Bucket List for 2012


Happy 2012 

Welcome to my second consecutive bucket list, or resolutions, posting. Lisa, from Baby, You Can’t Drive My Car, inspired me to create this list. She’s had one for nine years. Lisa is cool like that.

So this is how my (bucket) list of resolutions works: I post my list — things I’d like to accomplish, things I’ve been putting off, things I’d like to acquire or do, and things I’ve done before and want to continue ~ and then I provide a monthly update to track my progress. I’m also including a monthly resolution in the mix ….. I’m adding spice to my life.

The Mayans said we’re all going to die in 2012, right? Well, if that’s indeed true, then I’m making 2012 my bitch. Oh Yeah!

Join the fun and post your resolutions by adding a link to the bottom of the page.

  11. I LOVE your bucket list. Once again, I’m going to have to copy some! 🙂

  12. I can help you out with that take pictures for someone one. Collin needs senior pictures made…soon. While he’s still a senior!! ???

  13. I am impressed you have Rocky Mountain Oysters on your list! Getting some sort of e-reader will DEFINITELY help with your reading goals! Happy New Year!!!

    • Thanks for visiting, Dana!!! About them Rocky Mountain oysters … I’m a country girl through-and-through, and I’ve made more mud pies than I can count, but I’ve never ever ever ever tried (or even considered trying!) them. Oh gosh, what am I getting myself into?!?! HAHAHAHAHA

  15. Head to VB in July or August, and I can help you out with that ocean one, for sure. =)

    • I’m seeing a pattern here ….. what was that Christmas movie where the two girls (Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet) switched homes for a week?!?! We ought to do that, only my Hubby Dearest hates to travel and go on vacation. You might be stuck with him. HAHAHA!!!!!!


  16. very nice bucket list, Nicole…I should make one for myself, but my resolution was ‘not to make any resolutions..

    • Thanks, Wilma! I like to think of my list as something to aspire to acquire or accomplish, rather than a stressful, unattainable, unrealistic goal. We’ll see what actually happens, I have 364 days to figure it out!!!!!


Let me know what you think. I read and enjoy each and every one of your comments!!
