Sunday Update: 30 before 30

1. Vegas with my hubby!: planned for 12/17-12/20!
2. Finish another 1/2 Marathon: Holiday Half: 12/11 Yikes! My training is way off. I need to get my butt moving!
3. Sew something that I am not embarrassed of: This should help with that
4. Reupholster something: My office chair
5. Create a gallery wall
6. Frame & display wedding pictures
7. Lose some weight. (I hesitate to put a number on this. I want to be healthy and feel better about myself, and it has to be a realistic number. I'm thinking 15-20 lbs??): I met with my trainer, but I haven't done much else, including step on the scale. We'll see how this one ends up.
8. Go vegan for a week: Here is the start of the journey. I'm working on this one this week.
9. Cook a new recipe once a week: I've been pretty good at this one, however last week I kind of didn't do it. Bad me. But my vegan week will definetly make up for it.
10. Let people know about this little blog and get some followers: I am up to 7 official followers now, but I do know of other people who check up on this page frequently. Joining link ups and Blog parties have really upped my readership, and they just are fun to do!
11. Continue blogging 4-7 posts a week: Again, I have been doing pretty good at this.
12. Clean out the spare room (formally wedding room, now disaster room): Done! I have also been slowly transforming it into a sewing/crafting room. Another weird fact, one of the google search terms that someone used to find this blog was "how to clean out a spare room"
13. Paint the hall and bedroom
14. Get a make-over and buy some of those products
15. Send Christmas cards: I ordered some from Shutterfly! I can't wait to get them and mail them out!
16. No fast food for a month (Does Subway count? What about Dutch Bros/Starbucks??I will have to decide...): October was fast food/coffee free!
17. Take a necklace I inherited from my gramma in to have some links added
18. Do something from my pinterest boards: Oh lordy, done and done! And done again! (and those are just the one's I've posted!)
19. Get a massage- Why haven't I done this?
20. Do a version of Stephanie O'Dea's Daily 7- I have no excuse. Well I do, but you know what they say about excuses and buttholes: everyone has one and they all stink :) I even won her Totally Together book from a blog giveaway and I still haven't started this in our house.
21. Meal plan for three weeks straight and follow the plan!: I did this in October, and it worked well. The Mister isn't really too gung-ho about meal planning, so it does get difficult to do, but I love it.
22. Go see a movie by myself
23. Have my eyes checked.
24. Get a new work ID (with my married name)
25. Take a cooking class
26. Send birthday cards in the mail, even to people I see regularly: I got one sent to my niece, but then I missed two others. Oops. I have three birthdays coming up this month, and more in December.
27. Stay a week ahead at work: eh. Mostly so far.
28. Floss: eh. Pretty frequently.
29. Put 10% in savings from each paycheck: Yup. I've gotten paid twice since writing this list, and I've done it both times. One more month, then I can cross it off the list.
30. Roast a whole chicken

So I stopped by from the DIY blog party and I love you project, but I love your 30 list even more! I just hit that mark on sunday and I really wish I had made an official list like this! Well done, you!
Good luck with your list! Can't wait to see your progress!
