Today’s Mama.com has partnered with Just Ask to give away several AMAZING trips and oodles of cash...all in the name of spreading awareness about a test that help inform you about your breast and ovarian cancer risk.

What better way to remind us all to keep an eye on our health, than to ponder all of the great things we want to do with our life?

In honor of the Just Ask Bucket List Getaway Giveaway, I thought I would share my “bucket list”.

Take my family to the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. I lived in Albuquerque until I was 12. It was completely normal to have balloons float frightening close to your house every October. I have to experience this with my kids. I’m going to spend the first morning mass ascension just taking photos of their faces as they watch hundreds of balloons inflate and rise into the sky.

Spend a week at Las Olas surf camp...with Rachael. Not sure if she was looking for company, but TOO BAD, HERRSCHER.

Attend the Telluride Blues and Brews Festival.

Take my family on a week-long rafting trip through the Grand Canyon.

Take my family to Walt Disney World for New Year’s Eve. My husband asked me to marry him in Disney World as the fireworks exploded on New Year’s Eve 2000. Going back with the two small people we made would be so cool.

Spend a week in an over-the-water hut in Bora Bora with my husband.

Bora Bora

Adopt a Goldendoodle.

Dine at Wayfare Tavern in San Francisco. Possibly catch a glimpse of Tyler Florence...

Learn to make gnocchi. Really well.

Brew my own beer. Exceptionally well.

Learn to quilt.

Ride in the MS150 with my Mom. (She rides in it almost every year. I am lazy. I’m going to work on that.)

Take my folks on an epic vacation. The kind of vacation that says, “Hey, thanks for raising me, hugging me, putting me through college and doing all of the things that I never noticed until I became a parent myself.”

Host an outdoor movie night in my backyard. Every summer. :)

See one of my photographs hanging in an art show.

Now, go check out all of the details on how to share your own bucket list for a chance to win, a family vacation to Universal Orlando® Resort, A Las Olas Surf Safari, Family Winter Vacation Getaway at Park City Mountain Resort.

Don't Knock My Bucket List

My husband and I decided to create Bucket Lists, even before our Just Ask Getaway Giveaway began. As I handed my list over, I said, "You can't make fun of or discourage any of my items." Two seconds later he broke into hysterical laughter.

What’s On Your Summer Bucket List

More than any other season, summer brings with it the promise of unadulterated joy. The kind of fun that is marked by shrieks of laugher when someone squirts you with the hose unexpectedly.
