This is a great list, Holly!

There are so many things on your list that I want to do too!

Spin Class is so.much.fun once you get past the part where you feel like you're going to die!

Also, Bingo is great, but those people take it so seriously!!

Wow Holly! What a great idea! So many things to do! I swear I had a thought for almost every single one of these items so I'm going to have to narrow down my comments. Here goes:

I totally want to try dry shampoo too! I hope it works... and also, round brushes are awesome once you get the hang of it. I found one that has a release button on the end just in case you get it stuck! While we're on the hair thing I was so nervous to dye my hair for the firs time, but now I love it. My hair looks so much shinier!

I too want to read a book series this year. Not sure what it'll be yet. Let me know if you find a good one. I could probably recommend a book for every other category though, especially the audiobooks!

Also, your fitness goals are impressive! I haven't been doing too good with mine lately. But I'm getting back on the wagon... gotta get those pushups in!

Anyway, good luck with all that! I'm sure you'll do great!
