The Before 30 Bucket List

So I have seen this idea on many blogs and I love it! 

I have decided to create a list of things that I want to do before I turn 30 on in February of 2013. 

I will continually be updating this list by crossing off things that I have accomplished and adding more that I want to complete, I think this is an awesome way to stay focused on doing some wonderful things before I turn thirty!
