Never Have I Ever - Bucket List edition

Last night, I was pinning on Pinterest and I came across this pin.

I repined it but now it's hitting me a little harder. I sit here with my breakfast and beverage buffet of espresso, orange juice, and water like I do every morning and I think to myself "What haven't you done in your life, woman?"  I love my life and go throughout my day to day activities with a routine.  Have I ever held back from doing something I wanted to do?  Why haven't I just packed my bags with a few outfits and hit I20 without any plans?

But, as I watch GMA a man is demonstrating how to do THE BURPEE and I remember a certain time I learned to do a burpee after a few glasses of wine with one of the most fit girls I know. This probably has no relevance to you, but to me I remember I've always been down for anything.  Why am I holding back? And I can't help but think of 2 quotes that are usually screaming in the back of my head.

It's so true, you only have one life to live.

So today, I wanted to do a little Never Have I Ever, but with a twist. This is going to be my official Bucket List. There will be some cliche bucket list items, but also some random personal ones. And I hope to finish them all someday before my time is up.

LOVE the Mark Twain quote, when I moved out my mom was living in Arizona and I was moving back to NC, she got me a necklace that had a pendant with "explore.dream.discover" on it and the quote was in the box.(:
