  1. this list is awesome :D You scuba dive? I'd love to get back into it but I don't know anyone else who has a license!

    I've also wanted to attend a rave! It sounds/looks like a lot of fun. And perhaps I will help you accomplish 33...

  2. Yayyy my first comment!!! Thanks Justin :)

    Yes, I do scuba dive but same issue - I did the courses (I did my advanced open water) but then never really had anyone to do it with. I would love to take another course actually!!! We should investigate.

    I got my sis to write a bucket list...and my friend Lindsay so I am at 2! If you write one, I will be THAT much closer to accomplishing that goal!! DO IT!! hehe

  3. haha sweeet! I've just done the regular Open Water and gone diving with my dad a bit in Hawaii a few years ago but not much past that. I'm trying to think the last time I dived... maybe 2005? I'd love to do some wreck diving! That would be a wicked course to take :D

  4. I think 2005 is close to when I last dove as well actually! The last time I went was in Hawaii too! Coincedence?! I think not... we were meant to be diving buddies.

    I think wreck diving would be SUPER cool. I dove at Porteau Cove and they have ships sunken intentionally for divers and we only just swam around them and saw the exterior, but it was super cool. Have you been there?

  5. Things that i can do with you:
    3,8,9,13(i could really use them), 16,34,& 46.
    And dont worry! i can help you with #1 too! =) can i be your editor?! jk, im not that good at punctuation and such. How about i be your... manager?

    - Jen

  6. Done. Jennier Spier, Bucket List Manager. I like it!!!

  7. Not you bucket list! when you write a book! haha, who would i want to be your bucket list manager?!

  8. I would like to join you in learning more about wine!! And I already have a bucket list, but you have encouraged me to add more to it... does that count??

  9. I am glad I have so many people to do things with me!! That makes the bucket list items even more fun :)

    Thanks for commenting Ker! xoxo
