    I think this is a really great idea!

  5. Ice Skating in NYC is SO MUCH FUN. I haven’t been yet this year. No one wants to go with me!

  6. I love this. If you need some to teach you to knit, I’d be happy to. And if you need a ballet buddy, call me. No one down here likes the ballet and I’ve wanted to see it for years 🙂 Good luck with your list. Always feels good to check something off.

  7. Thanks, Kel! One day, you will have to teach me to knit.
