24 Before 24

So a week ago I found myself on the blog The Duchess of Plumewood. I love her stuff! She does this Birthday Bucket List. For example: I will be 24 this year, so I would make a list of 24 things to do before I turn 24. And the lists increases for each year. I love the idea! I’ve gathered some inspiration from her and thought of things that fit my life. Here is what made the cut:

1.      Go hiking

2.      Write one handwritten letter a month

3.      Learn how use a sewing machine

4.      Take blog followers to over 50

5.      Make homemade ice cream

6.      Watch a play

7.      Start a diary

8.      Try a new food

9.      Do a cleanse

10.  Make a KIVA loan

11.  Read 24 books

12.  Become CPR Certified

13.  Write myself a letter to be opened in 10 years… and a letter to Santa

14.  Take my Mom to dinner

15.  Learn to drive a manual car

16.  Wake up before 6AM every day for 2 weeks

17.  Skydive for my birthday

18.  Take a Dance Class

19.  make dinner every night for a week with my crock-pot

20.  make 5 things off Pinterest

21.  get a new tattoo

22.  Mark 10 things off of my 2014 Family Bucket List

23.  Learn to make homemade biscuits

24.  Make a 25 before 25

Some of these things I am already working on..

like the reading part. I can’t wait to see if I can get them all completed by October!

Do you want to do this as well? Head on over to duchessofplumewood.blogspot.com/

  1. This is great! I’m so happy you have a list. Looks like it’s going to be a great year for you! You have so many fun ideas on here.
    3. I need to do this too. My grandma just gave me one and I haven’t practiced enough with my mom to know how to use it yet.
    13. This is really fun (and funny sometimes). I write one every year around New Year’s to open 5 years later. If you want to do an email, there’s a site called Future Me, but I like writing mine out (and I’m guessing you will probably do it too, since you wanted to write a handwritten letter in another list item).
    15. This is on my list too. Any luck so far?


    • Thank you for the positive feedback!
      As far as # 3. “Learn how use a sewing machine” – I am going to have to buy one! My grandmother still uses her for mending and hemming. How creative do you plan to get with you sewing experiences? I hope to start making outfits for my daughter that normally cost a ridiculous price for the same material. (:
      13. “Write myself a letter to be opened in 10 years… and a letter to Santa” – Yes I would rather write the letter by hand. That’s just one of my little quirks (: Sometimes I type out a letter to my dad (he doesn’t have email) but I enjoy writing them much better!
      15. “Learn to drive a manual car”… I attempted to learn to drive a straight shift when I was 15. My boyfriend at the time drove an old Ford Bronco and when I said I wanted to learn how, he offered to help. It was a horribly hilarious experience and I have not tried since. But I’m willing to give it another shot now that I’m a more experienced driver in general! lol How are you doing so far??
