Bucket List

You know how much I love lists. About a year ago, I stumbled upon Maggie from the Mighty Girl blog and her bucket list. It got me thinking about my life list and what I might include specifically. Last year, Flyboy was away at training in Oklahoma. I was bored one Friday night, so I got out a Moleskine and started jotting down my ideas. I intended to keep my working list to myself, but after I read about Nicole Balch at Making it Lovely who unabashedly made her list public, I thought that was a great idea! Perhaps by sharing this list, I might hold myself accountable to fulfilling these various goals. This list is meant to keep me focused on what I love and what I'd like to achieve. As Nicole stated quite perfectly, it's not meant to make you feel guilty. "It should serve as a compass, opening you up to experiences that you may have discounted otherwise." I expect for this list to change with time. That's the most exciting part! And since this original list was drafted in October 2010, I went ahead and made a few additions. Anything noted in a dark green font has been checked off the list. Here it goes...  
Happy Wednesday, lovelies!
Pin It!


  1. This bucket list is amazing! I have a couple of yours on mine as well.... like seeing Wicked and seeing Garth Brooks live... and others. Good stuff!

  2. Thanks, Ellie! I get so tickled by how much you learn that we all have in common in this little blogosphere. It's kinda funny:) Sometime you should feature your list on your blog. I'd love to read it!!

  3. Umm I love this! I must have started reading your blog after you posted this or I would have been all over it. I have a bucket list and a list of 101 things to do in 1,001 days — kind of a happy medium between lifelong goals and a plain old to do list. I can't wait for more updates on your list — you've got a great start! :)
