A year ago now, I posted my 30 before 30 bucket list. Little did I know that I would find out in less than a week that I was pregnant! That changed some of my priorities. So today I give you the 30 before 30 list that I did complete before my 30th birthday!
**If you want to make a similar list, I would encourage you to check out the original post, as it has some printables for making your own 30 before 30 list!
My husband and I took a trip [...]
When I was building my 30 before 30 bucket list, I came across Robyn, who celebrated her 38th birthday by completing 38 random acts of kindness. I LOVED her idea and immediately knew I wanted to do the same.
So I will be spending the week of my 30th birthday completing 30 random acts of kindness. I personally can’t wait.
I would love it if you celebrated my birthday with me by doing just ONE act of kindness during the week of my birthday, September 25th and sharing it with [...]
I’m turning 30 this month!! AAhhhh!!!!! Crazy, right?
Remember my 30 before 30 bucket list?
Before my son was born I was pretty ambitious in what I wanted to accomplish the last month of my pregnancy and the two months following. Since I’m a first time mom, I didn’t know if my priorities would change after giving birth (which they did) and I didn’t know how much time I would have to devote to my bucket list (very little, if any).
For the months of May and June
Welcome Baby Boy!
Boy, were you a surprise! Ain Levi Pool (pronounced ‘long A’ and the word ‘in’) was born on Monday, June 24th. His names mean ‘Merciful’ and “Gift of God’. He certainly is a gift. But, he was a surprise as we were expecting a girl (that’s what the 18 week sonogram showed).
He was 7 lbs. 12 oz. and 21 inches long – same size as his Daddy when he was born! It was a LONG labor – 27 hours and 21 of those hours I was in active labor! [...]

So, Monday evening we decided to take a spontaneous trip to St. Louis all day Wednesday because my husband’s FAVORITE BAND EVER was going to be there (birthday gift from me). Then, we used our anniversary money to make this our anniversary trip for this year! And we only had 1 day to plan!
So, we were a little CRAZY. My husband worked both Tuesday and Thursday so we had 1 day in which to drive to St. Louis, enjoy it, and drive back. Since St. Louis is an almost 5 hour [...]
Hello! How are you? I hope you are doing well!! I have several things to share today – it’s kind of a random miscellaneous post.
All Things Fall
I think I’ve mentioned before than my sister Amy has a blog, The Happy Tulip. She’s even guest posted here before. Her blog mostly features recipes and DIY projects she has tried and used to improve her home (which is gorgeous, by the way).
Her latest post I LOVE, because I feel the same way – I’m so excited for fall this year! Amy shares four projects [...]

We started planning the food first. I was hosting this meeting and provided vegetable pasta salad. In addition we had a wonderful meal of fruit, bread, Beer cheese, hummus, and plenty of dessert!
Don’t those [...]
