“40 things I want to do before I’m 40!”
Life with Lane

I’ve talked about it quite a few times, I am going to be 40 years old on November 9th. I actually can’t believe I’m going to be 40 this year. I don’t feel like I got to this age fast but as you get older time does seem to go by faster. I have decided that I wanted to make a 40 before 40 list to accomplish before my birthday. I thought I would share it with you guys just in case you want to help me out 😉



I made sure that I didn’t put anything that’s too unrealistic on my lists because I wanted it to be things that I can actually do before November. I didn’t wanna be unrealistic or ridiculous. When you make goals for yourself, you put things that you know are realistic and that’s what I put on this list. Once you read it, let me know what you think. Please feel free to let me know if you can help me I always appreciate a helping hand, lol!

  1. Silly question, but is it actually possible to see Hall and Oats live without a time machine? I didn’t know that they existed outside of the 1980s… Unfortunately I think Covid is going to make some these hard to do by Nov 8.


    1. Hall and Oats are still alive and well and touring. They were due to have a concert in Tampa in September. I’m not sure if it’s been canceled or not. I haven’t gotten an update. If not I will be going. I’m sure I can do most of these things before November 8th. Probably just not the whale watching and taking my mother to the mountains. The big things on my list have already been done 😀😀

      1. So funny, but it is hard to tell what will be happening in September! I hope you get quite a few of them checked off, and if not, you will always have Paris. (Sorry, had to get a Casablanca misquote in there 😉 )
