Better luck next time

Admittedly, I was a terrible blogger. However, I will be donating $46.15 to a yet-to-be-determined charity (anyone know much about Heifer International?) and trying again. I feel like I did more than 40% of my list, but this time I will focus more! The experiences I did check off my bucket list were amazing; taking an Italian class and honeymooning in Italy, playing indoor soccer and meeting some really great friends and teammates, reading non-fiction books...all things I may not have tried if I hadn't written them down and had that motivation to drive me. So I am compiling my new list, which has a little bit of a different style now that I have my other half to consider as well.

Less than 2 months left!

A few more completed- JH and I took advantage of one of his 4 day weekends (26!) to drive to Colorado and explore. We camped at Mueller State Park (12!), rode a dinner train through the Royal Gorge (91!), hiked through the Garden of the Gods and drove all the way up Pike's Peak.

There are less than 2 months left until my deadline...wonder how much I'll be donating to charity? Just glancing at the list, I feel like I've accomplished a lot, but when I add it up, there are over 40 things left! Guess it's going to be a busy few months.

32, 35, 52

Three more down! We are officially settled in our apartment in Kansas, and if anyone wants to visit, we have an extra bedroom :). We also embraced our new home and went to the Kansas State Rodeo, held right on the KState campus. Now I want to rope a goat, an event of which I was unaware.

Last but not least, I took a Live and Learn class at GTCC- italian! It was very basic but a good basis for the week of travel in Italy- we leave in less than a week!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! This year I will finish my 1001 days, wish me luck!

This next month will be spent cleaning, packing, unpacking, more cleaning and saying goodbyes. It's hard to believe that in 30 days I will be living in Kansas, but I'm excited because it means JH will be home soon. There are so many things I planned to do before I left, and I'm going to try to fit in as many as possible.

So basically, I'm an awful blogger. But today, I signed a lease for JH and I in Kansas!

As 2012 wraps up, I am ecstatic to announce that I finished all my Christmas shopping before the first of this month! Huge check beside #95. Now I can concentrate on packing and moving and refinishing all the furniture I've accumulated while JH has been gone.

We also completed #47 and bought Apple stock right before the iPhone5 was released. Dun dun dun... it has steadily lost worth since then. Guess we'll just hold on to it and hope for the best!

Completed #85! I played in 2 different indoor soccer leagues at the Sportsplex this winter. We came in 2nd in one league, and 2nd to last in the other, but we had a good time. The spring season started this week!

So I don't get involved in politics too often, but I really dislike the idea of my Pinterest being censored.
