  1. I'm excited to be on your blog today!!! And I love your list. :)

  2. Happy happy birthday! I turned 24 on Tuesday, so I'm right there with you. I don't have a 25 by 25 list, so maybe I should make one quickly and get crackin' on it.
    Also, to celebrate all of these lovely March birthdays, I'm hosting a Birthday Party Bloghop on Monday. I'd love for you to link this up!

  3. You've never been to the Toronto Zoo?! You must come back just to go there! I love the Zoo. Make sure the day isn't too too hot though, there's lots of walking.

  4. Oh man. I had a hard time turning 25. When my friend turned 25 we went to the local children's museum because in our minds when you're 25 you can't be a kid anymore! Ha! Now I'm just really REALLY worried about 30 in a couple years!

  5. I am excite dot have you! haha :)

  6. No, Never been! I almost went last October but the weather was bad. Hopefully this year will be the year!

  7. Happy Birthday! This post made me laugh because I turn 25 in May and I'm pretty close to loosing my shit over that one. haha. Though, I don't know what was worse than turning 16 and having my 8 year old brother tell me that my life was half over. (I told my mom if for some strange reason I do die at age 32, my brother has to get up and tell that story at my funeral.)

  8. Ah, 30 would be a hard one too! Lol so would 50....Oh Jeeze, now I'm freaking myself out, haha.

  9. Thanks! Haha your life is just starting at 16! Half over at 25 though ;) Lol, just kidding of course!


I would love to hear what you think! Comments make my day and I try my best to reply to every single one via email response :)
