40 x 40 and Construction Mess

So you may notice things are looking a little different around here….and not quite “together” yet. I started my design transformation but didn’t have time to complete it. Also, just this week I recently decided to change even more, so be on the look out for bigger better things soon. In the mean time, please don’t mind my mess!

I have taken interest lately in all of the 30 by 30 lists that people have posted. It got me thinking, there are a LOT of things that I would love to do…but just haven’t done or gotten around to. Sooo I figured, what better way to accomplish these things than to do a 40 by 40 list! I have 10 years (well 9 years and 10 months) to accomplish all 40 things on my list! I haven’t compiled the whole list yet, and it is sort of a work in progress, however, I have made it public to start holding myself accountable.

My twenties were all about finishing up college, getting myself into the real world on my own, figuring out who I was, trying to become financially stable (or at least be able to pay my bills and have some pretty things), and decide what I want in life. I went from being a college student, to a responsible adult, to a married woman. Now that I have those aspects of my life down, I want to enjoy living! I want to do some things that I have always wanted to do. I want to go to Disney World, I want to shop in New York City, I want to pick up some new hobbies, see new things, live my life and have fun doing it!

My 40 x 40 list will be public page on my blog at all times, and I will update it as I complete the list of things to do, and cross them off when I finally get to do them! Below is what I have so far:

40 things I want to accomplish by the time I turn 40:

1. Go to Disney World
2. Design my very own webpage
3. Visit a new state that I have never been to
4. Go to 5 concerts
5. Finish reading all of the Harry Potter series and watch all the movies
6. Get another tattoo
7.  Hit my goal weight
8. Start my own business (even if it is just on the side or an Etsy store)
9. Become a “runner” (or at least be able to run a mile)
10. Purchase a Kitchen Aid Mixer
11. Go to New York City
12. Learn a new hobby

I am so excited at even the thought of doing just a few of these things in the next ten years!!! I am going to try my hardest to accomplish them all. What are some things you would like to do?

    I like your blog header! Can’t wait to see what other design plan you have in store 🙂 That is a great list, I really like the theme of trying new things. Something I’ve been wanting to do is try a recipe from one of our cookbooks… I have a bunch that I’ve never made anything from. Same with pinterest, I’ve never made any of the recipes I’ve pinned there either. 🙂
