A Life List

I am a firm believer in chasing dreams, if you couldn't already tell by my header! I think it's important to seize moments and live life to the fullest. I've been creating lists of things that I've wanted to do in this lifetime for the past few years. It has changed and adapted as time goes on. However, the one thing that hasn't changed is my desire to keep chasing dreams, no matter how big. I realize that I may not accomplish all in this lifetime, but I'm sure going to try!

Here are 25 things I want to do in this lifetime; in no particular order!

1. Go to a taping of the Ellen show {if I can ever get tickets!}

2. Trying a latte for the first time.

3.  Go on an African Safari.

4. Grow my own garden.

5. Learn how to use a monogram machine.

6. Re-learn the Spanish language.

7. Do something that scares me.

8. Ride The Tube in London.

9. Be a maid of honor

10. Be in two places at once.

11. Learn how to cook a gourmet meal.

12. Make a ten-layer cake, just for fun.

13. Learn how to play the guitar.

14. Go camping and learn how to pitch a tent.

15. Volunteer in Haiti.

16. Dance in the rain.

17. Visit the Grand Canyon.

18. Ride on an elephant.

19. Own a home.

20. Go to Costa Rica

21. Own a dress line

22. Keep a gratitude journal for 5 years.

23. See the Eiffel Tower at night.

24. Be front row at a concert.

25. Change a stranger's life.

I'm going to continue to add to my list as well as cross things off as I accomplish them!

What is ONE thing you want to accomplish in this lifetime?


  1. I also believe in chasing dreams and love this post. I have a bucket list and one thing on there is to be able to work for myself. To make an income of my own doing not for someone's else's company!


  2. How have you not tried a latte yet?! Get your hiney to your local coffee shop and ask for an Earl Grey Tea Latte! This has been my go-to as of late, I just love it. It's sometimes added with a touch of vanilla syrup too. I know that for my family, we would love to visit Scotland one day.

  3. I want to go sky-diving!!!
    If I only had the courage to do it.:/haha

  4. I currently have two dreams in life:
    1. Have a garage - this is how I will know I have made it in life, when I don't have to preheat my car on these cold mornings!!
    2. Own my own coffee shop - nothing makes me happier than coffee and I think I would save money if I just owned my own shop.

    I'm also with you on the guitar thing, although I think I want to play the piano! Happy weekend!


  5. I could never pick just one thing. I have too many hopes and dreams. I've tried writing a list and I'm somewhere around 80 things that all include lots and lots of travelling. The point is to keep "chasing" the dreams though, right? Good luck with all of the dreams you are chasing!!

  6. Check out the following website to volunteer in Haiti - a wonderful non-profit:
