I've seen this floating around Blogland, so I thought I'd give it a try. Bold things are things I've done. I'm thinking I might come back to this list over time to see if I can cross some of these babies off. 

For now, here you go:

1. Started your own blog

2. Slept under the stars
Pretty sure I slept in a blow up jumper once {I was young, don't judge my lack of certainty}. 

3. Played in a band
Always wanted to though.

4. Visited Hawaii
Read about one trip here.

5. Watched a meteor shower
Junior year of college.

6. Given more than you could afford to charity

7. Been to Disneyland
Advantage to living in SoCal, been many times.

High school senior trip
Freshman year of college

8. Climbed a mountain
Was gonna say Big Bear Mountain, but realized I drove up that one.

9. Held a praying mantis

10. Sang a solo
Totally sang Peter Pan's "I won't grow up." I wish I had video footage, it'd be all over this blog.

11. Bungee jumped
I feel like I have to do this at some point.

12. Visited Paris
I definitely have to do this at some point.

13. Watched a lightening storm

14. Taught yourself an art from scratch
I used to play piano by ear. And I mean like 2 songs that were not difficult, but counts, right?

15. Adopted a child
Maybe one day...

16. Had food poisoning
Fun stuff.

17. Walked to the top of the Statue of Liberty
But I have been there! We took the lazy, ride a boat around the statue, option.

18. Grown your own vegetables

19. Seen the Mona Lisa in France

20. Slept on an overnight train

21. Had a pillow fight

22. Hitch hiked
But I have picked up a hitch hiker! That was Mom and Dad's call. In Hawaii. Not sketch at all.

23. Taken a sick day when you're not ill
Totally got caught too. Cried the whole time when I was in line for a ride at Sea World.

24. Built a snow fort

25. Held a lamb
But I have held a baby cow!

26. Gone skinny dipping

27. Run a marathon
Hopefully one day! Gotta get through this 10K first.

28. Ridden in a gondala in Venice
I really need to get out of the country to start checking some of these off.

29. Seen a total eclipse

30. Watched a sunrise or sunset
The fam loves trying to spot the green flash at sunset.

31. Hit a home run

32. Been on a cruise
Doing this soon, for sure.

33. Seen Niagra Falls in person

34. Visited the birthplace of your ancestors
Hopefully going to Israel next summer to start this traveling tradition.

35. Seen an Amish community

36. Taught yourself a new language
Totally spoke Gibberish in Elementary School. All the cool kids did it. I still can.

37. Had enough money to be truly satisfied
Honestly? Right now, I am truly satisfied with how much money I have.

38. Seen the Leaning Tower of Pisa in person
See my comment to #28.

39. Gone rock climbing
I used to be way better at it, now I kind of suck.

Read last comment.

51. Gone scuba diving or snorkeling
Both, but scuba diving was only in a pool. Super cool, I know.

52. Kissed in the rain

53. Played in the mud
There's a super cute pic of us neighbors playing in the mud as babies/toddlers. Maybe I'll dig it up sometime, but pretty sure I'm only in a diaper. Almost as scandalous as skinny dipping.

54. Gone to a drive in theater
Love the drive in!

55. Been in a movie

56. Visited the Great Wall of China

57. Started a business

Got pretty far in the belt system too, ballerrr.

59. Visited Russia

60. Served at a soup kitchen

61. Sold Girl Scout cookies
But I was in Girl Scouts for like a week.

62. Gone whale watching
This question still depresses me because my brother had a whale watching birthday party, and I was told that there wasn't enough room on the boat for me to go. But they totally didn't see any whales. Ha, Karma!
