Write it down. Make it happen. Know what you want. Or in other words...My Bucket List.

In the hopes of making my dreams and goals reality, I am writing them down, and committing to them.  There is so much I would love to do, some as easy as getting up off the couch and just doing , and others requiring years of saving and preparation.  So without further ado my bucket list;

Travel Europe...Scotland, Germany, Italy, England.
Sing with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir...like join it, you know.
Learn to knit, and make my family matching hats and scarves.
Run a marathon.  I would like my first one to be the Honolulu Marathon, but I am not that picky.  I just want to be a runner.
Write a book.
Write another book, that doesn't suck.
Make quilts, I want to be a quilter.
Swim with the sharks. 
Own a home...our own home.
Learn to speak another language...Spanish, French, I am not to sure yet?
Visit and attend as many Temples as possible, all over the world (right now I have 6 different ones under my belt, in three different states).
Go sky diving.
Get a Masters Degree in anything.
Go to Africa.
Be debt free, and financially secure.
Have a big family...maybe 4 or 5 kids.  Ahh, did I just say that out loud!?
Be a guest judge on the Iron Chef America.
Road Trip across America.

Well, that is a start.  I got a lot of planning and working to do.  I am so over new year's resolutions...they never work out for me.  I think from now on I am just going to have my own birthday resolutions, keep track of my year to year progress.  My birthday is coming up, and as I think about turning 29 this year... I also start thinking of all I want to do before I turn 30.  I feel as if I haven't accomplished much with my 29 years, aside from my gorgeous family.  And I really want to do and be so much more.  Now, what first on my list, hmmmm

This is such a good idea, I'm gonna steal it!

And a lot of your list makes my list - only 5 things on yours aren't on mine.

Does being a hugely important part of our lives, not just for a few years, but for even now count? Does it count that I credit you (or share some at least) with bracket's amazingness?

I'll run with you anytime. Especially when you move back to Alameda!
