It’s come to my attention … again and again and again … that there are a few things I need to keep up on continuously for the 30 Bucket List in order to actually accomplish everything I hoped in the time frame I gave myself.

YES … December is not the end of 30 for me so even though I feel like there is only 3 more months to get A LOT of things done, I really have 6 because March 21, 2015 is still a bit off. Maybe only having accomplished 12 out of 30 so far is doing pretty good. 

Maybe it’s time to check in and see what I’m at. Good news is … I’m really close to checking a few more off here in the month of October.

Let’s start with what’s been done 100%. I’ll get a few blog posts up on some of these goodies here soon as well, because let’s face it, I’m only 6 of 52 blog posts and time is flying.
