I decided to create my own version of “life’s to-do list.” The movie The Bucket List—as well as the book, The Next Thing on the List—have inspired me. I’ve always envied people who have set goals and ideas for themselves, then follow through by actually doing them. And how fun would it be to check off the list as I go? It’s still in the works, but I’m excited to see what new adventures it will bring my way. 😀
I can tell you at least one “to-do” that will definitely find it’s way onto that list: Try something completely new at your favorite restaurants. Or something along those lines. I’m such a creature of habit. When I saw black bean soup on the menu at Panera this afternoon, it was the oh-so-obvious choice. On the side I had 1/2 of a Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich and an apple. Mmm…how I love Panera’s soups.
It was so much fun eating out for lunch with this girl. I told her that she needs to order the Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich next time we eat there so that she can figure out what’s in it and then recreate it at home (and teach me how.) 😉 I don’t know how she does it, but somehow she knows exactly what’s in a meal so that she can make it again.
Trying something new isn’t easy, but advertising helps a little. 😉 Starbucks has been promoting their frappucino’s for a while now, with the claim that “you can make it your way!” I’ve been wanting to try a soy version for a while now, and today was my chance. Nicole ordered their caramel light frappucino (um…amazing!) and I ordered the tall soy mocha light frappucino. It tasted just like a wendy’s frosty—only better.
What a fun treat! 😀
Creating my own version of “life’s to-do list” will be challenging and fun. Who knows what new foods I’ll try? What excursions I’ll go on? What kinds of people I’ll meet? What lessons I’ll learn?
Of course I’ll share the completed list as soon as it’s complete. 😉
Question: What are some things you would add to your own “life’s to-do list”? I need some brilliant ideas to add to the list!
