Fun Monday -The Bucket List

Tiggerlane is our hostess: She says: have you heard of The Bucket List? Well, that's what I want from you! Make a list of things you want to do before you die. It must be at least five items - and you can make it as long as you desire. Photos are optional. And let's hear about some of the wackiest, most bizarre to-do's on your Bucket List!

I'll have to start out saying that I've done a lot of the things that I wanted to do when I first started out. I wanted to go to college, I wanted to get married to the love of my life. Those things really count. At this point in time, I feel pretty complete, but I'm sure my bucket list will grow and change over the years.

1. Pull a slot machine lever.
2. Fly on an airplane.
3. Vacation in the sun.
4. Re-visit Niagara Falls, with spouse (winter).
5. Maintain and improve fitness levels throughout lifetime.
6. Get back in touch with a HS foreign exchange student friend, Leo.
7. Give away hair for Locks of Love.
8. Own a house with my husband.
9. Complete Blog 365
10. Fear less. Try more. Do more.

I like your list: straightforward and do-able. Also about your comment on my blog, I actually earned my masters last semester but they told me some garbage about how the ice storm kept them from getting revisions back to me, so they won't actually award it to me until May. I agree 100% with your statement, but I need it so I don't have to work where I'm going to school. Thanks for your comment!

Kaytabug said...

That is a good list. I really like #10.

Sayre said...

Excellent list, but I have to say that number 10? That would take care of ALL the other ones - and it's definitely the way to live your life.

susan said...

I have to agree, number ten just sums everything all up.

Cynthia said...

Good list. I would like to see Niagra Falls.

The Rotten Correspondent said...

Just don't pull the slot machine lever too much or you won't be able to afford the others.

Andre Veloux said...

Fly on an airplace, vacation in the sun!!!? Well you can do those two in one go!!

Robocop said...

Cool list. Niagara Falls is especially beautiful when it is frozen over.

Carrie Sue said...

Number 10 sums it up - Fear less. Try more. Do more. Love it!

Karmyn R said...

OOH! Locks of love - that is a good one.

I had really long hair and had it cut short in 1996 - and wish that I had saved that hair. That was before giving hair was so accessible.

Karmyn R said...

Oh - I meant to add...when you do ever fly in an airplane, make sure you change plans in Las Vegas. They have slot machines in the airport!!

jientje said...

Good list! Yes, it is great to be content. Love number tenthough! It applies to me too!

Linda said...

Nice list! I like your lead in to the list though too! My feelings too.

ellen b. said...

Wonderful list Jill! It's fun to see everything I forgot to think about :)

Mariposa said...

Lovely list, especially #10! Happy FM!

Sandy said...

I love your list! Have fun accomplishing that!

Faye said...

Agree with you about re-visit to Niagra Falls--except I'd choose the fall--very beautiful. In your case though, the memories might be better in the winter. Good luck with that.

Start a bucket list with some slot winnings--you're a genius!

Ari_1965 said...

They all sound do-able to me. Not this week, of course.

Aoj & The Lurchers said...

I think no. 10 is something we should all aspire to. Good list!!

rob said...

No.2 was one of mine for a long time. I finally did it going on my honeymoon!

Here's a tip, fly in the smallest aircraft you can find. I flew in a not-quite microlite shortly after. It's so much more invigourating.

eclecticblog said...

A great list! Seems all very attainable! Hope you do them all!

Alix said...

Excellent list, I love number 10 and I like that you mention you've already achieved some of your most important goals - it's important to remember that when we're all striving after the next thing. Thanks for sharing and dropping by.

Joy T. said...

I think #10 says it all, what a good way to end your Bucket list!

tiger lamb girl said...

I'm loving your list. I'm especially loving #10!~:)

wakeupandsmellthecoffee said...

Great list, but I especially like No. 10.

Robin said...

Great List!

I've never been to Niagara Falls so that is on my list of places to visit when we decide to tour the u.s.

#10 is good - takes care of the rest.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm trying to figure out where I want the story to go right now and working on the 2nd draft. The characters want to go in a different direction than I want them to and we are having a fight right now. :) (kooky)

Megnificent said...

oh, oh! i'll go pull a slot machine lever with ya. i looooooove doing that. :D

ChrisB said...

