35 Before 35 Update

At this point it is hard to do more than a couple on this list. But I marked off a big one this month!

1. Crochet something else besides blankets or scarves at least once a year (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020)

2. Do a photography challenge (Took pictures once a week George’s first year)

3. Visit 5 cities I have never been to before (8/5)

4. Tour at least one a winery, brewery, or distillery

5. Send at least 5 snail mail a month

6. Become a “professional” photographer

7. Run at least 10 races (any distance) (6/10)

8. Go camping with Tom

9. Pay for the car behind me in a drive through

10. See Tyrone Wells live as many times as possible

11. Tour Fort Defiance here in Clarksville

12. Water ski with my dad

13. Do a 5K with my mom

14. Take a swing dance class with Tom

15. Read at least one fun book a month and one professional development book every three months

16. Take a pottery or stained glass class

17. Do one new recipe each month

  • Green Beans, Chicken, and Potatoes One Pan Wonder-Guys. This needs to be in everyone’s recipe book. This is ridiculously easy and SOOOO YUMMY! The only downside is that it takes a while to bake, but It takes 5 minutes to set up so you can do other things. It just isn’t the best time wise after work.
  • Peanut Butter Cheerio Bar-Another ridiculously easy recipe. I did substitute the cheerios for a bran cheerio like cereal. I need more fiber in my diet and this is  much more delicious way than eating spinach all day. I also added dark chocolate chips. We are making these every week now.

18. See both a Clemson and UCM football game live

19. Find a place to volunteer on a regular basis

20. Go hiking

21. Ride in a hot air balloon

22. Go to at least 20 “new to me” restaurants. (37/20)

  • Pizza Haus-This is a pizza joint down the road from us. Greasy thin crust that layers on the toppings. So very good!

23. Stay at a bed and breakfast

24. Spend a day without electronics (phone, t.v. and computer)

25. Do something unique and new for my birthdays

26. Explore Nashville while we live here

27. Watch at least 10 movies that I have not seen before that won Best Picture at the Oscars and at least 20 documentaries (not necessarily Oscar winning) Movies (3/10); Documentaries (7/20)

28. Sew an item of clothing from scratch

29. Do a personal devotional/bible study on my own

30. Be a mascot for an event

  • I still need to write about this experience. I had a blast even thought I was drenched in my own sweat from the suit. Worth. Every. Second.


31. Go on our honeymoon (preferably somewhere tropical)

32. Host an annual NCAA Basketball Tournament Championship game party

33. Go on a mission trip

34. Be on a recreation volleyball team

35. Become a mom
