It's about 6 weeks past my birthday, but I've never been one to do things on time. It's the New Year that spurred my goalishness.

I thought:

wow!!
2010!
I'm going to turn 35!!
So just for fun I decided to do something I've seen around the web. I started out thinking I had all the room in the world and then around #10 I realized that half the page was taken up and I had 24 to go! So I squeezed them in:)
Here's the list if you can't read it.

1.run a race
2.practice yoga
3.climb a mountain

These are awesome goals. I believe that you can really do this, and most of them quite easily, since you are you. However, for the tough ones such as #21 and #33 and am totally there for moral support ;) I found myself wishing that I could come visit you and just accomplish #12 for you... is that against the rules? Xoxo. Maybe I won't forget your 35th birthday like i did your 34th...

What a great list! It promises to be a fabulous year for you; I look forward to hearing about your journey. :)

A Monet exhibit is touring right now, it was in SLC last year and I loved it. PS Get some boots from Sorel :)

Pretty Brittany,

I am so inspired by this post. I'm turning 35 this year too. I'm not super excited about it but I'm going to follow your example and make my list. I put it on my blog so I feel obligated to do it. I think your list idea will make this birthday more exciting. Thank you.
much love,
Kat
