You've never been to Disney World?!?!?!?! I'm so sad for you. :( I miss our drive-in back home. We didn't really start going until right before SoldierMan left, and it was such fun.

I'm going to do this myself. Looks fun.

You are doing way better than me! I've done things that aren't on this list that I think are something special though, so I'm not exactly jumping to go do this stuff. Is the typhoon coming your way? We are at TCCOR 1 now. Hubby is home and no school for the kids today.

Unknown said...

Awesome! I'll never get to do most of the ones you've done, but I've done 12 that you havn't done. walked to top of statue of liberty, broke a bone, joined book club and skinny dipped are just a few.
Love ya!

There is supposed to be a meteor shower that peaks 13 Dec this year ;). Also, if you ever desire to see that Alamo -we have tons of family and friends down there and can easily arrange that venture! Miss you!!
