Thanks! I loved your list too. I got some of my ideas from you! :-) and I'm sure the bucket list will have to make room for change, because I will be forever adding to it!

The ones I think we should accomplish together:

5k race
tattoo
make a quilt
learn to sew
(plus others)

The quilt one is an excellent idea. I love having a quilt that my grandma made for me. We've got lots of time to perfect the skill before we need to be making any for our grandchildren. I've actually helped my grandma do the stitching a few times and its very relaxing!

Oh Lucy Marie- I will be the billionth follower of your blog!

Also- I would love to be your one of five real blog friends.

And- I love your goal to have more kids than you can count- and the one about laughing at your husband every day. That is a good one.
