Wow, it’s so crazy to think that another 3 months has passed since the last 101 in 1001 check-in! I honestly thought that with this check-in that I would maybe cross off like one or two items, but I’m very happy to say that I’ve actually completed a few more items than I expected! I hope that I can continue to check more things off the list as I go!
17. Go on three girl’s trips. (2/3)
One of my best girlfriends and I have birthdays that are only 4 days apart and this year was a big one for us. We both turned the big 3-0! In order to celebrate we decided that a trip to Las Vegas would be perfect, and was it ever! This was Kayla’s first time in Sin City so we did all of the typical Vegas stuff, we gambled, went to a couple of shows (including BSB, which was perfect for these late 80’s babies!), ate some amazing food, and of course saw the Welcome to Las Vegas sign! We also did some not so typical Vegas things like The Mob Museum in Downtown Vegas and The Neon Museum. One of these days I’ll get around to blogging about this fabulous girls birthday weekend!
24. Take Dart to the beach.
For the weekend of my actual birthday, I knew that I wanted to get away from Houston, but I wanted it to be close and somewhere that Dart could actually go. Chris and I were going back and forth between Fredericksburg and Galveston, and Galveston ended up winning out because Chris had never been before. It was so much fun to see him run around the sand and get freaked out by the waves!
39. Organize our photos and music on our computer.
This is actually done! I’ve been pretty good lately about having a system of folders where we divide up our pictures by year, then month, and then break each month into a category for pictures. It’s helped me so much when it comes to making our family yearbooks!
56. Get up to date on our family yearbooks.
I’ve very happy to say that I’ve made a conscious effort to get these done this year! I finally completed 2014 and started on 2015. I told you that I’m really far behind! I hope to be done with 2015 before June 30th so I can start and complete 2016!
57. Get up to date on our vacation photobooks.
This goes hand in hand with our family yearbooks, but I’ve found that I can’t really create our family yearbooks until after I’ve created our vacation photobooks because I end up adding too many pictures of our vacations into our yearbooks. First world problems I know. Anyways, I’ve found that creating the vacation books first is really helpful, and I’ve very happy to say that since our 2014 Family Yearbook is done, and our Northern California trip books are also completed! I’m hoping to get our Hawaii books done soon so that it won’t take forever to finish our 2015 Yearbook!
59. Get family of three pictures taken (me, Chris, and Dart).
When we found out that Dart had cancer, family pictures of the three of us became even more important to me. Luckily a friend from work’s wife has a photography business called Lindsey Marie Family Photography and she took some beautiful pictures of the three of us back in March. I seriously love these pictures so much, and I know that I’ll treasure them forever! I just need to actually get them printed off one of these days!
61. Read 100 books. (84/100)
I’ve definitely been in the middle of a reading slump lately, but I’m hoping that will all turn around for me soon! Since this 101 in 1001 challenge has started I’ve read 7 books in 2015 and 56 books in 2016 and 21 books in 2017 for a grand total of 84 books. I’m hoping that I’ll get even more reading done on our long flight to Europe!
67. Finish watching the whole series of Friends. (Season 8)
Since all of our shows have been back on we really haven’t had a chance to watch that many episodes of Friends, but Chris has already said that it’s his goal that we finish it this summer. I’m definitely ok with that and can’t wait to finish it up!
Health, Fitness & Beauty- (3/10)
Health, Fitness & Beauty- (4/10)
And there you have it! I’m about half way done with my challenge so far, and while I don’t think that I’ll be able to complete everything, I’m pleasantly surprised with how well I’m doing so far! Hopefully I’ll have even more checked off next time around!
