Forty and FUN.

Maybe you remember me saying this here, but in August I turn 40! Isn’t that so fun? I will tell you that the last few years have been some of my very favorite as far as being secure in who I am….and, if the 40’s are going to be anything like that….then sign me up. I will be president of the 40s fan club!

One of my friends turns 50 this year, and she has a bucket list of things to do during her fiftieth year. I thought this was a FANTASTIC idea, so I’m making a bucket list of my own!

On my list, I am including a list of adventures for me to have until I turn Forty in August. I have six months to complete them all….some of them are small and, and some of them are BIG things. We are going to end my 30s with a bang, and I just can’t wait!


  • Try a new Hair Color
  • Learn Hand Lettering
  • Take a trip somewhere fun with Jackson
  • Make a day trip to the Tulip fields with Presley
  • Go in a Hot Air Balloon with Luke
  • Make a Big Change
  • Memorize a verse from the Bible twice a month
  • Grow a vegetable or plant from a seed because #blackthumb
  • Take a couples only trip to one of my bucket list spots with Rob
  • Do Yoga
  • Commit to a Mission Trip
  • Paint a room in the house
  • Work at Meals on Wheels
  • Pay it Forward
  • Test Drive a Jeep for FUN!
  • Start and Finish a TV series that I missed but have been wanting to watch.
  • Family Photo Shoot
  • Stay up late to see a Meteor Shower

I’ll be updating you guys as we check things off! 🙂 I need a cute hashtag for IG though.  If you think of one, leave it in the comments! Here’s to celebrating a big birthday in a fun way! Happy Thursday, friends!

  1. These all sound FABULOUS…except the hot air balloon ride. THAT scares the weebie geebies right out of me! Can’t wait to follow along your Bucket List journey!


  2. What a fun list. When I turned forty several years ago the Lord put in my heart to do forty acts of service for others. I have to admit that I can be pretty selfish at times and think my birthday is all about me. This birthday by far was my best birthday ever. No surprise I am an enneagram 2. Blessings!


  3. What an impressive list! Sounds like a lot of fun to plan and execute. How about the hashtag #beforenarciturns40… Enjoy each day…


  4. I just taught myself hand lettering over the past year and I love it! I started out with a 2 hour class I found on Dabble (I’m in Chicago so not sure if it’s in every city, but probably something similar) which was so helpful for the basic strokes – it would have been tough to figure out without a person showing me! Then I just did printable worksheets and YouTube and Instagram video tutorials. I love a good greeting card, but I haven’t bought one in a long time, and my friends and fam have loved my homemade notes!!


  5. The older you get,the better you get! Reach out if you need any gardening help/tips..we’ve had a veggie/fruit garden for years and it is the best hobby! SO rewarding to grow your own food! Have fun checking things off your list!


I love to hear from you! Leave a comment here! :) XO Narci
