The Dumb List

Turning 30 is a bid deal especially in the single world. I have been dreading the big 3-0 for a couple of years now. Since I'm well on my way, I decided last summer I needed something to take the dread out of 30 so... I created a list of 30 things to do before I turn 30. Some of the things on the list are things I have always wanted to do. Some are things I have never wanted to do, and some are things I never thought I would do. Here I am 3 months into 29 and moving right along on my list.

When Carrie started planning the St. George trip she talked about all the things we might do-hot tub, tennis, swimming, relax...and the boys might want to go golfing. The golfing part made me a little nervous, but it is on my dumb list. Carrie spent half of a gmail chat conversation convincing me no one cares, we make mistakes, this is a good group to try it with, don't hold back, stop wasting time being scared to try new things, etc. She is right. This is the whole reason I made the dumb list-to push me out of my comfort zone. Golf is definitely out of my comfort zone, but I did it. I wasn't good at all, but no one else really was either. I got a little frustrated. I felt a little stupid. I might have cried just a little bit (funny how feeling uncomfortable=emotional). I even had fun, and I might be convinced to go again...with the right crowd.

our 2 groups. we tried boys in a group and girls in a group for the first hole but quickly split up the boys and girls.
in the golf cart(fun part). roman and rocky were the only ones who kept score.

carrie has some good golfing shots, but my favorite was her driving the cart backwards all the way down a path.


  1. you can check something off. Nice work!

  2. Sometimes you really do suprise me with the things you do. I never thought you would go golfing. The one picture of you swinging actually looks like you are good:)

  3. I tried to hit a bucket of balls once. A very stressful situation. I gave up after a few hits. (I wanted to hit it like a hockey puck.)It's a lot more skilled fo a sport than some would think.

  4. Yippy for golfing!! I am so glad you tried it. I SUCK at golfing, but I LOVE manacured lawns. So I go when I can. Good for you!

  5. Aubs. I'm glad that you're accomplishing your list.
