I have met four of the New Kid's in 1994. (And two were jerks, but I still love them.)

I have lived on my own.

I have auditioned for Wheel of Fortune.

I have been married to my husband for 4.5 years, but have known him for 17.

I have run a stop sign and hit a cop. (Oh yes. I have.)

I have experienced ESP.

I have driven ten hours straight.

I have been insubordinate.

I have stood five feet from a roaring train just to get my flattened penny.

I have picked the worst guy and the BEST.

I have eaten at Perkins once a week for the past six months.

I have painted a Goodwill coffee table! (And it looks gooood! I'll show you tomorrow!)

What have you done??


  1. Oooh, you ate haggis? I was not brave enough to try it when I went to Scotland a few years ago... way to go! lol

  2. First, I would LOVE to do an Ikea trip with you.

    Second, I love your list. I'll have to do something like this. You've done a lot of really cool things...well, except for the whole hitting the cop thing. That couldn't have been

  3. You have done way more cool stuff than me! I'm jealous of a lot of them, but not the hitting a cop!

    I'm REALLY jealos of your NKOTB interaction...4 concerts? DANG!

    And please, I need to know...who were the jerks? (bet I can guess!)

    I have ridden in an elevator with Hakeem Olajuwon. NBA star for those who don't know. That's probably my coolest (only?) celebrity encounter.


  4. could you stop by my blog please and thank you and answer a question for me. I know you paint just about btw i also painted a cheap 6 dollar white mini blind in a chocolate brown (its a for now blind) but my question is, can i spray paint something that is made out of ceramic or porcelian, it has a dull finish on it, if so is there any prep work to do. I have painted lots of things too, just not too sure of this.
    thanks a million

  5. You forgot to mention that you have used liberal amounts of spray paint and that you have inspired a countless number of people to think outside of the box. Myself included.

  6. you have done some really memorable things. thanks for sharing more of yourself with all of us. when I run out of blogging ideas I am going to use this idea. hope it's ok!
    happy weekend~

  7. gotta know which 2 were jerks, please post! :)

  8. I gotta know who the jerks were too! I just went to my 3rd NKOTB concert with my 2 BFF's from 5th grade! It was amazing!!!!!!!! I screamed like a kid, leaped over chairs and back-talked security...all in the name of LOVE...did I mention I touched Joey??

  9. I ditto the got to know which ones are jerks!!!

  10. Your post made me think of a lot of amazing things I too have done. Just one question...what does a little bit pregnant mean?

  11. You MUST spill the beans about which 2 NKOB members were jerks! It couldn't have been my cute little Joey. When I was 11 I had a dream that we went on a date and it was so real. I woke up so dissapointed!

  12. Wow - what a great list! I can't think of anything great right now. I've been to Sweden...

    Very cool!


  13. ~WOW!
    These are all cool things.

    Is it bad that I'm jealous you were on the set of "Thirteen Going on 30"? I love that movie!

    I can't wait to see the table.
    ~Melissa :)

  14. What a great list! I am so going to do a post like this next week!

  15. LOVE your list!!! :) I have flirted with an Italian man in France. I have started a project with good intentions and then let it fizzle. I have let my now 3 year old watch a LOT of Elmo when her baby sister first came home. ;)

    I started my 100th post Giveaway yesterday!! :)

  16. I'm going to guess Jordan and Danny...but that's just from my experience meeting them several times over the last year!

  17. I guess I"m not the only one that wants to know who the 2 jerks were! LOL Hope it wasn't Jordan or Joe!!

    You have a very interesting list, I enjoyed reading it. I'm soooo glad I wasn't you when you ran a stop sign and hit a cop. Ouch, I bet he was ticked!!

  18. Girl, get that thesis finished!!

    Which of the New Kids were jerks? I gotta know! I hung out with Jordan in a hot tub once (I totally did. True Story.), and he was really nice then.

  19. I just posted my list on my blog.

    And you need to get that thesis done. Can't wait to see the coffee table.

  20. Love your list!! I was laughing to some of least you brought a smile to my face today. I needed something like that. :-)

  21. Wow, that was a great list. My life has been boring compared to yours.
    1. I have been Mickey AND Minnie at Disneyland.
    2. I have been to the top of the Eiffel Tower (wasn't happy about it!)
    3. I have sat on the stand as a witness in a murder trial.
    4. I have been in th Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade.
    That is it for me!

  22. I have been envious before, but this list was great! Sounds like you have a great life! :)

  23. I have....n't done many of the things you have, but I take it the ESP thing didn't happen as you were approaching the stop sign!

  24. Great list! Lots of variety - and funny stuff!

  25. Ooooh, great list! You've done a lot of great things! At first I was confused, b/c I thought you were listing all the stuff you've done in the past YEAR!

    You met 4 of the NKOTB!? Which ones were jerks?? Do tell. I'm thinking about going when they're here in a few months!!

  26. P.S. I didn't know you'd have a miscarriage. So sorry. :(

  27. I spray painted something with inspiration from you.

  28. I am so sad you have lost babies , but I am so glad you have one healthy baby , congrats .

  29. My friend was actually on Wheel of Furtone back in October. Though she didn't win, she did win a trip to Mexico and enough money to pay of some student debt.

  30. If you have been on the set of 13 Going On 30 then you might have met my cousin -- actress, Judy Greer. She was the character who was Jennifer Garner's assistant/friend/back stabber. If you met her, you know she is just as hysterical in real life as she is in the movies - such a natural comedy actress.
    You list is good. I think I need to make one too. Makes one appreciate all the wonderful things life has given.
    Love your blog & thank you soooo much for sharing all your ideas and techniques. Very inspiring.

  31. What a list! I couldn't come up with a list half as interesting as this.

    You were on the set of 13 Going on 30? What were you doing there? Love that movie.
