Of Your Utmost Importance.

July's question of the month in Real Simple magazine is:
"What are the top-three things on your lifelong to-do list?"

Since I am a rebel and never could follow the rules, here's my response:

1. Hold, enjoy, and love on my grandchildren. (Mrs. R, are you getting this?)
2. Finally work up enough courage to get a tattoo just above my boo-tay.
3. Go to Fiji and Hawaii.
4. Sit front row at a Simon and Garfunkel concert. (Oh please, please Art & Simon--reunite!)
5. Live long enough to see a cure for all forms of cancer. I hate cancer.
6. Go to Fiji and Hawaii.
7. Own a house on Hilton Head Island, SC.
8. Return to Ireland.
9. Go to Fiji and Hawaii with my husband/best friend, children and grandchildren.
10. Hear "Well done, thy good and faithful servant" the second my life on earth ends.
And that's the mainest thing, as my husband's late, "3rd" grandmother, Esther, would say.

OK y'all...sharing time. What are the top-three things on your lifelong to-do list? Let's talk amongst ourselves. I've given you the topic.

OK, OK...I'll give you #11: Squeeze Jason Statham's boo-tay and declare my undying love (obsession) for him.

Scotty says the same--but not for Jason, duh--Katherine Heigl's his girl. Whatever.

Wow, having to think this hard before 8am is too much. Here's my list.

1) Live long enough to see both my girls marry and their kids marry.

2) Travel to England with my hubby & kids.

3) Finally get up the courage to get a tattoo.

I love this question and will get around to answering it...but wanted to encourage you to get that tattoo above your boo-tay! I got one a couple of years ago on my annual girl's weekend away...we all did! I LOVE is custom made..maybe I'll have to take a pic and post it on my blog!!!:):) It is the whale I have drawn attached to my name since I was in junior high . My last name is "Whale" n !!! ANyways, it was fun and didn't hurt...we put on embla( oops spelling) cream which sort of froze it a bit!! Here's to tattoos!!! Have a great day! Karyne
PS..I am following you on twitter ...i believe my twitter is swile67..i am new to it!!

Heather said...

Oh where to begin here...

Top three things?

1. Write a novel.
2. Meet Paula Deen.
3. Own a house on the beach.

Okay, I have a Twitter account and I have to get it going. I don't want to miss out on know how I am.

Oh, and I am totally taking you to get a tattoo.

KimmyJ said...

1. Write a Novel
2. Open a bakery
3. Inspire other women to live their dreams.

I already got a tatoo above my hiney. A butterfly dedicated to my daughter who was killed - 11 of her family and friends went together and the guy ended up doing mine for free - now ain't that the sweetest thing you ever heard.

Sheri said...

Well, I already have the artwork in that spot . . . an Iris that has my brothers initials (killed in a car accident), so . . .

1. Save a life
2. Deliver a baby
3. Be the best that I can be

scargosun said...

1. Own a house on Cape Cod
2. Write a book
3. Make my home "A Soft Place to Land" (love her blog description)

Thanx for the Jason eye candy. My fave film is still The Italian Job with him.

Lula! said...

Scargosun--HANDSOME ROB FOREVER. The Italian Job was the beginning of my love (obsession) for him. Sigh...

Gina said...

Just watched the Italian Job again....
I refuse to make a bucket list. Maybe if I know the bucket is near....

insane mama said...

LOve love Jason on the Italian Job
and I am with you on squeezing his bootay

1. Write a book
2. Take cooking classes (seriously)
3. Forgive

insane mama said...

in the Italian Job,
not on
Coffee... need more coffee

Kat said...

Deep thoughts...
1. Admit to my friends that I am really a flaming liberal and hope that they'll still talk to me.
2. Travel
3. Get my head in gear and finally write my PhD dissertation so I don't have to call myself an abd anymore...and for the fame and glory of being Mr. and Dr. Kat...

Mrs. R said...

1. End up related to Lula.

2. Live on Hilton Head Island in a house between Lula and Heather

3. See my son marry the love of his life (Libby) like I did.

TentCamper said...

Statham is cool, but I'll steer clear of his Boo-Tay.

For me:
1. Build a beach cottage and live in Bali
2. Become an author
3. Always remember that Family is First

KimmyJ said...

I'm surprised at how many of us are interested in writing. That is so cool. We might have to add another area to SITS that features writing samples.

Carrie said...

Well, I am all about the writing thing. I can't imagine how cool it would be to have the title of published author.

I wouldn't mind going along to the Simon and Garfunkel concert, but they'd have to sing Mrs. Robinson and At The Zoo because for all the money it would cost, we should all get to make requests.

I want to have Oprah say I inspire her.

A girl can dream big, right?

swile67 said...

okay i'm are 3...4...5..
1) return to Paris
2) get married
3) have my own talk show

LaQuintamomof3 said...

Debbie said...

Kells said...

My Three.

1) Start a magazine.

2) Go to Hawaii. Which leads me to add, we should get together there while vacationing for some 'ritas on the beach.

3) Travel through Europe with my Man, writing a novel as we go.

iPost said...

Only can think of one right now. Get my photography shown in print media or in a gallery before I die!

2. Live to see my grandchildren give
their lives to Jesus

LaQuintamomof3 said...

Thanks so much for the comment! I really appreciate it.
Hey, just for the record, the youngest has started potty training and will do it for Ms.Jenny-- completely on HER terms at home. And no "poopy" in the potty yet. Oh, the fun of it all!
Have a grat weekend.
