Promise Me

Ok.... Drum roll please.....

I was hanging out with friends yesterday (which resulted in a nice self-inflicted headache this morning :-) they took precedence over my blog. But finally, as promised, my list for Promise Me.
These are in no particular order, except the order that I wrote them in. I've added a tab at the top of my blog that you can click on and keep track of my progress. As I said, I will be posting pictures of my accomplishments or progress. I've done 34 as that is how old I'll be this year. (actually I wrote 33, and then whilst writing this, I really wanted a special meaning behind it, so sneakily cheated by adding one more after my date deadline of the list)
Some are silly, some are simple, some are complicated. enjoy...

  2. Paint a canvas (or two) for the guest bedroom
  3. Photo-shoot of the kids for the bathroom & give kids bathroom a makeover
  4. Get eyelash extensions (tee hee hee)
  5. Take a day and explore JB
  6. Picnic with bubbles with the kids and take photos (thanks for this idea Jess)
