 I didn't do this this past Easter (maybe because I'm not five) but I wanted to
22- Get dressed up and go to something fancy
Sometimes it's nice to get extra dressed up

It's on my bucket list to see all of them one day.. might as well start with five I haven't seen

2) The Godfather Part II
* 25- This One's for Good Luck - Document Memories
I want to take more pictures and save them - print them out - make a photo album/scrapbook/frame them

There you have it! Looks like it's going to be a great year :)

Do any of you have lists like this? I'd love to see!! Leave a link!!


  1. This is a fantastic list! I could go on and on about book recommendations, so if you want a big list, let me know!

    I'm hoping to join in on the blogger meet-up! We just need to figure out a good date :)

    Here's my 23 in 23 list:

  2. I love your 24th! I always want to watch all the movies that are nominated :-)

  3. Amen on the Memphis blogger meetup! Let's make it happen!

  4. Read I've Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella. She's the author of the Shopaholic series. It was seriously one of the cutest and funniest books I've ever read.

  5. Yay for a Memphis bloggers meet up! I have been so jealous of these other bloggers posting about theirs in Atlanta, Chicago, etc.

  6. You'll definitely have a busy year! You already have pretty long hair, compared to me! But I'm with you, I've always wanted very long hair, but I've never had the patience to grow it out.

  7. you have a long list :)
    your blog is great!


  8. Youre a flyers fan, too!? Sold! I am your newest follower! Glad to follow a local blogger, I am from the Philly suburbs!
    Nice to meet ya!!

  9. We should do a random act of kindness link-up and just go ahead and take care of number nine and ten! :) I can't get it off my mind lately that I need to do some nice things for random people. Never done anything like that. I love this whole list because it's things that are actually do-able! Totally keep this up every year! As far as a book, the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris is addicting if you like True Blood. I recently read the Rock Chick series by Kristen Ashley, those are good, simple, quick reads. I've hear the Divergent series by Veronica Roth is good. Emily Giffin is one of my absolute favorite authors too. All her books are wonderful!


I appreciate each and every comment!! I love hearing from my readers :)
