Bucket List Update

I think it's important to take stock of where you are at certain times in your life...the good, the bad, the medicore.  Instead of worrying about all the things you don't have or didn't do or didn't get to see, I thought today I would reflect on all the great stuff that I've been blessed with.

Yup. Got a brand spanking new camera for Christmas. 
Hubby and I cruised to Puerto Rico, St. Thomas and St. Martin.
I am and always will be a daddy's girl. No question.
I love Central Park any time of the year but it is definately magical in the snow!
Pulled an all-nighter at the Senor Frogs in Cancun!
Swam with the dolphins in Cabo. Cosmo wouldn't have anything to do with 'em.
I was blessed with not just one, but TWO beautiful daughters!
Stood atop the Eiffel Tower with Daughter #1; quite an accomplishment since I'm not a big fan of heights!
Loved going to the drive-in when I was little! Always went in my pajamas in case I fell asleep during the ride home.
Sweetest place on Earth and home to some of my favorite rollercoasters.
I've been fortunate to have a dad and assorted uncles who have taught me to how to shoot, how to throw and catch a baseball and basically hold my own and still be feminine. 
One of my favorite all-time cities.  I would LOVE to go back to London!!!
Check (and I'd do it again!). 
There is nothing like Christmas in NY! The hustle, the bustle, the tree, the skaters, the store displays on 5th avenue, The Rockettes!
Cosmo & I took the girls for a carriage ride in Atlanta and had so much fun!
Yeah. I smoked a cigar. I was at a bar with a bunch of co-workers before a Cincinnati Reds game. It was disgusting and I'll never do it again.
Love London. I could live there.
Threw a coin in the fountain; so beautiful!
From what I've been told, my 40th b-day in Vegas was GREAT!!!

I'm actually headed to London for the first time TOMORROW! It's for work, so I don't have a TON of time to do things, but if I have to pick TWO things to do, what should they be?

Depends what you like to do! Westminster Abbey is really cool if you're a history buff. The Tower of London is neat too and you can get some great photos of the bridge. The London Eye will give you a good overview of the city. Harrods is fun to walk around and so is Fortnum & Mason if you want to bring home some tea for friends. Wow! You're going to have such a great trip and you're going during a wonderful time: Queen's Jubilee, Olympics, etc.

Hey! I'm Christine, a new follower as of about five minutes ago. I love your blog! This post is great. I have so many things that I want to accomplish but there have definitely been some things that I can cross off. Thanks for sharing!
