The Bucket List

Yesterday Husband and I watched the movie The Bucket List for the first time. (I know it’s been out for a while – I guess we’re a little behind on movie-watching.) I thought it was pretty good. It was funnier and more moving than I expected it to be. Anyway, it made me think about my own “bucket” list. These are the things, off the top of my head, that I’d put on my list: *Learn how to surf *Visit Australia *Visit China and see the Great Wall *Write a book (even if it never gets published) *See the Grand Canyon *Ride in a helicopter *Live overseas (if a military overseas assignment is possible) I expect to keep adding to the list over time. But now I’m curious…what’s on your bucket list?

I'm not really sure what a bucket list or what the movie is. Apparently I'm going to have to check it out.

We just watched that the other day too. We started to put together a list immediately. First big plan...Greece next Spring. Yay! :)

Hike the Milford Trail in New Zealand, hold my first grandchild (I know, doesn't really fit, but hey!), Kiss my Beloved at the Eiffel Tower, Visit my relatives in Germany...the list goes one...

Love your list! I'd love to see Australia too.

I have actually done everything on your list except write a book! Growing up in the military helped me travel, and now that I married Mr. Top Gun, I get to mark off Japan! I've always wanted to go to Greece though, and I want to hold a penguin too!! They are my fave animals :)
