Your list is great. A mix of yeah, totally doable and then more challenging ones, plus some that are "easier said that done" ... i.e. floss every day for a week. Sure, sounds easy, but then don't we always end up forgetting? Have fun working on the list --- and more important, have a very merry birthday!!

I figured you would be one to appreciate my "very merry" reference seeing as you love Disney as much as I do! ;)
