Been There, Haven't Done That, And.... No Way!

Since January seems to be all about lists, I thought this would be a good time to post a little something I had forgotten about.
My blogger buddy Jerrie posted this meme a while back. She left an open invitation to anyone who wanted to play along. I ran through the list, plugged in my answers and left this post in my drafts to publish another day....in proper Shelly fashion I sorta forgot about it.
I've been making a few fun lists for the new year....but that's another post. For now I'll leave you with this.
It's a random list of 100 things, you're supposed to alter the print to bold if you've done whatever is listed. I followed Jerrie's lead and added the odd sassy comment to some of the line items....cuz I kinda like being a little sassy once in a while. * (my sassy comments)
If you want to play along just cut and paste and post on your blog...be sure to let me know because I'd love to pop on over and read all about it!

I'm going to save this one and work on it too. It's quite interesting and not so deep and mind-boggling.
