Monday Madness: The bucket list meme

EDIT: Shame on me! I got this list from Haley over at The Beacon!

I’ve wanted to create my own bucket list for a while now, but I never seem to get around to actually doing it. But its better to check items off an existing list rather than not check any items off of any list at all. So when I saw Lisa got this meme from Haley, who got it from Aerten’s Blah Blah Blah blog. I thought I better yoink it before I forget or before the ‘right time’ passes me by again.
