Things To Do Before I Die

On February 9th I drafted a list of "Things to do Before I Die". I Wanna Do It All Then I got caught up in the interview process and never got around to posting it. Since then I've had to remove two items since I have already accomplished them. "Read Pride & Prejudice" and "Join a Fan Club". My list is currently 96 items long. I reserve the right to add and remove as I see fit. I will try and keep you updated as I accomplish each goal.

If you read the "I Wanna Do It All" post, you'll note that my list is based off a list by Suzanne called 101 Things in the Next 1001 Days This makes a lot more attainable. Also Melissa just posted a link to 43 Things. A site which I surfed awhile back but never got around to blogging about. This reminded me that I needed to publish my list. 43 Things is a great place for new ideas.

So, without further ado, my list :)

Very cool list!
And I have done some of those - but you know that!
I am glad to see shop at the Mall of America is on your list. You have a standing invite to stay at my house! (Suppose I should tell dh that?)
