8. Take a trip across the Napa and visit vineyards.

9. Sit front and center and watch Federer play

11. Shop on Rodeo Dr. (limitless $$ would make this experience more pleasurable)

13. Get my weight to 105 ( I only weighed 112 when I gave birth!!) so technically I should be about to have a baby:)

  1. Beautiful list Ms. Flip Flop.

  2. Love it! I would love to learn how to smock. You should do a tutorial!!! :)

  3. It's very hard to come up with a reasonable list. I've been keeping a list, short as it is, for years and it can be quite discouraging if you really pay attention to it. There's just so many others to take into consideration when you try to make something happen.
    I love you, you know that. You make me smile.

  4. Great list.. and what a fabulous idea.. may have to borrow it!!

    Yes, someone else who is not crazy about onions!! I don't think I would likingthem to my list..LOL... Happy week-end..HHL

  5. Love it! I've tried a few times to start a bucket list but seem to just sit and stare instead of actually making the list. This inspires me to start working on mine!

  6. I agree with Preppy Princess... i'm inspired to start my own list! Because a lot of your to-dos are some of the things that I want to do, too! Especially NYC at Christmastime... i want to shop, drink coffee, walk, take pictures, and go ice skating at the Rockefeller Center! :D

  7. Wonderful list! We honeymooned on Isla Mujeres...the best!!


  8. I completely agree with the part about retiring. I haven't even started my career yet (still in nursing school) but I'm thinking that enough is enough. I need to lounge on some hot sunny beaches now...

  9. I love...

    -The fact that you have a bucket list!
    -Your header and the fact you didn't forget to include the wine (I'm a wanna be vino)!
    -That I'm a new follower of yours!
