  2. Hi Chrissy! I've started a master list of blogger bucket lists! Check it out here and link up: http://www.shapinguptobeamom.com/p/whats-on-your-list.html

    1. I realize it's been over a year but I absolutely love the master list. I'm adding my list now.

  3. LOVE your list!!! I need to make one of these! I just turned 21 this year so I have plenty of time to make a list and work on it!

  4. Why do you want to move to Mt. Vernon, Iowa? Just curious b/c I'm from iowa. We just moved to AZ so glad that I found your blog.
