Some of you who've been reading for awhile might recognize a few of these from my 22 things to do before I turn 22 list. Remember how I jokingly put a 23rd item at the end that said "Get pregnant."? Well, turns out, that actually happened. And then I became horribly ill for 3 months straight, so I wasn't doing much of anything unless it involved my bed or my toilet. Sadly, this meant that many of the things on my list didn't get accomplished. Here's a copy of the list showing what I did manage to do. note: Some items weren't accomplished until after my birthday, but I decided to count them because I did at least make an effort to do them..and plus, I couldn't use them on this list if I'd done them already.
4. Exercise every day, except Sunday.
5. Visit the "English Village Shoppe and Tea Garden" that I drive by every day on my way to work.
