The Busy Giffs: 30 by 30: 6 months to go!

30 by 30: 6 months to go!

Yey for a 30 by 30 update!
Since it's August, I have 6 months to go until I turn 30. sadlt, some of these things will not happen but I'm crossing a few more off!

5. See a show on Broadway.

Thanks to Blogger Bash in New York City and my luck in winning lottery tickets, I was able to see Aladdin on Broadway! It was so so amazing!

19. Start (and keep) a vegetable garden.  

All summer we have been enjoying tomatos right from our deck! Because we live at the end of a dead end with woods next to us, anything we plant gets eaten by the deer so a full garden just isn't possible until we put up a fence, but we have some plants on the back deck and have been enjoying mint, cilantro, cherry tomatoes, and even a green pepper! We're hoping to do the fence next spring and then we can have a bigger garden!

20. Spend a day getting pampered. 

This actually was over the course of two days... manicure, eye brows, a wax, professional make up and hair... it was glorious. But it was for a very special occasion... which leads me to the next check mark...

26. Do a boudoir photo shoot!

I have always thought they looked so fun but with my stomach, there was no way it would look good. I can't even tell you how amazing these pictures are. I wanted to really surprise Dave with an anniversary gift he would never expect and these were perfect. Very tasteful and pretty, rather than dirty or pornographic. My photographer was amazing and I'll be sharing the more appropriate ones soon!

So with those being updated, here's the new list!
I have accomplished so much and there's still a little time to accomplish more!

1. Be an English Teacher (have my own classroom)
2. Have baby #2.
3. Buy a house.
4. Own a pair of Manolos. (Really not my lifestyle anymore-- might be a pair of Jack Rogers instead)
5. See a show ON Broadway.
6. Run a 5k.
7. Weigh 150 lbs again. (muscle weighs more than fat-- this will never happen. Maybe we'll say, be a size 8/10)
8. Get my Masters degree.
9. Do a photography challenge for a month.
10. Pay for someone else in the drive through behind me.
11. Get my palm read/fortune told.
12. Go to a blogging conference.
13. Re-learn how to sew and make a blanket from Em's old clothes. (maybe I'll just get a blanket done, I have no place to set up my sewing machine and I totally don't trust myself with such important items)
14. Own a car that's less than 5 years old.
15. Go for a weekend trip to Martha's Vineyard.
16. Adopt a family for Christmas.
17. Buy a bicycle. A regular old fashioned bicycle.
18. Go to Vegas for my 30th! (The 29th can count too right?! I just wanted to go!)
19. Start (and keep) a vegetable garden.
20. Spend a day getting pampered.
21. Learn to crochet or knit. (Why was this important to me?!)
22. Buy brand new furniture.
23. Have dinner out with my husband at Top of the Hub or go to Blue Man Group (he's never been!)
24. Wear a bikini to the beach... no cover up.
25. Bring Emmalee to see the Rockafeller Christmas Tree.
26. Do a boudoir photo shoot.
27. Go to a group fitness class.
28. Buy an original piece of art and frame it in our house.
29. Go on our first family vacation (must be out of state, can't be CT)
30. Make a list of 100 things that make me happy.
