#19: Visit 5 States. CHECK.

I went on a extensive road trip this weekend to help launch a fabulous makeup line designed by my cousin and ran by us as a family in Washington DC. The trip took 12-14 hrs each way but with 3 iPods, lots of snacks and good eatin', and a great synergy with the fam, it didn't feel that long at all. 

Number 19 on my YEAR LIST. Done-zo.

Indiana Rest Stop

MY 2011 LIST

I'm sure everyone has a bucket list; the things they want to accomplish or do before they die. (Or kick the bucket!) I've started that list but I also decided to make a list of things I wanted to do before the end of the year. I figure if I set goals by a specific time in the near future, I would be more motivated to follow through. Here's my list and I would really love to see your own! Just link your list back to my comments. I might have to borrow some ideas! =)
