30 Before 30


I saw Biana’s 30 before 30 a couple of months ago and have been working on these ideas since then.  Tomorrow, it will be exactly 19 months until I turn 30.  I am constantly thinking of the next place I want to travel or what I’d like to try next, so why not streamline my goals?

Wanderlust - 16x20 inches on A2. Inspiring travel quote typography art poster print. on Etsy, $57.00

1. Travel to one new place every year. (Some trips were around North Carolina, others around the Southeast.  See my Travel tab for guides!)

2. Visit Italy and head off the beaten path while there.

3. Travel out West to Vegas, San Francisco, Los Angeles (hey Andrea!), Seattle, and Vancouver.

4. Treat DG to a surprise trip.

5. Travel to the Caribbean.

6. Go on a trip together with my parents (who have never flown on an airplane).

7. See Phantom of the Opera on Broadway.

8. Attend a masquerade ball.

Set a goal that makes you want to jump out of bed in the morning. #TheColorRun

9. Be accepted to Southern Blog Society.

10. Attend more social events in Raleigh. (This has been my favorite)

11. Continue to grow Champagne & Suburbs. (Check out my relaunch here).

12. Attend a fashion week; preferrably Charleston Fashion Week.

13. Attend a blog conference. (#TBSCon)

14. Do more with event planning. (Did it, still enjoy it, but decided only for fun)

Key to success is perseverence

15. Take an interior design course.

16. Learn HTML coding.

17. Start practicing calligraphy again.

18. Learn how to use my DSLR camera.

19. Take a knife skills class at Whisk.

20. Create a cookbook of my favorite recipes, even it’s just for my mom and me (I use a Rifle Paper Co recipe box to house my recipes now).

21. Grow more herbs and vegetables in my garden. (Did this, but I don’t like the light/heat that my garden gets)

22. Stop being shy about my passions and persue them more. (Still figuring that out, but it’s been a fun journey)

She believed she could, so she did I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief (Mark 9:24)

23. Pay off our debt, including DG’s student loans.

24. Buy a really good pair of black heels.

25. Practice different hair styles that I can easily wear. #frizzyhairproblems

26. Purchase new(er) cars for both DG and me. (Checked off June 18, 2015)

27. Sell our house and buy the farm house and land I’ve we’ve been dreaming of for the past three years.

28. Find a workout routine I can stick to all seasons. (Pure Barre, y’all)

29. Have only one job–not 4. (I’m down to 3, but hoping to trim that down)

And finally…


30.  Take a trip somewhere with friends to celebrate my 30th! (Stay tuned)

    Great 30 for 30, lady! I need to update mine since I'm a tad over thirty, haha. I love Phantom, it is amazing anytime but just incredible on Broadway. I hope you get to see it. And I want to take a cooking class too, just think it would be fun, right?

    The knife skills course sounds amazing and you'll be a chef before you know it!! I love everything on your list and might even add a few more things to mine!!! I love the surprise trip for DG I want to do one for Gary too! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    Love this list! I've never made a list like this, I'm already past 30 (yikes!) so mine would have to be 40 before 40 I guess!

    Sounds like you've already done some soul-searching. I love this!!! You definitely made me stop and think and I just love your goals. I'll turn 30 in about a year and a half, too I guess. Wait, now I kind of remember this – I think your birthday is near mine? I'm January 22. Now what do I want to accomplish before then? Hmm…
