Wowza, to see my Biscuit Bucket List actually on the wall, IN the biscuit shop, is better than amazing!! This is huge..and yes, it's literally huge. This all started as a wish list between myself and my oldest girlfriend, MaryKatherine (really, she is older!). Around the office I would say, "one day, I'll have a REAL shop" and it would be followed by one of us saying "put it on the list". We called this list the Biscuit Bucket List.
Once I realized opening a shop was really going to happen I knew the bucket list was something I wanted to share with my customers. You see, I'm ONLY here baking biscuits in this shop thanks to my customers. To have customers involved in every journey possible is really important when it comes to the shop. It's always better, more fun and faster to obtain goals with help, right? So why not share my bucket list for me & the biscuits.
My Biscuit Bucket List is compiled of goals I would LOVE to achieve for the shop. Other items on there are people I would have an outright FIT to have as customers. This is a forever growing list, of course!! We have MSU Coaches and athletes on this list..our boys were very specific about putting their favorites on here!! I have a few lady athletes to add!!! Others our customers have suggested (remember..I love having my customers involved) and some are MINE. Mr Otis Williams of The Temptations would literally send me right to the ugly crying, boo hooing..oh my goodness he is really in my shop kind of fit!! Music is a huge trigger for me with memories. A good song will change my mood in a second. When my brother, Randle, and I were little our mom would come through our bedroom door with a vacuum going and music blaring. Y'all, I mean EARLY on a Saturday morning. We would want her to hurry and get out so fast. But today, that sound is such a good memory. When momma had the Temptations going and cleaning the house we knew it was going to be a good day. For me, the Tempation's music are good days!! And I would love to share something of mine with them. For me their voices are the meaning of calming, it's gonna be a good day feelings. I would just love to pass something back to them.
Ellen..well this fiesty lady is the Pay it Forward queen!!!! I would like to think that she had my family on her show a few years back because of our pay it forward attitudes. Today, I try to continue this as much as possible (see our Mary Jar post). To have Ellen share the love of a Mary Biscuit would be CRAZY amazing, don't cha think!?
And last, Michael Oher..are you kidding me!? Talk about someone with amazing ambition, heart of gold and an attitude we all should have!!!! Seeing names, like his, on my shop wall are constant reminders that I can achieve ANY goal I set my mind to. Do I need someone else's approval??? Heck no!! I'm well aware of my talents, skills and I'm going to give that 200% every day. Will I fail, yup! But failing means I'm learning what not to do and what I should do better. I'm okay with that.
Here it is today...check out my Biscuit Bucket List.
