30 before 30 update.

I've been slacking... on a lot of things lately, one being my 30 before 30 list.

oh well.  I'm allowed.  :)   it's my list, if I want to slack then I'm gonna slack ;)

so, a couple weekends Steven and I went to Boston for a couple of days and the weekend before that we went to an auction - 2 things down!!!

here's the list with my updates...

1. pay off my car. [her name is Blair and I love her!]
2. do something fun with my blog related to fashion and/or fitness.
3. get my third tattoo. [something fun and unique]
4. research & open a college savings account for g-cubed. done!!! made this momma feel really good :)

26. travel to a city Steven and I have never been to before. [maybe Boston.. not sure yet!] 3.22.13 - 3.24.13 - went to Boston - beautiful city - but still very much a country girl!!!
27. organize, then donate the [millions] of toys the kids no longer play with.
28. 5k, 10k, half marathon. [need to pray about this.]
29. shoot a gun. [for the first time!]
30. have a kick butt 30th birthday party!

I've still got a lot to get done - I doubt I will accomplish everything - some of this stuff costs too much money right now that we really don't have - like the painting, the landscaping and redecorating my office.  I'm just going to focus on the inexpensive (or free) fun stuff!!!
