Awesome list!! I kept thinking, "I want to do that! hey, I want to do that too!" so I may just have to do those things even though they're not on my list :)

Laurel said...

I like a lot of these things too! What fun. I should try something like this, only without the deadline? If I have a deadline, I'm sure to blow it, haha! :) Have fun!

I especially think you should do #76 at least 10 times before your deadline.... wink!
