This is my list of "things I want to do" in 2013, and I am going to try really hard to do all of
them. That way it will seem like I'm being really productive.... :) Some of these are silly (55, 
56, 62... :) and others are things I have really really wanted to do for a while now, and it would 
seem likely that I just might be able to accomplish them in the up coming year. I am so 
excited about this new year. The possibly are endless!! :)

What are you looking forward to most in this New Year?


  1. Do you not smile at yourself when you're doing your morning makeup? Hmm, I guess I don't in the morning either . . . but I frequently do really weird faces at myself in mirrors throughout the day, if I'm in a good mood :) I like your list! Much more productive than mine.

  2. I am totally going to do this on my blog!!! Awesome Idea!!!


I read and appreciate every comment. :)
