Well, I'm off to a good start seeing as today is day 1 and I've already crossed off #1. Happy birthday to me! Today is #34. I've got what's sure to be a crazy year ahead of me, thanks to my bright idea to go to grad school, but with a little bit of luck and a lot of determination, it's sure to be a year full of fun things.

I didn't do the best job on my list last year (again thanks to surprising myself by going back to school) but I accomplished a lot of things and had a great 33rd year. Here's hoping 34 will be even better.

1. Sell some cameras - do I really need 52? (six of them are in those boxes)
2. See Redfish Lake
3. Hang out in Boise (one night is never enough)
4. Stay in a cabin
5. Throw a party
6. Stay in a yurt (we had reservations for one in July but they got cancelled due to fire hazard!)
7. Travel with friends
8. Camp
9. Kayak
10. Knit something
11. Road trip with my husband
12. Bake bread
13. Enjoy a Dole pineapple whip Thanks, Disneyland.

15. Try 10 new foods - 16 down (avocado, kiwi, tea, broccolini, broccoli rabe, bahn mi, espresso, stuffed peppers, mocha, Dolmathes, quinoa, eggplant, polenta, mushrooms, acorn squash, latte)
16. Try five new restaurants - (Copper Onion, Brewforia, Greek Souvlaki, Mad Greek, Dickey's BBQ)
17. Take the MAT
18. Visit a national park or monument
19. Get thee to an outdoor music venue
20. Grow some veggies
21. See a show at the Knitting Factory Thanks, UM!
22. Earn my NEPA Certificate (classwork is done, will get the official paper in Dec. 2013 when I graduate!)
23. Watch some baseball
24. Take a little family trip
25. Waste some film
26. Make a book
27. Hike
28. Go disc golfing
29. Relax at the cabin
30. Celebrate the 3rd annual Nut Brown Day
