Bucket List: 30 before 30

So there are these 3 incredibly sweet, beautiful girls I knew back in college (wish I knew them better back then!)...Kylie, Lisa, and Megan are sisters, triplets actually (awesome right??). They have this awesome blog called Traveling Triplets. That's where I got the amazing recipe when I made coconut rice with stir fry, remember that? Well, their blog is just full of all sorts of goodness...for example, they made this fab bucket list they declared their 30 Before 30: 30 things they want to do before they turn 30. Awesome idea right?? Check out their list here. And I thought I'd follow their lead and make one of my own! Some are personal, some are paired with Adam, and some are with our family. It was fun creating the list, and I'm excited to work on it!

  4. Have a college roommate reunion getaway...to New York :)
