A 16 year old girl that I know has a list of 100 things that she wants to do before she dies.  She has shared a few of the goals on her list with me, and it appears to be a truly fantastic and thorough list.

1. Sing with Justin Bieber
2. Organize a fundraiser.
3. Go skydiving.
4. Attend a movie premiere.

That's all I remember. But I started thinking what I would put on a list, if I were to make a list of things I want to do before I die. So, here goes. I don't think I'll ever get to 100 of them, but here are 10:

1. Write in this blog until dementia or paralysis sets in, or blogs become extinct, whichever comes first.
2. Bake cookies for Hallie and Hanna to have warm when they come home from school at least once a week.
3. Go to Hawaii with Devin.
4. Go on a mission with Devin.
5. Maintain an environment in my home that is welcoming, accepting, and comfortable.
6. Sew Hallie and/or Hanna an Easter dress.
7. If the Easter dress goes well, sew more.
8. Take Devin to the Amazon, and Hotel do Fraje? Frade? How was that place spelled?
9. Run a half-marathon.
10. Trippin' 06... in '16.

Do you have a list? Any suggestions for my list?


  1. you already know that trippin '06/'16 is fo sho happenin!!

  2. Frade, and if I went back, bottom line... I would cry; not from being happy to be back but from an ache for such happy memories.

    Now if I could be back with all my kids and all their families, now that would rock. Not gonna happen :) but we'll do some fun stuff.

    My bucket list, I know four
    - a green house for Vickie
    - a trip to Williams Lake, BC
    - a mission with Sister Boling
    - a photo with all our grandkids

  3. Looks like a good list to me! But what is: trippin '06/'16 ?
    My list includes seeing 7 wonders of the world. (I have seen 1... 6 to go)

  4. What is trippin' '06/'16? Apparently you're a woman of mystery. ;)

    I like your list.

    And yeah, a bucket list is what you want to do before you "kick the bucket."

    I like your list. Hm. A mission with Jeff when I'm old is definitely on my list. I wonder what else is on there . . .
