35 by 35 (hopefully before 36)

Now I am knocking on 35 in just 3 months.  There is still some hope.  Some of these things I am still hoping to make good on.  Ha.  There is some interesting commentary below.  It is amazing how my thought process was when I created this list and how I see it now.  There are some not gonna happen things below that I will exchange for something else and there is some things that I hope will happen before I turn 36.

35 BY 35
1.       Get a new passport – I plan on doing this as soon as possible.  I have some big plans and it is necessary to have. In the process

2.       Hookah Lounge
3.       Step Class (ole school Chicago stepping) maybe a Pole Class instead

5.       Go to a Philadelphia Eagles game
6.       Host a wine tasting event
7.       Go on a cruise – stamps on my passport uhm…. Im not sure about this one anymore after all those boats were having all those issues but I am thinking that I can still make this happen while 35 – we shall see
8.       Vacation with my girls – a real girlfriend getawaywell… technically this happened last year  (Vegas) but all my girls didn’t make it – DO OVER TRIP
