me pregnant with my son.

you may have seen my list of things i haven’t done, but here is a list of things i HAVE done!

1. moved across the US to NYC without knowing a single person or having a job.

2. became a mom.

3. swam with dolphins.

4. swam with a sea lion.

5. been a freeze model. yep, i stood in a window of a clothing store and pretended i was a mannequin. all for a measly discount on the clothes. how embarrassing! i was like 16, btw.

6. seen madonna in concert twice.

7. been on a cruise.

8. gotten married.

9. gotten botox.

10. worked for two of wall streets biggest firms.

11. gotten three tattoos.

12. pierced my face (below my lip/above my chin)…what is that even called?

13. flown in a 4 seater plane to las vegas.

14. had such bad turbulence while flying thatΒ  flight attendants were hurt and people were crying and clapping when we landed. another vegas trip. basically the plane dropped like an insane amount in seconds. NOT OK.

15. lived in la (brentwood to be exact).

16. taken someone to small claims court and won.

17. dipped my toe in the seven sacred pools in maui.

18. bought my first home.

    Oh Jenn I love this post and I love this idea. We always say what we haven’t done but never neccesarily sit down and share what we have done! You’ve done so much though, I would be so chuffed with a list like that πŸ˜‰ Your bump shot at the top is gorgeous too, there is just something about womens bumps that make me always smile.

    I love your list! And that piercing is called a labret (lol, I had one too). I’ve won in small claims court too, although the person never ended up paying me.

    Love this from the animals you’ve swam with to the piercings you’ve gotten! Love!

    I did 15 for 16 years and I still miss it. I’m totally jealous of 20 and I’m curious about 9. Did it hurt? More importantly, did it work?! And also, I LOVE that photo!

    Where in Brentwood did you live? I currently live in LA and spend a lot of time in that area-it’s so nice and family friendly! : ) I really really want to swim with dolphins one day!

    What a great list! I love how varied it is – it really shows your personality. I have been to small claims court, but sadly I did not win.

    Visiting from Mama Kat’s…

    Love your list… the freeze modeling takes me back in time. I so did that for a discount at the store too!

    I love this! I think I’m going to do a list like this instead of making a resolution list for 2012. New Year’s resolutions intimidate me to no end, but I can handle a good list of accomplishments for the year prior!
