17. Cook a new meal – I’m saying this is a half, because it wasn’t completely a new meal. Grilling brats is one of our favs, but we finally tried grilling corn – wait for it – on the grill! Oh my! We’ve been missing out! We soaked them in water with some salt for about an hour and a half. Then we put them right on the grill. Seriously that’s it! Usually I husk it before we grill them, but they were SO tasty doing it this way!

  21. Great idea! I love that you call them wishes instead of goals!

    Looks like you’ve got a great plan. As a bit of an introvert, I did the top thing that’s always on my list – socialize! Went out to a friend’s party, and also went to a signing at a local bookstore with one of my favorite authors.
