I was a bad blogger in 2013

Happy New Year everybody!!!!

And yes; the title is true i’ve been a bad blogger and sadly also very lazy with my bucket list.

2013 was such a busy year with both myself and now husband starting a new job, getting married and then training for a new job at work. We also spent much time in 2013 looking for a new rental property that was a bit more spacious and modern and planning our honeymoon. So it stood to reason that i wouldn’t be as dedicated to outside project.

I was lapse in posting on this blog; partially because i was extremely busy but partially because i was just as lazy with actually completing my bucket list items! Which meant i had few experiences to write about and no photo’s to share.

I also had some failures….i attempted to do a pinterest project every month for a year and fell over within 2 months! And i set myself a goodreads challenge of reading 24 books. And can you believe it…..i only made it to 22!!!! I must admit i am quite disappointed to be just two books away but that has just lit my fire to jump back into it for 2014.

I suppose thought i shouldn’t be quite so critical i did cross a few things off my list last year.

In 2013 i……

  • Made out with someone with pop rocks in my mouth
  • Built a blanket fort with someone i love
  • Kissed at the top of a Ferris wheel
  • Learnt how to use chopsticks
  • Built a gingerbread house
  • Tried chocolate covered bacon
  • Ate eggs in onion rings
  • Wore a beautiful wedding dress

and of course…..Married the love of my life!

Not too shabby but not too great. Of course i wouldn’t trade marrying my wonderful Husband for any of my other bucket list items but i just wanted to have done more in the year. So for 2014 i’m looking to complete some larger items and get started on some of the things on my list that might take a little longer or take more effort.

More information to come on my 2014 plans but for now; hope you’ve all enjoyed your New Years celebrations and i’m going to be a good this coming year and i’m throwing away the title of ‘bad blogger’!

A Quick March Update

Just a bit of a quick update to say how things are going this month!

I just turned 25 last week so there will be a post to come about that shortly šŸ™‚ I had decided on a March pinterest project but then went shopping and forgot to pick up the supplies so that is on hold temporarily…..oops!

But in the ‘going very well’ category is the Goodreads 2013 Reading challenge! I’ve pledged to read 24 books this year which will be quite a challengeĀ  as i’ve just started a new job and i’m also planning my wedding which is later this year! So far though i’ve actually managed to read 5 books which puts me one book ahead of schedule!

You can see the books i’ve read so far on my Goodreads Challenge Page or on my “In Progress Page”

That’s all for now; as i mentioned just a quick hello and an update but there will also be a post soon about turning a quarter of a century old! Oh my!

And away we go!

Welcome to my Bucket and a Half of life Blog; you may have guessed by my blog name that it is all about my Bucket List; yep, all of those things i want to do before i die. Or on occasions just other interesting things i’ve found to do.

Hopefully some of the things that i want to do or have already done might be of interest to someone or perhaps i’ll inspire someone else to start or finish their very only bucket list!

Either way, welcome aboard and away we go!
