And let the games begin…

I finally finished my 31 While 31 list and I’m ready to share! Hopefully I’ll be able to cross each and every one of these off the list before February 13, 2012. *Insert golf clap from the peanut gallery*

Over the course the course of the year I will also be participating in some monthly challenges/goals that will help accomplish a few of these on my list.

Check back for my progress!

6.  Go on a camping trip

28. Get a bike and ride the 24-mile path along Charles River
29. Send birthday cards to my far away friends.
30. De-clutter. Get rid of at least 100 items!
31. Go to see a play

For each task I accomplish $20 will go into  a little jar to be spent on…well, I haven’t figured that out yet! Fun little savings tool that I like to do. :)

Does anyone have a 101 in 1001 list or something similar? I’m obsessed with reading people’s lists. Dorry has a 30 Before 30 list and that is where I got the idea for no alcohol for 1 month! Leave a link in the comments area if you have one I can stalk read!

What a great idea! I did a goals list for 2011 (I don’t like the word “resolutions”) but I think I only had 10 or 12 things on it!! A great way to motivate and an awesome idea to save a little money for a rainy day.

I’m with you on resolutions. I can never stick to them! Little goals are always fun though.

Wahooo! I love your list. The no alcohol for 1 month is a great one. I love getting rid of 100 things and identifying 100 things that make you happy!

Love your list! Can I take the cooking class with you? I’ve always wanted to do that!

You have actually inspired me to write a “30 things while in my 30s” list. I’ve been thinking about it for awhile but I need to write it down.

Yes! A cooking class together would be great. I can’t wait to see what you come up with on your list.

That’s so much fun! I especially like 9 and 21…creativity is key to joy! I might steal those two ideas…how much fun would it be to make a homemade alphabet book for my future children!

The only time I went 30 days without beer was both times I was pregnant. So, so far I have done about 17 months with Morgan and 19 months with Carlee that is enough for a lifetime isn’t it? LOL I like the rest of your list. I’ll have to make one and get back to you. :)

I stumbled across your blog on Google. Although I know this blog post was almost a year ago, I do have a 30 while 30 list going on right now. lazytoliving.com/category/30-while-30/ It’s fun to see what other people are doing. I never thought of continuing on and doing a 31 while 31 list. I’ll have to check it out, as I’m only 2 months into my list. Good luck!
