40 Before 40

This is something I have been working on for awhile now and thought I would share it with you all. (it adds a little bit of pressure to actually accomplish the things I want to do!! My list has several things from my life list plus some added items that I have really been wanting to do, but had no motivation. I made sure that each thing is completely do-able for me and gave myself a good chunk of time to get it done in!! I will be updating the list and re-posting as I complete things or make some really good progress! Please keep me accountable and ask how I am doing!!

  1. That's quite a list. I wish you the best of luck completing all of that. I have a way for you to cross off #10, #19 and #21. Come see me in NY and we can go donate blood and then get pedicures together! LOL
