My Bucket List

My mom is probably one of the coolest people you will ever meet. Here she is below with my sister and brother-in-law at my sister's wedding.

So why, you might ask, is she so cool?

Well just the other day, I get a call from her. She is on vacation in California right now, and do you know what she called to tell me?


My mother is 60 years old.

She is my hero.

When I am 60, you better believe I will be parasailling.

Hearing my mom's story, in fact, inspired me to write down all the things I hope to do before I kick the bucket.

So, lucky readers of mine, here it is. My bucket list:

1. Go parasailing, bungee jumping, sky diving, water skiing,

2. Have children with my husband

3. Foster and adopt children with my husband

4. Live in Africa

5. Stop biting my freaking nails

6. Write a book (About what? Who knows! But I want to do it anyway...)

7. Start a ministry with Brandon

8. Send all my kids to college

9. Sing with a choir of at least 500 people!

10. Touch an alligator

11. Touch a lion

12. Own a horse

13. Milk a cow

14. Travel to Italy

15. Travel to Israel

16. Live next door to my sister and mom again

17. Have grandchildren

18. Have great grandchildren

19. Drive a race car

20. Learn to ride a motorcycle

21. Improve the public school system

22. Improve the social welfare system

23. Have a healthier relationship with my father

24. Learn a third language

25. Make a cool invention

Well, I am sure there is more, but I will continue to add to this as time goes on (or cross things off as I accomplish them

What about you guys? What's on your bucket list? Leave me comments and let me know!


  1. Friendo, I think you started a ministry with Brando when you got married. So you can cross that one off the list.

  2. @ Lindsay-

    So True...the ministry to my family. However, we still want to start another ministry too.

    But good eye, good eye:)

  3. you are gonna have to cross #20 off your list. i do not approve of motorcycles...even with a helmet. i don't want to have to give you therapy for the rest of your life. not allowed.

  4. No-Can-Do, Miss Jenna...I really want to do it!

    Plus? Having you as a therapist would be awesome because you are the best ever.:)
