My Life List....



I was browsing though the list of mommy bloggers on momversation.com one day and came upon Karen Walrond. That day her blog post was about making a life list. She had gotten the idea from another mom blogger, Mighty Girl: Maggie Mason. It is a list of 100 things that she wishes to do in her lifetime.

This really intrigued me and though out the day I started reading though Karen's list. Then the next day I came back to her blog and she had another post talking about how to get started making your own life list. I decided then what the hell, I am going to make a life list. Call me crazy, but this mission kind of intimated me. I mean 100 things is alot. But I said that I am up for the challenge and that this is going to be fun.

So here goes my life list:

1. Fly over to California and visit Lisa Harland and Laura Kirkpatrick. Which in one way is really two things because I have never flown before and I really want to visit Lisa since she has flown over here alot to see me.

2.  Spend a week in NYC and go see a Broadway Play!

3. Learn how to sew.

4. Learn how to make the fabric friendship bracelets.

5. Own my own house with Reiggin and Virginia.

6. Travel overseas maybe to London, Ireland, or Greece. Actually make that travel to all three places.

7. Go see Circus Sol La

8, Own my own art cafe/studio space. I am thinking old loft, first level is a art cafe food and music. Then the second level is studio space that artist can rent and use.

9. Join a pool league. I have done a bowling league and now I think a pool league would be fun.

10. Take a cooking class.

11. Take a trip to Alaska.

12. Watch Virginia graduate high school and maybe college and see her get married.

13.  Learn how to spin clay on the potters wheel.

14. I may steal this idea from Karen, but I love the idea of taking 1,000 pictures of faces. This includes kids, adults, and animals.

15.  Have my artwork displayed in a gallery or business.

16. Decorate Virginia's room.

17. Travel and see the Grand Canyon.

18. Plant a garden and not kill everything I plant.

19. Read 20 books in one year.

20.  Make a baby or photo book of Virginia's photos.

21.  Construct a toy box for Virginia all by myself from start to finish.

22.  Start a collection of something. any suggestions will be welcomed.

23. Go Scuba Diving.

24. Stop biting my fingernails.

25.  Travel to Hawaii and go surfing.

26. Attend a Halloween Ball dressed up in a fancy costume.

27. Do a habitat house start to finish.

28. Find a volunteer job that I enjoy and can get involved in.
