33 While 33

In 2007 on the day I turned 27 I created a list of 27 things I wanted to do before I turned 28. That little list has turned into an annual tradition! 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. I don’t take the list too seriously because the goal is to have fun and enjoy life, but I do enjoy writing DONE!  Be sure to check back in every now and then to see how I’m doing on marking these items off one by one!

Check out previous years below:

For the items that I accomplish I get $5 towards a new bag fund. I’m thinking some top notch Michael Kors of some type. For those that I do not accomplish I will add $5 towards a donation to the Merwin Memorial Free Animal Clinic. <—Don’t worry. I donate on a regular basis, but this would be in addition to my yearly donation.
