I've done 41 out of the 99 things! I think that I have a great start on life! Or I like to think so anyway! 

If you decide to do this too, leave a link in the comment section and I will check yours out too!



  1. I want to go to Disney World as an adult!
    You have done a lot of cool things. What animals do you prepare and cook in the fall?

  2. Teach me how to garden! I need to do this list!

  3. I love this! I think you are a tad more adventurous than me. Some of them I'd be proud to have not done (like breaking a bone, been involved in a law suit, been fired...well, sorry about that one but I am sure it wasn't a great work experience anyway). You have done some cool stuff and made a great start in life. I am with you on hoping to travel more in my future. *Sigh*

  4. This is SO cool! I'm gonna have to jump on the bandwagon too :)

  5. This was so much fun to read. Thank you : )
