Back in high-school I started a list of things I wanted to do before I died. Now I've recently updated it and added the "correct" title. The items highlighted are what I have actually done. I used to have a lot of little stuff on there like: dance in the rain, skip class, plant a tree my sites are on bigger and better things. My tastes have changed too. At one time I had "Marry Shawn Cassidy," on there. It's a work in progress.

I love your list. I don't have one-can I borrow yours?

Some things on yours that I've done: Hawaii, cruise, WD world, Mexico, Cherry blossoms, met someone famous, drive across country, met bloggers, tattoo. There's more on there that I'd like to do...I may have to add and do this, too!

Save up lots of money if you are going to own a bulldog. They are awesome, but very expensive.
Joint problems, skin problems, eye problems, name it, they got it.

p.s. I used to make these kinds of lists all of the time. Still do occasionally. I wish I could find one of my old ones so that I could get a good laugh out of some of the stuff I wrote way back when.

I need to start a similar list Tracey.

Oh, and when you go to Grand Canyon, be sure to call me up. You can stop by on the way. Then you'd be on your way to meeting 5 blogger buddies too! (Grand Canyon is AWESOME btw).
