Hey everyone! I know I said I probably wouldn't be posting but I just can't stay away! No food today but I remember a while ago I posted my Fitness Bucket List and mentioned that I have a regular Bucket List.

OK hope you liked this post and found my bucket list at least a little interesting ;) Time to get ready for my mom's birthday dinner! Hope you all have a great Saturday!


    1. I don't celebrate my birtday - I don't like it but I do celebrate my 1/2 birthday. It's fun, unexpected, and no one expects cake or brings presents. It's just a fun random excuse for a party! :)

      1. I never celebrate my birthday either which is why it isn't in red :) I'm not interested in parties or anything and anything I try to do with my family is usually derailed. Last year I got super sick that weekend and we never made up for it!

    2. There are so many wonderful goals on this list! I really had to reign myself in to not over-comment! 14, 40, 46 would definitely be at the top of my list. I'm with you on 17 and 21, which I know we've talked about. Bagpipes?! Awesome! Shopping for a bed in pjs sounds appropriate in my mind. You are pretty close to 67 and 75!! :)

      1. Thanks Ingrid! Haha yeah I love bagpipes and always thought it would be cool to learn! I have this weird obsession with the northern lights and I really want to see them! I also want to have the most kick ass garden ever. Ahh one day. I'm closer to 75 than 67 lol but one day! :)

    3. Yes, open that vegan bakery! You'd be the star of the vegan baking world.

      Fun list of goals! I totally want to learn how to make jewelery too. I have dreams about the coolest jewelry, but then I can't remember exactly how it looked in the morning.

      I love the one about shopping for a bed in your PJs!

      I hope all your dreams come true...I know you can make it happen!

      1. Aww thanks Rose! That's so sweet of you to say :)

        I feel like jewelry making is so fun but I'm too much of a spazz to figure it out. My problem is that my mind works in overdrive thinking of things but I never really figure out HOW to make it happen!

        Haha yeah I thought the bed shopping in PJs would be fun :)

        Thank you Rose! Slowly but surely I'll make it come together!

    4. I only had two items on my bucket list - take a cruise and eat at the Jules Verne restaurant in the Eiffel Tower - but now that I read your bucket list, I have some I wasn't aware of.

      I was working toward getting my passport filled with stamps, then I lost it at JFK returning from Hong Kong. Now I don't even have an active passport.

      The photo shoot at a penitentiary sounds unpleasant. #53 you can highlight in red, cuz your blogs is an inspiration to me and many others.

      1. Oh no, that sucks that you lost your passport! I can't imagine why it wasn't returned to you if I has all of your info in it? That is such a bummer :( I have quite a few stamps but quite a few to go. I really want to go to Scandinavia... I'd check quite a few things off my list there!

        Haha that penitentiary is crazy, supposedly super haunted and it is just a cool building. ANd thank you so much that is so sweet!

    5. This is such a great list! I would put so many of the same items on my own- owning a bakery, grown my own food, fill my passport, eat more raw, reconnect with old friends, etc. I love how some items are very concrete, serious goals and others are more playful, like shopping for a bed in PJs ;)

      You've inspired me to actually make my own :)

      1. Yes that's awesome! I believe everyone should have a bucket list... I think it gives you something to aspire to, something to work toward and ways to grow as a person.

        You could definitely own a bakery, your treats look so amazing! You are on your way with the raw food! That was my plan, to have some serious goals and to also have fun things to keep life interesting :)

    6. I'm glad you posted this because I adore reading these types of lists. You have some great stuff on there! I also want to do #2, #13, #17, #46 and #48.

      I've listened to all of the songs on my ipod using shuffle, which took forever, but it was kind of cool to do. I've also visited a farm sanctuary and seen the Northern Lights (they were over Lake Michigan one time- so cool!), as well as a few other things on your list. I hope that you get to do all of it!

      1. Thanks Molly! I actually had you in mind when I posted it because I think I remember you encouraging me to post it :) I knew a bunch of these would resonate with you too, especially since we share a love of road trips and tattoos!

        That's so cool that you listened to your ipod all the way through! I may have to do that on my road trip and hook it up in the car ;) I'm so jealous that you saw the Northern Lights! It must have been so amazing!

        Thanks me too!

    7. This cruiser is what happens when you mix a classical-styled bicycle with a vibrant color pallet Hermosa Beach.

      cruiser bicycles

    8. Great list! I think I'm going to make my own. I like that you have things that go from exotic (visit Easter Island) to simple but important (get more organized).

      I love bagpipes, and I had a bagpiper play at my wedding. I saw the Northern Lights when I lived in Vermont, and they were magical but I want to see them again.

      1. Thanks! You should definitely make a list, it is fun to think about everything you want to do and see in your lifetime! I thought I covered a nice range lol.

        That is so cool that you had a bagpiper! I've been to at least 100 weddings and only saw my first bagpiper last November (at the last wedding I worked). Such a great touch! I'm so jealous that you have see the Northern Lights, I bet magical is the perfect term to describe them!

    9. Waddaya mean you don't celebrate your birthday??? That's terrible! You're a fabulous, kind, loving person and you deserve to be celebrated.

      I would totally build a fort and have a slumber party with you. I really miss the slumber parties I had as a kid. I tell the best ghost stories. And we could eat vegan s'mores!

      I just checked my iTunes...I have 43 DAYS worth of music. Whoa! How long would it take you to listen to your entire music collection?

      1. Aww thank you Sage, that is very sweet of you :) I don't know, it just never came together over the past few years. Last year I actually ended up getting the flu my birthday weekend and we never pulled it together after that. My birthday falls on a Saturday this year so that should help.

        I'm so glad you said that because I feel like it would be so fun to do when I'm on my California road trip! I think we should definitely do it :) We'd be knocking a bunch of things off my list because I was planning on doing my road trip for my 30th birthday (2013)! ;)

        43 days?! That is incredible!! I only have 2.2 days lol. Although 2 days is still a lot I guess! I'm so impressed by your collection!
