300 days

Yesterday marked 300 days... so I wasn't as productive as I had hoped during my last 100 days, but I did start working again- two weeks earlier than expected!

Tasks completed since last time:
11. Visit Jess in Asheville.
19. Have a yard sale.
50. Go to a parade.
63. Go to UNC's homecoming.
66. Hike to the top of a mountain.
71. Pick my own pumpkin and carve it.
84. Visit NYC for the first time.
99. Do a zipline course.

22.8 % complete with 10 goals in progress.

I'm not really sure what I want to do in the next 100 days. I'll finish working this job, then figure out what to do next!

Working on #7, happy belated birthday to my bestie!
Also, JH and I completed #66 (how appropriate) and climbed the Devil's Marbleyard on Saturday. All the way to the top. I say climbed, not hiked, because it was boulders the entire way up. Here is the view from halfway up:
And the view that made climbing that high totally worth it:

Let them eat cake!

So I got a little fancy for mom's birthday cake last week- check out this ish.

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

Double your fun!

Two more tasks completed this weekend! As far as #50, I smashed it out of the park; not only did I go to a parade, I was in a parade, and I rode in a humvee. VT's homecoming was this past weekend and JH had to drive the humvee for the cadet on homecoming court (who won homecoming king!!).

The next day, we went to Sinkland Farms for a "corn maze" and hayride. I was not particularly impressed, seeing how the corn maze was not actually a maze, but more of a wander-in-and-out-the-same-exit. What good is a maze if you have no goal?! We had a fabulous time nudging pumpkins down the hill in the pumpkin patch though. We carved pumpkins later that evening, wielding our baby knives to create a ghost, a headless horsemen, and a graveyard (carved by Steven and Rebekah). #71 gets a nice big check! Or italicized, in this case.

The Big Apple #84

This time last weekend, I was living it up at Wicked Willy's in the heart of Manhattan. Now, I'm planning what cupcakes to make my little brother for Halloween and trying to figure out how to make his costume. I'm a superb big sister, I know, but I think I'd prefer a night on the town. The best part of my trip to NYC- going to Top of the Rock. BK, Katie and I went after sunset and it was breathtaking to see all the lights in every direction. The dark area in the middle is Central Park; BK and I managed to entirely turned around in The Ramble on Friday.

Unrelated, but still fun, I built a table for JH's new apartment out of an old wooden window! Also, since I never posted for finishing a week of paleo, it goes without saying that I was tempted by cake 5 days into the attempt. Just have to try again!

Cedar Point

#87 can be checked off again- JH and I went to Ohio with 2 other fabulous couples this weekend. We spent Thursday and Friday exploring Kelley's Island, then raged for 2 days at Cedar Point. My top three rides: Top Thrill Dragster, shooting you from 0 to 120 mph in 4 seconds; Millennium Force, the #1 steel coaster in the world; and the Maverick, which drops you at a 95 degree angle. So fun!

Asheville- 11 and 99 complete!

I spent the past few days in Asheville and Highlands, visiting Jess and my little brother. Jess and I did a zipline course at Navitat on Tuesday and zipped over the valley between two mountains! Wednesday we drove up the Blue Ridge Parkway to Crabtree Falls. One of my favorite parts of Asheville is the food; there are so many specialty restaurants and everything is delicious and usually organic. We ate at Twisted Crepe, Tupelo Honey, Green Sage and City Bakery and I would recommend any of them if you're in the area, especially Twisted Crepe!

One of the nights I made the harrowing drive to Highlands, where my little brother is studying at the biological station for the semester. We went up to Sunset Rock that night, and in the morning, he woke me up at 7:30AM to go jump in a waterfall before he had to go to class. So cold!

Sunday, September 11, 2011


Yesterday, I completed #19! The News & Record held their annual Newspapers In Education yard sale, and for a $30 donation, I set up in 2 of their parking spaces along with about 100 other people. I think it was a fair trade for the advertising and the space since my house is quite a ways off the road and would have been difficult for a yard sale. My little cousins brought their old toys and clothes too, and went home with a nice bundle of cash. JH and I will hopefully be using our profits to help fund our Cedar Point trip at the end of the month. Success!

I started eating paleo yesterday, and it has been tough. Breakfast consists of spinach omelets, and my other meals have ranged from butternut squash soup to orange shrimp. I've been tracking everything I eat on fitday, and I am shocked by the number of carbs in fruit, fruit juice and honey. There is nothing good left to eat!!! I tried making paleo apple muffins, but the taste of almond flour is so heavy; needless to say, they were not satisfying. Tomorrow brings the promise of sauteed kale, can't wait.

