Bucket List

bucket list

It’s all the rage. Everyone seems to have them these days. Its time I jump on the band wagon and make mine. Of course, I’m talking about a bucket list. If you’re not sure what a bucket list is, here’s the definition from The Urban Dictionary:

A list of things to do before you die. Comes from the term “kicked the bucket”.

Here, in no particular order, is my bucket list:

There’s my bucket list (as of today.) Who knows what it will look like one, five or ten years from now. I just hope I don’t decide to add more to it. It’s a pretty tall order as it stands. Bucket lists are very in. Have you started yours?

  1. 1. Have an entire day not feeling like the bucket kicked me.

    (I like the one with the llama. Why is there no llama emoji?)

    1. LOL

      There should be a llama emoji. I’ve wanted to go llama packing since I was in my early 20’s when I use to frequently backpack. You can take more items along and go further difference. It’s pretty high on the list.

  2. I absoluted LOVED this post – it’s sooooo cute & creative & inspiring and worthy!
    It made me laugh and I feel like shit with this walking pneumonia, so that’s a big deal.
    The pictures and the items are perfect. There’s only one thing missing:

    Become Spokesperson for Weight Watchers & Lose It!
    here’s your application for the Lose It! Success Story! You’re going to be one…..


    1. I don’t know about a spokesperson, but I did forget to put down my weight loss goal and that was one of the first ones I thought of.

  3. I have one and I put the most far fetched plans on it….one never knows. My largest one is to go on a photo safari in Africa. However, getting rid of the flying phobia has to be conquered first.

    1. A photo safari was one of my contenders, but didn’t make the final cut. It would be fun.

    1. I agree it is a nice mix. While I may swap some out with time, I have no plans to make this extensive list any longer.

  4. Seriously, when I saw the COPS thing, I was like “OMG, he wants to get arrested on TV!” then read the caption 😀

    I made a bucket list for when I turned 30, but the only thing I did was get a tattoo. If I were to make one now, I’d definitely add a lot of yours, plus add a tour of Europe and play softball again (even if it’s just a church team).

    1. LOL. No, no desire to be arrested at this point. Maybe someday if I get bored. Really bored.
