Here we go.  The original list.  And the results.  I think I'd give myself a B-... 

1. Bake a homemade triple layer cake. YES! Three lemon layers with lemon icing.

2. Drink a shot of espresso. YES! Okay, I managed three good sips.  But, Jarod was still proud.

3. Watch the Opening Ceremonies of the Summer Olympics. YES!  I had them DVR-ed, so I watched a few days late.  But it happened.

4. Bike the Frisco Highline Trail - 70 miles. No :(

6. Enjoy a candle lit dinner with the Hubs. No :(  Hopefully this happens soon, seriously.

7. Read "Emma" by Jane Austen. Yes.  Sort of.  I bought the book, and am still reading it.. not yet finished.

8. Watch the movie "Jaws". Yes!! I really liked it... except that ending scene of man vs. fish got a little long.

14. Make mango salsa. Yup!

15. Write a love poem. No.. wrote a love letter.. does that count?

17. Take Charlie Ann and Jarod to the farm (my grandparents old house). No :(

18. Paint a live park scene on sight. No.

19. Throw change in a fountain. No! So easy... was even driving by that big fountain in Chicago and told Jarod we needed stop for such this occasion, but then we got distracted by an air show and looking for parking.  Shame.
