Bucket List

I could have kicked myself in the butt when I didn't make a bucket list in London and there are still things I wanted to accomplish but didn't make the time to do so. A year seems like such a long time, but day by day adds up and the time disappears like sand in an hour glass. So in my efforts, I've begun a list of things I want to accomplish in my time in DC (however long it may be)...here goes!

Life's Pink Bucket List:

  • Georgetown Cupcake
  • Eat at Old Ebbitt Grille (oldest restaurant in DC)
  • Visit the UK Embassy
  • Arlington Cemetery for Memorial Day
  • Washington Nationals game
  • EU Open House Day
  • Catch an outdoor 90s movie in Rosslyn
  • Gravely point park to watch the planes go by
  • Jazz in the Garden
  • National Half Marathon
  • Volunteer at Walter Reed
  • DC United game
  • Army 10K
  • Newseum
  • Capitals game
  • Take the Bell Tower tour at the Old Post Office Pavillion
  • Eastern Market
  • See a Free for All Shakespeare play
  • National Cathedral and take a Gargoyle Tour
  • Zoo
  • Kayak down the Potomac
  • Go down to Mount Vernon to see George Washington's estate
  • See a Christmas Carol at Ford's Theatre
  • Watch a movie on Screen on the Green
  • Ben’s Chili Bowl
  • Catch a show at the 930 club
  • Caribbean festival
  • Watch the Rolling Thunder motorcycles for Memorial Day
  • Cherry Blossom Festival
  • Marine Corps Half Marathon
  • DC Drag Queen Race
  • Meridian Hill Park on Sundays to hear the famous drum circle
  • Bureau of Engraving and Printing
  • Go to the top of the Washington Monument

This list is just a starter and more will be added as I hear more things to do :) If you have any ideas, let me know!

p.s. I tried to tame down my page's background color and I'm not in love with it but I tried to save your eyes...you're welcome.
