Bucket List

Sometime in my senior year the movie The Bucket List was released. I have never seen the movie, I've heard it's good but I've just never rented it.

PS: Maybe if you all are lucky, I will do some post about a few of the things that I've done.


  1. We share #9 in common! I did #47 a few years back, and it was a totally amazing experience.

    1. Awesome! I've been waiting a very long time to be able to travel and have a vacation...I've kind of forgotten what a vacation really is.

  2. I love this!
    Rob fed me seedless grapes while I was struggling with breastfeeding Katherine... because it made me laugh instead of feeling sorry for myself and crying... and I have to say it was quite a highlight of my life. ;)
    Buying some cows? I think we need to know more about this life goal... haha! :)

    1. I grew up on a pig farm and only occasionally did we have cows, I like cows they are on my Top 5 list of favorite animals. It's a dream of mine, some day when I graduate and have a "real job", to buy lots and lots of land and have lots and lots of cows. It's okay I'm a freak I know this not a big deal.

  3. Great idea. I'm inspired to write my own bucket list now!

    1. Yay, I inspired someone!
