We will be taking a very modest honeymoon, so we just recently added our first item to this list: a out-of-the-country, awesome vacation! We would also both like to finish grad school pre-baby.

Go to Disney World (we’re doing that for our honeymoon so tick!)

3 month road trip of the USA (I live in England)


Have lunch at the Fat Duck (seeing as it’ll set us back £700 (over $1,000!!) I think we should do this befoe children)


I actually originally wanted to TTC after the wedding, but I’ve just recently gone through the whole ‘I WANT TO SEE THE WORLD!’ thing and so yeah… I’m putting it off by 3-5 years now.

  • Wedding: Central Park

Finish home improvements. We want to do some landscaping to the yard that will probably cost 2k to do so we are saving up. We like to take mini vacations but we camp so they are pretty cheap. Other than that I can’t think of anything. We will start TTC once I graduate nursing school and  I have a job for a few months.

I have a list!


Finish dissertation (this is pre-baby, not necessarily pre-TTC – I’m starting work on it now, graduating this time next year)

Lose weight (making progress on this one!  10lbs to go)

Go on a nice vacation with Darling Husband

Have a girl’s trip with my best friends (will be checked off in July – planning my BFF’s bachelorette weekend now!)

Run a 10k (signed up for one June 1)

Have Darling Husband shoot some boudoir photos for me to record my pre-baby body for posterity 🙂

  • Wedding: April 2013 - A court...

Build confidence (I feel like no matter what I do I won’t feel satisfied if I don’t feel good about myself)

Design my own tattoo (not saying that’s more important, just something I’ve been wanting to do)

Enjoy my early 20’s 

Get our modest dream home 

Go to Disney World

Go to Fiesta Texas

Sky Dive

Bungee Jump

Maybe travel outside the country and maybe go back to school to be a veterinarian, who knows.

I have at least five years, hopefully can get my list done 🙂

Ours is:

1) Darling Husband to finish his MBA -currently in progress

2) Go to Atlantis in the Bahamas – check

3) Go to Tokyo, Japan – check

4) For me to finish a half marathon – in progress

5) Finally re-do our front and back yard. We have never liked how it was landscaped by the previous owner.

We went through our bucket list a lot faster than we thought…so we might add a few more vacations on there.

Trip to Disney World

Take a cruise (combine with the above probably)

Visit New York


That’s about it for me!  Anywhere else I visit will have to be with kids or when they are grown.  We’re already pretty settled with cars, house, pets already.

Buy a house

Get a dog-He was born yesterday. I’ll be able to bring him home in June <3

Lose some weight- 16 pounds down and going strong!

We have a very busy summer, so that will keep me occupied until early fall when we will then try. I will have my dog, and I will (hopefully) have lost enough weight to feel ready.

Realistically I am pretty close to completing my pre-baby bucket list. That’s a scary thought! Lol

    1. Obtain a job with lots of leave & great health care (Check)
    2. Get married (Check)
    3. Hubby graduates (Check)
    4. He starts his career (Check)
    5. Big European trip (Going in July)
    6. Buy a house

    My list looks kind of boring, but I have several other things I would like to do on my “Life” bucket list; working with jewelry, tour NASA, go to Comic Con, get a dog, etc. But for me those things don’t necessarily have to be before I have a baby. I could incorporate a little one into my pre-set goals. Not saying I want a child any time soon though lol! Tongue Out
