My Bucket List

We've all heard of the bucket list, right?  I was nonchalantly perusing some blogs today (OK, OK...I was poring through them like a crazy woman - I'm totally addicted to all things bloggie) and saw that Kathryn over at Eat, Play, Namaste had done a "32 things to do before I turn 32" list.  Kewl!  I'd started a bucket list a few years ago of 101 things to do before I died, but never quite finished it.  I like what Kathryn did so this is going to be my offiical "50 things to do before I turn 50" list!  So here goes, in no particular order:
  1. Complete a marathon
  2. Tour all throughout China
  3. Learn to swim
  4. See the Pyramids of Egypt
  5. Own a dog
  6. Own a cat (this might be difficult since Hubs is deathly allergic)
  7. Get a tattoo (something running related WHEN I run my first marathon)
  8. Take professional cooking lessons - I want to be an amazing cook one day
  9. Qualify for Boston
  10. Run through Central Park in New York
  11. Learn to play the piano
  12. Travel the world on a food tour a la Anthony Bourdain
  13. Own my own business doing something I absolutely love (food/health/running related!)
  14. Plant a veggie garden
  15. Learn how to preserve/can foods
  16. Eat pho in Vietnam
  17. Run the New York Marathon
  18. Volunteer for a food-related cause i.e. food bank, working in a soup kitchen, etc.
  19. Own a piece of John Lennon's art
  20. Learn to walk in stillettos
  21. Own a pair of Manolos
  22. Do a triathlon (must do item #3 first though - heh)
  23. Try hot yoga
  24. Do a proper cartwheel - I could never do these when I was a kid
  25. Learn how to skate
  26. Become a full time blogger
  27. Learn how to make flaky pastry
  28. See the Northern Lights
  29. Go on a crazy girl's trip to Vegas
  30. Do one hundred pushups in a row
  31. Volunter helping seniors
  32. Read 20 classic books
  33. Do the flexed arm hang for 30 seconds - anyone remember this from school?  I'm still traumatized because I couldn't do it at all!
  34. Bake bread from scratch
  35. Work for Lululemon
  36. Have laser eye surgery to improve my vision
  37. Cook my way through a classic cookbook a la Julie and Julia
  38. Go organic
  39. Become garbage free - recycle or compost everything
  40. Do ten chinups in a row
  41. Fill a room with wall to wall cookbooks
  42. Walk the Great Wall of China
  43. Create a vision board
  44. Learn more about yoga i.e. spiritual side
  45. Meet Prince Harry (yes...I have an inappropriate crush on him...I have a thing for redheads!)
  46. See the Dalai Lama
  47. Take up Tai Chi
  48. Go on a cruise
  49. Watch a Formula One race live
  50. Get into awesome physical shape
Hmmm...that was actually easier than I thought!  Once I got going, they started coming a lot easier.  I'm sure I'll be adding to these as times runs along...but a good start.  I also like writing these down and putting it out there because I definitely believe that you attract what you put out to the universe.  Better get busy!

Nice list! They all seem pretty attainable...except maybe Prince Harry. If you swing it though, can I come too? LOL

Awesome list! You have inspired me to create my own list. I keep starting and then getting confused as to what I really want on it.

Thanks for the shout out Cindy! Your bucket list sounds awesome (I'm super jealous of all the travel!)
