30 Before 30

So as of today I am 27 years 6 months and 23 days old. Many of my friends either already have or are turning 30 this year. This made me think of things I would like to accomplish before I turn 30. Pair that with my obsession with making lists and I present to you "Jackie's 30 Before 30 List."

1) Travel to another country
2) Learn to sew
3) Design & sew myself a fabulous dress
4) Plant a garden
5) Learn to like running
6) Run a mini-marathon
7) By a fabulous piece of art by an up and coming local artist
8) Create my own piece of art
9) Visit New York
10) Visit LA
11) Go surfing
12) Spend a holiday with the needy
13) Learn Spanish (try to retain more than I did in high school)
14) Fly first class
15) Throw an awesome dinner party
16) Sing somewhere other than my car or in the shower (this would make my mom very happy)
17) Take a ballet class (I took 15 years of ballet growing up - hopefully I will be able to at least remember the basics and not fall on my butt)
18) Give being a vegetarian a try
19) Have some professional photos done (sorry - no nudie pics)
20) Volunteer with Habitat for Humanity
21) See a big name artist at a show in Vegas (a show with sequins would be a plus!)
22) Work on my photography skills
23) Go on a wine tasting tour in California
24) Start some sort of side venture/pet project where I am showcasing my creative talents
25) Go on an exciting far away excursion with my mom
26) Go to the Indy 500 with my dad
27) Go skydiving with my brother
28) Plan a big event/party for myself or someone else
29) Buy a forever classic amazing piece for my wardrobe that seems too expensive at the time but I will treasure forever
30) Continue this blog until my 30th birthday (at minimum)


  1. Jackie, please tell me you checked out the blog that belongs to the poster before me. :) Just wanted to say I dig your list... might just "borrow" your idea for my blog, since I cannot think of a single thing to write about. I'll give you some credit, of course. :) Hope all is well!!!
