My Bucket List - 2014

Everyone has a bucket list, even if they don't call it by that name. I always have ever changing goals, whether they are to get a load of laundry done or to fly halfway across the world. This is the first time I've written mine down on a piece of paper. This is my Bucket List as of July, 2014.

Short Term:

  • Make my own Root Beer and Ginger Ale- It can be done and I know I can do it! We don't buy pop so this will be a great experience for the whole family.
  • Grow Veggies in the Winter- This is a new goal for me. This is my first year with a big garden and I'm looking for ways to extend my growing.
  • Make my Children's Mattresses- You read that right. I plan to do it this winter with buckwheat hulls and cotton!

Long Term:

  • Take my Children to Disney World- I went when I was a kid and I have made a promise to take my boys when they are a bit older. Money is the biggest obstacle so we are saving now even though our boys are only 2 and 5.
  • Be Self Sustainable- Someday I want to depend on no one but ourselves and our community for most of our basic needs. I want to grow our own food or buy it locally. I want to have solar or wind power to generate our own electricity.
  • Go to Italy- This is something my husband and I want to do together. Both of our family's are from there and some of his still live there.
  • Go Skydiving- Another one I want to do with my husband. I've wanted to do this since I watched the Power Rangers Movie in the 90's!

I'm sure some of these will change by next year but it's still fun!

Gorgeous Hawaiian Flowers

Hawaiian flower arrangements are exquisite and are the perfect choice for special occasion gifts or thank yous or to decorate your own home or office with a splash of color. You can even order a six-month or twelve-month Year of Flowers program so that you pre-order your upcoming gifts or make purchases for yourself.

The flowers in these arrangements are grown on local Hawaiian farms, are shipped the same day as hand picked, making them the freshest possible so that they will arrive by FedEx bursting with brilliant life and amazing colors. They are carefully packed in an insulated Hawaiian-motif gift box and include a personalized gift card.

There are Mixed Tropicals and so many other unique flowers, such as Elegant Exotic Orchids with the brightest and most radiant long lasting blooms in shades of lavender and purple, Heart-Shaped Anthuriums in a variety of brightly colored flowers and beautiful leaves and a long vase life, Live Orchid Plants that are hearty and will bloom and re-bloom indoors for a long time and provide a beautiful scent, or perhaps a Traditional Lei that is hand woven fresh every day and is strung with hundreds of flowers, nuts, or vines and can be worn as a welcome gift or to commemorate a special occasion.

Keep the Spirit of Aloha alive and share the magic of Hawaiian flowers.
