough)

9. Lose weight (This will not count if I get pregnant)

10. Successfully give up candy and soda for lent- I'm kicking ass on this one....Although I have replaced candy with cookies!  I like cookies!

11. Finish the Sookie Stackhouse books - Almost done with the third one!

12. Make a donation to St. Jude's Children's Hospital

13. Try to eat five new foods (I tend to be a creature of habit)- Tried Guacamole and Mushrooms.  Guacamole tastes so good I can't believe I never ate it before.  Mushrooms taste like beef...not really something I would crave...EVER! 3 left!

14. Try 25 new recipes (see above!) -Tried to make rice pudding.  Tasted AWESOME....but it was more like rice soup! 24 left!

15. Buy a new purse- Why hello there my gorgeous new red Kate Spade purse.  Mommy missed you!

WOW!  I'm totally all sorts of awesome!!!

I'm right there with you on giving up soda for lent. I've weathered all of the cravings. I will make it to Easter.

Here's some foods to try: Dragon Fruit. It looks crazy but it tastes awesome. Quinoa - a great alternative to rice and it makes a great salad.

Lookin' Good! Seems to me you're off to a great start, keep it up!!

I agree with Pregnant Yuppy, Quinoa is soooo DELICIOUS!

Wow, 10 new followers since you wrote this! Very impressive!

I had a really hard time approaching my 30s too. I kept obsessing over how I started trying to get pregnant at 24 and I never thought I would be 30 and childless. It really ruined that birthday for me. I don't know why I put so much pressure on myself about it. So, I say, screw numbers and just enjoy your birthday!!!
