My Mighty List

Inspired by my blogging amiga Trailer Wife and a cool blogger Mighty Girl, I've decided to write my own Mighty Life List. Please note that Mighty Girl's list has been sponsored by Intel. Yeah, Intel. (If anyone wants to sponsor my life list, please feel free to hit me up with an email. Yes, I accept PayPal, and personal checks.)

I've tried to write one of these lists before, but they always feel incomplete. I've visited several other sites for inspiration, and to be honest, my list is well over 100. But hey, its my list, it can be as long as I want, right?!? I've also added things that I've already done, which I'm pretty proud of, so I think its fair to have them on my list. Its a work in progress, but I think its coming along.
