I love lists.

1 Jun

Are you just saying you love lists or do you really love lists? (sorry, must use Will Farrell movie quotes at all possible opportunities, its one of my core values. Not really, but maybe.)

I am a list girl through and through. Lists and post-its…apparently it really is the small things in life that make you happy ;). Because of the plethra of list that I create on every and any paper I can find, I seldom remember where they are placed. I’m a scribbler, a doodler at heart. I am the type of person who makes a list for the mere point of making a list. Even if I have already accomplished something, I will put it on the list just so I can cross it off my list. Is that weird? Anyways…I thought I’d share my growing “shows” list…
