25th Birthday Blog Bash Day 3: 30 Goals Before 30 [Amazon Giveaway]

I've never really been one to get into writing down a list of goals or something like 101 in 1001. However, being that I just turned 25 and it's hit me like a truck that I'll be 30 in just 5 years (oh boy!), I thought I would come up with thirty things I would ideally like to accomplish before I turn 30. Not necessarily things I need to get done, but something that I can look at and be like, "Yes, that's what I would like to do".

  1. I love your list! let's see, from Amazon I'd probably buy a gift of some sort!

  2. I am thinking I would buy cookware.

  3. You are coming to Nashville, for my 30th, next November (the 14 I think it is) NO EXCUSES be there!! Then you can knock Nashville and blate out in one fell swoop :)

  4. I have a whole wishlist of things I want to buy on Amazon :) Right now, I'm saving up to buy my husband a Keurig for his birthday in January. This would get me a lot closer to that goal!

  5. Maybe a humidifier since I broke mine today :( Or maybe something way more fun!

  6. I would buy a kindle.
