It has been a very long time since I have blogged anything but on the day after turning 28, I was reviewing my 30 before 30. It is amazing when you write goals down how you accomplish them. So here is the update of events on the 30 before 30.
4. Run a 5K
On Mother’s Day, I ran a 5K! Well, I walked up most of the hills (mainly because I am learning how much I run on my toes…dang ballerina in me!). But, I did a 5K and have another one scheduled for June (my cowokers got me signed up).
The first one was the Color Run. It was so much fun. I had a great group to do it with and it was a beautiful day for a run. I am proud of myself! Here are some pictures:
5. Celebrate Kendal’s 21st birthday
I went down to California and celebrated Kendal’s 21st birthday. On her birthday, her mom and I surprised her in her house, we went to dinner with her parents and boyfriend, and then her boyfriend threw her a surprise party. On the day after, Kendal and I went to Disneyland and had a great day. On that Sunday, we also went out to lunch with some of our “moms.” I had a blast seeing her and celebrating with her. I am so grateful for her and am AMAZED she is already 21 years old!
9. Read 15-20 books
I continue to read. Although to be honest, the progress has slowed down. I am not complaining… I have been having a great time and trying new things (see #19 below for an example). I love to read still and continue to read as much as I can. I am currently re-reading Big Stone Gap for a book club. I hopefully will get to reviewing more books.
19. Do something creative that I am proud of
This one kind of sprung up on me. I didn’t even realize I had done this until I re-read my list. I was invited to a Paint N Sip class by an SMC alumna. I have done three classes now and it is so fun! The premise is to do a painting class with some wine or drinks or whatnot. The painting process is broken down step by step. I am very proud that I was able to create a painting that looks like what it is intended!
