101 in 1001 comes to an end.

Checking things off the list. 

Well, just over 1001 days ago I posted that list that is found on the left hand side of my blog. The goal was to complete 101 goals in 1001 days. By posting it for the world to see it was going to make me a more accountable.

How did things shake out?

I completed 66 of my 101 goals. Some of my most memorable?

Falling in love. Way back in 2009 love, marriage, etc. was not in the picture. But now as I write this the Boy and I are under 50 days until our wedding. I couldn't ask for a better partner or best friend.

Despite K-State losing, I had a blast attending my first K-State away game in Lincoln, Nebraska. Good thing I went because with UNL leaving the Big 12 there definitely won't be another reason to see that stadium. p.s. K-State tailgating still wins.

Getting to travel to Australia had been a dream of mine for a long time. The trip that I took in 2012 was amazing. I wouldn't trade the friendships I made or the experiences I had for anything. I can't wait to go back one day.

Sleeping in a tent was awesome. The Boy completely surprised me by setting up a tent by our cornfield.

Attending church 12 times in 12 months was a big personal accomplishment for me. With my travel schedule things can get a little hectic, but I loved the church I found when I was living in Missouri. I haven't gotten as involved since I moved to Iowa, but hope to change that soon.

I also partially completely 11 of the goals. I wish I would have made the push to finish that last little bit of these goals (especially getting that last MAC make-over). However, I am not giving up on these yet. I am so close to reaching one of my financial goals that I'm going to keep on pushing through.

Now for the things that I just wasn't very good at.

Sending out birthday cards. I am the worst person ever at buying cards (birthday, Valentine's, Easter, etc) and not sending them out. Ask any of my family or the Boy. It is not one of my strengthens!

I tried so many times to read USA Today online everyday for a week. I really enjoying reading the paper (even though I do it on my iPhone). I'm going to have to work on this.

I wasn't super successful on my fitness or athletic goals. Oops.

And scrapbooking wasn't so successful. I love looking through my junior college scrapbook, I need to get the others done.

I am glad that I inspired so many of you to start your own lists. I'll be posting my new list soon, and I one of my goals is that the Boy and I will do a list together. Here is another great 1001 days. I hope you are reaching lots of your own goals.


  1. Great job finishing over half your goals! Can't wait to see your new list!

  2. 66/101 sounds like success to me! On the scrapbooking, have you tried to do digital scrapbooks? I've done my last couple of years on Shutterfly and absolutely love it!
