    I love your list! I wrote down all the ones I've done...41. We like many of the same things. How funny that quite a few I've just done in the past 5 years.

    So I did the same thing as Debbie while I was going through it and counted the ones that I had one... a whopping 31! Unfortunately many of mine were while I was younger. :)

    I love this list Bree and I know that since you have made it known, you can do it!
