my partial bucket list

I've never written down a bucket list before. Oh I have things rolling through my head about what I would love to do - and I've done many of them - but just never got around to writing anything down. Until I saw this contest and decided to kick my list into gear. Once I started writing things down, I had to pare it down because there is so much I still want to do.

Now some of these are doable I just haven't done them yet. The others are ones that might require a bit of difficulty in accomplishing. But they can be accomplished.

Bucket List
  1. Take cooking classes in Italy
  2. Go to my namesake place in Spain and say "these are my people!"
  3. Ride a NASCAR around a track at 150mph
  4. Stand on the sidelines of a Dallas Cowboys football game
  5. Live in a log cabin
  6. Take photographs off automatic setting
  7. Take a road trip across the US
  8. Sit on the players bench at a hockey game
  9. Spend a couple of weeks in Orlando exploring Universal, Disney World and Sea World
  10. Swim with the dolphins
  11. Read the "Classics" that should have been read in school
  12. Read on the beaches of Hawaii
  13. Enjoy Mardi Gras in New Orleans (didn't appreciate it when I went in high school)
  14. Ride a dog sled in Alaska
  15. Take a cruise
