Ack! I'm turning 37 in December, and I have so many things in life I'd like to do. So, with the help of some online friends, I've created a list of 40 Things To Do Before I Turn 40. I'll be updating this list periodically, hopefully crossing things off one by one. Care to join in? Feel free to snag the button above.

I really love this! Better than a "bucket list" because it's got that definite deadline. (More definite than "death" and hopefully much sooner too.) I may steal this....

Lucky for you Beth, you've got a few more years than I do before 40!

Some of these I've done, some of these I wouldn't do and some of these I couldn't do (not married and no kids so making hubby a delicous dinner or having a picnic with the hubby and kids). But overall, this is an excellent list! I wouldn't mind doing some of these things myself.
