The Bucket List

We've all seen the movie...

No need to preface what's going on here. Just a need to share. (And maybe have a few people hold me accountable on the less ridiculous ones.)

Before I die:

I really REALLY want to go to a country awards ceremony. My husband is aware of this, as I will not leave him alone about it every time we watch one together on TV. I have no preference. I just want an excuse to get dressed up and be in the same room as a TON of my favorite artists in what might possibly be the most fun concert I ever attend.

I want to go to Germany. I don't want to go to some tent down the street...I have taken eight years of German, and I want to use it. I want to be completely immersed in the culture, with a giant beer stein in each hand. (And I would also like a shrunk.)

I want to own a horse. Maybe my Grandma Bell has had a slight influence on me in this arena, but I think horses may be the smartest, most majestic creatures on God's green earth. I don't want it as a pet; I want to learn how to ride it and work it as it was intended for use...which may come in handy seeing as how owning a ranch is on my husband's bucket list.

I want to learn to play my guitar. Since before I can even remember, I have LOVED to sing. And since my early teen years I have wanted to learn to play guitar; not just three chords like for a rock-n-roll song, but for real--like my Grandpa Hartley (or John Mayer lol). I love a lot of things in this world, but few have come close to my love for music...and if I could make my own.....

I want to hold my grandbabies. I know it is not in my power to know how long I'm able to hang out on this earth. But if I could see my babies grow--and hold theirs--there would be little left to ask for.

I'm not asking for too much am I?
Anyone else care to share???
