The 30 Things list is all a bunch of really big stuff.  Well, big to me.  Big enough that I haven’t been able to do those things yet, even when it just involves submitting some paperwork (like #26).  There are a lot of little adventures I’d like to have, too.

Dia de los Muertos Festival

Getting my face painted at the Dia de los Muertos festival in Mesa.

Local events  – While not a wonderland of culture, Phoenix does have some good stuff going on.  Because the weather is usually decent, especially in fall and spring, we have a LOT of festivals.  Food fests, culture fests, music fests, art fests!  Sure, some of them are lame, but in general I love eating food from a booth, listening to music, looking at crafts, and people watching.

New Orleans

Tim and I, hanging out in the French Quarter on our last trip to NOLA. (I swear the self-taken photo style won’t be too common on this blog.)

Short trips – Disneyland, Six Flags, the Grand Canyon, Portland, Seattle, Washington DC, Austin, Boston, New York, Maine – all places I plan to travel to in the next few years, as long weekend trips or to visit family/friends.  Not really list-worthy because I’d be doing these things anyway, but they’re still adventures!  And perhaps posting about them will help me focus on the memories and live in the moment a bit more.

Tim had a gourmet take on traditional Hawaiian foods when we went to Mama's Fish House on Maui.

Food – Oh, the food pictures you’ll see.  I’m a foodie, I eat out a lot, and I love to try new things – dining can be a grand adventure unto itself.  When I think about travel, it is always tied a little bit to food.  I’m excited to travel more in part because I’ll get to try the culinary specialties of each region – hopefully I’ll remember to take pictures before I chow down.

Sleepy Grif Dog

My favorite Instagram pic to date – me, with a sleepy Grif in my lap.

Social Sharing – I read a LOT of blogs and I use Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest (all under the username Corgisaurus), so I’ll be sharing the posts, tweets, pictures, and pins that I think are interesting or commentary worthy.  I’ve found a lot of great stuff through the links other bloggers share, which makes me want to do the same.

I might include some general lifestyle stuff or reviews, too.  I’m totally in awe of the bloggers who post regularly, especially when there’s nothing in particular going on.  And even though I should find the minutia of a stranger’s life boring, I almost never do.  Here’s to keeping it interesting!
