It’s the middle of August, which means that it’s time for my third check in for my 101 in 1001 with Macy from To Travel and Beyond! Overall, the past few months have been kind of slow for me, as far as checking things off my 101 in 1001 list. Hopefully I’ll check some more things off in the coming months, but here is my progress over the past three months, and my overall progress since November 16th of last year!
2. Visit 10 cities that I’ve never been to before. (2/10)
At the last check-in, I had only visited one city that I’d never been to before, and since then I’ve only visited one other city that I’ve never been to before, and that’s Portland. I’m right in the middle of recapping our trip to Portland, and if you’ve never been, I can’t recommend a trip there enough!
10. Visit a brewery in another city.
Chris and I had an anniversary trip to Denver, Colorado, and one of the things that Chris wanted to do while we were there was to visit The Great Divide Brewing Company, which we did. Eventually I’ll get around to recapping our trip to Denver, I promise!
14. Visit the Pacific Northwest.
I managed to check this off when we visited Portland earlier this year. The Pacific Northwest was so incredibly breathtaking, and I don’t know why it took me so long to make it up there!
18. Go on a spontaneous weekend trip.
Like I stated in my last weekending post, things didn’t work out exactly how we’d planned, so instead of going to Napa, we made some plans and went on a spontaneous weekend trip to Waco. I know, when I say that I “made plans” that doesn’t exactly scream spontaneous, but that’s pretty spontaneous to me, whose Type A personality likes to have every single detail planned out!
20. Go on a trip once a month for a year. (8/12)
Still going strong with this goal! We’ve managed to go on a trip once a month since December of last year, and if everything goes according to plan, we’ll meet this goal by November! I’m so excited!
23. Take a road trip.
I guess that technically this could have been met anytime we drive anywhere in Texas since most places are pretty far from each other, but I’m counting our trip to Magnolia Market as our road trip.
42. Organize the pantry and keep it organized.
Not much happened on the home front over the past three months, except for me cleaning out the pantry right before Chris’s birthday party. I knew that everybody was going to be throwing stuff away in there during the party, so I spent a few hours throwing stuff away and cleaning it out. Thank goodness that we’ve been able to keep it organized still!
61. Read 100 books. (43/100)
Reading has been going pretty well for me so far this year, and I think that the main reason for that is because of the book clubs that I’ve joined and because of the reading challenges I’ve participated in as well. Since my 101 in 1001 has started, I’ve read 7 books in 2015 and 36 books in 2016.
97. Update old blog posts with better pictures and captions.
The weekend before last, I had quite a bit of time during the weekend, and I used that time to update my old blog posts about our trip to Napa. Not only did I update captions, but I also added some Pinterest graphics and added them to Pinterest. Even though I’m sure that I’ll update some more posts going forward, I’m going to consider this item done!
100. Develop my social media presence more.
I feel like my Instagram game has really stepped up a lot, and I’m hoping that I’ll hit 1,000 followers by the end of the year. I have also joined quite a few Facebook groups that help with Social Media promotion and engagement, and I feel like my Facebook and Pinterest game have shown some positive growth from that as well. Hopefully my social media presence will continue to grow!

Health, Fitness & Beauty- (4/10)
Overall, I don’t feel like I really accomplished that much over the past three months, but I feel like I have a lot coming up over the next few months, so hopefully I’ll have some more positive results next time around.
