my bucket list & goodbye to 2011

So a new year is here and I had so much to be thankful for last year.
  I have a great job as a hairstylist to so many wonderful and loyal clients. I also have a beautiful family; my husband of almost 10 years who puts up with my ADD and frequent OCD!
He tries to be patient with all my projects, even though I haven't finished the old ones and even tolerates my constant furniture rearranging. I often hear him say, 'why do YOUR projects always involve ME'. Tehe.
  My 3 children are happy and healthy and they mean the world to me. In a time when alot of family's are still suffering we have a nice and warm home, food on the table and our health!
  I started this blog in late August and have loved every minute of it!
The feedback and support I have received from fellow bloggers has been so helpful to me and I am inspired every day with each new post I read from the blogs I follow and love when I stumble across a new blog that I can't wait to hear more from!
  I have come up with a bucket list below, to help keep me on track. I often tend to get obsessive about something and let everything else slip away. I guess it is part of my mild OCD, and I am trying to work on this.
  The list is also posted on my sidebar that will stay up all year long. I will highlight it and add a link when I have that project completed.
