Okay so I can't make it to 100 I felt like I was forcing it. I have been writing this list since July and I can only get this much But I think 85 is good too. Hoping to get all of this done.
Now going to share with my hubbie! (ok so I tweaked it since and now we have 91)

Have you ever thought of making a life list or inspiration list or bucket list? Of course it doesn't have to be 100 long it could be shorter see here
What would it look like?
Would you share it with your significant other

I think it would be a great way to bond! What say you?!


  1. When you go to live in another country for three months, can my family house sit for you? Sort of kidding, but maybe serious. I really like your list, because you seem to care about your children and want to teach them what you care about in the time that you have them. Could you paint for your childrens books? That would check off two things as once!

  2. I love #26 on your list! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog :)

  3. This is inspiring me to make my own list! Thanks for reading my blog♥
