Hey woman . . . . no suggestions for your list but I can tell you Adam Levine is 'hot hot as a tater tot' in concert. I took my kid in the Spring in Calgary and it was worth every penny!

Hot air Balloon ride. At least it's on my bucket list. :-)

Hmmmm....

Have you been to NJ? If not, you should come and we'll do a knife skills class with my neighbor the chef. I also have some ins at the Kirtland Temple if you need to get to Ohio.

Ideas -
1. Some kind of craftwork (needlepoint/quilt/crosstitch) that has family history/meaning.
2. Write your memoir
3. Learn a new language (programming languages count)
