101 in 1001 Update (Almost Done!)

Oh. Guys. The struggle is real. Look at all the things I still have to do!!!! I’ve already come to terms with the fact that some of these will just not happen (like the 365 project where you take one picture every day for a year. Uhhhh that time has passed. And let’s be real, running 100 miles in one month is just not going to happen. Nope.) I did knock a few more items off my list, so that’s good, right?

Before the list shows up, did you notice the black bar across the page? Look at it, I added a new page! Now I can update my list in real time! Ok, let’s have a look and what I still need to do in the next few months…

Yes, It’s Another List

Summer is officially here, and with that comes all of the fun activities summer has to offer. It’s hard to pick and choose what to do when you only have a limited amount of “fun” time on your hands (one of the drawbacks to having a job where you work around 50 during the week) and it can be even harder to keep track of all the things that you want to do. What is an easy solution to this problem? Another list! (See, I told you I was mildly obsessed with making lists!)

Summer 2013 Bucket List

I packed my Summer 2013 Bucket List with some things I already have planned (like my trip to Las Vegas next weekend!!), things that will take a lot of dedication (running 100 miles), planning (getting people together to go see the Cards play), and I also threw in some things that are just plain fun and hope to do more than once (I’ll take as much Pineapple Whip as possible, please!)

I plan on printing this out and putting it in a picture frame on my desk so I can cross off all the fun things that I do this summer! What are some of the fun things that you’re wanting to do in the nice, warm weather?

101 In 1001

Well it’s official, I’m finally jumping on the bandwagon and making a “101 in 1001” list. Basically it is a giant to-do list (I really love them!) of things that I want to accomplish in the next 1001 days. They can be big, they can be little, they can be personal or silly. No matter what they are, I’m really excited about some of the goals that I am setting for myself!
