Making a List, Checking (Things Off) It Twice

Since it is now December and 2013 is almost over (excuse me while I freak out for a second about how fast this year flew by), I wanted to sit down and reevaluate my goal list of 101 things that I'd like to accomplish in 1,001 days.

I've crossed a few more things off my list, and I want to make sure this little journey gets documented along the way! Here's what I've been up to lately:

3. Host a dinner party. CHECK!

I'm assuming having 11 people over for Thanksgiving counts as a dinner party, right? I, however, admit that I didn't cook the entire meal, but I did cook to turkey, so that counts for something.

19. Stay in bed all day and watch an entire TV season.

Sometimes you just need a lazy day to yourself. I've gotten mindlessly sucked in to Gossip Girl on Netflix, and it's just that it's so bad, it's good. And also, can I be Blake Lively? Please and thank you.

28. Visit 3 new states.

I crossed off New Jersey while I was up north visiting my friend in Philly (still working on that trip recap, I promise). I can't say I'm dying to go back anytime soon; the roads are really strange and confusing up there, at least in the twon where I was staying (no left turns, what the heck?!).

68. Start a collection.

I've always had a love for coffee mugs, and when Starbucks introduced their "You Are Here" collection, I knew I had to pick up a mug from every city I traveled to this year.
My Los Angeles mug is sitting on my desk at work..
Now can someone just tell me how I can display all these new pretties?

80. Get a blowout at a dry bar.

Happening this weekend before my office Christmas party. Having someone straigthen my curly hair for me while I sip champagne sounds utterly fantastic.

85. Adopt a child from the Angel Tree at Christmas.

We do this every year at work, and this year I adopted a 9 year-old girl, Vanessa. I'm hoping she's going to like the hot pink sneakers I bought her (all girls like pink at that age, right?)!


In other news, follow along with me today as I hold the Blog Baton on Instagram! I loved this idea when Mason introduced it, and now my day is finally here! I'll try not to bore you with too many pictures of my accounting day job; I promise accountants can be fun people, too!

Have a happy Wednesday!

Awesome on knocking so many things off of the list! I've looked into collecting those Starbucks mugs as well, we have so many fun mugs and they'd be great in our collection.

I've seen some cute coffee bar ideas for the kitchen/dining area where you could have a shelf and stack them up on top for people to grab.
