Bucket List for 2012 & Beyond (Mostly Beyond)

Hello everyone,

Hope you all had a lovely New Years! We didn't do much - just hung out with a couple friends and sipped champagne. But it was nice. :) We did have Christmas with Mr. G's family earlier in the day on NYE and had a great time. Nashville was wonderful, too. We have a guest bed now as well as some other awesome things. For example: between both of our families, we've doubled our everyday dishes and china this Christmas! Funny what you get excited about after you're married...

I don't really have any resolutions this year, but I thought I would go ahead and post my (ever-growing) bucket list in honor of the new year, even though these are not specific to 2012. I'll probably think of a hundred more things after I post this, but here is what I have so far:

  • Visit every continent (except Antarctica)
  • See the Northern lights
  • Go on a missions trip (perhaps later this year?...)
  • Have children
  • Adopt a child
  • Buy a house
  • Buy a car
  • Start a business
  • Write a book
  • Go scuba diving
  • Take a cake decorating class
  • Make homemade lobster bisque (boil the lobster and all)
  • Buy something designer full-price
  • Invent a recipe
  • Learn how to sew (well, re-learn)
  • Have a garden
  • Own a boat
  • Stay at a bed and breakfast
  • Become trilingual
  • Go to the Olympics (as a viewer, not an athlete...)
  • Run a marathon
  • Participate in a flash mob
  • Be able to fit in my wedding dress forever :)

I know I say this every year, but 2011 really will be tough to beat... New home, new job, first full year of marriage... It was a good year to us. :) May this year bring you joy, peace and many blessings. Cheers to 2012!

I took Mr. G to a Minnesota Wild game as a Christmas gift :)

  1. OK, at first, I thought that list was things you wanted to accomplish in 2012 and I was like hells bells woman!!! What's your hurry!!! I wish you guys lived here, there is a cake decorating class at the Viking School in the Factory that I want to take but I don't want to do it alone :( Also, I'd get excited about place settings too, and I'm not married... so I don't think getting excited about things like that has to do with your marital status it just has to do with the fact that we are nerds. Glad 2011 was awesome and I hope 2012 is too! For BOTH of us... maybe the year I get engaged?? Cross your fingers. ha ha

  2. Haha yeah I worried people would think that when I posted this... I should probably clarify more. Especially when it comes to kids - not exactly a goal for 2012. I'm crazy excited about my place settings, as well as my other kitchen items. I'm asking for a stand mixer for my birthday... So yeah, I guess I am a nerd. :) I'll be on the lookout for your invitation sometime this year! ;)
