50 Things for 2011

Ok, so here is the official list of (almost)* 50 things I would like to do or achieve in 2011.  Although, I have already started working on some of my goals this month, I will only officially begin on the 1st of Feb since it is already so late in the month (Yes, I even procrastinate on my New Years Resolutions!).  From now on I will log my progress in the "50 Things for 2011" tab on the top of my page just in case you would like to follow along with me.  I have never done something like this before and am really excited to see where this takes me... 2011 is going to be a good year... I can just feel it! :)

*The reason I say almost is because a few of the goals are a secret and are thus not posted, but I promise, there really are a total of 50!
