True. I've been tagged for the Seven List going around the blogs (Thanks, Deb!), so without further ado, here's what I came up with:
Seven Things To Do Before I Die
1. Watch my children grow up to become the amazing adults I know they can be.
2. Learn to tango.
3. Reach the NY Times Bestseller List.
4. Take an exotic trip (i.e., an African safari, a tour of the Egyptian pyramids, a beach vacation in Tahiti...)
5. Surprise my family with something wild and expensive.
6. Conquer my fears and weaknesses.
7. Grow old.

5. His passion for everything in life--including me!
6. The way he makes me feel
7. His smile

7. "It's in the cabinet..." or "...on the dresser..." or any number of places. (Always in reply to "Where's the insert item here?")
Now, I'm supposed to tag someone else with this, but since it's been going around for a while and I'm not sure who's seen it and who hasn't, I'll make a deal with you. If you're reading this, haven't done the list yet, and think it might be fun to try, I tag you! Let me know what you come up with.
