27. Dance lessons.
28. Bento.

I'm going to try extra-hard this year to cross each and every one of the list.  Wish me luck!  Do you do anything similar?  Leave me a link if you do - I love checking out other people's to-do lists (strange, I know).


  1. My friend is an awesome Ukelele player. We used to live together and she would play it out on our porch at night. It was so much fun. It's a really pretty sounding instrument. Also I did the photo an hour a day challenge once, and it's kind of funny to see your whole day laid out in photos, each hour. It is a good idea though. I like your list! Good luck!

  2. Good list! I have many of the same goal. Good luck!


  3. I love your list! Found myself going "ooh I want to do that too". I did a similar thing of 30 new things before turning 30. I basically set myself the challenge of doing 30 random things that I'd never done before in less than 30 days! I didn't have a list as such, just took each day as it came. It was challenging but loads of fun and gave me a gentle push to get out of certain routines. Here's a link to everything I got up to:

    Best of luck with your list! :-)

  4. Nice list... And great idea. Maybe I should make such a list as well -but my next birthday is within exactly a month, so it's probably a better idea to wait a little ;). xxx

  5. Great list. I did something similar at the start of the new year and blogged about it here:
    I've just been looking at it and I've only managed two so far...oops!
    Thanks for the comment. xx

  6. Good luck! I'd like to see the recipes you choose to cook. I live sort of close to you when I am in England (noticed you mentioned Sheffield) so I'd love to attend a craft fair you are selling at someday!

    1. Well when I enter (fingers crossed I'll be accepted) I'll keep you all posted on here. I'd love to meet you - thanks for stopping by the blog :)

  7. Book-binding can be so easy and so much fun! Give it a try, a simple notebook is a good start! And I have to do Bento Boxes again. Keeps me focused on eating better!

  8. This is a great idea, my birthday is coming up next month.
    I think I'll make a list of my own (:


Thank you for taking the time to comment - it makes my day!
