Off The List- Numbers 32, 35, and 75

I have to say that this week was fairly productive when I take the 101 List into account. I was able to knock three more things off of my list. I don't think that's too bad for a person who made the list about a week ago.

Let me just tell you now that it is wedding central at mine and Colby's house right now. The back bedroom is no longer a bedroom. It looks like a big, old junk pile. I'm so embarrassed by it right now. Not too long ago I had it all cleaned up. Now....we're back to the same old thing.

Don't believe me? Take a look at this....

Because blogs are about keeping it real, I figured I would share this with you. Maybe this will make you feel better by seeing my ginourmous mess.

What's created this mess you ask?

Me. Things for the wedding. Shower gifts. Gifts we've received after showers. Me moving my stuff in.

Ok...well, you should feel much better about yourself now. My goal today is to get this mess semi-looking better. Oh mercy....


Now, on to the 101 list. 

Number 32: Donate canned goods to the food drive.

Like I posted about yesterday, we received information in our mailbox to participate in the food drive that the USPS takes part in. I thought this would be the perfect time to knock something off of my list. While I am participating in this one, I hope to participate in one more at the end of the year. I'm going to try to get my church members to collect food to donate to our local food bank as well. I think a challenge might be in order for them.

Number 35: Update my cell phone

Let me just tell you now that this was a hard decision for me. Colby and I have had so many discussions about this it's crazy. What could be so hard about updating your phone?

Colby and I have been going back and forth about whether to get a phone that has a data package. We want those phones so bad we can taste it, but money is what ultimately made our decision.

You see, we're cheap. Right now we are anyway. There are things we want much bigger than a cell phone. That's why we decided we didn't need a $200 phone bill. Instead, we opted for regular phones. I decided to just get a one year contract, so maybe next year I can get a touch screen phone with a data package. I'm crossing my fingers.

Number 75: Hang ferns on my front porch.


I've been wanting to do this for over a month now. I finally have it done. We needed some ferns for the wedding, so I opted to buy some. Then, I could keep them.

Logical, right?

The best thing was that it only cost me $30 for these babies. They are huge!

Now, if I can put some potted flowers on the table and pillows on the swing, I think I can knock something else off my list. Trust me. It's coming.

  1. You're making great progress on your list. The porch looks great. And, the guest room makes me feel better. Ha.
