99 Things . . . .

So, a dear blogger friend of mine recently posted these 99 things she's done on her blog, borrowed from a blogger friend of her own, and I just loved reading about what she had or had not done, yet!  Thanks,  Evelien!  So I also looked over all 99 and those I have done are in bold.   As you can see, many of the things I have done are in "clumps" for a total so far of 42/99!  None too shabby I suppose!  I have never done a few of the most "bold" of the 99 and since I haven't yet visited Europe (though I dream about it!), that rules out quite a few on the list for me! 

If you want to borrow this and use it on your blog, please do but also stop in here and leave me a comment, any type and tell me you're doing it because I want to see your list of 99 things that you've done!  :)  It's fun!
