Dirty 30! Happy Birthday To Me…


Happy Birthday To Me…It’s official I have hit another milestone and made it to 30! My birthday falls on September 30th and so this year I decided to go all out because I was turning 30 on the 30th…and that will only happen once!

I spent the last year of my 20’s basically imobile due to an ankle injury. Nine scars and eight months of physical therapy later I was finally able to start living my life again.

To make up for lost time, I decided to tackle the 30 before 30! This is where I do 30 thing I have never done before I turn 30! Now, I will tell you this was not easy but it was a ton of fun. The adventure started in August when I graduated from Physical Theropy and could walk all on my own which is kind of important!

I wanted to do 30 NEW things before I turned 30! Here is my 30 before 30 list…

  1. Beach Trip With My Mema: for a week we played dominos and watched the Olympics on TV, walked on the beach and drank wine!
  2. I Left My Job: after three years and accepted a new position
  3. International Travel: I bought a plane ticket to Prague and planned a month long vacation with my little sister.
  4. I Ate For The First Time: Squid – I would have liked better if it was fired 🙂
  5. I Ate For The First Time: Clams – which I did not like…
  6. I Ate For The First Time: Duck Liver Pate – which I really didn’t like…

  23. I Ate: Tridlenik which is a Czech specialty
  24. I Went To: Budapest for the very first time
  25. I Went To: a Sparty in Budapest – if you haven’t gone you need to

  30. I Went To: Florence, Italy for my Birthday Day and starred at the “David’s” beautiful butt for half an hour and LOVED IT!!

I decided that 30 was going to be different. I will be mobile, I won’t be scared to try new things or step out of my comfort zone and I will continue to push myself further each day. I have found that the most interesting thing about me is my stories and places I have gone. Now, I am not a story teller but I have hella good stories since I clear my bucket list each year!

Try it…It can be stressful, scary, liberating, expensive (if you let it) and the best thing you have ever done!
