Lists, Lists, Lists.

I really just love making lists.  I guess that's the writer coming out in me, because my mama loves to make lists, too, and we're both big writers and English/grammar/spelling-people.

I love making to-do lists (well, sort of), "favorites" lists, and sometimes even grocery lists!

And I also like adding to my "bucket list".  These are things that I want to do before I leave this earth.  And I intend to try to do every one of them!

So here you go, my bucket list:

Learn a second language fluently

Have one of my books published

Visit China again

Visit and work in a Chinese orphanage

Go on a mission trip to China

Go on a mission trip elsewhere

Adopt internationally

Learn to sew

Sew one of my own articles of clothing

Sew an article of clothing for someone else

Make a snowman that is standing on his head

Personally help a family find their child/waiting child find their family

Climb a rock-climbing wall. (This has been partially done; I have rock-climbed, but it was a small wall--I'd like to climb a bigger one.)

Read the Anne of Green Gables series all the way through

Read the Narnia series all the way through

Read through the Bible

Visit New Zealand

Visit Australia

Be a bridesmaid or Maid of Honor in a wedding.

Learn to Spanish flamingo dance

Learn to dance Chinese traditional dances

Dance on pointe shoes

Meet Bethany Hamilton

Meet (and hug) Nick Vujicic

Meet Katie Davis

Own a window box garden

Visit Mongolia

Drink lemonade out of a mason jar

Be at at the pier at Huntington Beach, California when Ray Comfort is soap-boxing (See THIS link--click on the Open Air list)

And just for fun, here is my current wishlist.  Just things I would like to have at some point.

Cowboy boots


Supergirl Shirt

Soul Surfer Book

Shadow Spinner Book

Tim Tebow Book

Tangled (movie)

Peter Pan (movie)

The Perfect Game (movie)

CUTBACK (movie)

So what about you guys?  Do you have some things you want to make sure you do before you leave this earth?  Some things you would like to have at the moment?
