Our Good Life's Top Ten Things to Try

Yum
I read a wonderful post by The Craft of Laughter and it inspired me to do this post.  In their post they talk about stepping out of your comfort zone and feeling the exhilaration of trying new things.  For us, it may be more of just broading our lives and deepening our commitment to be the best we can be. Looking at our bucket list, here are the things we want to do before the end of next summer.  So without further ado, there are our top five for each of us:


Bob's Top Five



1. Start a book
2. Save money for a trip to one or more of the following events: Masters Golf Tournament, a NASCAR Race, Kentucky Derby, College Baseball World Series, Packers Game at Lambaugh
3. Save money for a trip to one or more of the following destinations: Napa Valley, Spain, Italy, ​Alaskan Cruise, France, European Cruise, Ireland/Scotland 
4. Save money to do one or more of the following activities: really cool hot air balloon ride, sky dive
5. Go on a trip, or to an event, or complete an activity listed above


Terri's Top Five


1.  Write my children's book.  *whew, said it out loud and wrote it on paper.  Scary.
2.  Learn some type of yoga.
3.  Take a painting class and paint a landscape.
4.  Travel to Cabo San Lucas for our 40th wedding anniversary.
5.  Travel to Disney World during the Christmas season.

In all fairness, we had planned a couple of these things already but they were on our bucket list and we are doing them, so we wanted to include them.

What bucket list item are you putting off?  How can I inspire you to make the leap?

  1. I like your Cabo idea! But - I also think you should do your childrens book. Step by step and all of a sudden you've reached your goal! Good luck!

  2. I see Travel in your future : )
    I love your #1 You should do it!!!!!
    We love Bucket Lists we make one usually for the colder seasons Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. but also start on at the beginning of the year not resolutions but we pick a word and also start a list. So fun.
    Have you heard of vision boards, I'm thinking of trying them next year. but I've got to have lists! to do, bucket, brain dump, etc. I like to cross things off lol I am reminded of the saying "Failure to Plan is Planning to Fail" Have a great week

  4. BOB! I feel you about Lambeau! I am in driving distance of Green Bay. I have actually been to the field for a tour and visit to the Packers hall of fame (very cool - do it). It was so neat to see Vince Lombardi's office and all the Lombardi trophies! #GoPackGo Tickets for an actual game are so hard to come by, unless you have the greens to pay for it. If you come up in the Summer for a tour, you have to stop at Bay Beach! It is an old time amusement park and the rides cost maybe 50 cents to ride. It is so cute!

  9. I was just thinking the other day that I needed to sit down and make some sort of bucket list. I always say that I'll do it "when things calm down", but they never do. The time is now! :) Thanks for sharing this.

  10. I love that both of you included traveling to different places or attractions. It's really nice to be able to do that, especially when you're really stressed out. I love the places that you picked as well.
