Bucket List

Do you have one? I have never watched the movie, but I get the idea. You have a list of things you would like to accomplish/see/do in your lifetime. Someone mentioned this to me the other day and I thought 'I don't have one...anymore'. I used to have this list of things I wanted to do (before the movie ever came out) and I have accomplished them. I had, at one point in my life, a SCUBA certification. I went on a Brio/Focus-on-the-family-sponsored mission trip. I spend three months living in Eastern Africa. I went to a small Christian School. I got a degree in Biology. I lived with my maternal grandparents for a year. I worked as a counselor at a summer camp (for three years while in college). I got married to a wonderful man and love him more everyday.

But what about now? Sure, I have goals for the year (see my 2012 resolutions post), but in terms of my life? From now until whenever? I'm not sure.

This has got me thinking...what are some of the things I have had in mind to do...eventually? Here are some of the things that have been rolling around in my head (and I plan on adding more/crossing them off as they happen with dates etc):
1. Visit the Redwood trees
2. Sleep in a tree house (they have them near Seattle Washington)
3. Live in Oregon
4. Visit India, Iceland, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Greece, Japan, Sweden
5. Ride in a Hot Air Balloon
6. Meet/talk with President Obama & First Lady Michelle Obama 
7. Collect all of my favorite Disney/other childhood movies
