Birthday Bucket List Review 2014

Birthday Bucket List

Each year before my birthday I come up with a list of things to do before my next birthday.  The number of things I put on the list is the same as my age.  I have been doing it for several years now and I really like it.  Since my birthday was yesterday I decided to post about the list and show you what I was able to do.  Red means I was not able to do it, and black text are things I have done!

32 Things to Do Before I am 33
