    Number 30 is a cinch! Looks like this gets the most attention … and I suggest many fellow bloggers wish to achieve this too 😀

    I too would like to learn how to shoot a gun. Good luck completing you list!!

  6. This is a great list! I’ve already turned 50, but that shouldn’t stop me from creating my own list for the next 50 years! Cheers & good luck to you accomplishing all that you set out to do!

    Great list! So many awesome running goals. I also love “get freshly pressed”. Might have to steal that one for mine! 😉

  8. This is a really great idea but I would find it really daunting! One thing that I have learnt from my children is to live in the now. I managed to stop myself hurrying my 3 year old up today when he wanted to pick every single dandelion on the way home. So I was hungry… (it was lunchtime and I had been for a run.) But I was so glad I had restrained as tonight they had all been cut down by a lawn mower. This time there would not have been a tomorrow! 🙂 Good luck with your ever increasing list!

      I have to admit one of my regrets comes from when my kids were smaller. I rushed them along too. I’m working really hard now to not push them to grow up to fast. Allowing for silly kid moments is not always fun or easy in the moment, but I have yet to regret it.

    Ooh, I love life lists! I’m currently working on my 30×30 but I’m already thinking of things for the next one, a 40×40 list. Good luck with yours 🙂
