40 things to do before I'm 40

I don't have a lot of time left so it's going to be a fairly easy list.  In no particular order:

1.  See the Mural by Jackson Pollock
2. Go to brunch with my boys
3. Finish my granny square quilt (which means I need to start it)
4. Have a picnic in the Sculpture Garden downtown
5. Have friends over for a BBQ
6. Plant my garden
7. Make Stawberry Rhubarb Jam
8. Go to the Berkshire Hathaway Annual Meeting
9. Make homemade dim sum (or at least the sticky rice) -- yummy
10.  Order fabric online - who am I kidding this is done regularly anyways
11. Eat lunch at work with friends (not at my desk)
12.  Go on a date night with my hubby
13.  Eat good cheese 
14.  Get a pedicure
15.  Brew a batch of beer
16.  Go to a local brewery with friends
17.  Have a girls night out  (possibly combined with #14)
18.  Sew a house block from the Fat Quarterly issue
19.  Use my Flea Market Fancy
20.  Donate a baby quilt to charity
21.  Read Huck Finn with my boys
22.  Go to an Iowa Cubs game
23.  Visit my baby sister in Minneapolis (just after my birthday but it'll be fun)
24.  Join the YMCA
25.  Ride our bikes to lunch
26.  See my Mom (she's coming home from Arizona soon, yeah!!!)
27.  Take a 3 day weekend from work (please pray the weather stays nice and it's a possiblity)
28.  Drink champagne
29.  Make pancakes and homemade bacon for breakfast for the boys
30.  Bake cookies with the boys
31.  Fondue
32.  Use chocolate mint in a recipe
33.  Volunteer for the Salvation Army
34.  Give Blood!!!
35.  Go to the mall (I'm not really a mall shopper so I have to be in the right mood)
36.  Sew a Wiksten tank
37.  Eat a Dutch Letter
38.  Go an entire day without the internet
39.  Eat all local foods for 1 day
40.  Go to La Mie for breakfast

Ok, so that's a LOT to do in the short amount of time I have remaining in my 30's but I think it's doable.

I will have a giveaway on my blog for my birthday to celebrate.

Have a great weekend!
