The Rest of the Year ...

And the things I want to do ...

Call it a fall/winter bucket list. Or my 'rounding off 2011 Bucket List. Or something like that.

* Dye my hair. Maybe. I keep thinking I will. For the first time. Ever. But we'll see.

* Get my learner's permit. What? Shut up. You didn't know?

* Get a massage. For me. Soon.
Or acupuncture. That would work, too.

* Get the kiddo a big girl bike. Because looking at her today on her tiny trike-type-bike was just kind of sad. She's way too big for it. Santa may bring it. Or Chanukah Harry. Whatever works. We just need to get her one. And soon.

* And speaking of ... Go see Santa. Somewhere. Anywhere. My Jewish Southern Princess isn't afraid of the big man anymore.
Or so we think!

* Get to an ENT. Yep. For me. I need to. I have to. I'm too congested to explain further at this time.

* Get to IKEA. I'm in unorganized hell over here. I need to get there before 2012 hits.

* Read at least 20 more books.

* Get some good bras. TMI? Sorry. I had to say it.

* Build a snowman (assuming it snows in December).

* Make at least 4 things off of Pinterest (2 recipes and 2 crafts).

Then there are the few things I am going to add because I know [hope!] we're going to be doing them and I am totally the kind of person who likes crossing things off my lists.

* Go to Disney. Yep. Family trip. Planned. ILs and all. Looking forward to it and a little nervous at the same time. Yikes.

* Disney on Ice. Don't detect a theme. It's all good. It's just two things. I promise.

* Get our inflatable turkey up for T-Day this year.

This is a pretty mellow post, (fine, it's lame - I get it) but I'm out of ideas. I should have created a must do list for my daughter, but kind of got wrapped up in my inability to breathe and horrible shoulder pain all at once. So I stuck with me and my needs. With a few things thrown in for her. I'm still a somewhat good mom, right? Cause if Mama ain't happy - - ain't nobody happy. Isn't that how the saying goes?

And if not, well, I tried. Sorry, kiddo. Mama needs to go to bed now.

(Hmmn, I could totally cross that off my list after I add it ... trying to get to bed before midnight at least twice a week ...)


  1. This is a good list....oh and if you have any luck FINDING some good bras let me know where!! LOL Hope your shoulder feels better.

  2. OO OOH! Now that I have a big car, we should totally go to IKEA... and we can stop for massages on the way!!!!

    You have great hair...don't dye it!

  3. I love the ideas on Pinterest too. I just made to two recipes. They were great.

  4. Unless you have 5 million grays, like me, I vote for not dyeing - because it really warps the texture of your hair. Just think, if you decide not to, you can cross that off your list. OKay, I'm a bad influence, really.

  5. Good list. I love Disney. We took the kids for the first time last year. I can't wait to plan another trip. It is so much fun to see the kids enjoy it.

  6. I am such a list person too. The massage sounds wonderful. I've only done that once and it was heaven.

    One of my daughters will do something and then put it on her list so she can get the satifcation of crossing it off. I find that hysterical.

    Disney is always fun when you have children.

  7. I'd have to say it's a pretty good list.
    Oh and the Ikea one... I hear it's a pretty awesome place. I've never been there but would love to go!

  8. I love that you included making things off Pinterest - I have been repinning like crazy but haven't made anything yet!

    I might leave the recipes and instead try my hands at home decor crafts... which usually turn out awful, since I am completely craft-impaired, but no harm trying, right?

    Good list!! best of luck with it :-)

  9. Good list. I want to accomplish some of those as well. Specially the Disney one.

  10. That is ambitious! My bucket list for the remainder of the year would probably be to survive the holidays ok. :) Go get the massage. Totally worth it. I haven't been in a long time - I used to go regularly. Last night, I was thinking how wonderful that would be.

  11. good bras are awesome. I recommend getting a fitting at a REAL store (not Victoria's) and starting with the most expensive one you can afford.
    Cheap bras are for the birds.

  12. I love lists like this. I have one - somewhere. I could go for a massage, accupuncture, anything relaxing really.

  13. Totally NOT a lame post! I love the list! You are a very good mom, btw
