Remember last year when I wrote a list of 101 things to accomplish in the next 1001 days? Well, a little over 350 days have past so I wanted to give an update on a few things I’ve crossed off! (Hint: not as many as I should!) Here is a sampling from the list, and you can always read the full 101 Things in 1001 Days list here.
Here are a few items I’ve crossed off the list:
Work on my taste in music… I tend to lean toward the Nicki Minaj and Bruno Mars variety
(I have a great friend, Mama D, who has great taste in music and is fearlessly helping me with this task! This is hard for me.)
Plant a tree (We planted the Weeping Yoshino Cherry Tree in the backyard.)
Roast some marshmallows and make s’mores (We got a firepit, which made this one easy! Here.)
Learn photoshop (Got Photoshop for Christmas 2012 and I love it!)
Start a collection of coffee table books (Design Sponge, The Sartorialist, Bringing Nature Home)
Have our neighbors over for dinner (Complete with leaving a note in their mailbox. It was fun!)
Give up soft drinks for a month (January 2013)
Give up soft drinks for a year (This one is in progress. 2013 is the year of no soft drinks.)
Visit my sister in Greenville, SC (May 2013, Anna’s graduation from Furman!)
And here are a few things I’m going to be checking off my list this summer. Some sound easy and some make me wonder what I was thinking when I wrote this list. Like… #27. Run a marathon?! Oh dear. Someone save me!
23. Learn how to make my own vegetable stock
24. Go Paleo for a month
25. Knit something
26. Go to the High Museum
27. Run a marathon
28. Go fishing
29. Volunteer at a Habitat House
30. Pay for someone else’s coffee in the drive-thru line
31. Read a big biographical novel
75. Grow a topiary
76. Paint something on canvas
77. Go strawberry picking
78. See a movie in the theatre by myself
80. Send 10 handwritten letters
81. Do a time capsule!
82. Learn to change a tire
I have no idea if the full 101 Things list is going to be complete by November of 2014. If not, I think I’ll look at the items I did accomplish and be glad I made a list to keep track of these fun ideas and events.
