Here is an example…


Bucket List #1: Own a Gold Lexus RX 350


#1: Own a Gold Lexus RX 350
When I was in high school my oldest brother, Mark, was married and had a Lexus. I loved it and wanted one.
I always told myself that no matter what job I had in the future, I would make sacrifices in other areas so that I could drive a Lexus.


Bucket List #2: Take my kids Parasailing


#2: Take my kids Parasailing
In high school and college, I always wanted to go skydiving before I died. After I got married and had kids, I never wanted to skydive anymore. I changed my wish from skydiving to parasailing. I went skydiving with my kiddos when they were 8 and 9 years old.


Bucket List #3: Have my house paid off before I retire


#3: Have my house paid off before I retire
Most people pay a mortgage on their house for years, and still owe on it when they retire, even when they die. I want to put enough money aside to pay off my house before I retire.


#4: Vacation in Hawaii


#4: Vacation in Hawaii
As a kid in Cincinnati, Ohio, I grew up vowing I would move to Florida when I became an adult. I wanted to live in the Sunshine State and be warm. Now I live here. I wanted to just visit the paradise state of Hawaii, but do not wish to live there.


#5: See Sam Smith Live in Concert


#5: See Sam Smith Live in Concert
Some concerts I have seen include Dave Matthews, Billy Joel, Carrie Underwood, and John Mayer. The best was John Mayer. I think Sam Smith will be even better…


6: Go on a Caribbean Cruise


6: Go on a Caribbean Cruise
My friends know I just like to relax and enjoy life, so they suggested I would love a cruise ship. Juggling the soccer ball, reading books, and soaking up the sun are my top priority on the cruise ship.


# 7: Run a marathon in the mountains


# 7: Run a marathon in the mountains
I figure if I’m going to be running 26.2 miles for a few hours, I might as well have amazing scenery along the way…
