Bucket List

   Yes, I have tons of LOs to share with you all, but I feel like I've only been posting about digital scrapbooking lately, so thought I'd give ya'll, me dear friends, some personal insight. Inspired by my wonderful friend Star, here is my very much impromptu, unofficial

Bucket List

1.  Finish my degree (OMG, this is taking forever. Someone get me off my butt!)
2.  Be out of debt (this is kind of hard with #1. Student loans for the rest of my life. For reals. And owning a house kinda makes this one hard, too.)
3. Be financially stable (This seems easier than #2. Not easy, but easier...)
4. Instill in my daughter how important education and learning are without sending her over the deep end.
5. Keep my happy marriage happy.
6. Go to Nova Scotia. (My love of NS started with Anne of Green Gables.)
7. Learn how to use my digital camera really well. Like out of auto mode.
8. Read Atlas Shrugged. I've tried. Honest I have. I just can't seem to make it past the first 20 pages!
9. Meet...somebody famous.
10. Buy a dSLR and learn how to use it (yes, I know I just typed #7, but SOMEDAY I WILL have a dSLR!)
11. Go to Disneyland (yes, Disneyworld is closer to me, but if we go to Disneyland, my sisters will be closer and their whole families can come, too!)
12.Do karaoke. Yes, I'm a singer. No, I've never done karaoke. (My Missouri friends...help a sister out!)
13. Take my Mom to Rome. (She's fascinated by all things Catholic...well, religions in general).
14.Learn digital scrapbooking even better. Yeah, I kinda know what I'm doing, but there's always room for improvement.
15. Throw a successful surprise party. (Sounds fun, huh?!)
16. Be a Cardinals Baseball season ticket holder.
17. Grow a vegetable garden.
18. Write a children's book.
19. Refurbish/refinish and old set of furniture.
20. Be in the audience at the Ellen Show (I know, right, Star!!!)
21. Get a total makeover by someone who really know what they're doing. Clothes, makeup, hair. The works.
22. Exercise at the gym/exercise class/some form of exercise for 6 months straight.
23. Learn to cook steak well.

I'll be adding and crossing things off this list for a while. This is all I could come up with right now. I'm sure there's quite a few important things I'm forgetting...


  1. There are two things that Paul and I could help you with on your list....he grills the worlds best steak, I think....and if there is adult beverage involved, he is awesome on the karaoke stage. I guess it sounds like Paul could help you..not me so much, lol. This is a great list, and hopefully you have about 70 years to get it all done!

  2. Love this Kate! I think I'm gonna change my "be in the audience of Ellen" to "be in the audience of Ellen with Kate!" :)
    Maybe my next trip to Disneyland might be at the same time as yours lol ;)
    Love your list!
