    Wow… God did make the perfect woman for me : ) My favorite numbers are 3- I went to school for Architecture, so I’ve always since a kid wanted to go visit the Pyramids. 9- I love to fish, and I really want to go on a deep sea fishing tour next year. 21- I promise you “I’m a Wonderful Guy”, Hey I have family and friends that’ll vouch for me. LOL! As for my bucket list I Dream really Big so I would need to use the bucket of a bull dozer to put my list in. : ) There’s alot on your list that I also plan on doing except pole and belly dancing! Lol And I’ve bowled alot of strikes, actually 11 in a row
    so I’m still shooting for that 300 perfect game. Lol I’m going to put my list together and post

      I really had fun doing this and I’m sure you will too. I left a lot of things off from the original list because they were only things a 14 year old girl would think of but maybe I’ll share just for fun one day. I’ll be adding more things as I think of them. My fingers were tired after typing all of this!!!

  2. You have inspired me to write a bucket list! I have always said that there are things that I need to accomplish in my life but I have been putting it off because there are responsibilities that I need to tend to first. Of course, as a single mother your priority is your child, but that shouldn’t stop me from setting and achieving goals. I guess I have a lot of thinking to do. Thanks for the eye-opener!

    I think that I am going to start me a bucket list as well. Over the past few years or so, things have happened in my life that have caused me to be restricted and tense and playing it safe. I am not getting any younger and I want to experience life again… and my kids. I think making this list will help me to get motivated. All I have to do is trust God and He will direct my path. He wants me to be happy…so why not!
