30 Before 30: Extension

So, um, yeah.  That time flew by way too fast and the deadline for my 30 before 30 has passed (or is passing today as I turn 30).

Since many of the remaining goals dealt with us getting a house (or doing something at that house, or completing a project with items that are in storage which would not be unloaded until we moved into that house) I decided to give myself an extension until the end of the year.

4 more months to try and tackle the rest of these goals.  Here's hoping I get as close as I can!

  1. Happy birthday! And good luck - there's not too many things left! You can do it!

  2. You could get some flower seeds and plant them in a pot indoors!

    Happy Birthday!

  3. Happy Birthday! I think all of these sound completely doable (and fun) by the end of the year!

  4. Happy birthday! Looks like you've been having a lot of fun and getting a lot accomplished. :)