200 days

98. Learn to apply make-up, including liquid eyeliner.

16.8% complete, with 10 goals in progress.

It looks ambitious, but I don't work full time again until October, so I'm diving in headfirst!

Lake Michigan: unsalted.

Vacation is over, successfully completing #94. JH survived 2 1/2 weeks with my family, and I daresay he enjoyed it. After hiking the Cottonwood Trail to Sleeping Bear Dunes. Somebody needs a haircut.

Sunset over the dunes and the Manitou Islands.

Thrill Capital of the Southeast!!!!!

After my last day at Dr. Cathey's, Ashley and I decided to tear it up at Carowinds, completing #87. It was a rainy, gray day, but better for us- incredibly short lines and bearable temperatures. Here we are in front of The Duck, with the Intimidator behind us.We rode the Intimidator three times, and it was FABULOUS.

Monday, August 1, 2011

Vacation Time

I've accomplished quite a bit in the last month, but seeing as I didn't bring my USB cable up north, pictures and updates will have to wait. Michigan, as usual, is gorgeous. More importantly, it's an average of 15 degrees cooler than it is back home. We leave Sunday- expect a slew of posts afterwards!

Mckenzie's Mill. #68 complete.

Last weekend, Big Sis was in town. Friday night, we went to a burlesque show- major bust! The transvestite who spent most of his/her time strutting around in heels managed to twist it's ankle and required a trip to the hospital. Saturday night our entertainment choice was much more successful. One of her friends is in the band McKenzie's Mill, and they were playing at The Stumblin' Pig in Mebane. The boys put on a fabulous show- they were actually better live than on their CD... I wonder if they do weddings...

Tuesday, June 7, 2011


In preparation for the wedding marathon weekend, I made JH a bowtie! I found a pattern and directions on Greg's Blog, but I used cotton instead of silk. I couldn't find any patterns I liked with silk and have since looked online for better silk, but alas, a fruitless search. The only other person wearing a bowtie at the wedding was an adorable two year old whose mother wants me to make some for him! Idea for an etsy shop...? Total possibility.

Hummin' Bird

JH, Mom and I completed #59 on Friday when we stopped in for a tour at the Red Oak Brewery. The tour lasted about an hour, and afterwards, they let you sample all of their beers- as much as you'd like to sample. Needless to say, the tour was definitely worth $5 and we came home with some new beer glasses. My favorite of the brews was the Hummin'Bird, which was much lighter than the traditional Red Oak and the Battlefield Bock.

I also spent some time at Balance Day Spa, where they attempted to give me some basic make-up application instruction. I think I absorbed most of it, and my proudest achievement has been putting on purple liquid eyeliner flawlessly.

#53 done

Saturday night, I threw a bachelorette party for Tiffany! We had a spa day, played in the hot tub and ate cupcakes all night, so I consider it a success.

A picture of all the fabulous girls before we went out to dinner, taken by my new camera :)

2. Get Caroline's air conditioning fixed.

My nifty calculator tells me that I am approximately 5.9% complete. However, I've started a few other goals, so I think I'm on track for the amount of time that's passed.

Goals I'd realistically like to complete in the next 100 days:
3. Read then organize all my dental hygiene magazines and information.
6. Back up my computer.
27. Finish level 1 of Rosetta Stone Spanish.

#81 complete!

I bought a new camera! A Nikon D3100, and it takes fabulous pictures. So from now on, all my posts should be accompanied by a stunningly crisp and brilliant photo.

Fashionista! Completed #25

I successfully made my own dress! I won't say that it was the best-fitting dress, or the dress with the straightest hems, but it was totally wearable.

The ribbon at the waist was supposed to cover the crooked seam between the bodice and skirt, but alas!- it was so crooked that even the ribbon couldn't hide it. I think it turned out well for my first try though.

I've also been busy making birthday cards, but they have all been hand delivered, so this post is quite late.

So, in chronological order...Happy birthday to Hailey!

Happy birthday to Dahlia!
...and happy birthday to Gail!

I'm a rugged maniac.

I've been diligently working on my list, but not diligently updating my blog. Two more completed! Saturday, I ran in the Rugged Maniac 5k with Whitney and Brian, completing #16. Here is an after picture:
After two washings, my shirt is still that color, but totally worth it. I have also somehow managed to complete #49 (starting work has probably helped this) and have successfully gotten out of bed before 9AM 31 days in a row. Going to bed before midnight is still a challenge on the weekends though.

