7) Learn to paint 
8) Spend more time with my Grandma

12) Have a date night out with Kyle once a month
13) Create a space to create
14) Grow out my hair
15) have lunch/playdate with a friend twice a month
16) Stop using disposable grocery bags
17) Print out all the pictures being held hostage on my computer

19) Make photo albums of each of the boys
20) Buy an antique world globe (rememeber, I don't know where Alaska is?)

30 is exciting... it's like entering a whole new world of womanhood! I can't wait (I still got a year and half to go).

Alisa- yeah i'm thinking my list is more of a bucket list! haha!
and Jess, I'm hoping that I'll feel this new so called world of womanhood. Sometimes I still feel like a goofy 13 year old.

i will be 30 in a little over a month, and yes, i still feel like a child sometimes. it's scary to realize that i am now a "grown up", but that i still don't have my shit together yet, haha. i guess my *large* list will have to go til i'm 50 as well! :)

I keep telling myself "I'll be the person I want to be when I'm 50". I'm not sure if that's gonna happen. But at 29 I think you're pretty amazing Dena!
