When I was looking through Pinterest I saw some pictures showing how to make Jolly Rancher suckers and I knew I had to add it to my list! I love hard candy and lollypops so I knew that I would love making these suckers. They were really easy to make and they tasted amazing!

Number 35. Play beer pong. Crossed off 1/14/2014
This is a classic college game some might even say that it is a rite of passage! Since I did not go to a four year college, I never really had a chance to play it. This is one list item that I did not plan ahead of time. My friend knew that this was on my bucket list and while we were at the store before going to my house she asked if I wanted to cross it off the night of course I said yes because I love crossing things off my bucket list . We played the game that night I was not very good at it but it was a lot of fun! It was worth playing.

#43 become a vegetarian . Crossed off 9/1/12
I had tried to be a vegetarian before but it did not last very long because I was not prepared and I had not done research about how to eat right. When I decided to cross off this list item I did lots of research and I set a date when I was going to go Vegetarian. I was successful this time and I have been a vegetarian for almost three years now! I love being a vegetarian I have gotten to try all kinds of food that I probably would have not tried before.

#84 eat an entire bottle of whipped cream in one sitting . Crossed off 11/26/12
Now this one was pretty easy but also crazy to cross off , I bought a bottle of whipped cream and then when I got home I sat down in the living room and I started to empty the can it was fun because I have a major sweet tooth but I started to feel a little sick after a while so I drank some water. I was happy when I was finally finished. I’m glad I did this one but I don’t want to do it again. 004 006 066

#90 try deep fried Twinkies crossed off 6/23/12
Trying new food can be lots of fun so I decided to put this on my list because I knew that it would be very interesting to try. One summer day at the boardwalk I decided to cross this list item off. The deep fried Twinkies were pretty good, it was not amazing but it is worth trying at least once.

This one was pretty easy to cross off I just walked up and bought a balloon. Even though it was easy it was really fun carrying it back to the hotel. As I write this my balloon is floating in my room and I love looking at it.

I crossed this one off during my first year of having a bucket list! I remember how excited I was to cross it off.

Even though we did not get to go on the tour it was still so amazing I loved the gift shop and a got some cute things that I still have today! The outside of the building was also really cute and there were cars decorated with a jelly bean pattern. I hope I can go back some day and take the tour!
