Bucket list-ing.

So, here's the thing. My wonderful husband has been taking a class on The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, and in that class he had to write a bucket list of 50 things. Yes, 5-0. So, since my life lately has primarily consisted of frustration and has been lacking in inspiration, I've decided to take a page out of his book (get it? Because his class is on a book) and finally make my own bucket list. I've had a lot of ideas in my mind for a very long time, but I'm finally going to write them down. Partially, because I'm avoiding the homework that I hate and don't want to do, which is ironic since this blog post is technically homework. Ugh. So, here it is.

***Note: I am not including any family or spiritual goals. Not because I don't have them, but because I don't think they really qualify as bucket list-y things. ***

Ok, so that may be more than 50, but once you start, it's hard to stop. There are so many more places I want to go, and things to see and do. But for now, I think this is a good list to start with. 

Also, Brayden saw me working on this, and finally actually started working on his own bucket list on his new blog. Am I inspirational or what?
