  1. This is a fantastic idea! Not sure what I'd put on mine though...

  2. Whew...you wore me out, but all things we need to know and do! http://queennmyownmind.blogspot.com/

  3. I thought I would have a hard time coming up with them too, but I actually had more than I needed

  4. This is an exhausting and ambitious list. I hope you do everything on it. You gave me some ideas for starting a list of my own. Thanks!

    I'd like to do #94 too.

  5. Your welcome, have fun making your list :)

  6. Holy sh*t. awesome set of goals. I have one piece of advice for #51. Buy gummy multi-vitamins. I never had the willpower to take my pill vitamins but the gummy's are easy cause they don't require water and they're yummy!

  7. Awesome, thanks I will definitely get some of those
