Hello friends! That time of year has come again for me to look at the year ahead, think about a few things I want to accomplish and put those items into a nice little list. This list of items to accomplish is meant to be fun and to be used as a tool to drive me to do things that I may otherwise not think to do. This list isn’t meant to be stressful or a pain in my butt, but rather doable and entertaining. There is no pressure to finish this list, but the satisfaction in doing so would be immense. Or I imagine it would be if I had ever finished my list. I’m talking about the X While X list. I’ve been making this list for several years now and started documenting my list fun a few years ago. No, I haven’t been 100% successful in marking everything off the list, but it was fun trying.
On Feb 13th I turned 32 and officially my list name changed from 31W31 to 32W32.

*A new feature to this list is that for every item I complete I will add $5 to the Spa Day Savings jar. For every item that I do not complete I will donate $5 to the Humane Society. <—Don’t worry. I donate on a regular basis, but this would be in addition to my yearly donation.
