  1. Thats a GREAT list! You know... we were pretty darn close to do #18!! :)

  2. Awesome stuff here! You totally could have crossed off the jumping in the lake one, hahah. I like this, just by writing things down it makes you feel like you are closer to accomplishing them. Didn't know you wanted a tatoo...and haven't you started your own business?

  3. I have a tattoo and love it! :) NEVER have regretted it once! :) I love your list :) I want to do like 98 percent of it! :)

  4. LOL @ LeeAnn!! :) Awesome list, Nicole! Hope you get to cross lots of them off! You should do an update like, once a year or once every 6 months to show your progress!

  5. Geez, and I had a hard time coming up with 5 things on my list!

  6. Love the list... love it! I too want a tatoo... my friend Beth and I are totally obsessed. Where? What? That's the question!!! Great idea... might have to create a list myself!
