40 by 40 - Mini Bucket List

I came across a blog post while surfing the other night and it has inspired me to create a "mini bucket list". I think it's such a neat idea and a great way to set goals/dreams for yourself. I got the idea from: Fat Bridesmaid 

This is a list of 40 things I would like to accomplish/do by the time I am 40 years old, which is fast approaching :) I will be 40 on May 29th, 2013 so I have about 2½ years. Some are health/fitness related but most as just general. They are in no particular order. And as I complete them, I will come back to this post and check them off! :)

    Hey... wonderful waterfalls = Michigan's Upper Peninsula! Take the Painted Rock Boat Tour while up there, and Tahquamenon Falls is Amazing! Check out this link...


    Good Luck with your 40x40 list... I'd have to change mine to 50x50 list... I'd have about 8.5 years to complete it!

    Michigan's UP is absolutely beautiful! After I couldn't even tell you how many of the waterfalls we hit while there in just two or three days... Not sure if you looked up the picture rock tours, but you should...it's amazing! The water was an emerald green, and the mineral deposits "Pictured rocks" on the shoreline is just breath taking. My husband (soon to be ex) had actually decided that we wanted to retire up there...but I guess that won't happen now... oh well. If you go, I guarantee you won't regret it!
