101 in 1001 – Check-in #6

Can you believe it is already time for the s i x t h #my101in1001 link-up?!  We only have these link-ups every three months but they always seem to catch me by surprise. (and the 6th should have went live on the 15th but i had it in my calendar for today…sooo SORRY!) I don’t feel like I made very much progress in the last few months, but things are ch-ch-changing! We have some big things coming up and I am re-focusing a few things. I thought about changing some of my goals to reflect those changes, but instead I am going to leave everything as is.


In only 15 months the 1001 days will be complete and I want to see where life has changed as well. Can’t wait to see how everyone else is doing on their list!

If this is your first time stopping by to read or share your own 101 in 1001 list, check out my previous posts and the original list:

#My101in1001 original list   |   first check-in, February 2016   |   second check-in, May 2016

third check-in, August 2016  | forth check-in, November 2016   |  fifth check-in, February 2017

What I have done since the last check-in:

  • Read a devotional for 30 days in a row. I did this last month and it was a huge blessing in my life. I started the devotional and then realized I wanted to also have a prayers and gratitude journal, so I combined all three and its amazing to look back on what I was praying for 4 weeks ago.
  • Start and stick to a budget. CHECK CHECK CHECK. I am so excited about this one. Read about our budget and our version of the Dave Ramsey plan in this post. 
  • Three cocktails. I shared my latest cocktail creation just this week. The jalapeño marg is a new favorite of mine. (2/3)
  • Make 3 crockpot recipes. I made this meat sauce that Megan shared and it was delicious! (1/3)
  • Read 3 business-based books. The Best Yes, Grace Not Perfection & The Magnolia Story (3/3) I loved all three of these books! What are your favorite business but entertainment books?

A big one in-progress…we have officially booked our trip for Japan! In September we will be adventuring around Japan with some friends. I can’t wait to be there!

Also, I am SO BEHIND in the Health category. Who wants to be my accountability partner for the next three months? I need to check some of these things off!

    Yay for crockpot recipes! I’m sharing some REALLY yummy ones (and maybe some of my favorite and most diverse) starting next week so stay tuned! I’m happy to team up with you on some of the health ones! I want to take a class at Beachfit called Surfset (its a class on a surfboard so it takes a lot of balance)! I’ve taken it before and loved it so if you want to drop in sometime let me know! The gym also has TRX band workouts and I’m a huge fan of TRX bands so thats an option too!!!

    You have definitely checked off a few things within the past month! I feel like I’m behind in the health category too! I’m going to get my next check-in up this Friday and we’ll see how I’ve done!

    I’m right there with you in the Health category, I really need to get on that! That’s great about the devotional goal, I also need to work harder on my Faith category.

    Good work! I missed this link-up and probably wouldn’t have much to share haha…life has been a little crazy. I thought about adjusting some of my list based on goals, but decided to leave it as is and see how it turns out in the end!
