  1. Hi! I am new to your blog and I love your bucket list! So many good things to look forward to and work towards! Bora Bora and Oktoberfest are on my list, too! :)

  2. Fantastic list!!! I had a "30 before 30" list and I loved crossing things off as I went along!

    I'm now following you through Fun Follow Friday! I hope you'll do the same! You can find me @

    Sofia's Ideas

  3. Hey, I found you on the MilSpouse Blog Hop [I'm hosting next week's] ... I've gotta say, that's QUITE a list you have going! I was a SoCal Princess to the max living it up in Orange County ... and then my husband found out we were PCSing to MAINE! o.O I couldn't possibly have gotten farther from my "homeland" if I tried. :P

    Learning to live in the snow? That comes with practice. Learning to ski/snowboard will absolutely make the snowy cold weather less boring. And snowshoeing! That's on my list of things to do this winter. Good luck with crossing off as many things as possible on your list! :))


Leave some love, let me know there's people reading!
