September Bucket List Self Challenge

So, the other day, my husband stumbled upon this website to keep track of the things you want to do before you die and we both started putting together our own lists.  The neat thing is that you can see some of the things other people have on their lists and get really great ideas for your own. I found several things this way that I never even knew I wanted to do! Here's what I have so far:
  • Ride a Segway 
  • Become a vegetarian for a month   
  • Send a message in a bottle 
  • Knit and donate 30 scarves for the homeless
  • Paint a self portrait on a big canvas  
  • Blog about my life consistently for at least a year   
  • Go indoor skydiving   
  • Go scuba diving   
  • Go PARASAILING over WATER on a boat!!! 
  • Own a 1963 Jeep Gladiator J20-light blue  
  • Get a sleeve tattoo    
  • Run a 5k   
  • Become an aunt    
  • Take a photo with husband every month and make a collage out of it  
  • Ziplining  
  • Visit the pyramids in Egypt   
  • Visit New Orleans       
  • Mayan Ruins          
  • Visit Stonehenge  
  • Trek the Incan Trail to Machu Picchu          

Now, I know a lot of the world travel part is going to be a ways off still, seeing that we have such a young family, but a few of these are very doable with a minimal monetary investment on my part! There were a lot of other "easier" bucket list items or ideas that I have already completed, like having a baby or falling in love, but I wanted to keep my list with today as a starting point. 

Aaaanyways, I think I am going to try to become a vegetarian for the month of September.  I have no qualms with butchering an animal and eating it, this bucket list item is simply to walk in someone elses shoes and see how it may or may not effect my health. I'm going to start looking into it and figuring out what products I can and cannot eat. As a bonus for my health, I am also going to attempt to once again cut soda completely out of my diet. I've done this once or twice before but ended up hooked right back on the darn stuff again each time. I drink WAY too much diet soda. Bring on SODA-FREE SEPTEMBER (and steak-free, sausage-free, salmon-free, shrimp-free ***SOB!***)
