101 in 1,001 Update

Happy Monday! It's been a long while since I've shared an update of my 101 in 1,001 list. For those who are new to this concept, it's a list of 101 things you want to accomplish in 1,001 days - a goal set created my Mackenzie Horan. This is the second one I've created (the first one was a flop that I never committed to), and I've been trying to be more conscious about these goals!

Before I get down to the items I've crossed off of this list, I revisited my very first 101 in 1,001, which I let drop off and never pursued. But one item was on there that I didn't put on this list and it was this: 17. Start and own a boutique. I created that list in 2013, fresh out of college, but even then, it was something I wanted to do. 4 and a half years later, it's crazy to me that it is truly a dream come true and a goal that has come to fruition!

Here are a few things that have been crossed off the list as of late!

20. Get married - We said "I do" on August 5th, 2017! Can't wait to share more details on the blog. 

40. Reach 20k followers on Instagram - Instagram is an interesting beast sometimes, so there are days I'm surprised that I surpassed 20 thousand followers as engagement can be hit or miss. But I am certainly glad that I have. 

73. Go back to Charleston, but this time with Stephen - We went to Charleston this past June to celebrate the wedding of my friend Shelby of Pretty in the Pines!

77. Travel to a new country  -  In August, we headed to St. Lucia for our honeymoon. It was a week of fun in the sun that you can read about here.

78. Make 10 new recipes from Pinterest

99. Try 10 new restaurants in Wilmington -  something I learned about this one? We rarely try new restaurants! I feel like there are a few I've missed in the last year and a half, but we are the worst about always going to our "tried and true" choices. 
          - Fork & Cork - April 2016
          - Beer Barrio - April 2016
          - Clean Eatz - June 2016
          - Dixie Grill - August 2016
          - Johnny Luke's - September 2016
          - Pembroke's - November 2016
          - Pinpoint Restaurant - December 2016
          - Halligan's Pub - December 2016 
          - Blackfin - Summer 2017

A couple that are in progress:

79. Go to 3 concerts
  • Avett Brothers -- Azalea Festival (April 2016)
  • Tim McGraw & Faith Hill - October 2017 - this concert was so good! My best friend Emma and I took a trip to Greensboro to see them and they were incredible!
89. Read at least 40 new books - I love to read but find that I read so much more during the summer than the rest of the year due to going to the beach and sitting by the pool. Here are a few recent reads:
  • The Magnolia Story
  • Me Before You
  • The One and Only
  • Lies and Other Acts of Love
  • Silver Girls
  • The Rumor
  • Everyone Worth Knowing
  • Pink Lies
  • Here's to Us
  • Beautiful Day
There are quite a few things to cross off the list but I have just a little under a year left to work through them! I'd love to know what's on your 101 in 1,001 list!
