    Good luck girl!

    (You possibly might be inspiring me to start a bucket list of my own…if I'll stop being lazy. Hmm…could that be the first thing on my bucket list? Ha!)


  2. Hey Jessi

    Love your blog!

    I started my list about a year ago after losing my 2nd parent in 9 months. We seem to already share a lot of our list items, though I have ticked a lot off that you want to try-all were worth doing! That said-I am a 30-something person-so have a considerable head start on you! LOL

    My list is here:

    So far in a year, I have managed to achieve a lot including (deep breath):
    Sky Dive for charity (the hospice who cared for my Dad)
    Aerobatic Flying Lesson
    Helicopter Lesson
    Visit Las Vegas
    Ride the Stratosphere Rides
    Zip-line from the top of Red Mountain
    Hike through the Valley of Fire
    Visit Thailand
    Ride an Elephant
    Bungee Jump into a lake
    Do a Catapult Bungee
    Take my kids to Disney
    Experience Weightlessness in a floatation Tank
    Tour the Hoover Dam
    Fly through the Grand Canyon in a helicopter
    Camp in a Tipi (at Grand Canyon Ranch)

    Stay in the Bellagio
    Eat at The Top of The World revolving restaurant
    Visit Sea World

    I do believe that making the list and starting the blog has been so inspirational, and I’m so glad to have stumbled across yours too!!!
