Bucket List Started, Check!

Friday, December 06, 2013

Some of us, okay me, have started a "Bucket List." Now on this list are several "goals in life"
and of course, getting healthy and staying healthy is priority #1. Our lists can be modified at any time, adjusted to our current lifestyle, patterns, and the problems that occur and how we handle them. But what about all the "fun things on our lists?"

My DH and I have traveled the great USA and finally checked off our 50th state, the great state of Oregon. As we traveled, we played a game of sorts. Name a State, what is the first thing that comes to mind? Some examples, Maine = Lobster, Utah = St. Lake City, Washington, DC = OUR CAPITOL, and Oregon = "BRENDABUNNY!" Yup, it works for me!!!! Our trip was fabulous, as we planned, scheduled, and made it happen to meet. Brenda and her proud supporter, Trace, also known as her DH, truly made our vacation. You can read her BLOG and see more photos on her page as well, but I wanted to share some of those precious moments with you all.

We also received some adorable gifts, totally unexpected, which places my SPIcon into the mix. My SPTurtle, all made from Oregon Shells, a little Shell "Treasure Box," my "Life isn't about waiting for the STORM to pass...it's about learning to dance in the RAIN" magnet, a beautiful card, and a keyring for my DH.

I mentioned about the game my DH and I played in relationship to our states. As we traveled, we would select an ornament for our Christmas Tree, our memory sealed in a decoration. Oh so can you guess our Oregon ornament? Well of course, a photo of BRENDA(Bunny) & TRACE, all encased with ribbons and bows, our "present" for our tree.

Okay, my "Bucket List" has a check, but so many more to go. I have stated in the past, I would love to meet and greet you ALL. So if you have meeting someone new on "your list" don't put it off. Cherish the time, well spent with friends, family, and YES, Brenda and Trace are "my family." Family, we hope to see again, be together again, and maybe, just maybe, meet some of our mutual SPFriends at the same time. Anyone want to start a new SPFBucket List? I'm game, are you?

Hugs, to all my SPFriends! There ain't nothing better, than getting it in person!!!!!

    Fran I love your smile & fun attitude it just lights up my day and what a special thing you two do with the Christmas ornaments I am honored to be on your tree emoticon ....And what a fun game to play as you traveled.
    You & Paul are definetly "our family" we sincerely think the world of you and as Paul said when we all parted ways that morning... the good thing is you guys can't travel any further east or us west so meeting somewhere in the middle someday to visit again or possibly do a meet & greet with other sparkfamily is a great bucket list idea.
    Thank you both again for making Oregon a memory for us as well...
    And you let that little emoticon of yours know that this bunny is doing a lot of pre planning and getting back to some of the basics so I can hop into the New Year like a re-energized emoticon ...Hugs & Love to you both emoticon
