My First Award

Well, I have received my first award since I started blogging and it came from sweet Melissa at Melissa's Heart and Home. Thank you Melissa for this precious Autumn Friends Award. If y'all haven't visited Melissa yet, check out her blog. She features awesome photos of her beautifully decorated home.

So here are the five things I have always wanted to do in my life:
1) Go shopping in New York City. Although I have shopped most of the major shopping districts of the world--Paris, Milan, Rome, Florence, Rodeo Drive, The French Riviera, El Paseo in Palm Desert, California (The Rodeo Drive of the Desert), Worth Avenue, and all shops in between--I have never been to New York City. I just want to check into a fancy hotel, go shopping, and come back to room service! No shows, no museums--just shopping and eating.
2) Go to the Kentucky Derby. This has been on my list forever. I want to wear a pretty suit, a fabulous hat, and have a mint julep at the Derby.
3) Cross the finish line at a marathon--any marathon, it doesn't matter where. Although I jog in 5k races, I've never had the courage or energy to train for a marathon.
4) Play the piano well--I took piano lessons for years when I was a young girl, but would be very nervous now to try it again.
5) Sing like Celine!
Please check back later today; I'll be posting the photos from the event I attended yesterday!

Love, what you want to do! Sounds fun, and you have been to a lot of places. I just want to go to Colorado, before life ends. I want to visit a sheep farm. We did raise sheep and any farm animal there is to be. Then worked 5 years in south east from DC to Florida to Oklahoma in a 40ft Motor home.Now that was what we were going to do when retire, We've done that, Early! Hope you get chance to go to New York.
