Life List

My friend Mary Allison over at Southern Sober Girl Runs had posted her "Life List" the other day.. and I thought why not jump on the train! I have always kept one - but I complete my list a little differently.. I started with only one or two things on it - graduate with my teaching degree, buy a Maltese, but as soon as I complete one thing, I must add another to my list... So here ya go - here is my "Life List!" If it is crossed off - I have already completed it!
