  1. I need to make one of these lists. I am in a bit of a rut and just need some motivation to get out there and do new things. I like #6 and #28, I can’t remember the last time I flew a kite, drank wine on the other hand… : )

  2. What kind of tattoo and where?
    And I highly recommend #16. Unfortunately, I never got the chance to take one before we bought our house but two of my brothers did and boy did they learn a lot!

  3. NINE! days.

    Also, re: #36, !!!!!!!!!

    I can’t wait for you to get your tattoo, too. Did I tell you I found a shop I love here in Portland to do mine? I just have to schedule it!

  4. I know there’s only 37 on there but me thinks you forgot: visit DC and Marie. I know, I’m so self-involved.

    I actually got my moles checked this week. Peace of mind is a good thing so go get them looked at!

  5. 37. TATTOO!!!
    You know, my dearest friend, Leslie is a tattoo artist. She does all my recent work, Erin’s work and like 10 of my friends work. Hint hint.

    36. :>)

    29. ‘Bout time

    12. Good for the soul

    14. Might be the best one

    Love you, sistafriend


  6. I was a part of the Glee Flash mob it was so much fun! we are doing it again at the end of June, I think dance practice starts in May!

  7. I like number 36! Except ever since your April Fool’s joke I will never believe you when you talk about shacking up, ever again.

  8. I love it!

    And, by the way, OMG, you could check a lot of those off if you came to Colorado… ๐Ÿ™‚ Road trip? Check! Trip with mom and sis? Check! WHITE WATER RAFTING? OMG, CHECK! ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Squee! I love this list, one of my faves being your commitment to visiting my motherland!

    May this be a year full of only the best in health, luck, and booze. You deserve nothing less.


  10. Vahid and I are going kayaking sometime this summer (I believe those are still our tentative plans at least) you and Mr. Darcy should totally come! Kayaking is the bees knees.

    I am excited for new glasses. Next to shoes and undies, glasses are like my favorite thing to shop for.

    See you in 9 days! (I JUST got my passport today. Whew.)

  11. Is #36 a slip-it-in announcement?
    I heartily agree with #26 (I’ve been to the 1st and am dying to try the wolf.

  12. Shackin’ up! Sneaky way to announce the possibility. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Happy 37th birthday, Sizz. I hope you get everything you hope for and MORE!

  13. I’ve had season tickets to two theaters for well over 15 years and it’s one of my favorite things to do. Good choice! How close are you to Seattle? A lot of Broadway shows do previews in Seattle before they open in NYC.

    I just bought a Kindle last night and am hoping that helps me read at least a book a month, too! I still love real books, but have really slacked off for a long time now.

    Real mail– a really good idea! I send birthday cards by mail, thank you notes, and “thinking of you” notes. I love getting them, so I’m guessing other people do, too!

    Have a wonderful birthday!

  14. These all sound wonderful! Especially the CA one. I will drive to SF if you go there for the CA trip. Was planning on TC In Canada… got my passport renewed and everything…then Higgy had his stroke…missed my chance to meet you. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I keep telling Hilly and Dan that we need to make it to Seattle…I’ve never been.

  15. Where’s the “get to know my blog-bro better” one? *sniffle*

    JK. Here’s hoping you make it through the list… and share all the details with us!

  16. oops, that comment was for the other post on 37 Positives… oh well, this list is a good one too. A lot of fun will come from ticking those off ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. Okay I got #28 covered. Let’s start figuring out dates and times we can meet and where!!!
    Glad I could help with your list!
