Bucket Bracelets

I know I have been blogging A LOT lately but I have to get this entry in before the end of the year. 

I have so many friends who are making life goals and accomplishing dreams. I'm talking running after their dreams with all they have and accomplishing them!!! I have an idea and I am calling them Bucket Bracelets. I'm bringing back the charm bracelet (James Avery will be proud). I am urging all my sisters to get a BRAND NEW charm bracelet (if the only one you have has high school accomplishments and choir notes, like mine). We are starting fresh with a new bracelet and adding charms when we accomplish these life goals. 

Why "Bucket"? Watch the movie The Bucket List. It's a little slow going but it really is one of the reasons I have decided to run that marathon NOW! The basic idea is to make a list of things you want to do before you "kick the bucket"/die. I'm reminded of the Tim McGraw song where he went "sky diving, rocky mountain climbing, and 2.7 seconds on a bull with a names I cannot spell"  

Here are examples of how I would give charms 
for Bucket Bracelets to my friends:
Christina gets a Palm Tree for going on a Long term mission trip to Indonesia. I know this won't be her last but YAY for starting on that journey!!! You totally inspired me in ways you DO not know!!!

Jenny H gets a wedding charm because she is down to the same weight she was on the day she got married. I am looking for her a leg charm because her legs are about to be hotter than they already are!

I'm gonna go ahead and post the picture of the shoe because I will finish that marathon. 

Make a list of things you want to do before you die and start the process of doing them. It's the new year! Make some goals and set up some steps to achieve them. 



  1. I love it. :) Let me know when you find that 'leg' charm. LOL! Love you!
