When I said lots has been going on in my last post I really wasn’t kidding. Fast forward two months and there has been a new thing crossed off my 101 in 1,001 list, a decision on our honeymoon, an accident, engagement pictures, a new car, applying for a new job, a trip to South Dakota, a trip to Arizona, an offer for that new job, and a crazy two weeks finishing up at the old job. I’ve been writing thoughts down intermittently but haven’t gotten the chance to finish any posts – but I promise to change that.
Today we are going to head out to shop for suits for the guys – fingers crossed this place has one that is a style we like, a fit we like, AND can come in all the needed sizes for our guys. I definitely thought the suit process would be easier than this – aren’t the GIRLS supposed to be the difficult ones to dress?! That was easy peasy.
Also, this afternoon is my bridal shower! It definitely feels weird. I haven’t had the “this shit just got real” moment regarding the whole wedding yet, but I feel like I’m on the verge. I did think that I would be super anticipating my bridal shower, going out and buying a new dress especially for the occasion and just basking in the bridal glow and joy – that hasn’t really happened, but I also think the stress of changing jobs (spoiler: the new job is mine) could be affecting that. As well, I always imagined my bridal shower would be on a bright and sunny day, but today’s not only going to be rainy, but thunderstorms are forecasted for the entire afternoon. Oh well. Let’s hope this weather karma means that the wedding day will be gorgeous in exchange. :)
In short, our trip to Montana was amazing. The ranch, the ridiculously hot weather, the scenery, the family time, the cow manure –聽I enjoyed every bit of it. We were only there for 6 days, but it felt like so much longer because it felt like work was a million miles away, but at the same time being there felt like home. (Also, I got to check some things off my 101 in 1,001 list!)
We stopped to take pictures on the ridge near his Grandpa’s ranch on our way to town. Ignore my crazy collar bones and his sleepy/confused look.
But now I’m back to reality and faced with my ever increasing to-do lists (especially for the wedding!). However, I think I’m getting my motivation mojo back and am ready to get
things done. (more…)
I love the idea of setting goals, but I’ll be the first to tell you I’m not the best at keeping tabs on them. No matter how soon or far away I set them for, I just lose track (and sometimes lose interest). When I heard of the 101 in 1,001 list I loved the idea. 1,001 days, or just under three years, is a great timeframe – not too far away, not too soon – and 101 goals allows you to think of goals across the gamut, from dreams you’ve had all your life, places you’ve wanted to go, and the pesky little things you’ve been meaning to get done.
Making this list was really fun and I think I even learned a few things about myself and how my priorities have changed as I’ve gone from college student to “young professional” and soon-to-be wife. If you want to do your own list, check out Day Zero Project聽for goal ideas. Once I get a little more organized I’ll try to link up with other bloggers who have taken on the 101 in 1,001 challenge. If you have a list link to it below in the comments!
