  1. I love your list! Love it! Some of the things I was like, I want to do that, too! And a few I've actually done, so that was kind of cool. ;) #97 makes me chuckle, though. And #26 is a MUST! Pedicure more than manicure, honestly. It's so relaxing! Get to it, woman!

  2. Haha, Andrea! As soon as I can I will definitely do it. :)

  3. Your list is inspiring. I am happy I have been able to do some of the things on your list. I wish Yogi Bear was in the park, I love Yogi Bear. Maybe there are lots of things about him there.

    I hope you get to have another baby.

    5 & 19, I would like to do those. 45 I had a chance to do recently, it involved driving to the court 1 1/2 hours away. Maybe next time I will give it a go, I can see it would be good to see what goes on, it would be good for me. The kids will be older then, so I will have to promise myself to give it a go.
