Our challenge: Have you heard of The Bucket List? Well, that's what I want from you! Make a list of things you want to do before you die. It must be at least five items - and you can make it as long as you desire. Photos are optional. And let's hear about some of the wackiest, most bizarre to-do's on your Bucket List!

This is a great challenge. I mean everybody has this list, right? Way to go Tiggerlane.I figure that I will be editing this post for days to come. Every time that I think of something, I am going to add it to the list. Have a great Monday!

lisa marie said...

That's a long list, you better get busy. :) My husband said ride in a hot air balloon too. :)

Mom Chatter said...

What a great list... this is the type of Fun Monday that might just get me participating. I keep meaning to, BUT...

Anyway, I love your whole list so far... and will be checking back again. I think I would put your numbers 1, 2 (the places I've been and the places I've yet to be), 6 (if only I could live that long... that's 45 years from now... keeping fingers crossed for LONG life, too), 8 (I'd like a home by a small lake), 9, 10, 11, 13, 14, 20, 22 (not with Randy though... nothing against him or anything... he seems like a GREAT guy), 25, 26, 28, 30, 32, 33, and some others would be maybes!! Keep up the great list!! :)

Very nice list. There are a few on there that I just may steal and add to my own list. See? You've inspired me!

laurie said...

I love your list. Fun, funny, serious, thought-provoking.

Great job.

Simply Jenn said...

I love your list. Almost all of them are do-able (and legal).

Karmyn R said...

Awesome list! I think you and your husband need to find that crystal clear lake this summer!!!

And hey - smoke at Jim Morrison's grave? I think I'd rather have a shot of whiskey.

MamaGeek said...

You haven't went on a honeymoon??? DAYUM! Great list S.

Faye said...

I believe you can knock off a good number of these because of #10--learn more about everything. I wouldn't worry about our world if there were more people with this goal on their list.

Get high in Amsterdam? Where did that come from??? think it wouldn't be hard to do although I've never been there. .

eclecticblog said...

Celeste said...

What a great list...I think you will be able to achieve quite a few of them.

What a great list. And you cover so many bases with it.

You're going to have a lot of fun working on that!

AnGlOpHiLe FoOtBaLl FaNaTiC said...

I love your list, S! I'm sure you'll get to quite a number of them, very soon.

Sauntering Soul said...

Great list! But maybe you should rethink letting your husband win his first argument. You're on such a good roll....

And I bet your mom knows your right about a lot of stuff. She just doesn't want to admit it.

Jenni said...

Amen to #9. Do you think it is still possible? I want to believe it is.

I love the fact that you said "to be continued" These are ongoing things! Great list - extensive, but doable right?

I loved 41. I've actually done some of these things. I hope I can live long enough to be inspired by a President too.
