Living the List, month 2

Since it is close to January 18th, two months after my 39th birthday, and 10 months before 40, I thought that I would take a minute to look over my birthday list and see where things stand.  So far, off my birthday list of 39 things, I’ve crossed off:

Get a facial.  A new experience.  Now, I will try to be diligent about moisturizing.

Go 10 days sugarless.  If you know me, you know this is epic.  I don’t drink coffee so sugar is my cheap afternoon energy fix.  Except I didn’t want a cheap afternoon energy fix any more because I was fairly certain that afternoon fix was keeping me up way too late at night and creating this crazy cycle.  So, I went sugarless from January 2nd to the 12th (the 12th was a friend’s birthday so birthday desserts were had).  I am now able to go to bed earlier– TV off by 10 pm and lights out by 10:30 which makes 5:30 am not come so fast.  It’s been a good deal.  My plan now that I am past the 10 sugarless days is to just have sugar for special/ fun occasions.  We’ll see how I do.

Start the You are Special Plate tradition.  So sweet.  We introduced the plate on the anniversary of our adoption being approved and I look forward to using it for years to come.

Take my birthday off.

Make a personal vision board.   Make a professional vision board.

Get a hot stone massage.  I have now done this twice.  I obviously didn’t like it at all.

Do something from Pinterest.

I’ve also been working on my some of my multi-part items like write 39 thank you notes, read 20 fun books, take at least 20 yoga classes, take at least 20 Pilates classes.

By my February update, I am hoping to have completed hear live music, go to a musical or play (I would love it if it were one we could take Happy to see), and send 39 thank you notes.


Do you write a birthday or bucket list?  What’s on your list?  And what suggestions do you have for mine?  I am always tweaking this one to make sure my 40th year is filled with fun, challenging, just right things!
