Reader Help

Being the list person I am, I'm a little suprised (ok, shocked) that I haven't yet put a Bucket List together for myself. I mean, I make lists all the time, all day long but haven't yet put any thought into "thee" list? What's up with that? So, yesterday I sat down to start my little list but couldn't think of one dang thing to put on it! Ok, I did think of one thing, (don't laugh) I want to learn to do the splits but that's it. Sad, I know. So, I thought I'd enlist the help of my beautiful readers...

Can you give me some good ideas to put on my Bucket List? What do you have on yours?

Hmmm...How about visiting the North Pole and seeing Santa's workshop (when I have a little one I will do it for sure) and I wish I could name a star one day!

Kisses darling and have a fantastic day!

Sorry, I am not familiar with bucket list, may I know what it is, here in Singapore I don't have Bucket List, is it like a wish list? or a wish list for christmas? but based on previous comments I deduce that it's got to do with holiday? if it were correct then my bucket list would be got to Europe and have fun, sight see and eat, and shop of course (please don't laugh at me if i get all this wrong ha ha ha), have a fabulous day, xoxo

I haven't actually made a list either...I'd like to though!! I know I would put 'go sailing' on it...I'd like to visit Paris, NYC and Hollywood...have children...open a cupcake cafe! :)

Daisy said...

I think most of mine have to do with traveling somewhere. It's all about travel. But I don't have a physical list. ever been to the island of Santorini in Greece? It's a bucket lister for sure.

Nikki said...

Paraglide. Of course you should put anything riskyat the end of your bucket list or else you may not finish it ;)

jemina said...

Now I feel silly ha ha ha :), BUT truly what a great idea bucket list is, OK here's my bucket list" I want to travel the world and take pictures of animals and nature, YAY!!!!!, thanks for letting me know what a bucket list is JEN, I love this idea :))), xoxo

Jen said...

You're welcome Jemina!

Ok, so I have a few more that I'm going to add to the list... visit all 50 US states, go to a nude beach, skydive (tandom, of course), run a 5k and take a strip tease lesson ;-)

What a coincidence my mom and were just talking about this yesterday. I am working on a 39 things to do this year....I'll be post about that in a day or so.

Bucket List ideas- write a book, volunteer locally or overseas, do one thing to change someones life in a positive way (that's a big one), travel to ?......

melifaif said...

Doing the splits....that is hilarious lady!!! I can get you to do that, but there is NO telling what doctors you would need to visit there after...bahahahaha. I wanna visit Australia and the Greek Isles. As well as discover America, but we all know that ain't gonna happen. Just kidding...just explore our beautiful states.

Niagara Falls, The Rocky Mountains, being a Bride, riding a motorcycle, owning a Chanel handbag, a pair of Versace shoes, and Louis Vuitton luggage, let's see there is little things like growing hydrangeas, photographing a hummingbird, painting a sunset, learing Yoga, a kiss under the Eiffel Tower, and leaving those Bitches at the Yacht Club speechless when I tell them off Julia Sugarbaker style.

Sailing...I want to sail, and own a houseboat, a color cruise up the Tennessee River when the leaves are changing in the fall, Australia, don't forget Australia.
Owning a Harlequin Great Dane, and a simple pearl necklace, setting up a memorial fund for runaway children, and catching one bigger than him!
I love you, this is the innermost thoughts of my mind here!

travel the world!

Caroline said...

Visit Japan and New Zealand ... complete an Iron Man by the time I am 30, live in Europe for a year, try all the coffee drinks at my favorite coffee shop, go running barefoot, go to culinary school ... those are some of them. Love your blog and I do hope you become a regular of Coeur de La!!! XO

AH said...

travel the world is definitely on my bucket list...

Mango Gal said...

Cross country road trip, buy our first house, grow a vedgetable garden and actually use it, visit all seven continents (yes, even Antartica), try a drastically new hair cut or color, learn a new language, get over my fear of kareoke and belt out a tune...

Those are all I can think of for now! LOL Hope it helps!

Debby said...

I think the fact that you can't think of anything to put on your list says that you have lived a full and satisfying life up till this point! Mine is all travel and too long to list.. here are the top three, London, Greece, Italy! Oh, yes, of course own a house on Nantucket - which is actually more of a pipe dream considering the real estate prices on the island! xo

Visit the pyramids and ride a camel!!

Sail up the Nile, visit Australia, dance at my own wedding, sky dive, swim with sharks (although I may die doing it, I am so scared!)...I could go on and on...

I'maNolaGirl said...

I'd like you to add "Go to New Orleans for Mardi Gras" to your list so that I can show you around and throw you some beads!!!

I totally cracked up when you said splits.
I would like to take my kids to Disney World one day. Is that a bucket wish??? I'm not sure.

Anyway congrats on your blog award from me. I just had to give this one.

Cheers Lisa xx

Josie said...

I so desperately want to make a Bucket List but it seems like such an intimidating project! Everything I come up with (finishing college, etc) seems so... Bland.

i think a lot of people already said it but travel somewhere crazy unique. somewhere other people wouldn't even think of. get a tattoo (if you don't already have one). run a marathon. learn something new like surfing or knitting. adopt a pet. etc. etc.

C.A.M said...

I have a few on my list- mostly travel! But my two biggest is...

Get lost in a small town in Tuscany for a year... eat, drink & learn italian.

and as said as this sounds... simply fall in love. :)

Go where your heart desires... Good luck Jen!

OneCraftyFox said...

I have never heard of a bucket list... really :) But doing the splits totally made me laugh even though I knew I wasn't supposed to!

I suppose just come up with things that you think will make you happy or challenge you :)

Brooke said...

standard bucket list stuff. travel to europe, run a marathon. then there is the weird stuff like pay for my niece and nephew to go to college. have a million dollar net worth by the time i'm 40.

Mary said...

Plan a world trip! Buy an all around the world plane ticket! Go on adventures, experience different cultures :)

I just want to learn to breakdance before I die. That pretty much sums it all up.
My hubby and I would love to go to Ireland some day. But learning to breakdance is really more important.

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Hmm how about:
1. Dive in Belize
2. Go on a safari in South Africa
3. Grow peonies
4. Cruise around Greece
5. Learn a martial art
6. Master pie crust
7. Be a better salsa dancer

Wild and Precious said...

...::Heather @ Mrs. Southern Bride::... said...

I love lists, especially bucket lists. :) I have lots of traveling, and learning new things on mine. Like visiting Ireland, and learning to dance.

Abby said...

I want to visit places in Asia like Korea and Japan. And learn to play the piano better than decently. Hey, maybe you should learn an instrument? Or a different one if you already know one?

(maybe I should learn to play the tin pan)

OHHHHHlivia said...

Your blog. IS. AWESOME.

RedHead said...

Fashion Show in NYC!!! I have a list in my head but nothing on paper!! You might inspire me to do this soon!!!

Mackenzie {Design Darling} said...

i have a bucket list of fifty things that i'm constantly crossing off and replacing with new goals! it's a major source of motivation and inspiration for me so i'm happy to hear that you're starting one as well! a few of my favorites are to ring in the new year in fiji, to publish a book, to donate anonymously to charity, to run/walk a marathon... i hope you'll share your own with us soon!

Corinne said...

Jessica said...

I just found your lovely blog and couldn't help throw a few more suggestions into them, um, bucket.

1. Feel dwarfed in a redwood forest.
2. Swim in both oceans.
3. Ride in a hot air balloon.
4. Ride a mule to the bottom of the Grand Canyon.
