Easy peasy, right? Well, what are you waiting for? Let’s play!


I watched the Bucket List sometime ago and found myself enjoying it despite the somewhat sad premise. In case you haven't watched the movie, a Bucket List is a list that one would make of all the things they'd like to accomplish before they kicked the bucket so to speak.

It made me really think about the things that I would want to do if I knew I only had so much time left. Then, of course, it made me think... why would I wait until I had a death sentence before I fulfilled this list?

  1. Spend as much time as possible exploring England. I especially would like to visit London, Bath and Brighton. The scenes of so many of Jane Austen's novels.
  2. Take Singing Lessons and sing in front of an audience, at least once.
  3. Take pottery lessons and make as much God awful ugly pottery as I can to leave behind
  4. Go with my entire family to someplace really fun like Disneyland and then visit all the famous family type parks throughout the world and just really have a blast with them.
  5. I'd like to see the pyramids in Egypt.
  6. I'd like to name a star after each one of my children.
  7. Visit Prince Edward Island and the fabled home of Anne of Green Gables.
  8. I'd like to write a novel and have it published.
  9. I'd love to go to a really formal swanky dressed up party, a black tie affair.
  10. I'd love to walk the red carpet just once like the movie stars do... maybe to the Oscars.
Phew #'s 9 and 10 were tough. I'm not a real thrill seeker kind of person so my biggest interests really involves self-improvement and travel, travel, travel. But yes, I really would love to walk that red carpet just once.

What about you? Come and play along. Don't forget to grab the button and link up on Jennifer's
