This Before That 2011

Who remembers this list? This one right here? Well… I had made my original list in June 2010.  Now… here we are… almost a year later! There were only 4 things I didn’t finish. Yay! So… hopefully with this year’s list I’ll finish everything! ;D

The idea is to create a list of items that you want to do this year. Do you want to join me? Please do! I’m hoping to get all this stuff done before June 2012. I recommend mixing in some easy/cheap things. Don’t stress yourself out! I’m making my list 29 items long. Because I turn 29 next February. If you’re making a list I’m going to open up a linky below for you to link it up! It will be open for a year! 😀
