  1. I can help with #5. I’ve got a cool little torch and everything. While you’re out here we could all head up to Napa and nock #8 off the list too.

  2. Thanks! I may take you up on that offer. I have one of those torch things too, bought for the purpose of making creme brulee. So far, I’ve only used it to torch marshmallows on cupcakes and sugar on strawberry toast.

  3. We have some very similar list items.

    I say we get together with A and R, each create our top 20 list, find one that will inevitably be on all lists, and just make it happen. Here’s hoping it’s a trip abroud.

  4. I love this idea! I officially want to have Jon and I create these lists! I think I can help you with #50! I make the easiest and cutest (if I might add) elastic waste band pencil skirts!
