The List

I’ve had this sitting in my ‘drafts’ for a few days now. But we all know I’m not that patient.

Sorry, in advance, if this is a boring post for anyone else (and if so, just leave now and I’ll see you tomorrow for our regularly scheduled debauchery). However, I happen to be super stoked about the idea, the list, the challenge, etc and I wanted to share it all with you, my wonderful bloggy friends.

Love this List!

We have alot of the same stuff in "store" for 2009!

:) all positive stuff!


Wendy said...

That's a great idea! I want a list, I'm going to start thinking about making one. :)

insomniaclolita said...

Those are some good list, good luck on that :)

Jessica said...

Wow! I've been wanting to do this but wasn't sure how I wanted to do it. Good luck on achieving all those things!

Frankly, Scarlett said...

That is QUITE the list!!! Good luck, chica! I think its all great stuff!

Very fun! I'm going to try this out.

002. If you are goin to take a multivitamin, make sure you purchase it from a Natural Foods Health Store. Most multi-vitamins that you purchase at Walgreens or CVS are garbage. (I could share articles if you are interested - otherwise I will spare you.--just trust me) What I do, is drink a fresh organic fruit smoothie with soy milk instead of a multi-vitamin. I feel amazing.

011. I used to take Tae-Kwon-Do and wish I could find time in my schedule to do it again....

014. I LOVE that you will be recycling! it is so rewarding! i despise people that do not recycle. it's practically effortless

021. again, rewarding. feels so good when you walk in to the grocery store with re-usable bags. AND it's trendy.

038. I jhust did fondue for the first time not too long ago... it was ok. good experience.

039. awwwwww

048. DO IT. will change your life. I have a list of apps. you need when the time is right.

056. A good place to start is e-bay. you can find a lot of original artwork from starving artists at decent prices.

062. I heart gardens.

074. :::sighs:::

Princess Pointful said...

Phew... quite the list. Go you!! Best of luck!

Bella@That damn expat said...

I'd read it but I'm too lazy. I spotted the words "wine tasting" and "Italy". I like that goal.

Shannon said...

Awesome! We have a lot of things in common so we should definitely be list buddies and encourage each other!:)

Leah said...

WOW!! what a list...I should do the same thing. Looks like your going to be busy. ENJOY getting everything done...Ballroom dancing your going to love. (been doing that for 3 yrs)

Emily said...

e. wiggle - yea i saw it and you've got some great stuff on there too, like the cummer museum exhibits!! those are fun. you should definitely knock those off easily!

miss anne - thanks. i'm hoping that i got all the negative stuff outta the way last year and this year will be nothing but's hopin'.

wendy - DO IT!! it's so fun and inspiring!

insomniac lolita - thanks so much! :]

jessica - thanks, you should definitely try it. takes a little time to sit down and really think what you wanna accomplish but i think it will be worth it in the end.

scarlett - thank you so much. i know some of them are a bit lofty but considering that i have close to 3 years to do it all, i don't see why i shouldn't try to do what i've always wanted to do, ya know?

texas belle - thank ya! :]

book worm - do it and let me know when you post it so i can check it out!

bird - omg. you are seriously the greatest. i would love if you could share some of those articles on vitamins. i don't pretend to really know much about which ones are quality and which ones are shit. i'd really love your help. and the same with the iphone apps. i will definitely hit you up for some suggestions in that arena as soon i get one. and i'm excited to start recycling again too. i feel like such a slob not doing it.

princess pointful - thank ya, ma'am!

bella - haha i do too.

shannon - i know right!! i must admit...i got a couple ideas off of your list because they were just so great. what can i say? great minds think alike.

leah - you should! what kind of ballroom dancing do you do???

PoisonIvy068 said...

yay you got your list up...i might have to take some of yours when I start a new list...right now i'm just trying to knock the rest of mine out.

Bird* said...

i definitely recommed you read the book: SKINNY BITCH.

trust me. you said i'm the best so trust me.

Ashley said...
