Bucket List Item #18: See the Beauty in Ground Zero

With the 15th anniversary of 9/11 coming up this weekend, I thought it was appropriate to make everyone understand that despite how tragic that was for our country, NYC has done an amazing job honoring those involved in the most positive, beautiful way possible. Here is a timeline of how I have experienced the rebuild…

Bucket List Item #15: Go Behind The Scenes!

100% easier said than done, I get that. BUT, if it’s ever possible, do it. This past weekend, I had the opportunity to be backstage during a Barbra Streisand concert (also referred to *by me* as Barb). For those of you who are flipping over that, you’re probably 40+. No judgement, but the absolute truth…

Bucket List Item #14: Run for Fun

So to start this off as honest as possible, I despise running. And when I say despise, I mean I truly do not enjoy running and cringe every time I think about it. Then why do I tell you to “run for fun” you ask? Because I found the only way that I consider running…

Bucket List Item #13: Attend a Music Festival!

I think we can all agree that everyone loves music. If you don’t, I’m concerned for your well-being. But, some people love music more than others… and I happen to be one of those people. I like every genre of music, from every era, performed by artists from all age ranges and genders. In case…

Bucket List Item #11: Pick a City and GO

No, I don’t mean drop a bunch of money and go somewhere exotic. In the wise words of Sweet Brown, “Ain’t nobody got time (or money) for that!” What I mean is to pick a city that you’ve heard about, passed through, or had the chance to go to many times, but never really took…

Bucket List Item #10: Summer X Games!

In honor of today starting the Summer X Games in Austin, Texas, I thought I’d write about my bucket list experience at the Summer X Games. No, I’m not there right now, and unfortunately it’s the last one in Austin (tear), but I did make out there when it was in LA and I LOVED…

Bucket List Item #8: Talk Derby to Me

It’s been awhile! But that’s a good thing in bucket list land because that means I’ve been keeping busy. 🙂 As some of you know from seeing my pictures, I was working the Kentucky Oaks and Derby races earlier this month, and I HIGHLY recommend adding the Derby to your bucket list. A few years…

Bucket List Item #7: March Madness

Queue *It’s the MOST wonderful time of the yeeeeear* For some of you, March Madness means absolutely nothing other than possibly an aggressive arrival of spring. But to the majority of us (I mean, of YOU), March Madness is the most exciting time of year – several weeks of non-stop college basketball. For those of…

Bucket List Item #5: Hit Up a Museum

I know, I know. Unfortunately, museums have a reputation of being boring and/or snooty, especially in what I like to call our “SQUIRREL! Era” (in other words, our generation with extremely small attention spans and lack of interest in anything that moves slowly). Museums also get a bad rap for the confusion factor, especially in…

Bucket List Item #4: Stop Asking for THINGS

Yes, you read it right, and yes, it can seem a little ridiculous for a bucket list, but I promise you it will make sense. You can thank me later 😉 This week’s item seemed appropriate with Valentine’s Day approaching this weekend. Some of you may despise the Hallmark holiday, while others may expect to…

Bucket List Item #3: Have A Snow Day

This time of year gives all of us some mixed feelings with the mixed weather conditions. Obviously it varies depending on where you live, but most people have a love-hate relationship when the snow and crappy weather comes on strong and you get a little stir crazy (or what I like to call seasonal depression…

Bucket List Item #2: Just Dance

To everyone who knows me and read the title, you’re probably not surprised at all, nor should you be. I am the person who danced as a child and an adult, in the car and in the club, to music and shamelessly to nothing but the music playing in my head. I truly believe that…
