  1. Love your list 🙂 I’m still working on mine, although I’m inching closer and closer to the finish line. Going to be busy for the next few months… yikes! I only remembered to start hashtagging my adventures when I saw this post… fail. Wish I could join you for #1, #3, #14, #15, #20, and I am *dying* to see you do #31! That will involve a post all it’s own 😉
