What are the things you would like to achieve before your next birthday?


  1. Thanks for the link Lisa! I'm glad I have inspired you! Good luck with your list!

  2. I've seen a few of these around... I think my birthday is too close to do one this year, but maybe next year!

  3. I love someone (my wife) who loves lists. I however am not good with them but understand their power!

    Good luck

  4. Yay, Lisa, i'm follower 25 now so you're half way there!!
    Oh do make gnocchi, it's so not scary, it's just lovely & so light, delicious, cooks quickly, brilliant all round family fun meal. Fondant, hmmm, i'm still not a massive fan of eating it but looking at it on a cake, spectacular.
    Have a blast working towards your 28th year in this world. Gosh, while ago for me, i had my 4th baby in my belly, was a gorgeous year!! Love Posie

  5. Good on you Lisa. I love the idea of making a list of things to achieve before my next birthday - I always talk about it but never get around to doing it. I love that they are all realistic, so I have no doubt you will achieve them!

  6. Ah, this is a great idea! So much better than that 101 in 1001 thing. Before my next birthday I hope all of my domains are functional, and I hope to beat all five Legend of Zelda games that I own. I also hope to get my first web design client. Lots of unrealistic goals for me.

    Bubby is so adorable!

  7. Good luck with your list. I am hopeless at making pastry from scratch and have actually just given up on it. I do a mean roast pork though....

    Your bubby is super cute.

  8. You've got a few of your items happening already so you are off to a good start. Good luck!

  9. That IS a great idea Lisa... and all I can say is you are going to be busy busy busy, but lots of great things to achieve in there xo
    Gorgeous photo by the way!

  10. Haha, my birthday's in a couple of weeks so I don't know what I'll achieve by then. Here's a great, really easy, delicious gnocchi recipe! Even I could make it and I'm a terrible cook - http://gourmetgirl-friend.blogspot.com.au/2011/06/goldilocks-5-bears.html then you can cross another one off!! x

  11. I've just become member number 30! Maybe we could rendezvous for a coffee and then you could cross out 'Meet blog friends in real life.....'! Rx
