Bucket List Goal Completed: Visit a Haunted Location

On September 14, we finally made it to the Ohio State Reformatory. The word is that it is a haunted location. So I can officially cross visiting a haunted location off of the bucket list. I didn’t see anything but I did smell chicken noodle soup. There was no chicken noodle soup anywhere. In theContinue reading “Bucket List Goal Completed: Visit a Haunted Location”

Bucket List Goal Completed: Renaissance Fair

Everybody, this was the year! We finally made it to the Ohio Renaissance Festival!! For at least 20 years, I’ve been trying to go to the Ohio Renaissance Festival. During the last 3 years, the chances to go were so close but somehow kept slipping through our fingers. We had the gas money and ticketsContinue reading “Bucket List Goal Completed: Renaissance Fair”

Bucket List Goal Completed: Visit Caverns. Whispering Cave, Hocking Hills

The last time that we went on vacation was in 2014. We’ve taken day trips occasionally but not too many overnights far from home. It’s not because we didn’t want to but the bank account was saying “No way dude. Stay home.” So this year, we went to Hocking Hills State Park to see theContinue reading “Bucket List Goal Completed: Visit Caverns. Whispering Cave, Hocking Hills”

Bucket List Goal Complete: Kayaking

  The original plan on my birthday was to try standup paddleboarding. The other plan was to lay in bed, take cough medicine and watch Dexter. Since the kid and the boyfriend were home and I wasn’t feeling tooooo bad, we decided to go to Put-in-Bay and possibly try kayaking. It was a pretty goodContinue reading “Bucket List Goal Complete: Kayaking”

Bucket List Goal Complete: The Butterfly House

      I’ve always wanted to go to The Butterfly House on Put-in-Bay. So we finally went last week. We wanted to stay longer but they said, “You don’t have to go home but you can’t stay.” I’m paraphrasing.   Since the lost bucket list fiasco a few years ago, I keep track ofContinue reading “Bucket List Goal Complete: The Butterfly House”

a to z bucket list: Squid at Sushi Bar

Octopus on left, Squid on the right. Butterfly roll in the back. The squid was kind of plain. The octopus was almost impossible to eat without shark teeth or a sharp knife. I didn’t have either of those things.  The butterfly roll has eel, shrimp, avocado and cucumber. It was delicious.  In this one plate,Continue reading “a to z bucket list: Squid at Sushi Bar”

a to z bucket list: Waterfall

A few weeks ago, I read an article about the waterfall at Brandywine Falls at Cuyahoga Valley National Park. So I dragged Lucas along. Not really, he drove. I just had the plan and the directions. It was totally worth the drive to see the waterfall. There are also hiking trails if you’re into thatContinue reading “a to z bucket list: Waterfall”

A to Z Challenge: Matching shirts

Originally, I was going to ride a mechanical bull. Unfortunately, I don’t live close to one and I ran out of time. So a lot of time has been spent researching bucket list goals that start with the letter M. I didn’t have a goal that fit the bill so I added one at theContinue reading “A to Z Challenge: Matching shirts”
