One More Week

Technically in less than one week, I will be embracing a milestone birthday. I don’t have much planned for my birthday. Some friends and I are going out, it’s ladies night so we’ll be drinking for free and having a great time. I took the following day off so that I could sleep in with dude since he’s off that day. I need to do a tad bit of shopping for my vacation. All my summer clothes fall off me. It’s a good thing, don’t get me wrong, but I need deeper pockets! I’ve watched as many of my friends have already had their 30th birthday. I’ve pondered as to whether or not I was looking forward to this “big one”, and in the past couple months, I can honestly say that I absolutely CAN NOT wait to be 30! Forty is the new thirty so perhaps thirty is the new twenty!? We’ll soon find out.

When my second marriage to DB began to falter, I was very weary of this upcoming birthday, however in the past couple months I’ve become a new person. My attitude is different, I am more confident, and I know that the next years of my life are going to be fabulous. With that being said, I’ve made a “bucket” list of sorts. In the next decade, I hope to accomplish these 30 things.

  1. see each state in the US (I have 5 left)
  2. earn a Bachelor’s degree – in what I have no idea
  3. start a successful photography studio
  4. get out of debt
  5. become a mother – even if it’s on my own.
  6. travel to Europe
  7. see the Eiffel Tower
  8. visit ancient Rome
  9. sky dive

  15. Fix it up myself – well for the most part
  16. build myself a scrap/craft room
