About Me

My 30th birthday is today (October 22nd).  Wow I can’t believe it.  I never did a 30 by 30 bucket list, so last night I came up with my 31 by 31 bucket list.  I have always wanted to have a food blog of food I make and food I eat while out at restaurants.  So this is where I plan to start.

I also want to try 31 different foods throughout the year, as well as try a month (with 31 days) of being a vegetarian.

Taking a cooking class and perfecting my chocolate cupcake recipe is also on the list, both of which I hope to chronicle here in this blog.  This blog will also allow me to get some one my 31 minutes of writing in, although I will not writing here everyday, I hope to do so at least 1-2 times per week.

Below is my bucket list.  If any one has any suggestions on how to complete these, please leave me a comment.

Thanks & Happy Blogging!
