31 While 31

The year I turned 27 (2007) I decided that I wanted to make a list of 27 things to do that year. Kind of a New Year’s Resolutions, but easier. Small, obtainable goals! Over the past few years I have done a decent job of having new adventures, trying new things and marking things off my To Do list every year. It is a fun way to challenge myself! I don’t take the list too seriously because the goal is to have fun and enjoy life.  I’ll update this list as the year progresses and hopefully you can watch me mark things off one by one!

This is a great list. Think I should make one, although I’m NOT doing 55 while 55! As for the every letter of the alphabet – did you mean things that look like the letter? I’ve tried – it’s not easy.

Oh gosh no! That sounds like it would be really difficult! I was thinking of something that started with the letter of the alphabet. That seems manageable, right?!

I look forward to seeing your list!!! How about 11 in 2011?

Erin! Amazing that you have been doing this for four years now. I recently turned 30 and have developed a list for this year as well. Best of luck to you, and look forward to reading!

I LOVE this idea. I hope you’re having fun doing this. I’m going to have to steal this idea 🙂

I hope you do! So fun!

This is such a fun idea! My 22nd birthday is coming up this month and would love to make a list of my own [if you don’t mind me using the idea?]!

What a wonderful idea! I turn 30 next year and definitely want to make a list like this. Love it! 🙂
