2020 Birthday Bucket List

February 5, 2020

It’s my birthday and that means that it’s time for update to my last bucket list as well as my 2020 birthday bucket list! It’s hard to believe that it’s been a year since I created my last list! I like to think that I’m a pretty organized person and creating list gives me a sense of keeping things in order! I started creating these birthday list as a way to keep track of things that I want to do each year that are adventurous and fun! Although I feel like I checked off most of my items on my list during vacation last summer!

Here’s my bucket list from last year!

1. Spend a day at the spa

I think massages and spas go hand in hand! Brian and I had the most relaxing massages while in Aruba last summer! We listened to the ocean, waves and the wind while getting massages together! It was awesome!

2. Travel outside of the United States

Aruba! We finally took a trip out of the United States! And OMG! It’s not a day that goes by that we don’t think about Aruba! Sometimes I wonder if it’s because it was our first international trip or if it was just that amazing! I seriously think that it was just that amazing! The people! The beaches! The vibes! The food! Everything! We loved it so much!

3. Volunteer for a good cause

4. Plan a trip for our 5 year anniversary

Aruba was technically our honeymoon/anniversary trip! But we also spent our anniversary in Charleston, South Carolina with the kids!

5. Eat healthier

We spent a lot more time cooking our meals and thinking about what goes into our bodies last year! But I feel like this is one of those things that you never stop doing!

6. Dance in the rain

7. Go snorkeling

Snorkeling was so much fun!

8. Read a new book

Technically, I read a new book in 2019! I read Fit Men Cook book! But I’ll add this to my list for 2020 just in case that one doesn’t really count!

9. Go skydiving (I’m feeling adventurous)

10. Throw a party

I decided to keep it super simple for 2020! There are a lot of things that I want to accomplish this year, but I don’t want to overwhelm myself with a long list of things!
