These are great goals. I love that they are so easily attainable. :) You're lucky to have the book club with your friends. My friends don't have time to read. It's SO frustrating. Sigh.

I may have to make a list of my own! xoxo

This list is amazing! The only list I have is a travel list, and it is not short (but I love to travel though). I might have to make a list too. Thanks for sharing =)

CaSaundraLeigh said...

I love this list!! And being that you have 1001 days to get it done, you should be able to do good! :-)

Vegan Chick Pea said...

Cross #32 off the list. I'm vegan! And I wish we lived closer so that #68 can be done and we can have a yummy meal. I like your list!!

Bonnie said...

I don't think I could come up with this much stuff.
I'm pretty perfect the way I am.

This is an awesome list! So personal and yet, I find myself wanting some of these very same things, haha. I love #22 and #29.

And I love that you call it "pop," too. I get made fun of a lot for calling it that in the south!

Great list of goals girly!!! I definitely need to sit down and make one!

Great post! Do some reading on the Green Tea before you drink a lot of it. My doc told me that I should only have one cup a day! I was totally bummed!
