The (Mighty) Life List

I’m not usually one for New Year’s resolutions –I made some this year, which I may be changing already… three days into 2010. But Maggie over at Mighty Girl has intrigued me, with her Might Life List and the adventures as she crosses things off.

This is may continue to change (since I wanted 100 and only have 80-something, slacker!) but here’s my attempt. It’s a list of my own ideas, and ones I shamelessly stole from people who dream bigger than me:

Take a dance class (Started 01.05.10)
Buy a fancy camera and learn how to use it

Set up a 401k
Throw a proper dinner party with cloth napkins and courses and all
Find the ultimate little black dress

    Yay! I too learned to like tea without sweetner, and the trick for me was to only drink really good tea. Not sure if you’re already doing this, but if not, I posted about it ages ago. Maybe the post will help you on your adventure this month. I’m rooting for you!

      I bookmarked that post and intend to take on my tea-hunting adventure this weekend. Can’t wait!
