I haven’t been around in a while. The last couple of months have been jammed packed and I haven’t thought much about writing. I am going to try to resolve this.
Below are some of the 101 in 1001 tasks that have kept me busy. More to come soon…
21. Go one week without television.
Every month my husband and I try to complete a challenge. November we decided to give up television for a month. Now if you know the two of us, you know this was quite a challenge. We love watching movies and enjoy our time in front of the boob tube. However, after a month without, we realized that we have so many other wonderful things that we want to do. The television just doesn’t have any sort of pull for us anymore and we have actually cut down watching dramatically.
26. Buy a fire safe
This isn’t one of the most exciting 101’s, but it is one that I have wanted to do for a while. We have a lot of paperwork that needs safe keeping and our filing cabinets were not doing the job. In comes the fire safe. Our paperwork is now safe.
49. Finish five DIY projects (1/5)
Below is a picture of a wreath that I made in December. I know the picture is of horrible quality, but it was all I could do at the time. I have wanted to do a wreath like this for some time, but always put in on the back burner. Since I had plenty of time in November (while not watching television), I decided to give it a try. I love the outcome and can’t wait to try it in other colors. Want to try one yourself? See a tutorial here.
63. Stop cussing for 1 week
Family and Friends know I have quite the potty mouth. I couldn’t believe I could go a week without ONE curse work. Job well done, Danielle!
66. Make our wedding album
I have pushed this project off for a year. I was always too busy or wasn’t in the mood to spend hours trying to put together the book. Again in November, I sat down and designed a book on Blurb. I am in love with it and can’t wait to surprise our families with one.
70. Send my uncle all of the photos he has lost.
My uncle was working on his computer where he stores all of his pictures and had a major malfunction. Bye, bye pictures. Lucky for him I have all of them stored elsewhere and I was able to send him what he was missing.
71. Make a gingerbread house with my husband
My husband, sister and I each received a William Sonoma No-Bake Winter Wonderland Gingerbread House Kit in the mail. So in December we gathered at our apartment, opened a bottle of wine and proceeded to make our houses with Christmas tunes humming in the background. Who knew that three adults could have so much fun making Gingerbread Houses!
