:: 35 before 35

The fact that I'm even writing this is a little surreal.
Uhhhh. 35 years old.
Are you serious.
I don't even want to think about this.
I'm feeling like I'm 25 years old and not at all like a 31 year old.
This year I turn 32,
so I thought it might be fun to do a list of things that I want to do before I turn 35.
{not in any particular order}

Here goes . . .

  1. visit a city that I've never been to before
  2. have my home featured in a magazine
  3. go to Hawaii
  4. have at least one more child {done 03.15.13}

  31. do the 30 for 30 remix
  32. buy new scriptures
  33. be in the audience of Ellen's 12 Days of Giveaways  or ANY episode
  34. sew a dress for myself
  35. convince myself that 35 is the new 25!
So, every time I complete something on my list, I'll let you know.

Do you have a list?
What's on it?


  1. Great list! I also have one I'm hoping to get done before I turn 30 (in two years, ugh). The most important one I scratched off in December was a trip to Ireland.

  2. great list! can't wait to follow along as you complete each one.

  3. Hey, if you get to be in the audience at Ellen's 12 Days of Giveaways, I will gladly accompany you... I'll even drive and pay for breakfast/lunch/dinner!
