The bucket....

Have you ever written a bucket list? I was over on and saw her list of things she wants to do.  I was inspired to write a new one.  I wrote one years ago and have actually managed to do a lot of the stuff on it.  I am going to spend some time this month coming up with a new one and writing down what I have done from the old one.

Some things I will add to it are:

  • sky dive
  • bungee jump
  • go to New York and take a horse and carriage ride through central park
  • watch a birth/delivery.  Not being able to have kids has made me desire to see it happen.
  • buy sexy boots! 
  • spend a month living on a beach somewhere
  • walk part of the great wall in China
  • wear a bikini
  • publish a cookbook.  Even just for my friends and family
  • make a difference in someones life
  • be successful in my business
  • own an old character home 
  • successfully grow my own veggies
  • take a completely spontaneous trip.  No planning at all.  Book the tickets and everything no more than 72 hours in advance.
  • do a road trip based on where the radio takes us! (a scene from an old Drew Barrymore movie.  Country is left, rock is right...that sort of thing)
  • get hair extensions
  • food tour of Texas
  • learn to sew
  • learn to arrange flowers
  • take cooking classes
  • take my whole family on a vacation
  • own a whole kitchen of Le Creuset pots and pans
  • laugh more often
  • take singing lessons
  • own a Porsche
I know.  Silly list.  But these are some things I want to do! I know a lot of them are material items, but who cares? I will do them one day I hope.  Some things that I have already done and have crossed off my list are:
  • see Bon Jovi in concert
  • go to a Broadway play
  • go to the Atlantis Paradise Resort
  • drive an Austin Mini
  • own a home
  • get married
  • have a red car
  • travel to Europe
  • have a Mohawk
  • pierce my nose
  • cook a different meal every day of the week for one month
Please note I only did a faux hawk.  I have to work! And see the nose ring? 

This is a picture from last December.  Wow.  I look different now! Loving the hair color though!

The list could go on and on.  These are a few.  What are some of your items? Are they all physical? Emotional? Mental? Material?

Hey! I want to skydive too! I mentioned it to the husband and he looked at me like I was insane. But I can't get it out of my brain now, it's just something I want to say I've done. I'd also like to vacation in the Keys and in Bora Bora in an overwater hut, and vacation in greece. Apparently my life list involves a lot of vacationing.

That is awesome! I actually have a whole separate list of places I want to travel. My husband said it was too long to have it as part of my main list! I will have to post that too :)

Hmmm..a separate travelling bucket list. I like that idea :)
