Sorry Not Sorry For Being A Little Selfish; I Have Some Amazing bucket List Wishes

What is a bucket list?

A bucket list is a list of wishes, places, things to do, achievements, basically anything that a person really wants in their lifetime.

Being a mom, I know how hard it is to make time for anything else besides work and family. However, we all have one life to live and I think it is important to make the most of it.

Welcome to my world as a christian mother (who also has a full-time job). A world that consists of me praying, working, cleaning, blogging, parenting, eating and pooping. Not to get too personal, but despite my busy lifestyle I still love my life.

Some Christian parenting advice; recently I promised myself that I would be a little more selfish. That I would create a some free time to do things I’ve always wanted to do, try, and learn. So that I can continue to be a happy mommy and love motherhood. It has been the best thing for my family.

What’s a great way to live your dream? Come up with some cool bucket list ideas.

  1. Travel out of the country. Preferably somewhere with castles.
  2. Time travel, this will probably never happen but it’s fun to dream.
  3. Read the whole Bible within a year.
  4. Be on on a reality t.v. show, even if I am the first one “voted off”.
  5. Get an expensive gym membership so I’m forced to go there at least twice a week. Mostly use the hot tub while I’m there and take long showers.
  6. Win a big prize of some sort.
  7. Reach 100,000 monthly viewers on my blog.
  8. Be a contestant on a game show.
  9. Become really, really good at an instrument.
  10. Learn a different language, one that sounds sexy.
  11. Get my mom to teach me how she sews so well.
  12. Learn how to contour! I love makeup.
  13. Have a dachshund named Jack who is secretly my best friend.
  14. Run a marathon. (Here is another cute dog picture for you, you’re welcome.)
  15. Learn to love spinach and anything green.
  16. Formulate a new wine that makes me feel better in the morning.
  17. Take singing lessons that make me sound like Celine Dion.
  18. Take the time to find recipes that take little time to make.
  19. Also, take the time to get to know my husband more. We are always SO BUSY.
  20. Find the perfect lipstick. I’ve only gotten close with the NYX Matte Lipstick, so close.
  21. Learn how to dance, well.
  22. Stay at the Mall of America, all day. Drink wine, shop, see a movie, get my nails done, hair did, etc. Then spend the night at their hotel so I don’t have to be responsible. (Can you tell that I’m from Minnesota?)
  23.  Finish my time travel book, I’m only seventy pages in.
  24. Make a blog post that speaks to women across the globe.

Well, there you have it. A completely random, half serious and half funny bucket list. It’s genuine and from my heart.
