39 Things On My Bucket List


Me swimming with dolphins. Though I am completely petrified, I am trying to smile!

In celebration of the one month anniversary of my blog, I would like to share another list of 39 things…This month the list will be about 39 things I would like to accomplish sometime in the near future…


39  Things I’d Like To Experience:


Ride a mechanical bull

Drive cross country

Grunt at the gym while lifting 2 pound weights.

Learn to apply the perfect cat eye with eyeliner

Meditate regularly

Indulge in a guilty pleasure and not feel guilty about it

Visit Kyoto, Japan

Wake up for an occasional sunrise and appreciate its beauty

Be more present in the moment

Pack for vacation in a carry on (This should be in my next list of 39 ways in which to please my husband)


A pms-free month- possible?

Ride the double decker site seeing bus around Manhattan

Run the Tutu and Tiara half marathon and only because I get to wear a tutu and tiara

Become a proficient jump roper (not in a “double dutch” sort of way-more in a “Rocky” sort of way)

Would love to meet Kristen Wiig and Ellen DeGeneres

Say no to the bread basket

Take an acting class

Visit Aspen in the summer

Drive down the coast of California – “Sideways” style

Visit Venice and be serenaded on a gondola ride

Take a historical tour of Boston

Go to DC for the Cherry Blossom Festival (They’re my favorite tree)

Eat less sugar

Speak in public extemporaneously  (without getting two wet circles under both my arms)

Sing songs with the correct lyrics (at least to 1 entire song)

Set up my own lemonade stand (read: for me, not for my kids)

Be an audience participant at the Ellen Degeneres Show

Be more politically savvy

Enter a tango competition

Hike more regularly

Own a piece of work by Alex Katz

Go blonde or don a blonde wig

Stay home ALL day in sweats and watch chick flicks

Eat whatever I wanted for 1 day. It would look like this:

Breakfast: Pancakes with extra syrup

Lunch: Spaghetti with cream sauce and a hint of truffle oil

Dessert: Thin apple tart tartin

Dinner: Hot dog with mustard and sour kraut along side a sandwich of deep fried salami.

See Billy Joel in concert

Make a difference in someones life

Grow a vegetable or an herb garden

Do everything on this list!

I am always looking for inspiration and would love for you to share one of your proud accomplishments or something you hope to experience.

    I would love to run in a marathon! After two spinal surgeries I am working my way back physically, but always wished even before, that I could be a runner! It seems so liberating.

    Fortune, I can help you with 2 things on your list. We can drive down the West Coast “Sideways Style” while learning the lyrics to an entire song. You can wear a blond wig for the ride. That’s 3
