Bucket List

So when Elise assigned this... I thought fun. I really didn't know how hard it would be. My husband could tell you a bunch of crazy things he would like to do, great things, adventurous things. I would of liked to make some really crazy things up, just to be cool. But that would defeat the whole purpose, I guess my dreams are just not very wild and crazy. So I tried, and I may have to revise sooner or later, but this is what I've come up with so far.

Things to do before I die (and if I have it my way that will be when I'm 110.)

Take a painting class
Take a Hike (a real one where you hike a long long ways, and sleep under the stars at night)
Drive cross country in an RV
Watch Alaskan Bears during the Salmon run
Learn another language
Take a cruise
Learn to quilt
Visit a Real Castle
Wear a Big Foot Costume and stand by the side of the road near the woods
Have a herd of Pygmy goats
Go caving (over come my fear of tight spaces)
Grow a pumpkin patch
Write a book of poetry
Go somewhere tropical
See The Phantom of the Opera (so close)
Drive the coast on a Harley
Make tamales with my sister in law and sisters (like an assembly line, I'll be in charge of the green olives)
Sing a solo for a group of more than ten
Make a positive change to my community
Hot Air Balloon
Travel the life of Joseph Smith
Try Sushi
Dye my hair blue
Make t-shirt quilts for all my kids (learn to quilt)
Dress up and watch Rocky Horror Picture show
Act on stage
Restore a Ford Maverick
Go to the Grand Canyon
Be the lovely assistant in a magic show
Learn to make noodles like my Grandma J
Learn to smile in the face of adversity
Feed a monkey out of my hand
Volunteer in the children's wing of a hospital
Learn to Decorate Cakes
Bicycle 40 miles

Okay I'm out for right now... like I said its a work in progress... and I will keep adding too it.

Stand by the side of the road dressed like bigfoot! HAA! Do that and you might end up getting shot.. It would be funny though. I can see someone stopping and chasing you through the woods with their camera :)

17 days!!!! And you can cross the sushi tasting off your list that night too.. Good thing we decided on Dragonfish for dinner..

I love it!! It's amazing how as I have thought about this the last few days there are so many things that you have on your list that I would also have on mine. I'm working on it. And I love the tamalie one - we need to add it to our family reunion.
