30 Before 30: Progress Report

I am 3 months in to my 30 Before 30 list and I thought it was time for an update.

To see the full list: http://eventfulstudio.com/about-me/30-30/ Status as of 9/10/14




9. Bake my own sandwich bread. – I have successfully baked 2 loaves of sandwich bread.  I am not thrilled with the result, but I am going to work on it. I will blog about it once I am close to “mastering” it (wishful thinking)!

10. Master the art of the macaron. – I haven’t attempted the macaron yet, but I have started teaching myself to bake other French pastries! My profiteroles with lemon pastry cream are coming to the blog soon! Here is a sneak peak at my first attempt!

Ok…it was actually my second attempt.

13. Become comfortable hanging wall decor on my own (without my husband!). – Does hanging with washi tape count? I don’t think so. Ok still working on this.


18. Completely organize and declutter our home. – Who was I kidding?!  Our home is finally in a condition that is livable,  but the organization is definitely an ongoing process.

19. Complete at least 5 home projects currently on our list

  • Hang and organize our dining room credenza. – Check!
  • Attached hardware to our garage to add curb appeal. – Check!


23. Visit 30 restaurants that I’ve never been to in Phoenix. – 24 to go!

24. Start a collection. – My husband and I started a cross collection.  We try to get one in each place we go!

27. Complete 30 Random Acts of Kindness. – Two down! I feel these are things I should keep private and not brag about.

I am fairly happy with the progress I have made so far.  Many of the items on my list are more long term things I want to accomplish.  I had to give a status update to hold myself accountable!
