I've had a bucket list for years, well before the movie came out. Back then, it was called the Life List. Of course me and everyone else who had one has changed it to the Bucket List since then. Loved the movie...if you haven't seen it, you really should.
So here it is...my 2009 bucket list:
Get back down to my ideal weight, and STAY THERE.
Obtain at least two of my three planned certifications/degrees. (I actually HAVE obtained two…working on the third now!)
Become a published author.
Be financially independent someday.
Collect postcards from all over the world.
Travel to as many places as my health and finances will allow.
Number 7 will require me to get on an airplane, so flying has to be on my list too. (which will require someone to fly with me and hold my hand, no doubt) :-)
Create a fabulous portfolio of photographs, and not let a hurricane destroy them. (Darn you, Katrina)
Learn to draw.
Qualify to be a foster or adoptive mom.
Continue and increase my charity and volunteer work.
Tour the Food Network Studios in New York.
Go to Disney World and Universal Studios.
Go to Mall of America in Minnesota.
Invest in Real Estate (or an RV…it’s a coin toss at this point).
Learn to sew with a sewing machine, and make pillows and blankets for charity.
Go to a spa, and let them pamper me like I've never been pampered before.
Have a booth at an Arts & Crafts Festival. (WOW…I can cross this one off my list!)
Learn how to DJ and do at least one show.
Learn to play a musical instrument.
Visit the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse.
See real snow, and play in it.
Ride on the back of a Harley Davidson (just a couple times around the block would be sufficient, thank you) :-)
Kidnap my brother Layton and attend an Alabama Crimson Tide game at Bryant-Denny Stadium.
(EDIT NOTE: Bucket list is updated annually. You can now find my current bucket list on Pinterest. I update it regularly. "Travel" and "people I want to meet" bucket lists are separate. I'll share those lists eventually.)
