So, here we are checking in on past bucket lists and making additions and modifications as necessary. Bucket lists are kind of my jam. I think they are great for goal setting, but also FUN stuff. My bucket lists may be a little different than others. I have local bucket lists of places I want to eat, bucket lists of things I want to do and achieve, and obviously, places I want to go. The whole premise of starting this blog was that life is FUN and wanting to document it.
Here’s a look back at my bucket list from last summer.
2. Start my own Private Practice – Sort of in the process of doing so! I currently do see clients in the Charlotte area and VIRTUALLY! I’m working on making a more official site, so look for that in the coming months.
3. Go sky diving
4. Hike part of the Appalachian Trail
5. Go on a 50 mile bike ride
6. Host an epic dinner party – I’ve been to some, but haven’t hosted yet!
7. Start a garden
8. Try cross country skiing
9. Do a sprint triathalon
10. Brew my own kombucha – This has been on my mind lately, but still haven’t tried it
11. Stay in a bed and breakfast in Maine and explore Acadia National Park
12. Take a hot air balloon ride (over somewhere pretty, like here)
13. Drive across the country
14. Make pasta from scratch. Gotta do it once, right?
15. Go deep sea fishing
16. Have kids – Coming April 2018
17. Make my own sushi
18. Adopt a rescue dog – She wasn’t exactly a rescue dog, but we have Tater! I can’t believe how little she once was.
19. Food tour in Charlotte (crazy to think I haven’t done this yet)
20. Visit Alaska, Bora Bora, New Zealond, Switzerland, Ireland, Greece (and many more) – Going to South Africa later this month!
21. Do a marathon in another country (perhaps this one).
23. Say YES for an entire week (Isn’t this a challenge, but fun to think about?)
24. Go sailing
26. Take a cooking class – I took one here, but hope to do another!
27. Learn more about wine
28. Reteach myself to play the piano
29. Be a mentor to someone
30. See the Northern Lights
So, I’d say I’m doing okay. Still a lot left to do and accomplish, which is exciting to me. Although, as the family expands, I realize some of these goals may take longer than anticipated. Here’s an updated fall/winter bucket list.
Fall and Winter 2017 Bucket List
Fun Bucket List
- Carve pumpkins – did that last weekend!

- Make a snowman (I haven’t done this in forever!)
- Cuddle up to a fire and some hot chocolate
- Buy gifts for the less fortunate and donate them
- Volunteer somewhere
- Go to a new local farmer’s market (As much as I love my local one, there’s a bigger one down in Charlotte I should get to).
- Go to a cooking class
- Try a new workout – spin? Don’t think I’m ready for prenatal yoga yet, but something different would be nice.
