35 Before 35

My 35 before 35 list is finally finished! Some I expect will be easy peasy. Others, unlikely. Creating this list was actually a bit of a soul-searching experience. Notice that "Polar bear plunge" made the list, but "sing karaoke" did not. I wonder what that says about me?

  1. Exercise regularly
  2. See a musical in New York
  3. Take a girls vacation
  4. Go fishing
  5. Learn to sew and make something I can use
  6. Host a party
  7. Use my passport
  8. Go see a movie at the theater—by myself
  9. Grow my own veggies
  10. Refinish a piece of furniture
  11. Finish the four work-in-progress scrapbooks
  12. Take a class for enjoyment
  13. Visit a fortune teller/palm reader/psychic
  14. Donate blood
  15. Get CPR certified
  16. Have a real Christmas tree
  17. Get a hot stone massage
  18. Go to the ballet
  19. Submit a scrapbook layout to a magazine
  20. Make a wedding photo album
  21. Take Eddie to the beach and focus on having fun, not being in a bathing suit
  22. Attend ISU homecoming or alumni weekend (maybe these are the same?)
  23. Bake a cake I am proud of
  24. Dye my hair blonde
  25. Sell something on Ebay
  26. Return to Bass Lake, my old summer home
  27. Maintain a blog
  28. Go unplugged for one week
  29. Polar bear plunge
  30. Go on a picnic
  31. Volunteer somewhere new
  32. Pay for someone else at a drive thru or checkout line
  33. Do something "green"
  34. Participate in Operation Beautiful (
  35. Learn to drive a stick shift

So, fingers crossed that I can get all of this done in the next four years. Anyone drive a stick shift?

Love it! I wish I had put "learn how to drive stick shift" on mine. You and I can go donate blood together.

Oh, and you need to take photos of #29.

Didn't we do #13 or did I just get my palm read? My memory is so bad!

I think that I am going to have to make a list myself.

I wish I hadn't put dye my hair blonde on the list. My hair is feeling very healthy, and I know that going blonde will ruin that. :o(
