Wednesday's List: Bucket List

It's Wednesday!  That means it's time for Wednesday's List. Join me and write a post in list form, (doesn't have to be bucket list) then leave a comment and let me know you are joining me so I (along with others) can check your list out! I LOVE LIST!

Can I just tell you that I've been wanting to share with you my bucket list for a while,
BUT at the same time I feel that my bucket list isn't yet complete...
I started a bucket list several years ago in a Journal and that Journal is currently boxed up. So I'm going to try and remember as well as I can what was on that original list.  Plus I've added some and taken some off.

My Bucket List:
 (in no particular order)

1. Visit all 50 States in the USA
2. Ride in a Hot Air Balloon
3.  Take my daughters on a foreign mission trip
4. Visit New York City
5. Go on a road trip across the USA
6. Go skiing in "real" snow.  I've only skied down a hill when I was 10 on fake/man-made snow.
7. Run a 10k...or a 1/2 marathon...
8. Adopt a child...or two
9. Go see the Grand Canyon
10. Get a Tattoo
11. Learn to Knit something that's not square or rectangle (not a headband/scarf/ear warmers)
12. Go on an overnight hiking trip
13. Scuba dive with my Dad and Brother somewhere besides my dads pool
14. Volunteer somewhere at least once a year, every year
15. Visit the 7 wonders of the world
16. See my girls give their lives to follow make their life about Him.
17. At some point, live in a State that is closer to family
18. Ride on a Train
19. To be dept free. We only have my student loan left to pay off!
20. Buy and sewing machine and learn to use it.
21. Get another passport (mine expired in 2009)
22. Take Journey to Mexico (Deci went when she was 13 moths old)
23. Have a street party for our neighbors.
24. Memorize a HUGE chunk of Scripture
25. Personally feed a homeless person...not as in spoon feed them but buy them food and hand it to them.

I would like to add that sometimes I feel like we make bucket list and they are very selfish and worldly.  Mine is no different.  When I think of a bucket list I think of things to actually do to cross's hard to cross off "be less selfish" or "learn more about the bible"  or "Be a better Mom." etc... but there are several things that I would like to change about myself before I "kick the bucket"...I'm just not sure that I'll actually be able to do these things and cross them off a list...they are ongoing.  Maybe that's another list post...

Bucket list items that I took off my list:
-bungee jumping
-sky diving
Like I ever really had enough courage to do either of these and now I have 2 kids that would have a hard time living without me if something went terribly wrong...but maybe one day when they are older I can add these back on my list...maybe. ;)

Have you posted a List lately? I would love to read it!
Happy Listing!

I'm not sure my bucket list will ever be complete, there is too many amazing things that keep popping up to add :)

I am happy that I skydives when I was younger and fearless, because I'm not sure I could do it now!

I don't mine will be complete either! Now all our travels out of state are back to Bama but it's fun to dream! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment Annette! (and I'm impressed that you have skydived! How fun!)
