    Bucket list…

    May 11, 2010 - Author: Greis - 20 Comments

    When it comes to blogging I’m a follower.
    When I see fun meme’s or great ideas I’ll totally post them here too.
    What can I say, I’m pretty boring like that.

    Some of my favorites have posted their 101 lists.  They have given themselves over 1,000 days to complete a list of 101 things/tasks.  I’m a slacker and really don’t want to commit to completing a list by a certain day, and I don’t want to commit to a set number of things/tasks.  So I’ve titled my list  Things To Do Before I Kick the Bucket.  So as long as I don’t die tomorrow or in a week or even sometime within the next few 20 years I figure I’ll have some time to get these things done.

    I’ll be updating my list with new things as I think of them and I’ll be crossing things off as I get them done.  I don’t promise that they’ll EVER be completed. :)

    Things to do Before I Kick the Bucket

      IF you get a hookup to get your ass kicked by Jillian, I want to go too! I would love that. Also, NYC during the holidays would be awesome.

      I wouldn’t be able to get my ass kicked by Jillian alone. You are so totally invited!

      On my list: Trip to Europe.
      I even think I can get the hubby on board for that. And if not… hmph. Still going.

      Europe would be fun too. A few weeks traveling to many of the countries would make for a great vacation.

      I like this a lot. All 50 states is so on my list. I want to see the small things though, not just the big things.

      There is this book that i have, somewhere…1,001 things to see before you die. Some are very, very cool.
      .-= Issa´s last blog ..She does everything her way =-.

      Greis Reply:

      1,001 and is a LOT of things. :) The small things are good too, sometimes better than the BIG.

      That is some list. I love the Jillian idea. certainly wouldn’t be on mind (terrifying), but if it ever happens, let us know!

    7. And that would be a full life, well lived! All your travel dreams reminded me that I have a huge “list” item unfulfilled. I want to stand on Antarctica. It would be the last continent for me to earn my “stood on all seven” stripes.

      Greis Reply:

      Wow, Antarctica would be pretty amazing I’m sure. And if anyone can accomplish the standing on all 7 continents goal I know it will be you.

    8. Since my bucket time is shorter then yours I think I should work on a list. Wouldn’t it be fun to meet up in Paris. I am really craving that one. Your list is awesome and I haven’t done most of them either. Oprah, lets go to Oprah!!! I am going to miss her show. I am going to pray that you get married and have a baby, that seems to be the most important if you ask me!

      Meeting up in Paris or to go see Oprah would definitely be a fun trip!!!

    9. I just did this very thing last week! (make a bucket list, not threw the first pitch) Here’s mine: http://thelastgirlstanding.blogspot.com/2010/05/bucket-list.html . Your list is much more ambitious than mine… and that really says something, considering mine includes potentially winning an Oscar AND an Emmy, lol!

      You know… if you come to Canada to winter you can see real snow. Lots of it ;)

      Love your list. Canada definitely has LOTS of snow. I shall get there one day.

      I have completed 10 of the things on your bucket list, yet none on mine, boooo me… I have had to “adjust” my bucket list and it just seems boring now. I might borrow a couple of yours, please buy large luggage in case you do the travel stuff because ( I am not as limber as I used to be) that would allow me to scratch off some of my stuff too. It’s a win win.

      Greis Reply:

      I will definitely pick up some larger luggage when I get ready to make a dent in my list. It will definitely be a win win!!
