**Updated 1/30/2018 to eliminate a few things I really feel isn't me anymore. This list was originally made in 2015 just after I saw my 30 before 30 come to an end and I'm just in a different place in my life. I mean, the daring girl that wanted to Attend something like Sturgis or Daytona Bike Week just isn't something I would add to the list today. That doesn't mean in a couple that won't interest me, I love the fact that this is now a list I can reflect on and change. I also completed the list. I only had 1-24 when I posted this almost three years ago, so yay me!!

Do you have a list like this?


  1. I really need to make a list. I tend to forget about long term lists though. Going to Hawaii is a good one. Bread in the crockpot is totally manageable.

  2. Uggggh, I don't want to make this list but I should, lol. I never did one for 30 x 30

  3. Oh girl seeing the eiffel tower is the perfect item on your list!! I have a few of these on my 30 x 30 list!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  4. I have a 30x30 list that I made this fall & I really should check on it to see how I'm doing!

  5. I can't do a 10 year out list, I let things get away from me in that time! Good for you! Fill this sucker up!

  6. Some good goals so far!! I plan to get published too!

  7. I have half a blank 40x40 list right now too, I like what you have so far!

  8. You can combine the cruise with the unplugging...most of the time you don't have cell or computer access during one anyway!

  9. Love your list. I think Bike Week is phenomanal fun.

  10. Awesome list girl! Totally unplugging on a trip is super refreshing which is why I love international vacays :-D

  11. Love this list! I feel like I would add "do something that scares you" to that list. I'm all about pushing my comfort zones haha. Unplugging has got to be the hardest and best thing for the soul. :)

  12. This is a great start to your list- sooo many fun things on there :) I hope you have a great time at Universal today!
