I can assist you with things 12 (babysittng of course, not as the third wheel), 13, 25.
I would love to be involved in things 17 and 26.
And things 11, 18, 19, and 27 are just straight up good ideas.
agreed. let’s get together, yeah yeah yeah!
I can be your third wheel.
I am right there with you on 6, 10, 16, 18-20. Many ideas for #22 always. And when I read #25 I definitely thought you meant your hair at first. Which would be cool.
a beehive would be cool!
what is your favorite book to recommend?
The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay. The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie. Speak. Saturday. Jayber Crow. Hoping that I’ve hit on something up your alley in there. 🙂
Why is #27 so difficult? I’ve been paying for dental insurance for YEARS and haven’t been. Yeesh.
In other news, didn’t you just finish your 27th year? Like how you turn 1 after your first year of life? Or am I forgetting your actual age?
Never mind. I just realized that you’re celebrating your 27th year, not planning for your 27th year. Strike that from the record.
i have an appt on next wednesday but no insurance. it’s been three years and i’ve never been so scared to go to the dentist. yikes!
Happy Birthday! great list!
