30 by 30 :: progress

So, a while back I came up with a list of 30 things I want to do before my 30th birthday.... And what better time to check the progress of my 30 by 30 list than the day before my 29th birthday?

I'd have to say, I think I'm moving along quite nicely. With exactly one year left, I'm feeling like we can make this happen folks....

Great job! And the Apple clinic totally counts.

I love this 30 by 30 thing. I wish I could copy it, but I only have 6 months so I don't know what I can do in that time. Good beers: mexican beers are good (dos xx, corona, etc.), heineken is a classic but has a skunky taste, I also love a good heffeweizen. I'd start with those...

I'm thinking the beer should be changed to wine. Then I could give suggestions.

ha! marti...you see wine, i have no problem finding a favorite... it's the beer that i'm struggling with. i have found a few that i enjoy, but nothing that i'm like, "man, i could really use a _(insert favorite beer here)_ right now." thinking about having a tasting session this weekend with some of liz's suggestions.

You go! I can't believe how much you have already accomplished. I know that it wasn't anonymously but you made my day with the giraffe plates! So I personally think that counts. I have a beer book from when I took that class in beers of the world. I'll try to bring it in and maybe my list of favs. Also I just think I thought of a fabulous birthday gift for you. :)

On the beer one, next time you are in Houston, there is a beer made in Conroe (I know!) by a brewery called Southern Star. The beer is called Bombshell Blonde, and it's delicious.
