  1. Can't wait to see it! What a great idea!


  2. Why do you have to be such a tease?

  3. I love it! Can't wait to see your post.

    My friend and I are both about to be 30 and I just made her a card of 29 things you can live with out, how to declutter your lift before you turn 30. But I love your idea and might make that list now.

  4. Love your list Connie... can't wait to hear the stories that come out of it! LOL

  5. Great list! Love skiing...never get to do it anymore. I've been knitting the same baby blanket for almost 2 years. Kids sure change everything!

  6. I LOVE your list... lots of great things on it!
    I hope you get to fulfill each and every one of them -- you deserve it!!

  7. Love the list! Some of them will be so easy to do. Good luck with Oprah :)

  8. I am trying my own 40x40 as well - ah the pressure! I have 3 months left - how about you?

  9. You can do some of that stuff if you come visit me here in Up-UPstate NY. Swimming, fishing, visiting a vineyard -

    Oh...and if you find a SIMPLE make jam recipe - let me know. I would like to make some!

  10. Run/Walk Red Rocks? I need a t- shirt saying 'I survived the clinb back up Red Rocks after a concert.'

    Sad thing is that I just turned 40 this year and haven't done a lot of those things.

    Good luck!

  11. Yeah! I make a gingerbread house every year. I know nothing about stripper poles though....

  12. Lol. How awesome would it be if you did get on Oprah. Ok we need to start getting u prepped from now.

  13. What a great list! I can't wait to follow you this year as you accomplish your goals :)

  14. Ok, you me and #13 (my favorite number as well!) in November!!!

    Great list, can't wait to follow your journey.

  15. This is so cool. I am on the countdown to my 39th birthday (89 days). I started writing this year for similar reasons. I will look forward to checking back to see your progress.
    P.S. I found you via Sugarplum Creations.


I love you. You are my best friend! Your hair looks fantastic today!
