Life Goals - I Will Do This!

My list is ever growing, but that is a good thing seeing as a lot of things get checked off it quite often!

All photos are from Perfect Bucket List via Tumblr, but I found most of them on Pinterest. They just linked back to Tumblr.

Goals I'm Working Towards

Bake every single thing in a cookbook. I already have it picked out and have been working on it for a while! Naturally, it's a cookbook full of recipes for cookies!

Be a stay at home mom. Absolutely!

Be called mommy. I hope to be blessed with a lot of children!

Be the Maid of Honor in a wedding. Just once is all I hope for, twice if I'm lucky! :)

Become a fashion designer. I love to create my own style clothing. I think it would be really neat if I could create clothes which would be sold at a store or online.

Become a teacher. I plan to homeschool my children so this goal will more than likely happen!

Build a gingerbread house. Believe it or not, I've never actually done this! And I'd actually like to build a gingerbread manger scene instead of a house.

Complete a scrapbook. I have several ideas pinned for what I'd like this to turn out as.

Complete an entire book of Sudoku puzzles. I have the to learn how to do these confusing puzzles!

Convince someone to write their own bucket list. I know I can do this!

Create a popular blog. Blue Eyed Beauty is part of this life goal...but I have no control over the popularity of this blog which is the cool part!

Dance with my kids in the rain. I want to make lots of memories with my children!

Donate my hair to locks of love. When I was young I had really long hair. One day I decided I wanted short hair so I chopped it all off. I was going through my things recently and found the braid of hair. I don't want to keep it so I'm going to see if I can possibly donate it to locks of love.

Eat an entire pizza by myself. Silly goal, but I'd like to do it at least once.

Find the perfect little black dress. I've found a few which were close, but still don't have one.

Finish an afghan. I have several patterns, now to buy yarn and take the time to make one!

Finish an entire coloring book. I've never done this!

Grow an herb garden. When I get a place of my own this will be one of the first things I start!

Grow my own food. I think this is a very important thing. I plan to have a large garden and fruit trees for sure!

Have a dog for its entire life. I have yet to do this even though I've owned many dogs!

Have a pet rabbit. I love rabbits! They are so cute! I would love to own one; even if it's not for a long period of time I still think it would be fun to have a pet rabbit.

Have my own boutique. I actually would like a small shop/cafe with a coffee bar. :)

Help end animal cruelty. Which is why I am a member of The Humane Society of the United States.

Learn fluent sign language. I will be teaching my children sign language when they are babies. I've seen how it works and love the results!

Learn how to knit. I have the video; just have to take the time to learn it now!

Learn how to use chopsticks. I've tried so many times and I still can't get it! :(

Learn to play the piano. I've tried many times, but I still want to learn this!

Let my hair get really long. This should be easy since I will never cut it again!

Make gingerbread men. Hopefully this winter!

Make homemade ice cream. I hope to find a recipe that doesn't call for raw eggs so I can actually eat it too!

Make my own chocolate. I've found some recipes, but need to find the ingredients!

Make my own jam. I would love to learn how to do this! Especially when I am growing my own foods!

Meet Carrie Underwood. Yes!

Meet Dolly Parton. I really think she would be an interesting woman to meet.

Meet Miranda Lambert. Please, and thank you!

Meet Nastia Liukin. She is amazing!

Open my own business. Still undecided on what it will be, but I'm pretty sure this will happen one day.

Order an entire cup of whipped cream at Starbucks. This is a goal which will be semi-hard to do any time soon since I live nowhere near a Starbucks anymore. Sad day. But, I'm sure I will visit a town with a Starbucks eventually. :)

Own a flannel in every color. Green? Check. Red? Check! Blue? Check!

Own a Husky. These are one of my favorite dogs! I would love to breed them!

Own a Nikon Camera. Yes please!

Own a pair of cowgirl boots. I am always on the lookout for these everywhere I go!

Own Toms. Even if it's only one or two pairs I would be happy with that!

Paint something on canvas. I would love to do this!

Pet a zebra. I imagine it would be a lot like petting a horse.

Plant a tree. I will do this when we buy our own place.

Plant flowers. At every place I live I want to plant flowers. I love flowers!

Publish a Best Selling novel. If I can just get the book finished I might publish it!

Put together a cookbook. I am actually working on this!

Read every novel written by Nicholas Sparks. I've read quite a few of his books. They are so sad, but I just can't stop reading them!

Read the Twilight Saga. I know there's a lot of controversy over these books, but I'd still like to see them.

Rescue a puppy. Yes! I will be doing this as many times as I can.

Run a marathon. I don't know if I'll ever be able to do this, but it's still something I'd like to try and do one day.

Save up $15,000. I can do it!

See the Monarch Butterfly Migration. This would be so awesome!

See the Statue of Liberty. The only other U.S. Landmark I really want to see.

Set up a lemonade stand with my children. Maybe in the future. :)

Shake a soldier's hand.

Spend an entire day watching Disney movies. I've come close to doing this a few times already!

Start a *journal* and write in it every day. I've done this before so I know I can do it again!

Start smiling more. I really need to do this. :)

Throw someone a surprise birthday party. I had one thrown for me years ago and it was such a blast! I'd love to do the same for someone else!

Visit a vineyard. Any vineyard will do. I just want to see one in person after reading about them in books.

Visit Ground Zero.

Volunteer at an animal shelter. I actually have one picked I just need to go!

Watch every movie Audrey Hepburn ever acted in. Well maybe not every single one, but most of them. I'm at least past half way now...

Watch my children get married. I do hope that this will happen!

Write a book. I have written a few...I need to finish one!

Write a letter to myself and open it in 10 years. I have started a letter several times; I just need to finish one!

  2. LOVE this list! It almost brought tears to my eyes. How sweet! Very inspiring! Pick one thing a month and try to accomplish it. You are young and can achieve a lot! ~Sandra

  3. Totally love this list! I have the Twilight books, just can't seem to get into them. Can't get past the vampire/werewolf stuff.

    1. Oh yeah I know what you mean. You just have to remember its a book, not real life...some books are easier to follow than others.