Happy early Earth Day! Working on #72...

This weekend, a few of the old Girl Scouts did the Great American Clean-up and picked up 5 bags of trash and 2 of recyclables! One of the more interesting finds was a pile of coins where it looked like someone had busted their piggy bank open.

Also, I've been looking over my list to get some things done and realized that to read 250 books, I would have to read 1 every 4 days. The non-fiction books are taking me longer to read, mostly because I have to re-read a lot of passages to make sure I'm not missing anything. I'm reading The Omnivore's Dilemma right now, and it's really changing my whole view of eating and 'organic'. I'm nearly finished with it, and the next non-fiction on my list is about the extravagance in spending for American weddings. A subject that is rather near to my heart, but a viewpoint I'm not used to seeing. I'm very excited to approach wedding design from a new angle and maybe learn a few things I can use in the future.

Birthday wishes

Happy birthday to the fabulous and wonderful Brecken!

On the inside it says "That is how you say happy birthday in Breckosaurus!"

Monday, March 7, 2011

Bring it on, summer. I'm ready for you now.

I am happy to report that Caroline is completely healthy for the first time since the fiasco in California! I took her in to have her air conditioning fixed last week, and she's now back at home, pleased as punch to be a fully working vehicle.

#67 complete! and signed up for #16

I finally figured out a way to keep all my jewelry organized and in one place!

It's a piece of a shelf left over from one of the jobs my dad did, I just knocked out 2 slats and put in screen and screwed in cup hooks down the rest of it. So much more fabulous than the jumble that was on my dresser.

Whit and her boy are doing a run called the Rugged Maniac 5k and invited me to join them! It's a 5k course on a motocross track with obstacles like barbed wire to crawl under, walls to scramble over and mud pits to slosh through. So psyched! The Greensboro one is April 9th if anyone would like to join us...

Buzz Buzz

I normally don't read much non-fiction outside of wedding and design blogs, but my little brother, who is currently in a honey bee seminar, pretty much demanded that I read Fruitless Fall: The Collapse of the Honey Bee and the Coming Agricultural Crisis by Rowan Jacobsen. I am also quite oblivious of the news, so the collapse of honey bee hives has escaped my notice; nearly everything concerning honey bees has escaped my notice. Jacobsen does a fabulous job of providing basic facts about honey bees so that you understand why they are so important to agriculture and the way we live. Did you know that approximately 82% of the world's almond production takes place in California and that many beekeepers send their bees to pollinate all those trees? The honey bees are crucial to pollinating the millions of acres of trees and maintaining the production levels. However, sending hives from across the country to one central meeting place is similar to sending your child to daycare; more often than not, they come home with germs and end up sick. Jacobsen explores the plights of the honey bee, from varroa mites and pesticides to Colony Collapse Disorder, and the future effect on how we are able to obtain food.

I've been trying to convince my mom to set up a hive this spring, but she hasn't given in so far. After reading Fruitless Fall, I'm pretty sure I'll only be eating organic, local honey from now on.

If you want to know more, the honey bee seminar class has their own blog: Propolis Metropolis.

3 minutes into the UNC-Duke game and Duke has only now scored their first points. To honor the evening, I'm posting my progress on #83, the Carolina blanket!

Happy Birthday KT!

So it is my favorite other KT in the whole wide world's birthday, and this is the birthday card I made for her! ...Which means 1 down, 19 to go to finish #7!

Need need need so badly

Nothing spectacular in the way of 101 in 1001 recently, but I found something more exciting out there in the blog-world from a link posted over on Snippet & Ink. Many of you may not know this, but I have been longingly coveting a mini pig for quite some time now. I've done the research, picked out a few names; however, a mini pig is just not in the budget. Isn't it just the MOST ADORABLE thing you've ever seen? Mini pig has just moved up to the top of my 'Things To Save For' list.

I've read 2 books so far- Kitchen Chinese and The Apothecary's Daughter. I enjoyed both- Kitchen Chinese made me think of my best friend, who is currently living in China and missing cheese as much as the girl in the book.

I also tried a new restaurant Friday night- Grill 584 in Burlington. The salmon was super moist and delicious, and the salad bar was spectacular. Dinner was followed by Hip Pocket at The Fat Frogg. This was the first time I've seen them, but they were lively and fun, and I'll definitely see them again.

Sunday, January 2, 2011
