Inspired by Pastor Ryan and the movie The Bucket List...here is a list of 100 things that I want to accomplish in my lifetime (might not think of them all right now) and at least 10 that I want to accomplish in 2009. Wanna make a list with me?

You have some really good things on this list (minus the get 2 full sleeves... that's just creepy). :) Maybe when we are old and grey we can finish off this list together... since i know I won't get it all done anytime soon! :)
