I LOVE your list!!! I'm doing one too (It's in the under Mission 101 under the header of my blog), but I don't think mine is nearly as creative as yours LOL.

I love the whole process though, I've started two in the past and never completed them and this time I'm determined to!

Loving this list Charlotte! Those last two items are great--when I make mine I might have to steal those. After wedding bonanza is over I'm definitely making a list of my own to begin to conquer.

Can't wait to hear stories of you crossing all of these off!
