You go girl! Impressive list - I think I will take a nap now

Lisa Martens said...

Wow, very impressive list. I think you should get a long vacation when you finish. Somewhere you can bury your toes in the sand. In fact I think that should be number 51.

I'm a huge Gilmore Girls fan. I usually rewatch the series about once a year. :)

I don't know how you came up with such a lengthy list! I agree with Lisa...the beach should be on your list. Good luck! Can't wait to hear how you do with the accomplishments.

Let us know how many things you checked off the list at the end of the year. I'm such a procrastinator! Good luck!

Your list kinda reminds me of some things that I need to take good care of ASAP. Hope we can do all of our new year's target and resolutions.

Kelly Baum said...

Happy New Year! Your list has a lot of really good things on it, I have some of these on my list as well!

I love this list and am now inspired to do something like this myself! Love the concept and am interested to see if you accomplish all 50!
