30 before 30

Just over a month ago, I celebrated the big 2-8.  2 more years until the big 3-0. I don't find the idea of turning 30 intimidating.  A lot of my friends are currently hitting that milestone (Hubby's turn is in November), so it's made me think.  Of course I want my life all figured out YESTERDAY, but realistically I seem to have a good thing going.  That being said, there are certain things I would love to accomplish in the next few years (prior to offspring) and what better way to keep myself accountable than putting it in writing.  on the interwebs.  for all to see.  I'd better not disappoint. I will, of course, keep you posted
