My Bucket List


My twin sis and I have bucket lists. The funny thing is that they aren't literally on paper. They are in our heads.

For instance, my Nay Nay called me and said, "You won 't believe what I did!  I got big girl shoes…for my bucket list."

"Really? Big girl shoes?" I asked. I knew exactly what she meant. When we were born, and back in the day when braces could or should be recommended for feet that in-toed, we weren't given that joy. As a result, walking in high heels can often be a challenge. My Nay Nay decided that she was going to cross off one thing on that bucket list and found a deal of 10 pairs of heels. (Not one but 10. She went for the gusto.) Each day, she practiced walking in her big girl shoes until the moment finally came and she ROCKED those heels!

Together we have decided that we WILL cross off stuff on our growing bucket lists. Some of those things are on both of our lists while others are our very own "personal" bucket lists.

Some of mine are a bit on the outlandish side. But, in my own defense, I like to think BIG!!

Here are a few glimpses into my growing list…

1) Going on an African safari. This will have to be one that I do on my own OR my sis would have to go with me. J says that he refuses to be a lion's meal.

2) Doing a stand-up comedy act. (I think I'm funny. So maybe I'll discover a new hidden talent.)

3) Going to Uganda or China and adopting one or two or maybe three kids. (J is keeping his mouth closed on this one. He says that unless he is "called" to go, he's not going. I just hope God wakes him up with a LOUD voice.)

4) Working in the assembly line at See's Candy.

5) Write a few books…not one or two but a few.

6) Go to the top of a mountain and camp out while listening to God speak

7) Go barn chasing a la taking pictures of as many barns as I can.

8) Pet a newborn sheep

9) Play a character on Grey's Anatomy.

10) Take a cruise to Alaska. (Hopefully, with all you can eat crab legs.)

Told you some of them don't make sense! :)

What are some things you would add to your bucket list?

I not only love that you have a list but that you dream BIG! What is the use of putting it in the bucket if it won't "Fill" it up in the end?! If with nothing else but to look forward to and imagine something to help spice up those "bland/tough" days we all have :)

I love your list. I think you and your sister should do the Africa trip - what fun you would have! Good for you for dreaming big - but it doesn't surprise me! :)

Very fine bucket list. Since the Safari is at the top of your list, I say you and sister start researching and planning! I know you will love it. What an experience and what a memory to share!

Stacy said...

So many good things on your list. Love the idea of barn chasing and writing a "few" books. You can do it. GO!!

Joanna Jenkins said...

Count me in for the assembly line job at See's Candy. I would LOVE that!

I did a cruise to Alaska several years ago and so hope you can make the trip. It's absolutely amazing. And save room for some fresh caught salmon too. YUM.

Paris is on my Bucket List.

I popped over from Love, Life and All that Jazz (formerly Writing and All that Jazz). I am so thrilled that we can push and encourage each other with our bucket lists. Sometimes it helps when you know someone else is willing to be just as daring and crazy as yourself. I personally think the chocolate factory one sounds heavenly, especially if you can eat the flubbed up ones. Thanks for sharing!

I CAN'T BELIEVE I FOUND YOU AFTER A YEAR!!!

Remember the manuscript you edited for me? Well, I just shoved it to the back of the drawer and tried to forget it.

Then suddenly, it showed up on my imaginary BUCKET LIST: do this before you die.

It was published last week and I got my author's copy today.

(sad to say, there's quite a few mis-spelled words that neither you, nor I and Joe, found!) Quite embarrassing to say the least.

I just wanted you to know.

Type in: TREADWELL dana joy wyzard at amazon.com and it will pop up.

I designed the book cover myself.

More kids Simone?! Oh, no! Cross that one off. LOL How you gonna get to Africa with little people hanging onto your ankles.

Writing a book would be nice for me, too. And the cruise. And the safari. :)

Buckeroomama said...

I'd love to see you do comedy! :)

On my bucket list? Visit Santorini.
