My 20 are picked....

It's official...I have picked my 20 things to do & most are actually already set for specific dates. Now it's time for the interaction of this blog to start. It's time for you my dear readers to tell me the other 20 things I need to do.

Below is the remains of the list after taking out my 20 things, plus a few back ups in case things change. Also taken out are things that are just a little out of the price range at the moment. So everyone start making their suggestions from the remaining list. Feel free to pick 20 things. Once I get closer to the end of the month, I will tally up the votes & plan out the remaining weeks. Have fun!!

May 1st is quickly approaching.
I'm looking forward to my 40 weeks.
I'm looking forward to the fun.
I'm looking forward to a birthday...finally!

The weather is still funky here in the Big Apple. We actually had hail falling from the sky yesterday. And today it's sunny, but cool. The dreaded weatherman is expecting rain for early next week. Oh well...this too shall pass. Spring will get here...sooner or later.
