      Oh yay, that would be fun! I used to go every summer when I went on vaca with my family and would ride on the beach or on the mountains- it was so beautiful 😀

  3. This is such a cute idea! I created a bucket list on my blog but this is an awesome idea. Hey, if you’re in the DC area try out Zaytinya…it’s amazzzing! 🙂

    • Life's a Bowl

      Thanks! I can’t take full credit, I got the idea from reading other blogs but thought it was too good to pass up! Hmm, I am in the DC area but haven’t heard of Zaytinya- what kind of food does it have? I’m def open to trying new things 🙂 Thanks!

    Ditch the “wedding of the dreams” garbage and get married in DC City Hall like my hubs and I did– so much more money for traveling! We have been to three countries and numerous places in the States for all the money we would have blown on one day.

    • Life's a Bowl

      Every girl deserves her “dream” wedding and it’s different for everyone 🙂 That’s awesome that you and your husband have traveled a bunch, love to explore new places!

  18. I love this idea! It’s so inspiring! I just turned 24 (yikes) and felt the need to start a bucket list as well, running a 5k and starting a monthly meet-up with my girlfriends is definitely up there. Now if only I could only get more than 60 points in a game of bowling…

    • Life's a Bowl

      Thanks! I need to update it with my new list [turned 23 last week :)]… Haha, I am one of the worst bowlers 😛 If I can do it, you can!

  19. This is fantastic! I’m 22 right now and kind of aimlessly living life right now. I might have to borrow a few of your goals 🙂
