I really had never given much thought to a “Bucket List” (possibly never even heard of it) until I saw the movie “A Walk To Remember” with Mandy Moore & Shane West.  Do you remember that movie?  If you haven’t and your into romantic movies and don’t mind a good cry, you should watch it.

Besides the fact that I was in tears at the end of it all, I had decided that I would also come up with my own list of things I would love to do before I kick the bucket (Hence the name “Bucket List”).  I would often add to my list in my mind but I have decided that I would write it down and make it my goal to do them all.  After all, it is great to have dreams and goals!

So, I gave it some thought and here’s what I have on my Bucket List so far:

  • Make a difference in the world
  • Visit the grave of my uncle in Canada with my family
  • Be in 2 places at once (yes, I got this from the movie)
  • Be in 4 places at once (I totally want to visit the 4 corners)
  • Visit each one of the 50 states (The ones I have already visited are listed below)
  • Family trip to Jerusalem
  • Couples trip to Africa, for an African Safari Adventure
  • Skydiving
  • Take a ride on a hot air balloon ride
  • Go Zip Lining
  • Take a ride in a blimp
  • Take a family cruise to Alaska
  • Experience Hawaii with my husband
  • Visit the Niagara Falls
  • Go whale watching
  • Be in a movie
  • Have a radio or TV show
  • Dance with Ellen DeGeneres
  • Stare at Vin Diesel in person
  • Make “The Rock” Sweat
  • Shadow Casting Crowns for a day and ask them all the questions
  • Hang out with Kevin Hart
  • Play a game with Jimmy Fallon, like one of the ones he does on his TV show
  • Have a conversation with Tiffany Haddish
  • Go Glamping
  • Go swimming with the pigs
  • Swim with the dolphins
  • Swim with the Sting Rays

  • Walk the red carpet like a celebrity
  • Visit as many parts of the world as I can (The ones I have visited are listed below)
