Been there, done that... Part Une

Saw this post on another girl's blog & thought it looked fun! Here's how it works - bold what you've done, italicize what you kind of did, leave the things you didn't do alone...

Simple right? Play along if you care to!

1. Started your own blog
2. Slept under the stars
3. Played in a band - does High School band count??
4. Visited Hawaii
5. Watched a meteor shower
6. Given more than you can afford to charity:
7. Been to Disneyland
8. Climbed a mountain: Heck yes! During my fabulous summer in Steamboat Springs, I did this multiple times. I miss Steamboat. :(
9. Held a praying mantis
10. Sang a solo: many times during high school... and I forgot the words during a competition once. Awkward!!!!
11. Bungee jumped: Did this in NZ - those who know me know this is WAY out of character for me (I'm risk averse) so I have VHS of it & pictures to prove it!
12. Visited Paris
13. Watched a lightning storm at sea
14. Taught yourself an art from scratch: Does knitting count?
15. Adopted a child
16. Had food poisoning
17. Walked to the top of the Statue of Liberty
18. Grown your own vegetables
19. Seen the Mona Lisa in France: I skipped this... The Louvre is way too overwhelming for me!
20. Slept on an overnight train
21. Had a pillow fight
22. Hitch hiked
23. Taken a sick day when you're not ill: Had stayed home when I probably wasn't quite sick enough to warrant a sick day...
24. Held a lamb
26. Gone skinny dipping
27. Run a Marathon: 2006 Twin Cities Marathon!
28. Ridden in a gondola in Venice
29. Seen a total eclipse
30. Watched a sunrise or sunset
31. Hit a home run
32. Been on a cruise
33. Seen Niagara Falls in person
34. Visited the birthplace of your ancestors: Sort of, visited Germany but not other areas of ancestry like Scotland or Sweden. Someday...
35. Seen an Amish community
36. Taught yourself a new language: Learned some French on my own
37. Had enough money to be truly satisfied
38. Seen the Leaning Tower of Pisa in person
39. Gone rock climbing
40. Seen Michelangelo's David
41. Sung karaoke
42. Seen Old Faithful geyser erupt
43. Bought a stranger a meal at a restaurant
44. Visited Africa
45. Walked on a beach by moonlight: Did this in the DR w/ Ali & some of her Peace Corp friends!
46. Been transported in an ambulance
47. Had your portrait painted
48. Gone deep sea fishing
49. Seen the Sistine Chapel in person
50. Been to the top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris: I skipped this! The line was so long & I had already been to the top of the Notre Dame & Arc de Triomphe. How many times can a person look at the skyline of a city??

* wow, there sure are A LOT of things I haven't done!

Stay tuned for part deux
