Spring Cleaning: Rejuvenate + What I Wore Wednesday

Today is one of those days. The kind of day where you've gotten so much done but your workload has still managed to increase. You know what I'm talking about. The kind of day that seems to go by so quickly; until you look at the clock and your eyes pop out of your head because its really only 11:30 a.m. Where you can't seem to drink enough coffee or pin enough things to make the time go by faster. Yes folks, that's the kind of day I'm having.

So in order to rejuvenate myself, I've decided to create a bucket list. This also ties into my Spring Cleaning posts because sometimes your attitude towards life needs to be cleaned and rejuvenated! This is especially true when you're having days like the one I'm having right now, when it seems like you haven't conquered much!

So here it goes - and I'll be adding to this list from time to time as I come up with new things to do. Oh, and I'll also be adding a separate page dedicated to my bucket list so you (well, mostly me) can see how much of it I've accomplished! Okay, for real this time, here it goes:

In no particular order

- Go skydiving (I'm extremely afraid of falling so I want to try and overcome this one)
- Feed sharks in a shark cage
- Vacay in Tahiti (always been a dream of mine since my beach bum days)
- Learn a different language (preferably Korean)
- Research and document my family tree
- Travel to Italy (Heather, I'm totally counting on you for this one. Lol.)
- Have my dream wedding
- Subscribe to a gym (and actively participate)
- Learn to play the piano
- Sing as a side job (events, weddings, funerals, etc.)
- Honeymoon in Greece
- Take a dance class
- Get my degree
- Travel to all 50 states (3 down, 47 more to go)
- Shoot a gun
- Drive a motorcycle
- Read 100 books in one year (I need to find out how many I already read this year)
- Meet a blogging buddy in person
- Start an etsy shop
- Start a crafting business
- Learn how to do woodwork
- Milk a cow
- Ride an ostrich
- Explore the pyramids in Egypt
- Repel down a cliff
- Renew my vows in the Bahamas
- Buy my own house
- Surf in Bali
- Plant a tree
- Go snowboarding


Well, there you have it. That's my bucket list so far. What about you? What's your bucket list look like? Let's compare! I'm sure you've got some great things that I could add to mine!

And finally, here's what I wore:

Makeup: Black lid, grey crease, white highlight, clear gloss on lips
Dress: Little black dress bought at Papaya (around $30, don't remember the exact cost)
Shoes: $30 at A-1 Shoes
Belt: Came with another dress I bought at Papaya
Bag: Betseyville by Betsey Johnson (Retails around $80, bought at Ross for $25)


Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone! I look forward to seeing some bucket lists from you guys!

    1. Girl, Ross is where its at! Lol. But seriously, I'm a huge purse hoarder so the only way Joey lets me buy purses alone is if I'm going to Ross. I usually come home with two purses every time I go. Lol. Imagine if I paid full price for those bags...fuhgeddaboutit! I'd be broke and living on the street. I'd be the bag lady. Lol.

    1. Lol. I got the "have babies" part down already. STILL not married, living in a house owned by my dad but he and the rest of my family still live in Hawaii so its pretty much ours. Lol. And I cannot wait until my kids are older so we can travel more. Traveling with them now is hell. Seriously hell. Guam is far away from everything so flying back home to Hawaii is a 7hr trip. 7 hours + 3 kids, its a good thing they check for guns before you board otherwise I would have shot myself a long time ago. Lol.

  8. Wow! Great list, I want to make one, but I don't even know where to start! Also, those shoes are sooooooo adorable, I just can't stop looking at them!

  14. I have so much travel planned for 2016. I’ve not taken a proper vacation in years, so I’m kind of going overboard in the upcoming months. We’re visiting all over in India Just for adventure. I can’t believe we’re doing this.
