Thirty by Thirty Progress

Happy Monday everyone! Last year I decided to make myself a little “Thirty by Thirty” bucket list of things I’d like to do before I reach my next decade. I’m sad to say that in the 16 months since I published the list I’ve only completed 6 of my 30 goals. I’m hoping that posting my progress (or lack thereof) will motivate me to cross some more items off my list.

So here is my Thirty by Thirty list as printed last year, with completed items crossed off and my notes in italics.

1. Visit New York City

2. Travel to California

3. Take a trip with girlfriends to somewhere fun like Vegas or California

4. Go back to Europe

5. Complete JCCC’s interior decorating certificate (this May!) Completed May 2013 Smile 

6. Start my own interior decorating business Coming soon!

7. Be featured in a print publication like Spaces or KC H&G Not quite as big as Spaces, but last November our home was featured in Ink Magazine!


8. Be featured on a big blog like Apartment Therapy (and not as part of a contest I entered myself in Smile)

9. Get 100 followers on my blog Might nix this one as “followers” is a loose term, but I am up to 84 facebook fans!

10. Get back to my wedding day weight

11. Have a baby. No rush on this one though, don’t get too excited Winking smile

12. Become an aunt. Obviously I have no control over this but it would be nice
