Bucket List

Today is my 31st birthday. So far I think the 30's are kicking the 20's ass. I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and those of you who shopped got some great deals.

This past summer Bret, the kids, and I went with his family to Hawaii to celebrate his graduation. It was the most amazing trip any of us has ever taken. The kids still talk about all of the amazing things we did and got to see. Palmer regularly asks Bret when we are going back. He has a list of what he wants to do again when we do.

One of the awesome things that Bret and I did was go scuba diving. We got certified while we were still living in PA. That experience deserves a post all it's own.

This was one of the many things on my bucket list. Life is so full and amazing. I hope to live every single day to the very fullest savoring the little things. So for my 31st birthday post here is 31 things off of my bucket list that I have yet to complete.
