30+Pretty Epic Bucket List Goals for 2018

Where did 2017 go?! How many goals did you complete? New Year, means new list, here’s my goals for 2018. Some things I have from last year, but a lot of these are new. Here are some past goals for the last years.

Goals for 2018


Honestly, I love traveling and taking road trips to new places and meeting new people. But I need to get my own place before I do any big travel plans honestly. But with that said, I want to see more than the east coast. I want to go the west coast & Nashville again or maybe New York around Christmas time, I’m a huge Christmas lights fan!

  • Visit Nashville
  • Climb A Mountain
  • Visit West Coast
  • Fly on a plane
  • Ride on a train


I blogged more within 2017, but I did take more breaks, where I didn’t blog at all. However, I had more brands contact me, which is always a win-win. I want to make more blogging tips, tutorials style posts.

  • Attend a Blogger Conference
  • Stay Active Month to Month
  • Maintain $100/month in sponsored posts
  • Make more blogger friends


Something I have struggle with since getting a divorce is getting my life together. Honestly, I just didn’t have a great foundation to stand on with bad jobs on top of bad jobs. But I finally have a job I love and I’m in a good place. So this will be the year of getting my life together, FINALLY!

  • Buy a home
  • Invest in a car
  • Learn a new hobby
  • Get 5 tattoos
  • take online classes
  • buy insurance (Dental & Medical for Hailey & I – So excited!!)

Weight Loss

Last year, I lost 70 pounds, which is pretty amazing within itself, I got myself a gym membership and go weekly. I want to continue doing that and cutting out junk food & sweet drinks. Cut back on eating out & alcohol. I want to get under 200 this year, this is my main goal in this section!

  • Lose 15 | 25 | 35 | 45 | 55 pounds
  • hit goal weight of 200 pounds (or less)
  • Sign up for a 5k race
  • Set weekly goals at the gym
  • Find a gym buddy


I really wish I focus on this when I was younger and actually build my credit and not let things mess it up, I am paying for this now. Though in my defense, it’s all medical, lol. I am already building my credit, so far so good. I am proud of myself.

  • Move $100/month to savings account
  • Cut back on useless spending
  • Build Credit Score
  • Pay off medical debt
  • Make at least $100 from Etsy monthly

Music & Entertainment

Let’s just say, I didn’t do a lot of saving in 2017, because I went to like 7-ish concerts, but at the same time, I am NOT complaining. I was able to see lots of awesome artist and meet them as well! Can’t wait to see what this year brings in concerts, always life changing!

  • Go to at least 5 concerts
  • See A new band in concert
  • See a board way musical
  • Go to drink & paint class
  • Take a dancing class

I like to keep my goals each year, super simple. So there’s a better chance of them actually getting completed. I don’t want them too out there, that it’s not a chance in the world, you know? Here are my past bucket list goals: 2014, 2015 & 2017.
