Bucket List

I would say about 10 years ago I made a bucket list and I could kick myself that I can't find it now. 

I did do one thing I KNOW off that bucket list.  Actually, marrying Josh and having Oliver makes two and three things I did!

So, I decided over the weekend that I wanted to write a new one and hopefully I can make good on promises to myself and get these checked off.  I will say, my list is going to consist of many places I want to see in the world. In no particular order:

1.  Travel to Australia 
2.  See a baby being born (not my own...Aunt JCC...hint, hint!!)
3.  Drive cross country
4.  Learn a foreign language
5.  Have 3 children
6.  Scuba dive with sharks
7.  Touch the Wailing Wall
8.  See the Eiffel Tower in person
9.  Go to the BCS National Championship Game
10.  Learn to sew
11.  Take a cooking class
12.  Spend a week in Bora Bora with no cell phone, computer or television
13.  Travel to Africa
14.  Be able to provide a substantial financial contribution to an animal shelter that can make a difference
15.  Watch Josh walk across the stage getting his Bachelor's Degree
16. Live on a farm (close to a big city though!)
17.  Try scallops (I have to get up the courage for this one because I hate seafood)
18.  Lose 100 pounds
19.  Own a Mercedes
20.  See Niagara Falls
21.  Spend New Year's Eve in New York City
22.  Go to Mardi Gras
23.  Go to Carnival
24.  Hear Mass at St. Peter's Square
25.  Ride in a gondola in Venice
26.  See a funeral in India
27.  Travel first class
28. Milk a cow
29.  Run a marathon
30.  Run with the bulls
31.  Go whale watching
32.  Officiate a wedding (again, I'm looking at you JCC)
33.  Read the Bible from cover to cover
34.  Learn to surf

My life is in such a different place than it was even two years ago so I am going to work towards making all these dreams come true.  How about y'all?  Do you have any things you'd love to do for yourselves?

  1. I love your bucket list. Find me someone fantastic for #32 and we might be able to make #2 happen. For my bucket list, I would like to piggy back and help you accomplish as many as I can.
