Dear 2012...

In honor of the new year starting this weekend I'm presenting you with my 2012 BTD list. I made one for the first time for 2011 and because I'm a dork awesome it was fun to cross things off my list. Ok, I used the strikeout button, but still... I made that list my bitch! The list is comprised of things that I want to do within the year whether I've been putting them off, want to do them again, or it's something I needed to do. Last year the big ticket item was "find a new job". That one got crossed off with angels singing and fireworks bursting. Major accomplishment. I find this also gives me a way to measure my accomplishments and be able to say, Yea. I did that!

2012 Big To Do

2) Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

So that's the list... for now. I don't expect to do everything, but I'll do what I can. What are you most looking forward to doing next year?


  1. Awesome list! Though fair warning: Radio City Christmas Spectacular is overrated and pretty cheesy. I went in 7th grade and didn't really like it even then. (And I am ALL ABOUT Christmas)

  2. Oooh. I may have to make one of these for myself!!!

  3. Great list! I love DC. Of course, I'm biased since I live in the DC metro area.

    I wanna go with you when you do 18 and 32!

  4. that's awesome! good luck with all that! it's gonna be a good year, i'm sure! and thank you for inspiring me, i'm going to finally finish and post my 25 x 25 list so my blogosphere can join in the fun as well. cheers! happy new year! xo
