You've got some good things on your list; yeah, I'd say you'd need to marry rich although the lottery would bring less baggage! LOL

My bucket list would be very short but it would include visiting each of the 50 states at least once, meeting my NS friends, and quitting my job. Well, maybe the job thing should be first! (I wouldn't do the donut shop ... too much temptation. LOL)

I love this list!! Haha especially the one about finding a Scottish man in a kilt :) What an amazing idea, though - this list. The best thing is, when you start ticking some off, then all the rest will be equally possible.

Side note - I remember when I was going to Florence, I saw an ad for a 5 day Tuscan cookery course and was so tempeted. Was only passing through Italy so couldn't do it but can you imagine how amazing that would be.

My number one thing is to become healthy and physically fit so that my husband and I can start a family. My body is my temple, and for nine months, my body will also be my child's temple. I need to make it as nice a possible for him or her.

Another thing on my list - run the Disney marathon in January of 2011.

I think you're a very neat lady! I've been blessed by your blog this morning. I read your bucket list and we have so many of the same goals and desires... the things we want to achieve in this life, to experience. #15 breaks my heart, It is something I want to do as well and I have felt such an overwelming guilt over not achieving that yet. I am looking forward to hearing about the things you acomplish on your list and I'm motivated to update and post my bucket list as well. I hope you wake each day feeling renewed!
