So, I've listed fifty things I've done and now you get the other list, the bucket list per say, the more common list... the list of things I still want to accomplish in life. Well, some of them. Actually, I struggled coming up with this list, and yet, I know there are a ton more I could add.

  46. write life story essays

  48. empty my email inbox
  49. take up boxing
  50. think happy thoughts and fly

Any suggestions for how to accomplish some of these things? :) How are you doing with YOUR bucket list?


  1. I think most if not all of these are totally doable. If you go to Australia take me with you!

    1. Jenny: Can you even imagine how much fun we'd have!!!

  2. Ha ha! I love that you put have me successfully teach you how to crochet something. :) We'll do it. We'll get there. I love all your other items. Although, I don't think I could do Australia, irrational fear and all.

    1. Jenni: Fear of what? Flying? Snakes? :)

  3. This is a great list and I think you could be able to complete it if you try. Let me know if you ever make it across to England for the summer - it would be great to meet you!

  4. Ok... Here is the plan! We are going to take up boxing together, again. Lose our 20 pounds with some added Zumba (though the whole food thing, you are on your own). Revamp the wardrobe, so that now we are looking and feeling good. Take that writing cruise over to England, find some pixie dust while we are there. Come back and road trip it across the country hitting all the states we can, visiting John and Hank, follow the Josh Groban Tour until we finally catch a break where he comes out to meet the fans (Though his violinist was cool and all), go to Donny and Marie in Vegas, be in the audience of Ellen, do cosplay and San Diego Comic Con, then hop a flight to New Zealand and Australia for the Shire and Markus and stay in a beach house. Vlog the entire time and watch Supernatural and Buffy at night. BAM 20 items done! Let's DO IT!!!

    1. Megs: Are you saying you have some of the same things on YOUR list? Hmmm?

    2. Only a few, but I can put them on my list.

  5. This was so much fun, and I was so excited that getting published was on the list!!

  6. Take up boxing? You go, girl!
