Do you have a bucket list?
I wrote my first bucket list at 9, and have been updating it annually ever since. While a few things have dropped off the list as I aged (like acting in a television commercial and writing a hit pop song), a few have been crossed off because I’ve accomplished them. I’ve visited New York, ran a 10k, toured the Lord of the Rings Hobbiton set in New Zealand, appeared on national television and published a book sold on shelves at Chapters nationally. I’ve bungeed, trapeezed, skydived, learned to play roller derby, swam with sharks, rode in a helicopter, shot an AK47 and learned to surf. (Check out some of the photos-or-it-didn’t-happen shots below.)
Here’s my current bucket list:
- Take cooking classes in Thailand
- Hike the West Coast trail in British Columbia
- Have a beer at Oktoberfest in Munich
- Attend Burning Man and Bonnaroo
- Swim with dolphins
- See the Northern Lights in Yellowknife
- Run a half marathon
I was inspired to revisit my Bucket List because KFC is launching a #KFCBucketList contest on May 12. From May 12 until June 15, with the purchase of any bucket or combo, you’ll receive a game card that gives you a 1 in 3 chance of winning your ultimate bucket list! There are three grand prizes of $10,000 to build your own dream vacation, plus:
- 5 – $5,000 Earth to Echo Adventures
- 5 – $10,000 Pepsi Dream Rooms
- 40 – $300 Try That Prizes
- Over 3 Million Shutterfly Prizes
- Over 1 Million Food Prizes
As part of the #KFCBucketList promotion, I’m giving away a Shutterfly prize pack of a Shutterfly calendar, 15 free cards and collage print. Readers can apply across blogs, but they may only win once per household. Enter below and tell me what’s on your bucket list!
