Dirty Thirty...

Go, go, go, go, go, go

Go shawty, it's your birthday
We gonna party like it's your birthday
We gon' sip Bacardi like it's your birthday
And you know we don't give a fuck, it's not your birthday
Birthday Selfie!
If you ask me... Thirty is lookin' pretty good thus far! ;-)
That's right ladies, it's the day we all haven't been waiting for... the Dirty Thirty!  What!?  What!?  I'm going to take the non-traditional approach and embrace this day, the day I turn Thirty...30...ThreeZero!  Thirty is going to be MY year to take back my life and continue to find myself again!  Find the pieces of me that have gotten lost along the journey of life; wedding, marriage/wife, bambino numero uno adn bambino numero dos.  Like alot of you I'm sure, whether you admit it or not, I have "lost" alot of what makes me-me in the past 10 years.  This is the time in most of our lives where we went from a single, college-loving, loose woman to a married mother.  That journey is huge and I feel that I haven't made myself a priority, especially in the last 5 years and that shit just ain't gonna happen anymore!
These pictures were all taken this week... damn, I look good (from the shoulders up) for Thirty!! 
So here is the deal, I'm going to list out 30 things, items, tasks, adventures, goals, targets - whatever you want to call them - that I want to accomplish in my 30th year here on this great place we call Earth!  Awesome right, and so not overdone...HP!  My items will be anything from fitness or costmetic improvements, foods I've never tried, places I want to go, people I want to see/meet, things I want to have the balls to wear in public - pretty much whatever! I'll keep track and update as each item is scheduled and completed!  Boo-ya!  Sounds amazeballs, right?!  I'll admit, I just thought of this concept this morning (like 10 minutes ago), so I might not list all 30 right here and now because I don't want them to be lame, ordinary and/or expected goals!

Ok, let's get to it!  In no particular order...
  1. Run (at least 3) 10K Races
  2. Run (at least 1) Half Marathon
  3. Get New Boobies
  4. Run (at least 5) 5K Races
  5. Get to my pre-baby weight (145 pounds)
  6. Rock a swim suit with no shame at the public swimming pool this summer
  7. Fit into my wedding dress
  8. Experience Mardi Gras with 2 of the most awesome chicks (Holly and Mel)
  9. Take a girls trip this summer
  10. Visit another country
  11. Get Norah's Birthdate tattoo (Foot)
  12. Get Eleanor Roosevelt quote tattoo (Ribs)
  13. Get E.E. Cummings quote tattoo (Top of Shoulder)
  14. Take the kids to Branson - SDC and White Water
  15. Go for a hot-air balloon ride
  16. Take Jack horseback riding
  17. Go to a concert!
  18. Family camping trip
  19. Get my photo wall done
  20. Hang curtains in the living area
Gosh, 30 things is alot!  Haha!  I'm 2/3rds of the way through my list!  Help me out, ladies!  Give me some goals to add to my list!

In other news I'm heading to the city tomorrow to meet up with Holly and Molly for a little birthday celebration!  Then we have our first 10K Sunday!  Wish us luck!
