13.  Taught a college course.

14.  Ridden in a horse-drawn carriage.

How many of these things have YOU done??


  1. I enjoyed your list. Let's see, I haven't taken a cruise yet (but would love to!) or played slot machines, taught a college course or watched a cow being born. And you're only 29? Wow!

  2. Excellent list! I haven't done a lot of those things and I'm 40. But I know I have my own interesting list.

  3. I did a study abroad for three months in London when I was 19, and LOVED it. I would love to go back there with my husband.

    I also really, really want to go on a cruise someday!

  4. i so want to go to europe! i feel like i've worked for many employers, too. i can't count them all ;)

    this was so fun to read!

  5. I should do this...

    I would love you to do a post on cruises - why you love them so much, what to beware of, etc.

    DO you think they're appropriate for our babies?

  6. ps no 9 is my favourite :) and 15 & 16

  7. Great list! What college course did you teach??

  8. #3 for me it has been 6 in total and 2 were Honda Civics (but I have a love-hate with cars - they just eat big chunks off my pay every month)
