Epic Fail….

So about a year ago today I wrote out my “30 Before 30” list and then go figure I closed the notebook and didn’t open it again until a few days ago. And I completely failed, sadly it looks like I only accidentally completed a few! But because we are all friends here I thought I would share the list with you and we can laugh together! Don’t judge because some are silly (crossed out means I did it)…….

Nicole’s 30 Before 30 Failure

3. Become debt free
4. Become President Elect of JH
5. Volunteer over 24 hours (I am 4 short)
6. Make Scentsy Director 6 months in a row
7. Get a new house
8. Loose 10-15 pounds
9. Save over $5,000 of my Scentsy money (well last year was Matt’s 30th and it is hard to save)
10. Continue with Yoga
11. Take more cooking classes
12. Partake in some more Ghost Hunting (I did one last Fall)

24. Make homemade pasta and bread (Does homemade butter count?)
25. Work on my scrapbooks
26. Plan more for our future
27. Do a Murder Mystery in Guthrie (YES! This is not a joke and I don’t ever remember writing this but how funny that this is my 30th Birthday from Matt?)
28. Be a good Scentsy Director (eh, debate-able)
29. Have a good Scentsy Holiday Season
30. Spend more time with Matt ( we try but with his job that is hard)

SO there we have it friends 9 out of 30 and I only have today to make the rest happen! HAHA! Do you have a list like this? I mean this isn’t by any means a bucket list because mine would be a lot more grand than this ….but do you have a fun to do list? And did you actually complete it?

    I am so glad you blogged about this! I think 9 out of 30 is pretty good considering just how busy you were this last year.I don't have a list like this one, but I need one. You know how I love lists.

    Maybe I should do a 40 before 40 list…that would give me almost 2 1/2 years to get it done. Hmmm…something to consider.

    You did a pretty great job considering it was shut away in a drawer for the better part of the year!I'm a few days behind in updating my 23 before 23 – now that there are only 4 months to go I'm wishing I would have busted my butt working on it earlier in the year!

    i never even thought about doing a list like that, it probably feel overwhelming going over the list and didnt accomplish your goal! ;( BUT that just means that you have something to plan on in the future!
