FINISHED! #220 Kiss in the rain

     I was with the man of my dreams the other day. It was just a random normal day and I really haven't worked on my bucket list at all, so I wasn't really planning to check one off the list. Anyway, it was raining and beautiful outside (I love the rain.) Everything smelled fresh and beautiful and I was walking to get into my car and my darling looked at me and said something along the lines of, "Don't get in yet, let's kiss in the rain." He didn't know that it was on my bucket list, or that it was even something I would remotely want to do. He was just being adorable and insanely romantic. It just reinforces my theory that we are truly meant to be together. <3

FINISHED!! #152.Try every kind of girl scout cookie

When I made my list I thought that this particular thing on my list would be a little harder than it actually was. I was under the impression that over several years I would have to seek out various Girl Scouts, and buy a box or two at a time, until I eventually conquered them all. It's really funny how things work out sometimes.

I ended up trying every kind of Girl Scout cookie in one night.

My daughter, who is six and in Kindergarten, is what some would call a miscreant. I just call her Kate. Anyway, she gets in trouble in school a lot, and the teacher thought some of this might be due to the fact that she is an only child. Because of this, I decided that she needed a way to be more social outside of school. I thought Girl Scouts would be a good option.

I called the Girl Scouts in our area, and unfortunately, there wasn't a troop that was accepting new members nearby, so of course, being the awesome mom that I am, I started a troop at my daughter's school. We had to do several types of training, and around cookie selling time, we had to go to something called "Cookie College", where we learned the protocol for selling cookies, and what kinds of cookies there were. Part of this training, the best part in my opinion, was that we had to try all of the cookies.

I always thought my favorite Girl Scout cookie was Thin Mints, which seems to be the most popular of all the cookies. I learned that day that Peanut Butter Sandwich cookies are amazing though. I also learned that people who like Mango Cremes are freaks of nature, because EW!

Finished! # 241 Own a pair of super hero underwear

     I am OBSESSED with Wonder Woman! She is everything I want to be as a woman. Smart, strong, independent  and busty. I especially wish I was as busty as Wonder Woman. I also love it that she is brunette. :D I love Wonder Woman so much, that I even have a tattoo of the Wonder Woman symbol on my ankle. So, when I decided to add own a pair of super hero underwear to my bucket list, I did so with her in mind.
     Over the last year, since I made my list, I have seen Batman, Superman, and even Aqua man panties, but couldn't find Wonder Woman! Until yesterday. I was bra shopping at Target with the thought of my Bucket list no where in sight, when I glimpsed some Batman panties. I went over to check them out, and behold! Wonder Woman panties one shelf down! They were even glittery and pink! Sorry, but I am not including a photo of my underpants on my blog. :)

FINISHED! #125 Try Nutella

     The other day at the grocery store, I saw snack sized containers of Nutella at the register when we were checking out. On impulse I bought one.
     When I returned home, I opened it and gave it a try. It was good. It tasted sort of like a Reese's peanut butter cup. I was surprised at how bad for you it actually is. I was under the impression that Nutella was a healthier option as far as snacks are concerned, but in reality, it is packed with sugar, which disappointed me slightly.

FINISHED!!! #190 Bake someone a cake.

      This is Dave. He is the co-owner of the best bowling alley in the entire universe, Lakeshore Lanes. Dave was kind enough to let me cross off throwing a pie in someone's face, from my list. I did that in the parking lot of Lakeshore, and to one of his employees to boot! Anyway, that day, I learned of Dave's fondness for anything sugary pretty much, so I decided to make him something to thank him for his assistance with my bucket list.
      So I decided to make him cookies and cream cheesecake cupcakes. Needless to say, he was very happy, and I get to cross something else off my list.

FINISHED! #224 Be A Bridesmaid

          To all of you ladies out there who dream of being in your gal pal's wedding...think about it! When my darling friend Candace asked me to be in her wedding, I didn't really think about what went along with that, I just joyfully accepted. Now, don't get me wrong, I love Candace, and I loved being a part of her special day, but let's face it...i'm broke. I have zero dollars, all the time.
      We went dress shopping first, and Candi was gracious enough to let us each pick out our own gown as long as it was baby blue. I fell in love with my gown, i'm the fat one on the left by the way, and almost had a heart attack when I saw the price tag. Everyone decided to buy their dresses right then, on the spot, even though we were supposed to just be shopping around and getting ideas. I had absolutely no money and everyone was talking about what would happen if the color got discontinued. I started to panic. I actually had to borrow the money to pay for it, which made me feel like shit quite honestly. I paid it back as promptly as possible, but I don't like to borrow money. Ever. Under any circumstance.
     After I had the dress, there were bridal expos to go to. There were several advantages and disadvantages of going to these. The advantages were hanging out with Candace and eating free cupcakes. The disadvantages were that there were a lot of people there, and I get nervous around large crowds. Also, there was a lot of walking around, and it is kind of boring.
     Next came the planning of the bachelorette party. The maid of honor wanted to stay in a hotel and rent a car and do all of these things that cost a lot of money. I don't have any money, so I had to party poop a little. I told her that if we were going to do all of the things that she wanted to do, I wouldn't be able to afford my share, and therefore, would be unable to attend. I really hated being "that girl" but when you can't afford something, you just can't! THEN, when plans were actually set, they made the bachelor party and the bachelorette party on the exact same day at the exact same time. Now, this would normally be fine, but my daughter's father was also in the wedding, and so it came down to, only one of us could go to the party. He ended up staying home to watch our daughter, in the end, and I went to the party. It was okay, except that I had to spend the night with a bunch of girls that I don't know very well, so I felt kind of awkward.
     Next came the rehearsal dinner which would have been okay, except that my daughter's father and I kept fighting. I don't think he realized that he actually had to do stuff besides stand there on the wedding day, and so he was an ass through the entire process really.
     The next day was the wedding. It was beautiful! I almost cried. Twice actually. The first time, when the photographer had me standing and posing for what seemed like an eternity, and the second, when I saw my friend walk down the aisle and marry the man that she loves. It made all the other shit worth it, just to see her so happy.
