Update II: 101 in 1001

It’s been a while since I revisited my 101 in 1001 list – 547 days to be exact. Seeing Jessica of Bows & Sequins post about starting her own list, I was motivated to check up on mine. I quickly realized I have a lot to accomplish between now and April 28th – a deadline extension appears to be in my near future.

Since my last progress report, I’ve only marked 13 things off. To name a few…

I went wine tasting in Sonoma (Napa was on the list, but it’s wine country either way). Instead of Helen, I Oktoberfest’d in Berlin (even better, right!?). I visited 4 new cities – San Francisco, Asheville, Berlin and Copenhagen. I earned a promotion at work and started a retirement fund (future me is happy, current me would rather have the extra spending money). I got a new (to-me) car and I don’t know how I ever drove without a backup camera. I voted in an election and even wrote a letter to my future daughter the same night (which I need to finish…). I managed to exceed my goal of 40 new restaurants (no surprise here) and made a dent in “concerts-with-dad”. I even learned how to sew – er, more like embroider.

I still have a lot left to do in the next 165 days.

I’m hoping to check off a few more things over Thanksgiving (ie: recipe compiling, learning to drive a stick, etc.). Who knows, maybe I’ll hit the lottery between now and April so I can squeeze in a trip to Italy and South Africa!

I’ll share another update first of the year. In the meantime, what have you marked off your list?
