40 by 40 {a list} - do you have a list of goals you're working towards?

Yesterday was a big birthday for me. I’ve entered my last year in my 30’s. **cringe!** My 40th birthday is in spitting distance. 🙁 So I decided to make a list of 40 things to accomplish this year. I plan to mark them off my list as I do them and may even write blog posts about many of them. So here they are…
1. Do something adventurous.
2. Memorize 10 bible verses.
3. Go 3 days without eating meat.
4. Ride a horse.
5. Finish making my list of recipes to make.
6. Complete a bible study with Rob. Not gonna happen 🙁
7. Do 100 jumping jacks at one time.
8. Clean out the 2 “junk” drawers in the house. I cleaned the entry way table drawer and the drawer under the microwave.
9. Donate some of my hair to here. Not going to happen.
10. Feed ducks.
11. Go 24 hours without getting on the computer.
12. Drink a mojito in Miami’s South Beach.
13. Go on a Girls only weekend.
14. Pay it forward.
15. Host a party.
16. Send a postcard while on vacation.
17. Spread my Dad’s ashes.
18. Drink 32 oz of water everyday for at least 1 month.
19. Do something you’ve never done before.
20. Go watch LaCrosse.
21. Organize the office.
22. Drink a margarita at Margaritaville in the Keys.
23. Make something pretty.
24. Get rid of clutter (7 bags of trash in 7 days).
25. Make a list of the 100 best experiences of my life or Write a list of 101 things I’ve already achieved in this lifetime.
26. Sleep under the stars.
27. Go on 4 Mom-Son dates with Drew.
28. Go on 4 Mom-Son dates with Alex.
29. Go on 8 dates with Rob. Lots of dates to Piccolo for live jazz and lots of lunch dates if those count.
30. Watch 5 movies, you’ve never seen off this list.
31. Cook a recipe by Julia Child’s.
32. Make/Keep a bullet journal. I made a bullet journal and used it for a little while, but I just always seem to not be able to stick with things like this for some reason.
33. Hand write a letter to myself to open in 10 years.
34. Lose 25 lbs.
35. Write a blog post with silly GIFs.
36. Run/walk a 5K.
37. Make a gratitude journal for the family.
38. Do mission work.
39. Write 5 letters and send through snail mail.
40. Read a personal Daily Devotional for an entire month (and keep it going after that.) I read Proverbs 31 every day for a good 2 months. I need to back into again. Great stuff!

Ok, so I have 3 left. What did I leave out? Remember I have 364 days to complete these!
