I'm kickin' it old skool!

I'm participating in Old School Blogging this month and I'm loving that Allison and Elaine are talking "Five Things," mostly because I LOVE LISTS!!

Five things I have a passion for:
* My family
* My friends
* Writing
* Reading
* Love

Five things I would like to do before I die:
* All the things on this #lifelist!

Okay, I'll be more specific ... though they might be on my initial list, so stay with me ...
* Learn to drive.
* Try ziplining.
* Take my daughter swimming with dolphins.
* Publish something I've written.
* Walk my daughter down the aisle.

Five things I say a lot:
* Can you lower that?
* Hello?
* Okay.
* Please stop.
* Good luck, Charlie. (I'm totally kidding ... I just couldn't think of a fifth thing!)

Oh, wait, how could I forget?


Five books and/or magazines I have read lately:
* Inferno, Dan Brown
* And The Mountains Echoed, Khaled Hosseini
* Homemade With Love, Jennifer Perillo
* The Tao of Martha, Jen Lancaster
* The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Stephen Chbosky

Five Favorite Movies (Maybe you've seen them five times?):
* Dirty Dancing - easily fave and I've seen it WAY MORE than 5x
* Dodgeball
* The Bourne Supremacy
* Annie
* Tangled

Five places I would love to travel to:
* Costa Rica
* Israel
* Barcelona
* Prague
* New Orleans

Five people I invite to do this meme:

I'm not going to do that because I can remember being tagged and OH! THE PRESSURE!

But I'm going to give you four bloggers I think you should head on over to see. Because they rock. And I said so. M'kay? ;)

* Lora from Fever, over at
* Tracie at
* Diane of
* Allison at

And there you have it. Easy peasy.

If you're up for linking up, too, go on over to see Alison at Writing, Wishing or Elaine at The Miss Elaine-ous Life and join them like I did! It's fun. And it's a great way to flashback to things you enjoy and who you are. And did I mention it's fun?


  1. And here I was, just reading along, thinking this is a pretty good list. Maybe I should give it a whirl...

  2. Okay, I had no idea that you don't drive. See why I love these meme? :)

  3. Fun list! I'm also a NY transplant. Looking forward to reading more of your blog.

  4. Oh I didn't realize there was a new one up. Will have to get on this. And yes, if you learned to drive, we could see each other more :-)

    I don't think I ever want to zipline. Everyone I know has either ziplined or wants to but I don't know! But I know more than one person who has ziplined in Costa Rica and LOVED it so that's a twofer on your list right there!
    I think you really *should* say "Good luck, Charlie" more often! :D --Lisa

  6. First - Thank you for including me in your shoutout. This totally made my day.

    Second - I ziplined for the first time back in Februrary, and it was awesome. You will love it.

    Swimming with dolphins is still on my #oneday list.

    Third - "Good luck, Charlie" cracked me up.

  7. You da' bomb. (And NSA - if you are reading this I mean da' bomb as in really cool. We are not terrorists. I swear. I just think Andrea rocks is all.)

  8. Totally LOVE your lists! Found you by way of Sophie's Boo Mama blog. Totally got sucked in my your blog name! LOVE IT! I'm a native North Carolinian wishing to one day transplant myself in New York City. Who knows if that will ever happen. Looking forward to reading more of your posts!

  9. Wait... learn to drive? You don't drive at all?

  10. Okay, why is it that you say "Can you lower that" a lot?

    And yes, come visit New Orleans, it's awesome! :)

  11. I want to visit Israel one day too. You did a great job on your list. :)
