Attack of the give-away aprons!

I just can't seem to get enough. I love giveaways. So, if you are like me head here and here to win some apronly good things!

Now, about that Bucket List...somewhere buried in a box is a list of the one hundred things I want to do before I die. I likely will stumble across this list someday and when I do, I will post it here. Many items are already accomplished, but some are yet to be done...

1. Try a martini. (check)
2. Go to Disney World and act like a kid. (check, check!)
3. Tell those I love that I do love them - regularly. (check)
4. Travel to Egypt.
5. Travel to Greece. (check)
6. Travel to Russia.
7. See my children wed for love and happiness - and have it stick forever.
8. Wear a ball gown - a really great one.
9. Dance at a ball, in the gown of course, with my husband.
10. Make a good homemade pie crust.
11. Stay in a four star hotel (check, check, check, check...)
12. Present at a national conference (check, check, check...)
13. Get to know my parents better.
14. As an adult, live in the same town as my parents. (check)
15. Make a sock monkey.
16. Write a book.
17. See Paris, again.
18. See Ireland and knit there, there and everywhere.
19. Take a train across the continent.
20. Marry the man of my dreams (CHECK)
20. Find that 100 Things to do before I die list soon so I don't have to start over!

And so on, and so on.


  1. Great list!

    I'm making my rounds and visiting all the blogs participating in Apron Queen's "kick the bucket" list.

    I've enjoyed yours...and love the "train case" sewing box!


  2. Okay, but don't forget that desk thing, and that, um, hot fudge thing. Hmmmmmm....

  3. Judy - Thank you so much for your comment. I love Julie's train case as well and am looking forward to making sewing boxes for my girls. I will be coming to visit your blog to see your bucket list as well. It is fun think of all the things that we may not be aware of while working our way through busy days. I hope you will visit often. ~Kelly

  4. Great list! It's cool that you've already started. :)

  5. muthering heights - Thank you for visiting my list so I could be inspired by yours. With all my travel, I may have forgotten how wonderful it has been to stand in front of great works of art and think, "Wow, it's the real thing!" - back to Italy next summer. And, I see we enjoy a wonder an enjoyment of Europe. ~Kelly

  6. What a wonderful list. Nice to check things off, isn't it. Is that your hubby in the comments? Made me laugh.
