My 101 in 1001 Link-Up # 9

WOW! I can’t believe how close to the end of the 1001 days we are! There are a lot of things on my list that I know I won’t be able to achieve, mainly because being pregnant and then having an infant won’t allow for doing things like skydiving or swimming with sharks. I’m not going to change or adjust anything though, I am really loving seeing the progress in each category and taking a look at how much my life has changed.


I didn’t think I had made much progress since the last few check-ins, but it looks like I actually have done some damage in a few categories. I can’t wait to see what others have accomplished!


8 glasses of water per day for a month. It may not be exactly 30 days but during the last 6 months of my pregnancy I have been drinking water NONSTOP. I aim for 100 ounces a day and almost always achieve it. Granted it adds to my long walks to the bathroom, but i’m feeling good!

Start a daily skincare routine. I didn’t really know what this would mean when I added it to my list, and what I am doing isn’t really anything special, but it’s something. My face has been very dry since getting pregnant, so I make sure to moisturize as soon as I get up, and clean my face really well at the end of the day. For now this is working for me!

Instagram Story 3 times in one week, 3 different times. I am on the Enchanting Events instagram often! I feel bad that I have somewhat abandoned my personal account, but sitting on the sofa watching Netflix every night isn’t really anything to share with the world. Maybe our adventures will continue soon.


Coordinate 15 weddings DONE. Plus some! We have been involved with over 20 weddings and have loved every minute. I can’t believe we get to do this in real life. We’re 1 wedding away from our goal for 2018 and I’m praying we reach it before the end of the month. I’ll probably buy a bottle of champagne to save for after Olivia arrives.

Newly In Progress:

Read the entire bible. I started this on January 1st and am making good progress! I read a devotional along with the given books or chapters for that day. I only wish I would have started this last year!

    I felt the same way about my last, there’s a lot that’s not going to get done because of having babies and the time that I was pregnant. It would be fun to make another list though and see how things have changed since no your original list!

    • Macy Volpe

      I have been thinking about making another list once this 1001 days is over. It really would be cool to compare the two, but also see where life takes me again in those 1001 days!

    I’ll be adding my link on Thursday :) I’m the same though, I didn’t accomplish much these last few months and don’t think I’ll accomplish much before this is all over. I’m ok with it though, because like you, my life has changed quite a bit since I wrote the list!

    • Macy Volpe

      Even though we didn’t reach all of the goals that we planned on a few years ago, I think it’s a great lesson in setting expectations for ourselves. Life changes so fast and we don’t realize that often enough.

    YAY! SO HAPPY to type in your URL and find this post! You have accomplished so much and hi, growing a baby should count for like 592304934. I’m so so proud of you for the weddings you’ve coordinated so far and are to come. You are killing it and I’m so proud of you for chasing your dreams! xoxo

    • Macy Volpe

      I love you, lady!! I’m surprised that I am totally happy with not accomplishing more so far, things have changed so much over the last 2 years!

  • Lauren

    You’ve accomplished so much!!! I wish that I hadn’t lost my 101 in 1001 list, but I’m so happy to follow yours!

    • Macy Volpe

      I’m really surprised by how much I have been able to check off!! At least you could have a new one with Alice in tow <3

  • Jasmine @makingrestorations
