Lately, I feel like I've been extra happy because of all that I had to look forward to. It's been a big spring: two weddings in the fam, Justin concert, trip to L.A., etc.

Someone told me that while I'm young, it's important to balance two things: saving so that I can enjoy myself when I'm older, but at the same time, spending so that I can enjoy myself right now. Before I get married and have children, I should take advantage of the fun times that are all around me.

So I think I am going to start planning cool adventures every 6 months. Life is all about experiences. I think this fall's will be a weekend trip to NYC to see Rent. When better to go see that musical than when I have friends in NYC to stay with, and when 2 of the original actors are reprising their roles?

Time for a list!

Things I Still Hope To Do in Life:

15. Go to Las Vegas
14. Attend Saturday Night Live taping
13. Attend a really big gala that involves a fancy dress and a date in a tuxedo (one more formal, if you will... or get married)
12. See a musician I really like (instead of one my mother really likes) at the Ryman Auditorium
11. See the Grand Ole Opry
10. See 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee
9. See Wicked
8. Attend a taping of Friends (I guess I should think about crossing this one off, but it was on there for so long that I can't bring myself to.) I came as close to that as I think I ever will.
7. Find the Home Alone house in Winnetka, Ill.
6. Meet President or Mrs. George W. Bush
5. Write satire for something other than my blog
4. Go to Italy
3. Record an album
2. Get married
1. Become a mother

Let me know if you want to finance or get in on any of those tasks (especially #2).
