My Bucket List...

It's been a long week, and I'm looking forward to the weekend!  I just have to get through one more day of work and I'm free!

It's going to be a bittersweet weekend.  My friend Matt, got a job in Alabama and is moving away.  His going away party is Saturday.  I've known Matt since high school.  Well, I've known most of my close friends since high school actually.  It's funny, they say that you grow apart once you hit college, but after almost 8 years of having graduated, we're all still pretty close.  It's going to be hard to say good-bye, but I know it's not good-bye for good.  It's just a sign that all of us are truly growing up, and starting our own lives, on our own paths.

So I've been thinking of things that I want to do with my life.  Things that I want to do before it's all said and done.  And so I've compiled a little bucket list of 10 things (not necessarily in any order) I want to do in life:

- Own my own catering business
- Travel to Europe
- Have a family
- Visit all 50 states
- Eat at a Michelin star restaurant
- Graduate from culinary school
- Grow a full fledged garden
- Write a book (don't necessarily know about what, but hey, it could happen)
- Visit the Philippines
- Have a full stocked kitchen (like seriously... with every gadget known to man)

Of course, some things are easier to obtain than others, but it's always great to have goals. Something to strive for, you know?

What about you guys?  What's on your 'bucket list'?

Don't forget to come back tomorrow for the dessert poll!  I've got an interesting one lined up!  Have a great rest of your Thursday, and we're just hours away from Friday!  And that just means we're that much closer to the ever-sought-after weekend!


  1. Hey Peggy, forget about a fully stocked kitchen - just save up for a Thermomix!!!

    Hope you do all on your list.

    Me - I have Italy on mine!

  2. Love your list - I have no doubt you're going to hit every single one. Alabama's a nice place to visit! Great to have friends who know you so well.

  3. Your list is extremely similar to my own!! I want my dream kitchen, own a catering business graduate from culinary school as well....I am sure you will do it! You're very driven!

  4. I have been making lists so long and this year I put it on the shelf! I will take it as it comes! But it is great to have a big picture of your life and where you want to be in short and long term.

    Just wanted to stop by and say that some of my friends found your page on my blogroll, visited your page,and tried some of your recipes. They said it turned out good so wanted to pass the info :)

  5. We love your "want to do" list! And we must say that there are a few items we dream of as well!! Have a great weekend, Giorgia & Cyril
