“Just Ask” Life List Twitter Party

Last August I wrote a brief post about the fifteen things I’d like to do in my lifetime or what some people refer to as a “bucket list.”  Some readers told me that the list was unattainable while others encouraged me to not only add more to it, but to get moving crossing things off of it!  A list with only fifteen?  A cake walk! Creating that list was a fun experience in the final days of summer, but now I’d like to share something a bit more serious with you while I add to my own list.

My latest additions…

1. Take my mother to Germany so that we can find our relatives in the old town records.

2. Plan my daughter’s wedding.

3. Rock my grandchildren to sleep while their parents complain that I’m spoiling them.

4. Learn how to trim my rose bushes without killing them.

5. Do all of the things that I enjoyed when I was a child: draw, sing, laugh, ride my bike, ski, play music, write.

While I can step outside of my home today and ride my bike or sing along to my favorite songs while I write this post, some of these things are going to take time. My kids are five and seven. I’ve got awhile to wait before that little guy in the picture becomes a father. For that, I am going to need to be here.  And that’s why it’s so important that I “Just Ask.”

The people at Just Ask want you to stay around for a good long while so you can cross activities and achievements off that bucket list of yours. That’s why they’ve developed a test that could save your life—the BRACAnalysis test—by warning you about your chances of getting breast or ovarian cancer.

Just Ask Giveaway

By sharing your list, you can have a shot of winning a trip of a lifetime.  The grand prizes are:

-A family vacation of a lifetime to Universal Orlando® Resort.

-A Las Olas Surf Camp Safari

-Ski Lessons and stay at Park City Mountain Resort

Here’s my original “bucket list”…

  1. Learn to play the guitar.
  2. Return to London for an extended visit.
  3. Restore a classic car.
  4. Own {and ride} a motorcycle.
  5. Attend an Olympic event.
  6. Learn to speak Spanish. Okay, learn to understand more Spanish then what I’ve picked up from Dora and Diego.
  7. Visit the Mediterranean.
  8. See the Alhambra.
  9. Own a decent camera and know how to use it.
  10. Complete a triathlon, even a wimpy one.
  11. Perform stand-up.
  12. Visit Haworth, England.
  13. Write a book and have it published.
  14. Cook an amazing meal for a large group of people entirely from scratch.
  15. Own and restore a farmhouse.

    The one item on my bucket list is to have a real family vacation. To go somewhere…anywhere for a week and just enjoy being a family. No cell phone and no gaming systems!

    One of the things at the top of my bucket list is to own and learn how to use a DSLR camera (I’m eyeing the Canon EOS Rebel T21). I love using photography as a way to preserve memories–and beautiful memories deserve beautiful photos! Even better, I’ll be able to take awesome pictures of my family and me completing the rest of the activities on our bucket list :)

    One thing that has always been on the top of my own personal “bucket list” has been to take art classes. I have always been interested in Art and the history which motivated me to take several college courses. Since I was younger I have loved to draw, paint ,and create artistic pieces. Now that I have my daughter I don’t have much free time to pursue it as a hobby. I would love to have the opportunity to get back to doing something that i am passionate about.

    I’d love to take my son (and any other kids we’re lucky enough to have!) to see the big city in California and tiny village in France where I lived as a kid (mostly CA. France was only for a year!)

    I want to take a photography class. I love taking photos of things that make me happy from my family, to rainbows, sunsets, food, and so much more. I would love to be able to take amazing photos actually using tools and techniques to get the best photos possible.
    I need to adjust my bucket list, as I cross one off, add another and so on, I often times cross one off but don’t add another:(
    Thank you for the opportunity!
