30 before 30

My bucket list of things I want to accomplish before I'm 30. I saw this on my cousins blog a few years ago (SHOUT OUT to Heather Mann you are awesome! And I aspire to be as cool as you one day) and thought it was an awesome idea so I started my list. Took me a while to think of 30 things but I did it, even if I don't accomplish them all I think its good to have goals. I once heard that those who have goals/dreams throughout their life, no matter what kind, live longer, happier lives. They don't have to hit everyone, but just having them makes you happier. I believe it and it feels great to cross something off you list so this is mine, maybe you should make your own. (in no particular order)

#1. Go to another country (I'd even count Mexico or Canada; just to cross the border)
#2. Read the Book Of Mormon at least 7 times (2 down 5 to go)
#3. Make a wedding cake - finished! 2/12 for my beautiful friend Sarah Cluff. And it was delicious if I might add
#4. Finish School ( in something) as long as I get a degree I'll be happy
#5. Have at least 3 kids (#1 May 10, 2011 and #2 due Sept. 15!!!)
#6. Learn to play an instrument (have to play at least 2 songs)
#7. Plant a garden
#8. Run a Marathon (lets be honest that's not gonna happen) TRIATHLON! Finished the Dam Tri 7/14/12
#9. Learn how to change a tire on a car. ( Yup I have no idea how)
#10. Learn to cut hair
#11. Own a home
#12. Go to Hawaii 
#13. Learn to make something and sell it- I did it!! Sold a cute little bowtie onesies and now I also added suspenders. I sold all I made at a little craft fair and I didn't think any would sell. I was blown away. You never know what could happen if you don't TRY!! 7/14/13
Sorry its upside-down 
#14. Take voice/music lessons and sing in church again. Used to do it all the time, but my voice/confidence isn't what it used to be.
#15. Build up food Storage
#16. Go to a Country Concert! My sweet husband gave me a great Christmas present last year and we went to a Tim McGraw and Kenny Chesney Concert last August! So fun, but Tim's pants were a little too tight. I laughed. 8/24/12
#17. Have a SPA DAY! I want one so bad! Massage, Facial. Mani/Pedi, the works. 
#18. Read all the Standard Works (Book Of Mormon down and the rest to go).
#19. Finish the Wilton Cake Decorating Classes ( 3 out of 4or 5 classes).
#20. Ride an ELEPHANT! Wouldn't that be the coolest?
#21. Ride in first class. (preferably on an airplane headed to Europe. I hate flying so its the only way I can think that it would make travel better/bearable)
#22. Ride in a Hot Air Balloon 
#23. Grow out hair long enough to give to 'locks of love' (not sure if it will really happen cuz I like my hair blonde too much, and my hair is not as blonde as it once was in my youth) -they don't ake bleached hair :(
#24. Visit all 50 U.S. States (23/50- almost half way!)
#25. Learn to ride a unicycle
#26. Learn the Howdown Throwdown- Ya the Miley Cyrus dance :)
#27. Start a blog and keep it up for at least 6 months ( Started last month lets see if I can do it!!!)- I'm really bad at being consistent with anything.

#29. Take a dance class
