Give it a try. Really! Please consider joining us via the linky below - we'd love to learn more about you.


  1. Great list, Andrea!! So many goodies here, but my absolute favorite is "Changed someone's life". That is definitely something to be proud of.

  2. Hot damn I love this!! It's a total celebration of you!! How awesome to see so many accomplishments and adventures right there on the page. So often I forget some of the cool stuff I've actually done. I lived on an uninhabited island with no electricity or running water for 4 months doing zoological research in college. Lemurs used to poop in my tent. How many people can say that?

    I should make a list like this to combat the times when I feel puny!

  3. Love this! And I am so jealous that you had an all day spa experience!! That must have been pretty relaxing! :)

  4. What a great idea for a blog post! And WOW you have done so many amazing things, this makes me want to whip out my bucket list and start doing stuff already.

    Following you now! Found you on the SITS forums :)

  5. Fantastic list! We've got a lot in common. (Except the singing. Eek!)

  6. i love this! what a fantastic idea. i will have to come up with my list and link up. :)

  7. Fantastic list! I'm adding parasailing to my to-do list now! :-)

  8. I saw this link-up first on Robin at Farewell Stranger's blog and I love it!
    Working on my own right now:)

    I've been to a lot of places you have been as well (I am from Germany), but parasailing would scare the crap out of me...

  9. So glad I stumbled upon this. It's such a great exercise. Thank you. We should sing together sometime. ;)

  10. you've done some fabulous, adventurous things. Love this list!!
