101 in 1,001 Days Update

Over 2 months ago, I posted my "101 in 1,001 Days" list and I've been hard at work achieving my goals! (How corny.) It's been fun to peruse the list and find specific goals I think I can achieve this month and find goals I can set about achieving in the next few months.

To date, I've completed 6 goals on my list and I thought I should give a little recap on them.

#60 Buy a designer purse.

I'm not quite sure if everyone else would agree that Vera Bradley would qualify as a designer purse, as compared to Coach or Prada. But there's only one place to buy these purses in my town and I have to buy them online to get a good sale. And since I could never see myself buying a $300+ purse, I'm making Vera Bradley designer. I bought a big tote to take to class, a laptop case, and a regular everyday purse to take everywhere else. And I want to buy more. Wallets, big totes, small purses, planners, notepads, everything!

#63 Try a spinning class
I went last Thursday to a spinning class. My mom has a few friends with gym memberships and we were able to score some visitor's passes for a week from them. So we went to this spinning class on our first day of using the passes. I've only done spinning once, in 2007, and it was intense but fun. I loved it. And I loved this workout. It just about killed me. I swear, five minutes into the class, I thought my heart was going to beat out of my chest and I was going to collapse on the floor but I held on. I loved the challenge of it. And I want to go again, and again, and again, and again. Alas, this gym is way over my budget so I can't go there.

#71 Get 20 comments on a blog post.
Here's the funny thing: I actually received over 20 comments on my "101 in 1,001 Days" list. And surprisingly, I've received over 20 comments on a LOT of blog posts now. I always get this fuzzy feeling in the pit of my stomach whenever I get an e-mail about a comment. I love them. I'm just shocked people like how I write, think I'm moderately interesting, and leave comments! So thanks, guys. Y'all seriously rock my world.

#72 Start a monthly feature of writing letters to my future husband.
I started this one last Wednesday and I think it turned out pretty good. I'm thinking of writing some more personal letters that I probably won't post. (I would put them on private or password-protected but alas, I'm using Blogger. And Blogger doesn't seem to think there's a need for it. Which there is. Which is why I'm switching to Wordpress when I buy my own domain name. Sigh. But I digress.) But it was really exciting to write and I can't wait to write more!

#83 Go to a group fitness class with my mom.
Since I went to the spinning class with my mom, I was able to knock out two goals in one intense workout. It was fun being in class with my mom because she works out hard. On Friday, we went back to the gym to just get a regular workout in and the woman in a monster. She puts me to shame.

#93 Say what I feel once.
Talyse, a good friend of my family, told me that I completed this goal with the letter I wrote to my father. And she's right. I said exactly what I felt, no holds barred, with that letter. And I'm sending him a second letter, much different than the first one, which will really knock this one out of the park!


  1. Congrats on meeting those goals!

  2. woohoo! You remind me, i need to update my list.


  3. Congrats on knocking out a few of your goals! Its always great to able to cross something off of your list isnt it? Provided that you dont lose your list, as I always seem to do.
