  2. Your list looks great – I love the camping and girls trip, those are always so much fun. Grape stomping sounds interesting too – and messy! =) And now I’m totally wishing I added a book signing to my list. How lame is it that I’ve never been to one? Good luck with your list, I’ll keep checking in.

  5. This is a really interesting list. It’s giving me some ideas for my list.

    I’m guessing you don’t live in the UK if you don’t know how to tie a tie, because we all have them as part of our school uniforms when we’re kids! Although the association with school has now spoiled any potential romance of wearing a tie for me! 🙂
