  1. It’s one of the shorter lists that I’ve seen but it is by far the most meaningful list with items such as #4, #5, #7, #16 and #19.

    • Thanks Paul, you are right my list is short 🙂 Trying to keep it manageable; plus as you pointed out, many of my goals are deep and ongoing, those take a lot of commitment and time. I like your goals and achievements. Will be a regular visitor at your site. Thanks for peeking in here.

  2. Start 33 by joining us for Martinis and Manicures tomorrow night in East Greenwich at 7 PM! It’s going to be a while before I can get out in the evenings again w.out Thomas so…come!!!!

    • This sounds very fun indeed. I’ve never had a Martini before believe it or not. Need to arrange for childcare. Will do my best to be there.

  4. I really like your list! I have been thinking of taking a belly dancing course, the fact you have said RE-taking..should I assume it’s awesome and I definately should?x

  5. I love your list. We have some similar interests, particularly #6, #17, and #23. When you find the secret to getting organized, let me know 🙂 Cheers.

    • I know getting organized is easier said than done! I’m thinking baby steps; will report on my progress. Thanks for peeking in here and for leaving feedback. Blessings.

  6. I finally read your buckle list.

  7. Hey girlie…love the whole list idea…definitely makes you stop and think. Thanks for making me part of this journey! My favorite items are 1,2, 4 & 5! I have taken salsa lessons and it’s a load of fun! I wish you lived closer so we can take classes together. Please continue to keep me posted…

    Love always!

    • I am so glad you peeked in. I wish we lived closer as well, we could do some fun stuff together and help each other out with the not-so-fun stuff. Love you back.

    Love it! Thanks for including me in on your blog. You are a brave soul and a kindred spirit. 🙂

  9. I realized it’s best to check out your posts on my laptop not my phone. No wonder I couldn’t find “The List” – It’s quite a list ! So do you plan to work on one at a time ?
    Hope the b’day party plans are coming along well.

    • Ohhh, well good thing you figured it out. Working on the list one item at a time was my initial plan. However, I’ve realized there are a few items that will be ongoing and I am trying to figure out how to manage those in terms of tracking my progress and remaining accountable. If you click on the sub-page tittled Birthday Bash (under The List) you will see I’ve made some progress with this task; by the way, you should have received a Save the Date did you?

  10. Wow! that’s quite a list, but knowing you, I KNOW that you can do it. I can help with anything you need. I would like to at least attempt to make it to your party. I know your birtdate, but when are you planning to have the party on that same date? Oh! i am assuming that i am invited. ;). O

    • But of course my dear, you are more than invited. I am having it on the Saturday after my birthday; don’t worry, you’ll get an invite. So, let me know your opinion on the questions I posted. I need some feedback! 🙂

  11. wish I was closer, we can join salchata to get lessons in salsa(not like I really need them) and bachata. Always fun to master both. good luck with all your goals. expecting an invite to this party.
