Bucket List

*no, this isn't about the movie. Although it is wonderful!!*

The other day, I was thinking about some things I needed to add to my bucket list. Now, I don't have an actual "list"...just ideas I keep in my head for later. I did start a Bucket List board on Pinterest, but it doesn't have all that much on it. 

I thought I'd share some of the things on my bucket list with you.

In no particular order.....

- Learn to play the guitar.

Well, those are just some of the things on my bucket list. There are SO many more! Seriously, there are entirely too many things I want to do...which is good, I guess?

What things do you hope to do one day?

Happy Wednesday!! It's Duck Dynasty day! QUACK! ;)


  1. LOVE your list! I was excited to see that I have checked off a few of those but that we have similar aspirations! Maybe we can complete some together--especially the travel ones! Oh and you can combine visiting Alaska AND taking a cruise. I hope Forrest and I do that in 2 years!

    1. Ha, yes I would LOVE to complete some together!!! You and Forrest are very well-traveled couple and Joseph and I need to catch up! It'd be a blast to visit some spots together! I've heard Alaskan cruises are the BEST!


Thank you for reading and for taking the time to leave me a comment. I enjoy reading every single one of them!!
