My 101 in 1001 Link-up # 7

We’re just ONE YEAR away from the end of the 101 in 1001 link-up! Time has been moving so quickly that I totally forgot this link-up was already coming up. While this should have happened last week, I’m excited to share the progress that has been made over the last few months since the last link-up in May.


I went through the list with Dave a few weeks ago and a plan is in place to really hoping to improve in the health category. What am I doing?! Time to stop being lazy and kick it into high gear! 101_in_101_link_up_7

  • Take a trip for our second anniversary. DONE! We went to Alexandria, Virginia for a weekend and had so much fun! I’m still trying to get around to that recap.
  • Read 3 devotionals. I finished another one and I LOVED it! It spoke to my heart in so many ways and I really hope to find another one like it. (2/3)


  • Bike in 3 cities. DONE! I rounded out this goal by biking to breakfast in Alexandria.
  • Clear out makeup and invest in good products. I am continuously doing this and have really enjoyed learning more about certain products. Any suggestions for a BB cream?
  • Grow something that I can eat/use while cooking. Dave really nailed this one, but we have basil, oregano, mint and rosemary growing right now and use them almost daily. I LOVE it! Next year we’re getting cilantro for sure!


  • Coordinate 15 weddings. We are up to 10 right now and should achieve this goal by the end of the year! woohoo!
  • Donate to 3 charities. When we started our budget we made sure to include a charity donation monthly. We have achieved this for two months so far and have one left to reach this goal, though we plan to continue with it forever.


  • Attend a wedding industry conference. DONE! I attended the AKP Retreat at the beginning of this month and it was a great experience.

I have debated deleting the “blog” section of this list, but I am going to leave it since there is only a year left. My heart just isn’t in the same place as it was when it comes to blogging and investing as much time as it would take for the remaining three things doesn’t seem worth it anymore. We shall see though!


Is it crazy that I am already counting down to the next link-up in November? I hope you’ll join us!

Link-up with us below to share your August recap!

    Girl! You are crushing this list! I feel you in the blog department- it’s just not the same as it once was and maybe that’s because we are growing up and putting time and energy into other things in our lives that we want to see grow and thrive. You do you and don’t give in to the pressure. xo

      I felt like I had nothing done until I started going through the list! That is so true- blogging has just changed for me. There are so many other things that I have been putting time and effort into. I think once it’s time for a new list blogging will likely be off of it. But who knows, maybe the urge will come back at some point? It’s weird to love something SO MUCH and then only like it slightly. love you!

    I miss seeing your posts all the time, but I’m so glad you’re following your heart and doing the things that make you happy! There’s no time to do things that your heart isn’t in.

    I’ll have my update up by the end of the week and link up then! 😀

      I really miss writing and reading! I’m hoping maybe it’s just a busy summer and once things slow done I will be around more often.

      Excited to see what you have accomplished! <3

    I still can’t believe that there’s only a year left! You’ve been doing such a great job with your list, and I totally feel the same way that you do about maybe not being able to meet some of the goals that I had because I’m just not in the same place that I was when I made this list.

      As I have been thinking about it, I feel like the list originally made compared to life now is actually pretty cool. It’s great to see how you have changed and how which “things” that were important 2 years ago aren’t as important now. I can’t believe there are less than 365 days left though!! It seemed like forever when this all started.

    Wow I can’t believe there is only a year left! It’s amazing to see how things evolve over time and not accomplishing some things because of that is okay!
