Bucket list 2011

Alright - here it is, no turning back -
a fresh start :)

Like I said, some are embarrassing and some are wayyy over-due(the numbers that are bigger than the others), ...It's just time to face the music.

1. Legally change my last name changed to my married name - it's only been six months...
2. De-clutter - everything
3. Go fishing

4. Take better pictures
5. Get a tattoo

7 . Meal plan better
8. Save more cash money
9. Get to know my fellow bloggers/followers better
10. Comment more on my posts and other's
11. Make another step up in my job - more responsibility, more money
12. Be a better friend - in all aspects of the word.

21. Take my sister to Forks, WA - that's right Hanner :)
22. Get pregnant - at some point in the coming year
23. Become more self confident
24. Get a handle on my anxiety - mostly at night time...

& last but not least?

25. Move into a house - preferably on a lake :)

Well there you have it! 2011 has some big shoes to fill, 2010 was pretty great... but I know it's already up for the challenge! Hopefully I can continue thinking of more and adding them accordingly.


  1. I love this list! It's a great mix of serious and silly goals! and life needs both!!

    Have a fabulous day!

  2. I'm with you on 20! It's tough to learn to take fancy pictures! All of your lists sounds great! I'm also trying to get to know all my blog friends better this year too. And good luck on the getting pregnant! I did a week-by-week of my pregnancy in my blog if you ever need to compare symptoms or want random pg facts!

  3. Wow! That is so great :-) Pregnancy in the future?? Exciting! You go girl!

  4. I love this list! And I'm totally excited about #22 :o) It's hard not to get discouraged if it doesn't happen immediately, so I hope when you want it, it happens rights away! And for #1, I totally ended up doing it through the mail because 1-I live in Pullman where you can't do half that kind of stuff, and 2-I didn't have to deal with people/lines. So much easier!

  5. oh my gosh oh my gosh! Pregnant? this year!? YAY!! :D Love the list girl!

  6. Thanks for all the excietment ladies! There is SO much to be done this year! As for pregnancy, it will most definitely be towards the latter part of the year, but I'm still excited :) I hope 2011 is just as eventful for you as well! :)

  7. Ok, show me how to do this please. You totally rock Amanda!

  8. Amanda, I love your list! :) There are a couple of things that I need to get done by the end of the year. I'd like to take better pictures too. I will hope to one day get a big-girl camera and maybe learn how to use it. Haha.

    Going to try to get pregnant this year? Yay! Can't wait for it to happen. Hehe. <3

    P.S. I love your new layout, super cute. I don't know if I said that in a previous comment. :)

  9. Love your list! Especially the "go fishing" part. Made me grin, hehe. :)

    I want to learn how to do bokeh too! I can do it by accident with my crappy phone camera, but other than that... no sir-ee. I've looked at a couple tutorials, and it just doesn't make sense to me how the photos come out that way, lol. It doesn't add up, hehe. Good luck! Let me know if you have success with it!

  10. Great list! I hope that you accomplish everything on it! I would be lying if I said I wasnt excited about you getting pregnant! I hope it happens when you are ready for it too! It is the greatest thing ever! Hope we can get closer this year! Love you girl!

    PS I didnt get my name legally changed until 2008 and I got married in 2006 so dont feel bad lol!

  11. Fun list, Amanda!!

    We share a lot of similiar goals :)

  12. Umm....I know i don't know you....well at ALL...but will you take ME to Forks too??!!! LOL! I'm IN LOVE with the Twilight series!! And I'm super jealous that you're going to go! ha!
