10 things to do before I turn 35.

halfway-3Wow. Cue freak out! I am 34 today.  Thirty four….34… No matter how you look at, I am nudging closer to forty than I would like. But life goes on! 34 just sounds so nothing. So blah and boring. Its definitely a nothing number. 33 was cool cause you know -double digits and 35 sounds totally awesome, but 34? It isn’t doing it for me this year. My 30’s have been a blast so far, way better than my 20’s so if the past 4 years are anything to go by then my 34th year is going to be a corker! And this my friends, is my bucket list for the year.

10 things to do before I turn 35.

• Read That Sugar Book.

• Go to ProBlogger in August.

• I want to take my shiny new mountain bike onto a actual mountain and ride. Well, ok… lets be honest that probably won’t happen but if I get it out into the bush and scrub I will be happy.

• Start baking more and exploring alternative ingredients to sugar.

• More date nights with hubby.

• Visit one town I haven’t been too before – no matter how big or small.

• Save the remainder of the deposit for the house build.

• Learn to take better photos.

• Visit either the haunted house in Junee or the haunted goal in Beechworth.

• Have fun with the girls. Now that we are all finished having kids, I just want more fun with them. Nights out, silly nights getting drunk on wine, weekend away, boozy Sunday lunches… you know? Good ol’ girly fun. The type of fun you can only have with the girls.

Whats on your bucket list before your next birthday?

    Happy Birthday gorgeous! I read somewhere 33-34 is the best and freshest you’ll ever look. Not sure how that works when kids are sleep deprivation are in the mix but rock on with all that youth!!!! Haha! Yay to more girly nights!! My mates are still creating so will have to wait a little longer. I’ll be the wise old owl sipping wine and giggling! Enjoy you day xxx

    Happy Birthday!

    On my bucket list on my last birthday was to create a blog to remind myself, as well as others, no matter what their age, to live and enjoy a fabulous and fun life! Hence my blog Fabulous and Fun Life was born!

      Absolutley Sasha, although this year with both kids in care/school on a Friday I get 6 glorious kid free hours a week, but it isn’t long enough haha x

    Happy birthday lovely! Great thing to do writing a list!
    I loved 34 although it’s all a bit of a blur being in newborn madness.
    Enjoy the remainder of your ‘early 30’s’… From next year you’ll officially be ‘mid 30’s’.

    Happy Birthday! Love your list for the year and all really doable I think. There is only a few weeks til my next birthday so I’m not sure I can set any lofty goals for that one.
