Lizzie’s Wild Ride

I know it’s totally cliche but as I’m watching this show on Mtv called the Buried Life based on the book 1,000 Things to do Before you die, so I feel compelled to list what I’ve accomplished so far. You know, to feel better about myself!

1. Attended a Björk concert in a foreign country *Paris June 2003*

Every show I’ve been to my camera has failed me, that blue dot is Björk!
My BFF Aimee and me right before the show * so far I’ve seen Björk live 5 times*

2. Been on television *I won the Showcase Showdown on the Price is Right 1997 and a game show called Cram 2002*

Dude, I know…my hair and fake nails are MEGA EMBARRASSING!! It was the 90’s…right?
I won a trip to Venice, Italy *my husband and mine first vacation together*

Luckily no birds pooped on me

3. Attended a live taping of Late Night with Conan O’Brien in New York

Also attended a live taping of Conan in Los Angeles *
Antz made my I’m With Coco shirt
4. Been on to the top of the Empire State Building *actually, we got engaged at the top of the Empire State Building on December 26, 2000* Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame, Eiffel Tower, *I wrote our names on the Eiffel Tower in 2003* Tower of London and Buckingham Palace
On top of the Eiffel Tower

6. Rescued a cat from an Animal Shelter *my Lola in 2007*

 

7. Sat front row at a Broadway play in New York *Rent 12/2000*

8. Flown first class internationally *Virgin Airlines from LA to London in 2003, it was lovely*

Oh man, how will I ever fly coach again?!

9. Snuck into Björk’s after-party and spoke to/danced with Björk!!! *San Jose 2007*

My camera hates me!
If you look real closely, you can see Antz in his gray hoodie *at the 0:07 second mark*
