    Becky, I love your bucket list! I have a bunch of the same things! I have currently own a drive a stick shift 🙂 Haven’t done the marathon… but I did finish a 1/2 marathon so I guess I’m on the way

    So happy that you comment on my blog because it led me over to you 🙂

      Theresa, thank you for stopping by! I’m proud of you for running a half marathon! You go girl! What other bucket list items do you have?

      • Theresa AMomInTheMaking says:

        Hmmm… Does get more sleep count? I want to build my own house with lots of windows and live in the country. I would also like to grow my own food mostly blueberries, strawberries and cherries 🙂

        When did you come up with your bucket list? Do you keep adding to it? I think it is a great idea for your blog

          Get more sleep is a great one! J Are you writing my bucket list? I would LOVE to live in the country and I am currently growing my own food…squash, tomatoes, strawberries, etc (come back on Monday to see the garden update)
          I just keep adding to my bucket list. Honestly, I started it when I was about 20, and so anytime a new idea comes up, I just add to it!
