Mom To Six said...

So cool to learn more about you!!


Rachel @ Unexpected Blessings said...

You are so lucky never to have bounced a check! I wish I could say that!

You have got to do some great things in your life! I hope that some day I can say I have been to all the places you have been!

Mocha with Linda said...

Wow! I am impressed with all the things in bold! Loved learning more about you.

Sara@ Butterville said...

What a great idea.
A few things I've done that weren't in bold. Eaten Caviar and held a lamb and flown in a helicopter. Things I WISH I could bold: Been to France and all things french that you bolded. Seen things in Italy. I am drueling with envy. Some some some day... And I never want to hold a preying Manthis. Yicky. Bugs!

Esthermay said...

NO home run? I'm so sorry. Guess it's okay though since you've NEVER BOUNCED A CHECK?!! How did you make it through college?
How fun was it to BOLD the Venice one?
I like reading these. Just don't feel like doin' it myself.

Jules from "The Roost" said...

MY gosh what a great list!!! I will have to think on that one but what a great thing ....to think about the things we have done instead of haven't! :)

Smilingsal said...

I've done quite a few of the same things you've done!

Jamie @ Purposeful Pursuit said...

WOW, you've done a lot! You seem to be well travelled, even have visited Africa...I'm a bit jealous. This was a fun read.

Jackie @ Our Moments Our Memories said...

Look at all the places you've been - amazing. I love memes too, for those times when I can't come up with anything. I might have to pull this out and do it myself soon.

Christine said...

This was FUN!! I'm afraid my list wouldn't be nearly as bold as yours! I have to know, though - what movie were you in?

2nd Cup of Coffee said...

Cracking up. You went to Venice just to be able to answer the gondola question in the affirmative! I knew it!
