I’ve been hearing about people writing bucket lists these days.  Things you want to do in this life before your time is up.  I decided this is my year to create one.  I went all out and searched the internet for all things I could think of and added them to my list.  I hope that you are allowed to keep adding things to your list as they come up.  If you have a bucket list on your blog somewhere leave the link in the comments and I just might steal some of your things!!!  I was tempted to put things on there that I had already done just so I could cross them out.  I mean things just look good when you cross them off.  adopt a childtravel to another countrygo on a cruiserun a half marathonbecome a vegetariango to the top of the statue of libertyvisit NYCbe on CNNget a big tattoo.

Below is a picture of my kids acting like they are in a band.  Maybe I should add that to my bucket list.  I could be the Ivey brothers manager.  🙂
