A list for the bucket

7 Dec

This blog post is allllll about me… just the way I like it. 🙂 These are the things I would like to do before I buy the farm, push up daises, or kick the bucket. I was inspired after reading someone else’s bucket list and I felt like sharing mine with all of you. My OCD tendencies are forcing me to go to a nice round, even number. So here are the top 30 things I would like to do before I die. In no particular order.

1. Get married. (I figured I’d get that one of the way since we all know it’s sort of the elephant in the room and it doesn’t really fit, much like my ego, the Scottish likes to joke.)

2. Have 2.5 kids, at least one girl and one boy.

3. Publish a book. Or two.

4. Perform on the Steppenwolf or Goodman Stage. Ahhhhh-mazing.

5. Visit Melbourne, Australia to see if it can live up to the hype my Scottish has given it.

6. Be a guest on the Rosie O’Donnell show. (This was recently made so much easier when she started her second talk-show for the OWN network and hello, she lives in Chicago!)

7. Flip a house. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the term, a flip means to buy a run-down, fixer-upper, renovate and upgrade the entire house, and then sell it for a profit. Wham, bam, thank-you-Ma’am style.

8. Be a landlord.

9. Own a Dyson vacuum.

10. Discover a new hobby.

11. Lives somewhere warm.

12. Sing soprano in an opera.

13. Turn my blog into a relationship advice column of sorts.

14. Buy a home in Chicago with the Scottish.

15. Buy a vacation home. Anywhere.

16. Completely gut and replace my parent’s entire kitchen with high-end everything.

17. Pay off all of my student loan debt!!! (Someday, God willing….)

18. Have a job that requires me to wear business casual clothing.

19. Lose 20 lbs.

20. Make a difference in the education system.

21. Take my mom swimming with the dolphins.

22. Direct a full-length production.

23. Act in a full-length film.

26. Be on a TLC wedding show.

27. Visit an orphanage.

28. Take my kids to Arches National Park, Disney World, Minnesota, North Dakota, Scotland, Australia, and everywhere…

29. Laser-remove all my leg hair so I never have to shave again.

30. Expect less. Forgive more. Love always.
