  1. Great list! Between the two of us, we've done a few of those things. Of course, we didn't do all of them before we turned thirty!

    Great picture! We're really enjoying your daily shots!

  2. Oh to have five years to complete at 30 before 30. I guess I could write a 40 before 40 list. I have almost 10 whole years for that!

  3. Love your list! And pasta sauce is really super easy to jar, I just did it for the first time last summer.

  4. Hi stopped by from Finding new friends and now one of your newest followers. Hope you stop by for a visit and follow Have a great weekend.

  5. Just joined your blog and read through a few posts. Can't wait to read more. :)

  6. I am with you on #8 and I truly hope this happens before I'm 30 as well! My sisters and I tried canning last fall and my one recommendation would be to try this with a group of friends because everything seems to happen all at once when you're canning and having some extra hands helps control the chaos. Lastly, I hope you get the spa treatment like a Princess, in the meantime I would love it if you tried the recipe I recently posted for my handmade brown sugar foot scrub! It is super easy to make and gives you a mini spa feel too!

  7. I would love to go to the Cherry Blossom festival in DC but I think my 40 before 40 would be to see it in Japan or Korea.

    Maybe deer seeing not into the hunting part. Though I think my dogs would love to go on a hunt.

    Getting treated like a princess what girl wouldn't have that on their list. I know it would be on mine.

  8. I've done a lot of those for my list! I went to DC for the first time right after the cherry blossom festival. It was still pretty and not as crowded. I LOVED swimming with a dolphin! That might have been my favorite.

    I still have kiss in the rain and get in the best shape of my life on my list...working on them. I'm 31 now, but I only gave myself 2 years which obviously wasn't enough time! Oh well!
