30 by 30

Well 2012 has arrived. I knew this year would come...the year I turn 30. (Yeah, you should be jealous!) I know it's just a number, but it has me thinking.

I'm going to be 30 in 221 days, no matter what, so why not meet that day with a pocket full of confidence? I don't want to do "Extreme Makeover: Kaycee Edition", but I do want to accomplish a few things.
Here goes....
I will update this post as I accomplish any of these "goals".

    1. Read the Book of Mormon (again). (8/23/12)
    2. Go down 2 sizes. (5/1/12 - Completed and then regressed back to original size. :( )
    3. Visit a friend in another state. (2/25/12- went to Arizona and visited my cousin friends April and Christy.)
    4. Create (and not touch) an emergency fund.

    15. Get a passport.
    16. Make dinner and bring lunch 3 times/week.
    17. Trace family tree back 2 more generations on Mom's side. (Completed 8/1/12 - Went back 1 more generation with the Mulleavys which opened another 4 generation. Woo hoo!)

    Come visit Beaumont, TX. Not really.

    What about a sleep goal? You'll need a lot of energy for all of these goals and that begins with sleep. 8 hours a night? 7? 6?

    Get some good sleep.

    Wow, you have some great goals. You are already a terrific person, but any one of those things would be good to achieve. Here's my people choice-"take a dance class or cooking class". That might be fun for a single gal!