I've never heard of locks of love but it's such a good idea.
I would love to see Niagara in the winter~ from the photos I've seen it would be an amazing sight! I loved it when I did a summer visit.

Sauntering Soul said...

Awesome list!

I donated to Locks of Love about a year and a half ago. SIXTEEN INCHES was cut off in one second. I went from almost waist length hair to chin length hair. I had grown my hair out for two years just to experience that feeling for Locks of Love. I wouldn't trade it for anything!

Tiggerlane said...

Niagara Falls should definitely be on my list. There are so many wonderful places in the US that I still need to visit! Thanks for participating!

Jettie said...

I love your list simple!! but not!!
I have been in the Rely For Life for 5 years!! Love the Locks for Love!!!

mjd said...

Yes, Niagara Falls deserves more than one visit. I want to go again too. Locks of Love is a wonderful organization.

kitten said...

I'm going next week to have my hair cut for Locks of Love.
We have a little girl in our town that can't grow hair. They use to give her shots in her head for 2 year, but it didn't help. She is sixteen now and has to wear a wig.

Serina Hope said...

It is all about #10.

Michelle said...

Great list!! I am growing my hair for Locks of Love right now. It's long enough but I think I'm gonna let it grow a little bit more!!

Alison said...

I like your list, very obtainable and realistic. you are right, our lists will change as the years go by!!

coloursofdawn said...

That is a good list, and one that can be done, especially the slot machine lever. I think Blog 365 is very attainable and you will know in less than 11 months that you could do it. I especially like your last one.

lisa marie said...

Wait a minute, you haven't pulled a slot machine lever? Oh girl, go now, run. :)

Mamalang said...

Nice list. I really liked number 10 as well.

Pamela said...

Put me on the Niagara Falls tour.

I'm going to use your #10 on my list, too.

sirdar said...

Pulling a slot machine lever isn't what it is cracked up to be...unless you win :-)

I've flown before, and been to Niagara Falls...before I was married.

I need to get back to that fitness level too.

We own a house...ok the bank owns it but I live in it and call it my home.

I LOVE #10!!

I hope you get to do all in your Bucket List!!

Rose said...

Thanks for commenting on my blog! Glad find yours; I should have put your #5 on mine but.....thanks again!

Patience-please said...

Hi, I've visited before, I think, from AOJ's blog. I've never seen Niagra Falls. Our grandaughter has grown 12" for Locks of Love, and is starting all over again. Cool, huh?
Nice to visit-
Patience

ped crossing said...

You can knock 1, 2 & 3 off your list in one shot. Take a trip to Vegas.

Great list!

bermudabluez said...

Great List! Love your top four...they were on mine originally, but since I'm kinda old now...had to cross them off! You will LOVE Vegas....it is indeed something to see. #10 is my favorite for sure!

nikki said...

I love Niagara Falls! I want to take my family there.

Detroit said...

Definitely pull the handle of a slot machine! I got that itch crossed off my list a few years ago...the glint in my eye scared my husband. It was pretty funny. My grandfather had always promised to take me when he live in Lake Tahoe but he passed away before I was old enough so I still had to do it...it was fun.

Detroit said...

OH! and sitting on the floor means that I am on the ground level, sitting near the bench or something...I won't get stomped on in my human form. ;o)

raising3saints said...

You remind me that I'd like to try to get in touch with several people who have fallen off my personal radar for one reason or another....I love your list. visit me at eastwardcatholicsoldiers dot wordpress dot com or write raising3saints at seamsheavenly dot com!

Karina said...

Fear less. Try more. Do moe. I love it, it just about sums it up! Great list!

Sandy C. said...

Sounds like you need a trip to Vegas :) I've never been to Niagara Falls and it's my list of to-do's too :) Along with Blog365 and #10! GReat list!

Debs said...

I want to give my hair to Locks of Love sometime too. It is still growing out.

Flying on a plane is not bad at all. ;)

Love your list.
