I've been going back and updating my original post with my progress and I thought I was making really good progress on my list. BUT now that I've re-listed them out as completed, in progress, and completed I've realized just how many things I need to complete still. And with only 19 days left - eeeek!  

And with that, I'm off to de-clutter and re-organize my life. Pray for me


  1. You have done so many awesome things this summer! Even if you don't make it through the whole list (though you've still got time!) you still rocked it. Plus, it looks like you accomplished a lot of the big dreams (Vegas/Mall of America, Colour Run) and some of the to be completed ones could be for Fall, a Fall Lemonade (or apple cider) stand would be awesome!

  2. It was a BIG list, but you knocked out of a ton of them!! Good for you!!! Sneak in a family game night WITH the paradise drink and the berry sangria and you'll knock out three at once ;) Oh- and then invite me!!!

  3. This is quite an exhaustive list! Even if you haven't finished everything, you still did a lot more awesome things than I did!
