My Bucket List Begins

I have always loved the idea of a bucket list, although I don't know that I love what it's called.  I prefer to view it as a goals list.  At any rate, I've been reading a lot lately, and I've begun thinking about things I'd like to do before I die.  (You didn't read that.  I never said it.  I'll deny it till I die LOL.)  I'm going to start it now, but I'll most likely add to it as time goes by.

Mellanie's Bucket List

1.  Ride a zip line
2.  Visit a ghost town
3.  Visit England, Ireland, Paris, and other parts of Europe
4.  Read all the books on a "100 Greatest Books of All Time" list
5.  Get a book published for pay
6.  Have 6 months' savings in the bank
7.  Learn how to crochet granny squares
8.  Take a cruise to Alaska
9.  Swim with dolphins
10.  Act in a play again
11.  Have grandchildren (no pressure, Hillary and Evan!)
12.  See Niagara Falls (I don't know why I've had such a burning desire to do this for a while now...)
13.  Have a lifestyle lift when my surgeries are done and I weigh less than 150 pounds again (yes, I'm vain)
14.  Have my teeth professionally whitened (and re-capped, if necessary)
15.  Learn sign language
16.  Be in a movie or TV show
17.  Take horseback riding lessons

I'm going to stop there because it's enough to be going on with for the moment.  Some of these could be pretty easy to do.  I'm looking forward to checking items off and adding to my list.
