30 by 30... only 5 more months!!!

I think I've reached the point where  I am one of the last  of my friends (that graduated in 2000!) to turn 30.  There was a really weird moment when hanging out with my friends Meghann & Maureen and our significant others when I realized I was the only one still in my 20s!  I think it has really made  the transition to my 30s a lot easier :)

1. Go to Vegas (May 2012)
2. Renew my passport and plan to use it
 Right now the honeymoon planning is WAY more fun that wedding planning!  St. Lucia? Jamaica? Playa del Carmen?  I can't decide!  But it will be international... which means we might need to get this passport train moving!

3.Take 30 Yoga Classes- 7
4.Average Running 30 miles/month-38.25 this month/ 31 average
5.Take 30 Spin Classes- 14
14. Average 3000 meters of swimming per week- 2100 average
 I think that the Yoga and Swimming are going to be the hardest ones for me.  Fitting in yoga classes while training for a half marathon and olympic triathlon is tough! And finding the time to swim is also tough as well.  If nothing else, it was a good goal and way to keep me in the pool/gym
 

 6. Bake 30 new recipes-2 new--28 total
It amazes me how the wedding planning has taken over cupcake baking!   Haha.   But I will make it to thirty in the next two weeks probably which is very exciting!

27. Chocolate Whiskey Cupcakes
28. Grocery Store Soft Cookies

9. Read 30 Books- 5 new-- 21 total
Lazy days at the pool has really helped my reading.   Waterproof kindle cover may be the BEST THING EVER

17.Fifty Shades Darker by E.L. James
 -- the second book in the 50 Shades of Grey series and my favorite (so far)
18. Maine by J. Courtney Sullivan 
-- Book Club book for this month.  I thought it was going to be a lot "lighter" but it was quite a heavy summer read
19.The Next Best Thing by Jennifer Weiner
-- new book by my favorite author.  It was cute, but not my favorite of her books. 
20. The Good Father by Diane Chamberlain
--- Diane is one of my favorite authors.   But this was not one of my favorite books by her.  I love her books cause there is always a twist, but there really wasn't a huge one in this.  Still a very enjoyable read and I had a hard time putting it down!
21. Seating Arrangements by Maggie Shipstead
--- I love books about weddings!   I kept waiting for this book to get even better but it was  just an enjoyable beach read 


10. Bake Cake Pops
Another Cake Pop experience coming soon...or cake "balls"

12. Eat an Entire Hot Dog 
18.  Send one "just because" card
I did forget about this this month... but I did send an engagement card to someone I know who just got engaged :)  

19. Have a "staycation" in DC and visit a museum I've never been to. (Feb 24) 
20. Go to a regular season NFL or NHL game.(March 25)
22. Complete at least three pins on pinterest/month
 I will admit that pinterest has been more about wedding  things than anything else these days!  But I have made a few things
 
Cake Cookies (Aka Grocery Store Soft Cookies)
Skinny Cornbread Casserole ---it was REALLY good 
Beef Enchiladas--- VERY good

23. Make one new recipe from each of my cookbooks, otherwise throw them out

And I have at least on more on the way to blog about!

25. Compete in another cupcake challenge

26. Watch all episodes of "Bones"
28.  Don't keep assignments longer than two weeks
I love summer :)

29.  Have one night of SSB every two weeks
Does wedding planning count???  To m this now means sitting on my couch with a glass of win and watching whatever trashy Summer TV show I have on my DVR... which is awesome.  

30. Buy bottles of wine costing $10 or more
I'm sticking to cubes :)
