I wish I were as cool as you! :)
This is an amazing list. I truly hope that you get to all of them, well, except for number 8 because I don't think I could do that one...it would be more of a chunky dunk :P Thanks for being a great inspiration. I don't comment on your blog as much as I should, but know that I do think about you quite a bit. I can't wait for you to make it to Utah one day (add that to your bucket list...lol) Thanks for all you have and continue to do! Hugs...

Nice list.

Buy a gun. I had to laugh! Our political views are so different. As a conservative Republican you'd think that I'd be the one who would want a gun, But I'm dead set against having one in the house.
