Our Pre-Baby Bucket List

I’ve had a rough go with my pregnancy from constant sickness to migraines.  To celebrate the days instead of count the ailments, we made a pre-baby bucket list ticking away the days until baby.  Plus, it helps us to celebrate the time we have left just us two (although we can’t wait to become three!)

Pre-Baby Bucket List

  1. Spontaneous 1:20p Friday Cubs Game 
  2. Cocktails & mocktails at RM Champagne Lounge on the patio
  3. Dinner on a rooftop downtown
  4. Check out Adler After Dark
  5. Movies in the Park with Rocco
  6. Spend a day at Oak Street Beach 
  7. Ride on the Architecture Boat Tour
  8. Book our first non-preggers vacation
  9. Enjoy a picnic in the park (recreating our engagement)

Meet Jen

I’ve always had a love affair with creation. Since I was a child, I handmade my gifts or combined toys to design something new. Fast forward twenty years, and I’m still making my gifts every holiday and designing new ways to do things.
