    22. “Learn to sew a button onto my pea coat.” Can’t believe you said that…This is what I need to do, TOO!!


    I so need to do this!! Look at how much you’ve crossed off already — wow! I’ve been meaning to make a scrapbook of 2011 (one of the best years of my life) and I need to just do it already. You’ve inspired me! Thank you!


    We have some common goals. I would also learn how to cook, have a free lance writing career, donate blood and to workout. I have planned to to such list too but my list keeps getting longer ever year. Hahaha! Thank you for following my blog too. I really appreciate it. Wishing you more happiness!
