30 Before 30

Alright folks! I turned 29 on Wednesday! I don't believe that I have EVER eaten so many cupcakes in such a short time span as I have this week.  Sheeesshhh... but they were all so good!!

In the spirit of turning 29, I thought I'd fall in line and create a 30 before 30 list like all the cool kids are doing.  I've got one year.. No, make that like 363.258961 days to complete this stuff.   Here we go:

1. Go to Boston.  - Not during the marathon.
2. Go to Washington, DC.  - History girl should've gone a long time ago.
3. Go to Toronto / Denver.
4. Go deep sea fishing.
5. Memorize a book of the Bible.  - not Psalms y'all.
6. Gross habit alert: Stop biting my fingernails.  - It's mostly a habit when I'm really nervous.
7. Eat a hot dog from Snoopy's.
8. Watch Seasons 1-10 consecutively of FRIENDS.  - Still haven't done that.
9. Make homemade icecream.
10. Take a tour of the World of Coke.
11. Visit Chapel Hill's campus.
12. Successfully make a batch of homemade chocolate chip cookies.
13. Run a color something 5K.
14. Participate in a 5K with my mama.
15. Go on a hike.
16. Climb to the top of the Sombrero at South of the Border.
17. Go somewhere for "brunch" on a Sunday, like all the cool kids do.
18. Go to a food truck rodeo.
19. Watch Top Gun and The Breakfast Club.  - Apparently it's a shame this hasn't ever happened.
20. Drive a truck. - preferably a z71.
21. Finish/write a book.
22. Learn how to do a fishtail braid.
23. Visit the Outer Banks.
24. Make a headboard for my bed.
25. Attempt to surf or wakeboard.
26. Tailgate at a professional or college sporting event
27. Play a song on the piano. - 6 years of lessons, and I've got nothing.
28. Learn how to play poker.
29. Buy a computer. - Long overdue.
30. Learn how to knit.  - Yes, this is pushing me into cat lady zone quick! Yikes!

Gosh! I feel the pressure already!
Birthday week has been so much fun! I am thankful for the many friends who helped me celebrate!
