So there have been a few updates  
8.  We went to Disneyland on our Honeymoon (in January / February of 2016) It was so incredible & i can only imagine it would be funner with small children ! 

9. Along with Disneyland, we visited South Lake Tahoe (Heavenly) and Salt Lake City (Park City & Canyons) to get our snow fix ! I absolutely loved both resorts & there was a terrain park within Heavenly that was the perfect space to practice jumps. Even though the conditions were a little sketchy on one of our days there, i still managed to fulfill my want of getting over 10cm off the ground. I can't guarantee i landed that particular jump though ! 

18. Another part of our Honeymoon involved watching the Lakers play against the Chicago Bulls & the Minnesota Tiberwolves whilst we were in LA. M is a MASSIVE Lakers fan, namely a Kobe fan. It was getting a bit touch and go right before we saw them, as to whether Kobe would play. But he did & i don't think i've ever seen M quick that excited before ! 

27. This is now off my list ! Not because i've fallen pregnant but because i've re-assessed when i think i'll be ready for it. Maybe it will make it's way back on but for right now it's not something i want to happen until after 30. 

You might have noticed how i left the last spot free ? I still haven't decided what i want there, i figured i'm only 28, so it's nice to have some wiggle room for anything i might want to add. I guess 27 is free now too hehehe   

Do you have a list like this ? I would LOVE to read something similar xx 


  1. It's great that you've ticked things off your 30 before 30 list, it gives you something to work towards. I bet Disneyland was amazing!


  2. Congrats dear !! you have some nice list going on here. Really enjoyed reading it :) Would you like to follow each other on Bloglovin and other social media :)

  3. Great post babe xx


  4. This was an interesting read! I hope you get to visit Europe! :]

  5. Love lists like these! I wrote one of these ages ago but I'm afraid to go back and look at it, haha! :P I'm pretty sure I wrote that I wanted to fall pregnant before 30 as well, but I very much doubt that is going to happen now either. Oh well, that's life isn't it? xx

    1. I'm pretty sure you may have been my original inspiration for this ! You're so right, the older i get the more i say 'oh well thats life' such a liberating thought xx

  6. Love this idea, I wouldn't know where to start (or I might just steal some of your great ideas!)

    1. You should totally do it ! If you're anything like me & like ticking things off lists, it does get kind of addictive hehe

  7. I don't have a list like this but yours definitely gave me a couple of ideas! I've been lucky enough to visit Europe a few times and I'd recommend going to everyone, plus the food in Europe is amazing! Some of my favourite places I visited were Italy, Prague and the Greek Islands :)
