Welcome to December

Happy Sunday!

Hard to believe it's December already.  It seems like 2010 is quickly coming to an end.  I can't believe that May 2011 will slowly be here & that I will be turning 40.  I'm not nervous about turning another year older or that I'm hitting some dreaded milestone marker in my life.  In fact, I'm finally learning to embrace my birthdays & celebrate another year.

So get interactive with this blog & start making suggestions on things I should be doing to celebrate turning 40. 

Here is what is on the list so far...

1 - full body massage
2 - take a hike
3 - frozen hot chocolate at Serendipity in NYC
4 - Gravity Hill in Bedford, Pa! You come, I'll drive!
5 - learn to speak Spanish
6 - read 'War & Peace'
7 - get a tattoo
8 - take Salsa lessons
9 - take a cooking class
10 - get set up on a blind date
11 - hostess a tea party
12 - ride a Harley
13 - buy 40 different pairs of socks
14 - get a make over
15 - get 40 people to join me for a picnic in a park
16 - go whale watching
17 - eat a papaya...I've never had one
18 - cook a Thanksgiving dinner
19 - sing karaoke w/some friends
20 - visit the gravesite of Billie Burke, Glenda from 'The Wizard of Oz' in Vallhalla, NY
21 - learn sign language
22 - paint my bedroom
23 - clean out the living room closet

So while I need another 17 things to make my 40, I'd like more options.  Get creative.  Think outside the box.  Find something for fun for me to do. 


  1. go to Niagara Falls

    Spend the day in Philadelphia

  2. go on a "spiritual Retreat" that would take you out of your comfort zone and challange you

  3. Good ideas Raul. I'm actually surprised. I figured you'd suggest something silly.

  4. Rodeo riding or bungy jumping???
