Bucket List Update

A year ago, Mister and I created a list of things we'd like to do before we die.  Morbid or inspiring, you decide.  We chose the latter, and have slowly (and mostly unconsciously) ticked a few items off our checklist.


  • Scratching off #6 was easier than expected.  And more fun, too.


  • #5, in which Mister promised to visit all of the MWC stadiums may need editing, as his alma mater no longer belongs to the conference.  I'm much more excited to visit the PAC-12 stadiums, primarily up and down California.


  • I forgot I put #40 (growing vegetables we actually eat) on the list, because I was too distracted this summer tending our new vegetable garden.  We definitely ate our spoils, too, from carrot cake to beet salad to zucchini fritters, zucchini bread, steamed zucchini...


  • I'm working on #44 (compiling my grandmother's life history), diligently scanning and interviewing, but it is a TON of work.  Fun and rewarding, nonetheless.  This one will take a long time, I'm afraid.

We are still a few short of a round 50.  What's on your list?
