Birthday Bucket List

42. I am going to be 42. How did this happen?? It has all gone by so fast.

I know I'm not the only one who wonders how this happened so quickly.

Comparing 42, to 32, or heck even 22, I'll take 42 ANY DAY! I am in such a better place in my life. I'm in better health, my kids are older and becoming more independent. I'm married to the same man I was at 32 (though a different man than when I was 22...confession, yes I've been married before.)

Since I'm new to the blogging world I've never published my bucket list before. I'm proud to be able to cross some items off this year!

  • I'd have to put "complete the 17k hike from UNBC, through Forests for the World, up the Cranbrook Greenway to the Ski hill" for mine.  That's something that I've always wanted to do, just me and the dog.
  • For my bucket list, I want to visit New England with my daughter and hubby; travel to Canada, Iceland, and England/Ireland/Scotland; and get back to Yellowstone a few times.
  • Machu Piccu (sp?) and rafting in the Grand CanyonSmile I highly recommend your #25.
  • Awesome list!  We have a lot of the same bucket list items! Go figure!  It must be a Leo thing.  lol Wink

    Seriously though, since moving to our 'hood where they launch hot air balloon DAILY, I have been wanting to ride one for years now.  I see them floating in the sky while I run and I think to myself, "Man!  I want to do that!"  So, let's plan to do that together!

    I also want to compete in an Iron Man some day.  I hear Augusta is the one to do. ROAD TRIP!!!
  • I don't have a bucket list!  I've been so lucky to have done so many amazing things already I've not really sat down to think what else.  You have inspired me to "Dream Big Little Pig" ( a favorite children's book) and create a bucket list.
  • They contain lots of vitamins and minerals that can satisfy even the biggest hunger but won't make you fat. Negative key words are the words that you DON'T want your ad to show up with. If you have not, you may want to take the time to examine them.
