31 before I'm 40

Me age 6-ish
Me age 30 3/4 yrs

Today is my 31st birthday. I had a hard time with 30, but 31 doesn't seem like a big deal. So, today, for your reading pleasure, I present to you:


31 Things I Want to do Before I'm 40
(Yes- I realize some are more realistic than others...)


  1. Learn to surf.
  2. Take a family trip to Disneyland.
  3. Go on another cruise with Sei.
  4. Send Tristan and Alec on a mission for our church. (sniff sniff**)
  5. Learn to like my body.
  6. Learn to snowboard.
  7. Stay un-pregnant.
  8. Go wall/rock climbing.
  9. Go to Hawaii.
  10. Go back to Cozumel to get me a new bobbing head turtle.
  11. Build our own home. (After all the trips I want to take we won't be able to afford to build a home!!)
  12. Print out my blog into a journal.
  13. Finish college.
  14. Become fluent in ASL.
  15. Do a flip on the trampoline without putting my hands down.
  16. Learn to wakeboard- not just get up on a wakeboard.
  17. Get a new computer monitor. This one sucks.
  18. Get out of debt.
  19. Tell my kids "I love you" everyday.
  20. Tell Sei "I love you" everyday.
  21. Open a tanning salon.
  22. Witness Sei get a record deal for his beautiful music.
  23. Get Taj to sleep in his own bed.
  24. Keep Wormy alive.
  25. Get a tummy tuck that will get rid of most of my stretch marks and a b00b lift. (Yeah, right. Like that'll happen.)
  26. Go an entire week without quoting Spongebob Squarepants.
  27. Go on The Amazing Race. (I really think Sei and I could win!! And we'd be nice to each other the whole time.)
  28. Run a 5k in 25 minutes 26 1/2 minutes.
  29. Get on a workout schedule and keep it!!
  30. Have an awesome birthday this year... and every year after. :)

Y'all have a great day. I mean it! I'm saying that for purely selfish reasons. If y'all have a bad day it will ruin my birthday. So, have a great day!

I hope you get to do the Zoo keeper for a day thing soon!

Mel said...

Happy Birthday Tori!

What a great list! Gosh, I sure hope you get Taj to sleep in his own bed soon:)

I would love watching you and Sei on the Amazing Race.

Toni said...

Have a very Happy Birthday!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! Have a wonderful day! Love you!

Happy, happy, HAAAAPY birthday! I hope you have an amazing day!

Golly, a 26.5 minute 5k? You're so ambitious! I'm getting a 32 minute 5K and I don't know how I could get any faster! A bit of determination I reckon.

Your list is awesome! I can totally tell you're craving a vacation. And your tummy tuck idea is funny (read my post from last night).

Again, I hope you have a fabulous day!

Leslie said...

happy birthday! you look just the same!

Amanda said...

Happy Birthday!!!!! I hope you have a great day!!

30 was harder than I expected. Of course I was 8 months pregnant with Megan so I blame it on hormones.

I've always thought it would be a good idea to have lypo and then they could insert it back in to give me a b00b lift. That way it is all natural!

Robin said...

Happy Birthday! I wish I could take you out for a fabulous lunch!

Gretch said...

Tori, Have you heard of DAVE RAMSEY??? www.daveramsey.com

He is on conservative talk radio and has a great program to get out of debt!!
happy happy birthday.

So watcha doin' for fun today? Since I have laryngitis or something that is making it hard for me to talk loud (yeah for my kids- they can really play on the I can't hear ya thing)I could watch Taj and Livi while you go to lunch with another friend. I'd even go sit at the park with ya for a picnic with the kiddos.

Not exciting, but definitely out of the house.
