Ok, so here I am after the 1st week of the challenge. I’m pretty excited that I made some progress already:
1 Create (and maintain) a blog – which will keep updates on this bucket list among other life happenings. Clearly you are here, and I’m updating (a teensy sarcastic comment – I swear that #82 will be the toughest part of this challenge – no sarcastic comments for 24 hours – YIKES). This will definitely be an ongoing process and I plan to update this at least weekly (unless something good comes up that I can barely contain my excitement to share!). I’m glad to have started this and glad you are here to share in my journey!
16 Refinish a piece of used furniture for the spare bedroom. I found this little gem out on the side of Kings Hwy in Mt. Ephraim with a sign that said ‘free’ – I just couldn’t resist. Thankfully I have brute strength and put this dresser into my Pathfinder (I LOVE my SUV). So far I have stripped the paint down to the bare wood. I was hoping to paint it this week, but I’m sidetracked by out-of-state visitors this weekend. Hopefully I make some progress before next week (& I will devote a post just to my little thrifty find!)
22 Write a list of 10 things I’m thankful for and hang it up on my refrigerator and cubicle to remind me how lucky I am. I saw a friends post on Facebook about how people post a lot of negativity and I just had to do this. I’m a blessed gal. Read all about it here.
57 Go to Carlos Bakery – home of TLC’s Cake Boss. I have family visiting from Texas (I keep calling it “The Texas Invasion”) and this is planned for Sunday, October 24th. I want to meet the Buddy’s Mom – she is the best!
65 Donate Blood. We had a blood drive at work on Wednesday, 10/13/10. I have not donated in 10+ years, so I felt good about it. Looking forward to my next donation (Note: if you are interested to donate or volunteer for the American Red Cross, click here)
Hope you have a fantastic week!
