Remember this post? {101 things in a 1001 days}

You can find the original post here but this is the just of it.  I followed a trend happening in 2009 that told me to do 101 things in 1001 days.  Doesn't sound to bad right?  I think the hardest part was to create the darn list. LOL

Heres the list (with things crossed off that I've already complete)

Starting today - Thursday, December 3rd 2009
Ending date - Thursday, August 30th, 2012

So since I last updated I was able to complete 9 things from my list.  After reading through the list of things some of them definitely don't make sense anymore.  I do not plan on starting a photography company anymore.  It's still a dream of mine but I think there are just too many things to work around and it's not right for me, at least at this time.  I am going to leave the things on my list because I think it'll be fun to see how many of the original I can complete but just fair warning.  I KNOW I WILL NOT COMPLETE THEM ALL!

 So I was able to complete
 9. Take Hannah to her first dentist appointment

12. Teach Hannah to ice skate <- she LOVES it
20. Have Hannah in daycare part time - she goes to preschool twice a week and has been going since July and again she LOVES it
38. Buy a new comfy computer chair
58. Donate all of my unused old clothes to the Salvation Army
59. Clean out my closet
92. Win something from the many blog contests I enter each and every day <- I have a few times now
97. Have coffee with someone I haven't seen in a while <- an old high school friend and I got together after having our kiddos a week apart.  We had a great time and have gotten together a few times since.
101. Do another boudoir photo shoot <- SO MUCH FUN!!!

 There, now I only have 64 left to do before August!
