My Bucket List

Have you seen that movie The Bucket List? I haven't...yet. But I have heard of people making bucket lists. You're supposed to write down goals that you want to accomplish, places you want to go, dreams you want to make come true, things that you want to happen before you "kick the bucket". I've been making mine for years mentally, but I never actually sat down and wrote it out. Yesterday I finally sat down and wrote out my list. There were more things on it than I thought! Some of the things that I wrote down seem petty, but you're supposed to write down things that you would like to do if you had unlimited time and money.

At first, I was just going to make this list of things that I thought I would like and just kinda keep it to myself, but I did a little research and found out that you're supposed to share your list with firends and family, and post it in places where you will see it everyday. Apparently, once you make one, you are supposed to strive to actually reach those goals. Makes sense to me!

So for my readers...I am sharing my bucket list with you! (I already posted it on facebook...)

Notice 56 is blank...that is so I can continue to add to my list. I hope that my list will inspire your list. To me, a bucket list gives you a reason to wake up everyday. A reason to strive to reach the silly goals you have in life...like #20 on mine! I've always wanted a purse that costs more than $20 and wasn't bought at Walmart...

I let my hubby read this list last night. Some of the things he laughed at, and some he agreed we could make happen. Later that night, he started talking about things that he was going to put on his list...I was excited! He was making on too! I have a feeling that things are going to get really fun in our household!
