28. Go on a Hot Air Balloon Ride
29. Save $50 for every item completed (so I  have $1152.92 in my savings bond, just $347.08 short of my $1500 goal, even though I won't have completed all 30 things. I'll take it!)
30. Throw myself a wicked 30th birthday bash complete with a dinosaur cake - DONE! All of my friends came to the pub and Jason made sure there was a dinosaur birthday cake :)

I gave myself until the end of my 30th year to finish these. #16 is an open goal. Not sure what to put in there yet...

I did a giant maze in Oz. It wasn't corn but it was something I've wanted to do since.. always. I love your goals. I just noticed the added page today. We have similiar interests :0)
