the most boring bucket list you ever did see...

earlier this summer, during vacation bible school, i had a very intriguing conversation with some girlfriends.  apparently, they all had bucket lists.  summer bucket lists.  kids bucket lists. 

everyone had a list of some sort. 

i got to work. and it was grueling.  i discovered i'm a fairly boring individual.  and despite my best efforts, i could not come up with 100 things on my bucket list. 

no where close. 

but, i do have some good things on the list.  things that are my heart's desire.  things that i should have tried long ago. 

so, without further delay, in no particular order, i share with you my riveting bucket list.   no need to chuckle...i am comfortable in the fact that i am a rather sheltered, less than interesting gal.  but i have a whole list to change that...
