  1. jodi, I have a feeling my mom might agree with you about #13! And #26 was a whim at the end, and the more I think about it, the more I’m LOVING that idea.

  2. I wish I was there to do #2 and #24 with you. Or better yet, to combine #2 and #24! I also seriously need to do #3. And as far as #8 goes, let us know if you get a hankerin’ to come to Texas. We’ve got a spare bedroom that could be yours for a couple of days… 🙂

  3. Cole, #2 and #24 will definitely have to be combined! (They’ll probably hitch a ride on 52 Beers, while they’re at it.) I’m actually really hoping they can be combined for awesome in October, but we’ll see! Texas is awfully tempting…..

  4. I’ll take care of number 4 & you can teach me to crochet, which will strike one off of my list 🙂

    We can do number 1 the next time we go to the movies if you want … ooh, or we can go to the BOARDWALK and play skeeball AND go to a photobooth.

  5. Becky, I’m not sure the one at the mall counts.. but we’ll have to investigate. And I definitely plan on taking you up on your offer to help me with number 4!!!
