Bucket List

A while back, when Josh and I first starting discussing marriage and where we'd like our lives to go, we drafted a Bucket List together. At first it started out with easy things like "Host Thanksgiving at our place" or "See Niagara Falls," but as we got more into it and added things in the weeks to come it became this sort of lifelong goal list. It was more than just a list of dreams or trips we might take. It had morphed into our predicted way of life.

I haven't looked at the list in a few months (9, to be more exact), but today I came across a site called TimeToast.com and thought it'd be a good idea to break out the ol' Bucket List. You see, TimeToast is a website where you can create your own timeline. Timelines for savings, timelines for trips, timelines for baby-making, timelines for finishing school...you name it. I think implementing our Bucket List into it will make completing our Bucket List more of a GOAL than just a dream or lofty idea. Check out TimeToast for yourself and let me know you're thoughts. =)

But, without further ado, Josh and Meagan's Bucket List!
