For more inspiration on what to add to YOUR bucket list, I highly recommend checking out Mackenzie Horan from Design Darling and her 101 in 1001 here and here.


  1. 24. If you found out about any, please share. I would love to go to one.

  2. Run a 5k is on my list too! Love your interesting list! :)

  3. Hey Honey! Love the list... Just venture up to the farm one weekend and you can cross off #8 & #16! We can call it "M & M's Cooking and Sewing Extravaganza!" Love you (and my Will too!)

  4. Hi Melisssa, So nice to "meet" you! I love your bucket list - attend making things happen also made my list :) Maybe we will officially meet in person there someday!

  5. Love this!!!! What a great idea.

  6. Of the ones that are left, my favorite are #33,43,46, and 54. Those are all great goals! I did this once about 5 years ago, except I didn't make them public until they were done, and I had a year to do 100. I got through about 70 by the end of the year I think. Even though I didn't finish, the very act of building up the courage to do, and DOING, really helped me grow as a person. You'll definitely finish you list in plenty of time, and you'll probably even have to make another, more ambitious list!
