Life List

I was recently was reading one of my favorite blogs, and came across this:
A list of 100 things you want to do in your life.
A Bucket List of sorts.
I have always wanted to do this, so what better time than now?
I sat down for about an hour and wham bam thank you ma'm, my list was complete.
It was so fun to just sit and think...
think about the things I want to do, big, small, extravagant, and anything in between.

  5. I'm curious as to how many things on this list you can check off as an accomplishment in the nearly 2 years of blogging. :) I think I can check off a few of the them for you (just from reading your blog).

  6. One of my life goals is to visit all 50 states, but I may be stealing your idea of taking a picture with every "Welcome to ...." sign - I love that! Such a great way to remember visiting each state.


I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
