Do you have a 40 before 40 list? or a 30 before 30 list? Or another similar type of list?  Here is a list of other bloggers that are doing similar things...i love browsing them every so often to see what they've been up to, and to see what crazy stuff they want to do!  My own is pretty normal I think.

If you have a bucket list to share, feel free to link to it below.  It's always interesting to see what others dreams and intentions are, arent' they?
