Some of the goals on the list  are a piece of cake, some are a bit more complicated and yet other ones are  more ambitious. I want you to know that all the things on the list that involve money I plan to finance myself with the earning of my etsy shops.  I think my goals are very much attainable or easy to be accomplished.  Nothing like visiting Africa or jumping off a plane...

  1. LOVE this list. Whale watching would be awesome. You have inspired me to do something similar now!!

  2. You can do it Claudia! There is nothing life threatening on the list like jumping out of a plane. LOL. I love the feed a homeless person idea. How rewarding would that feel? I wish I could stay awake after midnight for a movie marathon! That may be the most difficult here!

  3. I like you list. They seem to be things you will really enjoy. I hope you can cross them off well before your 45th party.

  4. You can do this! what a fantastic list that will be so much fun to work your way through!
