Forty Things To Do Before Forty- Carol Burnett

I interrupt baby week to tell you that I went to see my idol, Carol Burnett last night. She was in LA for the first time, on stage with Tim Conway. They talked and joked, Tim Conway was in rare form. Then they took questions. I scurried to the mic but alas there was no time. They took questions, and then a line longer than two football fields to sign her new book This Time Together. (Mr. bought one signed for me). The book is about her co stars through the years and her life.

So on my Forty Things To Do Before Forty List was to MEET Carol Burnett. I'm afraid it's still on the list. I just have to find a way to get to her. She was gracious and lovely though, everything you'd expect. She has 23 emmys, produced her own show when no one else had, and gives all the credit to her co stars and writers. No wonder I love her.

What's on your Fabulous Forty list? I am giving myself my whole fortieth year to complete my forty! I better get a move on!

How fun! I love Carol Burnett and Tim Conway together. You still have time to meet her.

I never thought to make a 40 things to do list. Maybe I'll make a 45 things to do list... :)

I need to make a list, but 40 things? That's a lot to cover by August. Help me make a list! :) I loved watching the CB show growing up. Vicki Lawrence, CB, TC and other guy (Harvey?) worked so well together. Loved the original Momma skits!

And don't forget #11 a good babysitter so you can have a break and reconnect with hubby during the toddler years. No matter what you pay the sitter per hour plus your $$$ dinner out- it is all worth it. xo, T
