on the bucket list.

i've started a bucket list. it's small, and i add to it as i think of things, but i thought i should at least start writing them down. sometimes i feel silly writing down the things i want to do or the dreams i have, but i think it's important. it's important to dream, to have something to look forward to, and to have something to work towards...no matter how silly or trivial they may seem. so here we go!



1. see both the lion king and wicked on broadway
2. climb a 14er
3. travel across the british isles
4. roadtrip across the US of A
5. learn how to paddleboard (AKA hone my balance skills)
6. attend a concert at red rocks amphitheater
7. be the voice of a character in an animated film, a disney film, of course (a girl can dream, right?)
8. see the tonight show with jimmy fallon live/just hang out with jimmy fallon at any point in time
9. run my own full-fledged print shop
10. see needtobreathe in concert
11. see mumford and sons in concert
12. go swimming with dolphins
13. release a paper lantern into a sea of paper lanterns
14. stay in a tree house for a night...or more
15. move to colorado

and many, many more to come...

WHAT'S ON YOUR LIST?

Great list!! #8! Yes... bonus if Justin Timberlake is there and they do another history of rap. NeedtoBreathe=best concerts! They're from my college town-ish, so they started playing in local spots but it's also so fun seeing them in big venues! And Mumford! I recommend seeing them in an outdoor theater.... something about being outside made it that much better! And #15. Yes please! Even though I've never been... just hearing things from friends makes us want to move there too!

Great list! The last one is super exciting! I've never been to Colorado (it's on the bucket list!) but I have always thought I would love it there.

Robyn Black said...

awesome list! maybe you'll get a spot in Frozen 2! ;)

Gina Alyse said...

Oh, I love the tree house one! I might steal it--it sounds so magical! :) And sign me up for swimming with dolphins too!


xo, gina

Paige Williams said...

I want to stay in a treehouse too! Seeing Jimmy Fallon live would be awesome as well. :) Your list is awesome. Going to Iceland, Oregon, Washington, and Italy are on my bucket list.

Ashlee Keech said...

There is a b&b in Washington that is a tree house; I've been wanting to go since we moved up here!

Madison said...

Oh, you would LOVE Needtobreathe in concert. Can I just point out that I'm listening to Rivers in the Wasteland right now? When I saw Needtobreathe the first time I didn't know them at all, but I fell in love after that concert!

Lauren Doxey Packer said...

Kristina said...

I love your bucket list! Number 6 is my favorite. I walked across the stage at Red Rocks on my graduation day but I've never seen a concert there. It's definitly a must do for my next trip to beautiful Colorado :)

Chantel Klassen said...

Jess Elyse said...

I love lists in general and bucket lists are just fun to have to dream about life. My bucket list usually had items that seem unattainable, but yours are so good and doable!


These are also on my list: #4, #6, #8!!!, #11, #13. I've accomplished #10 and hope you get to as well! They are so, so, so good! But, I'm a bit biased because they are like my favorite. You could travel to Alabama in September and come with me to see them! I'm hoping to see them again this fall. :)

Megan McIlvaine said...

ah! so fun. :) they are going to be in knoxville and atlanta and nashville over the summer/fall and i'm hoping to catch one of those shows!

Amy said...

i will go with you to broadway!
"climb a 14er" i want to know what this is..a hike? a mountain?
oh. needtobreathe - i've seen them...hmm...7 times in concert ;) they live in charleston btw ;)
you can cross swim with the dolphins off here too - dolphins in the river by my grandparents house!
we also have a tree house (Tractor shed) that is awesome...make it happen
basically i just prooved to you that you need to come here...preferably in the fall so that staying in the tree house doesn't also mean death from a heat stroke haha

Laura Kyle said...

#4, #5, #12, #14 -- I'm right there with you!!!! So much fun stuff on this list!!!

Megan McIlvaine said...

yeah like hike a mountain that's 14,000 feet tall or more (like pike's peak!)
you are making a very good case for charleston :) sounds magical!
hahaha i laughed out loud at your heat stroke comment. for reals...the south will suffocate you.

Megan McIlvaine said...

yay! thanks girl. :)

Jenna Secrist said...

I love this! Roadtripping across the country and staying overnight in a treehouse are on my list, too! My sister stayed in a treehouse hotel type thing in Tennessee, and she said it was such a neat experience.

Megan McIlvaine said...

oooh where in tennessee?? i should check it out!

Carrie Hurd said...

I just moved to Colorado and got tickets to Kings of Leon and Young the Giant at Red Rocks this fall! DO IT! I love #7, dream big girl! #'s 1, 2 and 13 are on my list too!

Megan McIlvaine said...
