  1. What a fantastic list!! I’m intrigued by the blogging conference you’ve mentioned – where is it held?

    You’ve inspired me to make a list of my own, but 34 things to do before May sounds a bit daunting!

    Oh and I just noticed you have a Susan Branch book on your sidebar – isn’t she fab? I love and own many of her books and products. 🙂

  2. I think that is a fantastic list 🙂 Good luck!

  3. love your list! the tortillas from scratch is fab. on my new list (which i haven’t posted yet) i have homemade marshmallows. i’ll have to remember tortillas for next year. 🙂

    thank you for the link, i’ll link back to yours as soon as i post my list.

  4. This is seriously a great list; I need to make one! I just found Freecycle recently, and I requested RecycleBank to come to our city. Do you get RecycleBank? I really want to join a CSA as well. And just so you know, we have a guest room here in Austin that you’re more than welcome to when you make your trip!

  5. I love your list, and as I’m already 31, I think mine will have to be 32 things to do. lol. Before I turned 30 I thought I’d accomplish several things, and to my despair even more than a year later, another bday passed, and I still haven’t accomplished them. Hmm, makes me think I should blog about it, then I will be more accountable to actually do it. Great post, and I love the FLYLADY too.
