Bucket List


Last night I was laying around thinking that I ought to take a minute to write down my "bucket list". It isn't because I'm feeling like my time is any more limited, or because I'm "wishing for greener pastures", I'm just a firm believer that the first step to seeing dreams and goals realized is to write them down. So here it is.
Before I die (or get too old) I want to:
-visit a crayon factory.
-ride in a hot air balloon
- Attend all major sporting events: Super Bowl, World Series, NBA finals, World Cup, Olympic games (check), U.S. Open, Kentucky Derby, etc.
- When and if I get to attend the Kentucky Derby, I want to wear a gigantic hat.
- Eat at each of the Iron Chef's restaurants
-Be in the audience for an episode of Iron chef America (this, I hear, is not possible since only friends and family of the chef's are allowed in the audience, but nothing is EVER impossible, right?)
-Get a nursing degree
-Go to Greece
-Read the Old Testament
-Be completely debt free
-Take my parents on a trip
-Take Kimball's parents on a trip
-Own a scrapbook retreat business (with my dear friend Kathy!)
-Go on a mission with Kimball
-Raise successful well-rounded, kind, loving, humble, smart children

Some may happen, some may not, I hate to think it, but maybe none of them will happen, but even so its good to know I'll always have support from those that love me!

we ate at Mesa Grill last weekend, and it was seriously the best food ever. I want to be an iron chef judge now :) Good list.

I have always wanted to go to a Crayon Factory...I have public television to thank for that. I have also always wanted to go to Greece...someday. Great listing. I've been meaning to do this do...we'll see.

I have been to a Crayola Factory in PA. It was neat!

No to the hot air balloon, I am afraid of heights (yes I am a baby)

You will look amazingly gorgeous in that gigantic hat at the derby!

I have read the Old Testament (just cause I taught it in seminary & from my mission)

Yes I want to be debt free, oh that day will be so great!

I remember making the plans for our scrapbooking retreat business in the parking lot of walmart.

I want to go on a mission with Steve too.

Wow what a great list. I might just have to make one of my own!

You really will be surprised by Greece. It's too nasty both physically and morally. Probably the Greek Islands are a better choice. My heart was broken with what I saw when we were there. Never want to go back--just to the Islands. Going to Greece was always a dream of mine.
