52 Things a girl should do in her lifetime

I am a huge fan of “Things to do before I die” lists, making them, reading them, and hearing about  other people’s lists tpp! I think it’s important for all of us to take the time to make one of these lists in our lifetime (ha! maybe we should put that on our list too). Just to get down on paper some of the cool experiences we want to, well, experience, in our life time at some point.

This is really so much fun to do and easy to get carried away with. My friend Jennifer even wanted to LAMINATE her list.

I decided to put together a list for women. I did my research on the internet for some kick-ass experiences we women could use in our lifetime, and also put my little brain and heart to work.

I hope you like it.
