better late than never, the 2011 bckngruvmom bucket list
At the end of 2010, many of my fellow women bloggers wrote fabulous bucket lists of what they wanted to do in the upcoming year. I was not that organized at the end of the year, and I was trying to avoid writing about new years resolutions in general. I did think about 2011 in terms of what I wanted to do in abundance, but now I have my bucket list!
On the previously mentioned lists, I added what I wanted to do in the comment section on several. At the top of my wish list for 2011 was taking my mom to Vegas. With so much going on, why would this be at the top of my list? Well, you have to read my list to find out!
My mom has not been to Las Vegas since the 1980’s when she saw Diana Ross from the front row at Caesar’s Palace. I was a little girl at the time, so I was at home with grandma! It was not until years later that I fell in love with the excitement of Las Vegas. I have been wanting to hit Vegas up on a girls trip with my mom for many years now. Unfortunately, my mom has a very bad back which would make walking around Vegas extremely hard. On Tuesday, my mom is having surgery to correct her back, and then she truly will get her groove back! Hopefully, by the end of 2011, my backngroovemom and I will “Viva Las Vegas.”
In 2011, I hope to keep “getting my groove back.” I will continue to struggle with scheduling, finding patience, and transition. However, I want to find successful ways to handle these mommy issues and share them with you here on Backngroovemom. The Backngroovemom Blog has a lot in the bucket and will continue to evolve including information on these subjects. You can look forward to much more on organization, work/life balance, great guests, bra reviews, and intimacy after children.
Which brings me to the Braduct! I have been staying on schedule with my prototype so far, and being able to market my braduct in 2011 holds a big spot in my bucket list. I am so excited about how many of my fellow moms have offered to test market for me, and I look forward to your feedback. This will make me even closer to being able to provide every bra-wearing woman with a braduct!
Continuing with the Braduct, next month StartupNation will roll out their 2011 Moms In Business Contest. Reading about the 2010 winners, was a fabulous source of inspiration for me, and I am hoping to steal a spot in 2011. Don’t worry – I will keep reminding you of this contest as the year goes on……
More on the personal level, I want to go to New York City with my boys this year. We have visited many major cities, but my boys have never seen THE BIG APPLE! Although football and basketball is always at the top of their list, I want to experience the culture of NYC and the amazing food (especially NY bagels) with them.
Another drop in the bucket for me will be climbing up Sycamore Street on Mt. Washington, Pittsburgh on my bicycle. My “hubs” is a regular for going up and down Mt. Washington several times in a row – I just want to make it up once! I am spinning away all winter trying to build up my stamina!
AND, of course, this list would not be complete without adding a 7th Super Bowl win for the Pittsburgh Steelers on the morning after they won the AFC Championship. My boys are 7 and 10 years old, and this will be the 3rd time that they will see the Steelers go to the Super Bowl! It will be unbelievable to add another trophy to the 6 we already have!!
Have you added anything to your list since the year started?
