My Bucket List

Today's Mama is hosting an a.maz.ing giveaway here. At first, I thought I would skip it since I know tons of people will enter this one, but on second thought I became very intrigued for two reasons:

1. The giveaway is to spread awareness about JustAsk. Here's what they have to say:

"Our friends at Just Ask want you to stay around for a good long while so you can cross epic activities and life-changing achievements off that list of yours. That’s why they’ve developed a test that could save your life—the BRACAnalysis test—by informing you about your chances of getting breast or ovarian cancer. Think of all of the things on your bucket list? Got ‘em? Now jot them down for a shot at winning a trip of a lifetime."

Pretty cool, right!

2. I like the idea of composing a 'bucket list'. After all, if you aim at nothing you'll hit it every time, right?

This is my entry in the Just Ask Bucket List Getaway Giveaway. Just Ask offers a breast and ovarian cancer screening and is encouraging people to share 15 things that I want to enjoy in my lifetime as a reminder to be aware of my health. Want to enter? Head over to TodaysMama.com to get the details.

So, here's my list:

1. I want to live long enough to impact the lives of my children and their children--not to just be alive, but be healthy and Godly enough to impact their lives in a positive way.
2. I would love to go on an Alaskan cruise with my husband. Ocean, the man I love, gorgeous surroundings, and lots of awesome food. *Sigh.*
3. I want to go to a lobster bake. On the beach. In Maine. And I want to eat until I pop!
4. I want to write and publish a book.
5. I would love to start my own (successful) craft business or etsy shop. I already have the name picked out.
6. I want to organize my house. My whole house. And keep it that way.
7. I want to make this for my Family Room wall:

8. I want to make regular exercise a habit.
9. I want to learn how to knit, really knit.

10. And then I want to knit one of those adorable baby hats. And maybe a scarf for me.
11. I want to redecorate my kitchen. Yellow and red.
12. I want to eat at Red's Eats in Wiscassett, Maine. Best.lobster roll.anywere. Seriously. *I'm drooling here!*

13. I want to own one of these:

14. Someday, I am going to make and eat this (pure yumness, People!):

15. And, most importantly, I want to make every day count. Not for every day, but for eternity. Seriously.

So, what's on your bucket list? Write it down and link it to Today's Mama, and you could win one of the following prizes:

A family vacation to Universal Orlando® Resort! (+ prize rules)
A Las Olas Surf Safari!
Family Winter Vacation Getaway at Park City Mountain Resort
And more!

Contest closes on Saturday, November 12th at Noon MST. Winners will be announced Monday, November 14th.

Even if I don't win, taking the time to write down a few goals is always beneficial! Give it a try. And then link it up here at Today's Mama.

Who knows...maybe you'll win and be able to cross that dream getaway off your list!
