Almost 30!!

In 2 weeks from today I turn the B-I-G 3-0!!! In the past few weeks I have had quite a few confidence boosters at work that are making it not so bad to be turning 30. I've been told twice that I dress like a teenager. I was mistaken for a student twice in the hallways. And then the other day a cafeteria worker asked me if I was supposed to have my cell phone out at school becasue he thought I was a senior. I'm sure when I'm 60 I'll enjoy looking 12 years younger than I am :)

About 5 years back a created a list of 30 things that I wanted to do before I turned 30. After awhile I realized that completing my list in 5 short years woudl require me to be a multi-millionaire, so I changed it to a Bucket List. I chip away at about 1 item per year...looks like I'll be working on it until I'm 60!!
