36 is the NEW 26?

11 Apr

Well I am another year older as of the 7th! I am just not sure when I got old. I know 36 is not old but with age there is more need to sleep. More need to recover. More need to watch what you eat! I am going to embrace my 36th year of living and not think about the number!!

For my birthday Dan bought me some Wicked Good Cupcakes. Straight from Boston!!

They were awesome!!! Don’t worry it took us a few days to get through them!

I had a great day at work. Dan and I met some friends out for dinner that night!

My cupcake headband I wear every year!!

Dinner at Montage! They make your leftovers into different shapes and animals in foil. Mike got a sword! The rest of us ate our whole meal! 😉

#1: Wow as of 2 Mondays ago. I started a new career. Bam checked that off. That was easy!

I was super sad when we ate our last jar of salsa. We do still have a jar of pickles left! 🙂

#26: Learn to stand up paddle board. Dan and I took a lesson. I went a few other times but really want to get into it this summer!

#32: Kayak with orcas in the San Juan Islands. We unknowingly did!! It was amazing! We had already seen the orcas the day before on a whale watching trip. So when we started our kayaking adventure we had no expectations that we would see them again!!

The new plan is to finish this bucket list before my 40th birthday so I can do a new bucket list April 2019!!

Have you marked anything off your bucket list lately? Or in the last year??
