Adventure Is Out There: 6 Months to Go {40×41}

Today is my 40.5 birthday and, while it’s not one I generally celebrate, I wanted to take the opportunity to give a little update on my Adventure is Out There {40×41} bucket list.  I spent my 39th birthday dreaming up a list of things I’d love to accomplish before the end of my 40th year.  The list is comprised of dreams, challenges, fears and silly fun.  Over the course of the last 18 months I’ve checked 23 things off the list.  (If you’re a numbers person  you will understand why that leaves my uneasy, ha!)

40X41

HIKED KENNESAW MOUNTAIN
FINISHED THE PEACHTREE ROAD RACE (2X)
SAW NUTCRACKER AT THE FOX
ADOPTED A PUPPY
WENT TO DISNEYLAND
DID IT ALL AT STONE MOUNTAIN (and even camped)
HOSTED A FANCY CHRISTMAS PARTY
GOT MY HAIR BLOWN OUT
TOOK AN EPIC BIRTHDAY TRIP TO HAWAII
SPENT CHRISTMAS EVE DOING RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS
READ AND WATCHED GONE WITH THE WIND
SAILED ON A DISNEY CRUISE WITH THE EXTENDED FAMILY
SAW THE SUN RISE AND SUN SET IN THE SAME DAY
ATTENDED AN ART EXHIBIT
RODE A SURREY BIKE WITH THE FAMILY
FINISHED THE GARAGE ORGANIZATION PROJECT
CELEBRATED HONEY’S 40TH BIRTHDAY
CAMPED OUT AT DISNEY
HAD A SPA DAY WITH BESTIES
TOOK FABULOUS FAMILY PORTRAITS
DID DATE NIGHT AT THE STARLIGHT DRIVE IN
EXPLORED THE BELTLINE
SHOT THE HOOCH

As far as the rest of the list, I really need Honey’s help on the house projects and he doesn’t have a lot of free time with a crazy work schedule (a flower garden, fence rails AND a coat closet all in 6 months… yikes!).  I have been working on my pancake mastery but need to get moving on the rest of my food items.  I am so excited and humbled to serve in Mass for the first time this Sunday and am trying to become a Sunday afternoon porch napper (why is that so hard?).  We are signed up for a half marathon in November but I somehow hurt my knee walking on the first day of school so haven’t even started to train for that.  I’ve got a few others in the works, but a ton that I haven’t even started.  It’s time to pick up the pace … literally and figuratively.

Regardless, it’s been one of the best 18 months of my life.  40 is pretty amazing.
