  1. Juhli!
    I LOVE this list!!!! There are so many fun goals...

    The house list is important too...I think I may have to follow in all of your footsteps and do the same, especially the fun stuff!

  2. Hi Juhli and thanks for the shout out!

    I love your goals, especially Paris. Good luck. Next year is going to be great!

  3. Thanks to both of you! I've been playing with putting in pictures from Google images to make a goal list to print out since I don't have magazines to cut up. We'll see how that turns out.

  4. Looks like a good list! I posted my 12 for 12 too. Good luck on reaching your goals!

  5. I love your list! :) Great & fun goals!!!
