30 things check in

 In December of 2010, I turned 30! When turning 30, I kept getting asked, "Did you accomplish everything you wanted to accomplish before you turned 30?" The answer was I never really made a list. So this January I made a list, and I have been working on it throughout the last 6 month.. I thought it was only fair to check in halfway thru the year to see where I am..
  1. Try 30 new restaurants.  I have tried a few but nothing to write home about.. any suggestions send my way..
  2. Read 30 books I haven't read, I have the list in my planner at work, I will do a post on this soon. Any suggestions send my way
  3.  Take my blog to the next level. (I have yet to come to a conclusion of what exactly this means, but I would love to gain followers, streamline the look of my blog, and potential even gain sponsors) One this is for sure I would like to have at least 30 giveaways (if you are interested please contact me) I did one giveaway, and have a 2nd planned! still tons to do here
  4. Make weekly Date night a part of our routine..  define date night? we still need to get better at this..
  5. Send 365 days of correspondence (you know I love an excuse to buy new stationary) I am doing well, so far I have send over 155 pieces of mail, from thank you notes, to sympathy cards, thinking of you cards, birthday cards, etc.. I am loving sending mail, and have seen that I am starting to receive more as well! I have also continued to make a ton of my own stationary!
  6. Purge and donate old clothes from closets at least four times (once each season) and encourage C to do so at least twice One big purge complete. We filled C's trunk with clothes & were able to clean out an entire dresser. Next up the guest bed room closet that houses my coats, & winter clothes..
  7. Take a cooking class
  8. Write 3 letters to a company when I receive great service or I like their product I wrote Pureology a letter, and also wrote a letter to Ralph, the amazing car salesman that was respectful, knowledgeable, and polite when C and I were looking at new cars. He actually called and thanked me for the note, as his boss, has showed it to the owner, who had then recognized Ralph. (so glad he received recognition)
