New goals??? You planning on skydiving into the Great Wall of China and breaking a bone? lol, don't do that, k!

Cindy said...

I think she's aiming for "getting fired from a job"

-Melissa- said...

that was fun! There are a lot of things I still need to do. :)


cute blog idea - i didn't realize you had done so many adventurous things in your life already - i gotta get going and try and catch up to you!

Rick said...

Hmmm I've done 49 of them- the rest I have no desire to do.

Katie said...

I'm impressed you hit a home run! That is something that will never be humanly possible for me.

hoLLy said...

"hitting a home run" was a little bit of a stretch. it was more like kicking a homerun. i played kickball as a teenager and got a few homeruns. that counts for me.

cyndi/mom/nana said...

I'm impressed. I admit I had to keep going back to the top to see now what did she say red is for what she did or hasn't done! I'm slow I know. Hmm the neighbor's dog huh let me know how that goes. Interesting list for sure.

Abby said...

Hi Holly. I did go to school with you long ago. My maiden name is Quarnstrom, but now I'm Abby Farley. You have a beautiful family!

jOeY said...

Yeah, she's hit a home run before.

I didn't know you had published a book and started a business. I'm impressed. Are the details of those two things widely known?

Marie Rayner said...

Grat list Holly!!! I have never bungee jumped either and I don't think I am ever gonna! You'd probably hear the screams all the way over there!

hoLLy said...

Joey! You are bad! :)

The book I've published is just a shutterfly book:) Some of these are a little bit of a stretch I admit.

And the business I started wasn't "officially" a business, but Joey and I did have a little photography business when we were first married. He, of course, took the pictures, and I was his assistant. We did a few weddings, family pics and bridal portraits.

Tara D. said...

I had to read Joey's comment more than once, lol. The second time I read it, it did make me think naughty thoughts. :)

Me said...

I think It is pretty cool and cute idea! But a loser you are not! Can't do it all but rack up what can and have fun at it! Come on, I want to see you kill and prepare the animal for eating! And that one about the Dead Sea swimming? I don't think it is a good idea to swim in it maybe just stare and day dream of swimming at the same time.
