  1. Being in Vegas you'll be able to cross a few of these off already. My favourites are 69 and the latter just in case he doesn't like the former? Ha!

  2. Love this T! What a great list! I see shooting stars about once a week - when I wake up in the middle of the night I often see them! You just sleep too well!

    You have inspired me to get going!!!

  3. i must do this. can I volunteer for 11 or 92?

    1. i meant 91, unless the first item on my list is "change my name"

  4. 102 things for me as the first is make the list.

    1. I put it as #1. I now have one thing checked off.

  5. So exciting! I am too chicken to ever try riding a motorcycle. :) Love your list - you are going to have so much fun!

    1. I have always thought they were death machines but I figured I needed to at least go for one spin.

  6. This list is amazing! I love it! Are you going to update us as you cross things off? I would copy many of these things, take a pottery class for example. And the mall massage guy! I had a bad-ass boyfriend with a motorcycle when I was a teenager so done that. Also skinny-dipping, believe it or not one of my favourite things to do.

    1. Saucy thing you are. I will try to update'll keep me honest. It will help me to "smell the roses" instead of having time fly by and asking what the hell I did.

  7. You pup looks tired already ;) Great list, I can help with quite a few so if your travel on a whim takes you to SoCal, let me know. ;) Oh and we used to do a trip to Napa Valley every year, I can give some pointers to help ensure that visit is fabulous.

    1. She's not sure if she's ready for all this adventure. I definitely will need help with Napa. We are looking at going next fall if all goes as planned.

  8. I love your list!
    So many things I'd love to do too, but many of them not feasible at this stage of my life. I might try 51 things in 501 days.
    The first would be to get oven cleaned.... Oh the glamour

    1. I know, I really got to clean my windows, and my garage, shit...forgot about the oven.

  9. Most of your list looks really doable and fun - well maybe not 34 and 89! Unfortunately I excel at 42. Have a great weekend getaway and enjoy planning 3.

    1. 34 and 89 I had to put on the list. That way maybe they would get done before I turned 50. I am very much a morning person so #42 will be tough...even when we are in Vegas. #3 we we're suppose to go for 20th but I got screwed, no one to watch kids. Now I won't have that problem.
