30 While 30

This is a year of HUGE strides for us...we have a lot of "big" goals, but not unrealistic one.

We have been living with my mom since November 2011, and even though we love her, her company and the house, we do want our own place eventually. However, the financial benefits have been huge, and we can't ignore those.

Our major goal for this year involves money. Debt. Not fun stuff. But it has to be done!

So, here is my list of serious goals, fun goals, traveling, money, family, and more!

30 things to accomplish while 30 years old

What would be on your list? It was harder than I thought to think of 30 things to do! :)



  1. You are so goal oriented - I'm jealous! I wish I could be more like that. Good luck! You can do it!!!

  2. I love this idea! I had a 30 before 30 list, but didn't complete it! I should have moved it into 30, but now I only have two more weeks of that. Good luck finishing you list!
