Checking Off the List

It's been awhile since I've worked on my 30 before 30 List (since the camping fiasco 2012) so I thought I'd remind you where I'm at now and what I recently checked off the list.

27. Get a Smartphone
28. Run in a race with Ryan (5K, 8K, 10K…whatever!)
29. Make my own greeting cards for every occasion
30. Throw/host an elaborate black-tie affair! (Perhaps for my 30th Birthday)

Making pretty good head way on this list, don't you think? My 28th birthday just passed so I've still got some time for some of these items {especially the more expensive items}. But can you take a guess on which one I crossed off most recently?

Yup, the red highlight probably gives you a good clue. ;) A few weeks back I got sick, out of no where, isn't that extremely inconsiderate of illnesses not to give you warning? Anywho, so I got sick and had to take off work. With the hubby out of the house and me on again/off again asleep I decided to rock some 80s movies! What was the movie of choice for this sick person? I'm not ashamed to say it, Lethal Weapon......ALL FOUR MOVIES.

Now I know not all of them were filmed in the 80s, but I pretty much consider them 80s type movies. I mean do you remember Mel Gibson's hair??

I had forgotten everything from those movies, of course it has been forever since I watched them, but it was pretty entertaining. Danny Glover and Mel Gibson really did have a great relationship on screen. Their banter, along with Joe Pesci and Rene Russo, cracked me up! And if that wasn't enough 80s for one day I also happened to catch this classic on TV after my nap....

I certainly think that day marks number 24 off my 30 before 30 list! What is your favorite 80s movie?
