30 before 30...turns into 40 before 40.

30 before 30? Probably not going to happen since I am turning 30 in a few days. That doesn't mean however, that these goals can't be turned into a 35 before 35 or 40 before 40 though right? 

Wow. Typing "40 before 40" just gave me chest pains. Why am I so afraid of getting older? 40 is the new 30 right? So...30 is the new 20? I have heard that 30's are much better than your 20's. I guess we will find out. Am I too old to blog? You're never too old to blog right? Yep. Typing "40" made all those random thoughts run through my head at about 100 miles per hour. Yikes.

Okay, let's turn this into a "40 Before 40" list. Eek. I wonder if I can get my husband to make one too? Of course, I have 10 years to complete mine, he will have only 2 years. I have a weird comfort in that - ha. Love you bade. Okay, here we go:

  1. That is a big list! I can help you with the French braiding - it is actually really easy. What makes it harder is if you have thin, fine hair like I do and it is too slippery. This is a good tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7yDEqP6FsQs

    I like to lay off the side of my bed while doing it because your arms get really tired.

    1. Thanks!! I will try that!!! Such a good idea - that's my problem, my arms get tired cause it takes me repeated attempts to try and get it right!


I love comments!!! :)
