So, we're doing this series at church called The Bucket List. You know, a list of things you want to do before the kick the bucket. We were challenged to come up with our own list and bring them to church this Sunday. Thought I would share them all with you! Some are spiritual, some are vain-ish, some are relational and some are plain ol' silly. I'll write explanations behind some and some really don't need explanation! In no particular order...
*Perfect homemade yeast cinnamon rolls. Darin's favorite. =)
*Pay cash for a new Honda Accord someday. We don't believe in car payments so this one might take awhile! My parents did this at 50 so it may take another 20 years for us to be able to do it too!
*Own a pair of $100 jeans. They can totally be used $100 jeans but it'd be icing on the cake if the budget let me splurge on new one's!
*Have Darin's favorite cookies in the freezer 95% of the time for the rest of our lives. Amen.
*Take the girls to Disney World with money I've made from my photography.
*Have Lasik Surgery.. be able to see when I open my eyes in the morning. I can't remember when I could do this.. it was 2nd grade when I got glasses. poo.
*Anonymously pay for someone's meal at a restaurant. This has been done to us a few times and I'd love to pay it forward!
*Swim with dolphins. This is HUGE cuz I hate to swim! But I like dolphins!
*Do a back-hand-spring at age 30 and again at 35. I'll have Darin video tape the one I'll do on July 27th of this year.. I'll post it on the ol' blog. And pretty sure I won't show you the one at 35! It probably isn't going to be pretty!
*Remodel 1 more home and eventually build our dream house and stay in it for the rest of our lives. =) Preferably on a bit of land. Couple acres. My dad still owns the home that they brought me home from the hospital in and I loved not moving much while growing up. But at the same time we've been able to build quite a bit of equity with remodeling homes! It's gunna be a different story with littles now, tho! I think I have one more remodel in me and then I want the process of building a new one. =)
*Run a 5k. Without stopping. I HATE running so I'd love to get this one over and done with asap. Maybe in June at our church's AmazinGrace?
*Have at least 10 scrapbook pages published in magazines. Two down, eight more to go! I guess this would require me submitting my pages for publication? I remember Kayla reminding me of that once.. "Darce, you gotta SUBMIT your pages if you want them picked up!" Um, that girl knows me too well...
*Go to Hawaii with Darin. Just Darin. Ooo-la-la!
*Go back to Acapulco with Darin and relive our honeymoon. Double ooo-la-la!
*Be a coach again. I miss my high-schoolers! And I will only be Adie and Joya's coach if they want me to be! Don't want to hover!
*Have (at least) a 10 second kiss with Darin each and every day for the rest of our lives.
*Have one or both my girls tell me I'm their best friend. This would be sometime AFTER their teen years when hopefully the mothering slows down a bit and we're able to be friends. Mothering, discipline and correction waaaay more important up until then.
*Help my girls plan the wedding of their dreams. Prolly on a budget, of course. =)
*Write a book. Not sure on what.. any ideas?
*Darin and I be the keynote speakers at a marriage retreat. Amen.
So.. what are some of the things on your bucket list?
