Do You Have a Bucket (List)?

I don’t have a bucket list.  I don’t have a list of things I want to do before I die – goals that are both realistic or pie-in-the-sky. Don’t have one. Sure, I have my 101 List – and I love it – because there are things on that list that I’m accomplishing that I might not push myself to do otherwise (because I can assure you, there is no other reason why I would ever go to McDonald’s).

But, I like the idea of a bucket list.

When I asked some friends what was on their bucket list – I found that they have great goals and dreams. Rachel wants a picture of her and her husband in front of the Eiffel Tower.  Malia and Alli want to do some travelling – lots of it!

A few weeks ago, Jules (she of the Cinderella Project fame) asked me if I had ever seen “The Buried Life” on MTV. At the time, I hadn’t seen the show – and somehow, I managed to miss it the next few weeks. Last week, though, I finally remembered. And then I finally saw it last week.

On last week’s episode, the guys entered a krump contest. And I laughed so hard – and I may have krumped around my house for thirty minutes afterwards, earning myself the nickname: Mother Krumper. (It wasn’t pretty, by the way. Apparently, I lack krump skills. SIGH).

These guys have a list of 100 things they want to do before they die. And they’re doing them. And they’re doing BIG things and they’re doing little things, and it kind of makes me want to make a list of my own. And I think I’ll start with their #4: Start a dance in a public place.

Do you have a bucket list? If you do, what kind of things are on it?

  1. I like the idea of a Bucket List. I’ve seen previews of the show but I’ve yet to actually watch it. Here is one….

    Visit every state in America with my husband and children. Driving to Maine from Oregon~this is pretty do-able in the next ten years or so. It is something I can’t finish in the next two years.

    I am enjoying my 101 List. My girls are excited to help me complete my list like climb the rock wall at the local community center, we are all going to do it together.

  2. I do have a bucket list but not written down anywhere. Sounds like a great project to start. I keep thinking of you 101 but then I get nervous and shy away.

  3. I do! It’s here – and I’ve LOVED having it out there – published in a sense … it’s a great motivator to live life fuller in your every day monotony. (found your site from the facebook page for West Michigan Bloggers … so nice to “meet” you!)

  4. I don’t have an entire list, because I’m too lazy to actually sit down and write one, but 2 things that I know for sure I want to do eventually are go to Australia and take an Alaskan Cruise.
