My Bucket List 2014 - Half Year Update ♥

We're over halfway through the year so I thought it was time to give you all a little update of where I am in my Bucket List 2014 and how many things I've been able to cross off it. It's good to look back and reflect on what goals I've already been able to tick off my list but also to look back and see if the rest of the things I wanted to achieve are still attainable in this second half of the year, unfortunately some aren't. Out of a list of 50 things I've so far managed to cross 21 things off my list, not bad going at all! Some things just aren't going to be achievable though, we won't get to holiday outside of Europe. We wanted to go to Morocco but it just wasn't somewhere I felt I could take Tyler Lee yet as it would be too hot for him. I'd love to take him to swimming lessons but getting into my togs, in a pool, in front of other people -eek! I really want to learn to sew but I must hop to it, if anyone has any good tutorial website for sewing please do let me know of it in the comments box. As for baking a dessert of cake every two weeks, I did until I began my Herbalife journey on April 30th, I just can't be around sweet treats like that, I know I'd eat them all! Writing more letters has gone out the window as I just don't have the time. I really want a spa day, I think I may look into taking Jacek for his birthday just to get one! I didn't give up chocolate for Lent, bold Fiona. The rest of the things on the list I'm hoping to get done and will try my best to do them all. I've added in links below to some of the things I've completed and the story behind them.
