I turned 35 this month.
Aging never really bothered me before, the number itself is no big deal. My 30s have been good to me, actually.
Still, I have this nagging thought: More is out there. There’s more to see. More to do.
Traveling abroad with the family is a big dream of mine, but if I’m being practical, I know it’s not going to happen within the next 12 months. So I’ve decided to create my own adventure much closer to home.
The 35 Adventure
The 35 Adventure is a mix of things that are adventurous (for me, at least) and things that have sat on my to-do list for a while, often places close to home I’ve meant to visit for this blog.
What would your Adventure look like?
I’ve got one year to check these things off. Check back on the blog frequently to hear how some of these adventures went!

I’d like to check off 35 “adventures” after 365 days are over. Who knows, though. Could be more. What do you suggest be added to the list?

We did The Escape Room when we went to Oklahoma. So fun! The guys said that in like 6-8 weeks they would have a Halloween themed room here. ;) Let me know how it goes!

Got any tips about the whole thing?

Ahhh, I want to do all of these things! I have not created an adventure list, which is a great idea by the way, but I definitely have things I want to do. I went ziplining for the first time last weekend at the Mall of America. I have a story to tell about that. I think one thing to add to your list would be to do one of the Escape rooms like at Entrap Games.

Lisa, maybe you'll just have to come along with me on some of these. :) That's a good idea about the Entrap Games. Never did anything like that before!
