Happy 2017!

I partied the night away eating fondue in my pajamas and falling asleep on the couch by 10pm.  Woohoo!

And, I am ok with that!

If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you’d have seen that I’ve been working on a #40before40 bucket list.  That, along with all of my grey hair, might have you believing that 2017 will see me turn 40.  It won’t!

I’ve given myself 5 years to tick off these 40 items.  It’s time to have some fun ( even if I can’t manage to stay up past 10.)

Most of these items can be done right here in Saskatchewan and I look forward to sharing my experiences with all of you.

In no particular order:

39: Go on an overnight hike

38: Go cross country skiing

  1. Awesome list! I’m working on my list too…but I only gave myself 365 days! I didn’t get the idea until I was almost 39. Good luck to you and enjoy the adventure. I look forward to reading your progress😊
