  1. Such a great list! Can't wait to watch as you cross these things off :)

  2. Thanks for reminding me how great these are! It's about high time I whip up mine!

  3. Ooh so much fun stuff here. Love the ones you've crossed off, and I would be especially excited to get to crossing off spa day, holiday meal hosting, and all travel items... Professional photos and being up to date on photo albums aren't quite as fun (sooo awkward in front of the camera, and albums are soooo much work), but they were on my list and I'm so glad for it. Such great things to have for memory's sake!

  4. I'm absolutely stealing this idea and putting it on my blog! Hope you don't mind. :P


Thanks SO much for taking the time to read and comment on my blog! I read each one and love to respond and chat with you! :)
