    You guys, I am on fire with my life list. Serious fire. Blow me out. No, don’t, because I like it hot.

    That wasn’t supposed to sound quite the way that it sounded.

    Anyway, I’ve been life listing this week, and you will be so proud of what I accomplished:

    I have no photographic evidence of #2, but you’ll have to trust me on this one. I’m Queen of splits in this house. And it turns out, it’s not super hard. A lot of stretching with maybe a bit of wine and you’re pretty much a gymnast. Check indeed.

    Mary from the grocery store (Hi, Mary!) is now the proud owner of a shiny, new life list. We struck up a conversation about olive oil and pretty soon we were exchanging life-long goals and childhood dreams. Mary wants to ride a horse (go get ’em, Mary!) and shoot a gun. Probably not at the same time. I hope.

    I am completely and totally enrolled in an online drawing class that starts in January (join me! Do it!). After reading Carla’s top five reasons to take her Silly class, I knew it would be the perfect spot for me. Plus? Online. Meaning pajamas. Bonus. If you’d like to join and learn to draw (while filling out worksheets, which I LOVE), you can sign up here. I’ll keep you posted on how it goes when I finish!

    I joined a gym (don’t make fun) this week because I like cheese and am pushing 30. Apparently, that’s a bit of a bad combo for my metabolism. And Monday, I walked like eight miles b/c I was engrossed in a book and didn’t notice. Tuesday, I walked two miles. And today? Today, I ran. I ran like the wind (on a non-windy day, I suppose) for an entire mile. Without stopping. I promise. It took me 14 minutes, so I suppose that’s more like jogging, but pish posh. I did it. And I am Woman. Hear me super Roar.

    Fellow life listers — get on it. You’ve got to catch me (especially now that I can run fast. Sort of.)!

    • So proud of you! Especially on the running. Hooray for checking items off the list!

    • thank you, kristen! running isn’t as bad as i thought it’d be! i’m going back today!

    • HOLY EFFING SHIZZ ERIN! Why didn’t you call me after you ran a whole mile?! WHAT! OK now you’re screwed because you are running with me at Alt Summit. OMG DUDE

    • leah

      Congrats on so many life goals completed! Especially the splits–you’re right, it just takes a little streching. I remember being little and watching the “big girls” in dance class doing these lungey-type streches before their splits. And i then used those same streches to teach myself a few years back. :)

      Also, i like your life list–is it cheating to start with yours and modify it to change a few? i’m not feeling very creative these days. lol :) Maybe i’ll just use it for inspiration. :)

      happy new year!

    • Ha — I am NOT running w/ you at Alt. That is the craziest thing ever. You run like, BILLIONS of miles, Jaime. I stop at 1. Ha.

    • good job. I seriously don’t think i could get close to running a mile.
      Why is pushing 30 so disastrous for our body. 30 should be young right! I did a work out with my 22 year old sister this weekend. It was NOT pretty on my part.

      Also at my old age my flexibility is terrible. Back in the day when I was taking Karate I could do splits and everything – no I can’t even touch my toes! I hate getting old. I gotta figure out a plan about getting in shape – I know I’ll never go to a gym though.

    • LOOK AT YOU GO!! <3

    • thanks, kt!!!

    • That is awesome! and inspiring!

    • this is awesome! and hilarious. and now i’m working on my life list…….do you get to check something off for inspiring others? :)
