Catching up

It seems like my bucket listing adventures pick up in the spring and summer, and then wane during the fall and winter months. I don't know if it's because the weather lends itself more to activity in warmer months, or if it's coincidence, or another aspect at play. But here I am again in May, putting full focus on my list. Some exciting news on the horizon...Mother's Day is this weekend here in the US, and my husband bought me the ultimate gift for an adventure junkie - a 30 minute flight discovery class, which includes flying an airplane (with an instructor)! I'm excited beyond belief, but also terrified. In other news, I am trying to win free tickets to Cypress Valley Canopy Tours to explore tree canopies and zipline. The two pictures with the most "likes" on Facebook win 4 tickets, and I am in third place now. I am so excited to hopefully win, I can taste it. If you would like to vote for me, please go here and click like on my picture. I did do a few things over the fall and winter months that I would like to share with you. I have done the Houston Zombie Walk previously in 2009, and convinced my friends to join me to walk again in 2011.
I also donated a few hand carved foam pumpkins to some causes I support, such as one to the local fire station and another to a local VFW. I made a third pumpkin especially for the Texas Heart Institute who are responsible saving the life of my best friend's husband twice. Once when he almost died from major heart complications, and again when they gave him a heart transplant. I am forever indebted to them. While I was donating the fire station pumpkin, the great volunteers there invited us inside to tour the station, get a good look at the trucks and where they sleep and hang out while on duty. I would really love to get a ride on Big Red someday! Here's to another Spring and Summer full of adventure!


  1. My ex coworker started [I believe] the first ever Zombie walk here in Sydney. An unassuming girl, I was amazed how she was able to coordinate the event, get so many people to come, get permission from the council and police whilst warranting news coverage.

    I'm so used to doing things on my own because any external permission-asking tends to sucks up all my steam. Keep at it with your lists and as long as you're active you're winning.

  2. Hi Marsha
    I just found your blog, and it's pretty cool, so I hope it's ok, but I followed it. I seen quiet a few blogs about bucket lists, and though they are never identical, when I saw the rubber band ball you made I new I had to add it to my bucket list. I can't wait to get to the store, and start my own!
