What’s On YOUR Bucket List? Da Vinci’s 25 Goals To Living Her Life After 25

We’ve all heard of the movie “The Bucket List” which talks about 2 men who are fulfilling a list of things they would like to do before they die. Now although death is a grim thing to think about for some, living definitely is not. I don’t like to think about the bucket list as things to do before I die, I like to think of it as a list of things to do to have a more exciting, fulfilling, and enjoyable life.

Da Vinci


With that said I decided to make a bucket list of 25 things and to share it with you all. I hope it will get you all thinking about your own list and encourage you to start living your life to the fullest, after all You Only Life Once!!!

A few things still remaining are: Find true love (kids, pets, & grandkids don’t count) Go to the Outback (No, the real Outback in the land of Oz, not the food joint) Win the HGTV dream house (just one time) Teach myself to grow a bountiful garden and share with neighbors (I tried last year but didn’t get enough bounty to eat myself, let alone share. The rabbits even hopped right by) Kneel before our Nation’s capitol & thank God that I lived to see the day that USA soldiers all came marching home and enjoying our freedom because there is no wars to fight.

    • Sandie Aliprantis

      Oh Laurie,

      I didn’t win the Dream House, but I won a sweepstakes to view the Dream House in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It was sponsored by Silestone (the countertop people). What a wonderful trip that was. And HGTV and Silestone are really nice companies.
