Project: Do You #17

Today's Project: Do You post is going to be the last one. I don't know if I should be sad it's over or if I should be excited that everything's checked off!

Let's do a quick run down on how things went:

#1 - Read one book per month. Pretty darn self explanatory, right?

#2 - Work out on a regular basis. I was doing much better at this before my wisdom teeth surgery at the end of June, but since then I've stayed active at home rather than going to the YMCA 3-4 days a week.

#3 - Run a 5K. I ran/walked The Color Run on Sunday with 5 other teammates. We did incredibly well - seriously, I'm so impressed! - and I'm ready to sign up for another one already! It was!!

#4 - Add another 2K to the vacation fund. This one went out the window when a house came into the picture. It would be silly to put money in a fund that we won't use until late 2014 at the earliest, especially because more money that we can put towards a house, the less money we'll be in debt to our mortgage lender!

#5 - Plan a date night ahead of time for each month. This doesn't take a lot of explanation.

#6 - Enjoy a weekend away with Trevor. And it was a relaxing one at that!

#7 - Shape eyebrows. I finally was happy with the shape a few months back... and I've been pretty happy since then, too!

#8 - Finish our wedding scrapbook. I know it didn't say this on the list, but this was a summer goal. Now that summer's over for me, this is done and over with as well. It's not close to being done, but there's just simply much bigger and better fish to fry. I still have everything I need and I may have a scrapbooking weekend with my mom sometime in the future, but it's just not high priority right now.

#9 - Travel more. I had checked this off a while ago and I've since planned another trip to Chicago with Whitney in a couple weeks. I'm excited!

#10 - Learn to say no more often. I put this on the list because I felt that I was kind of getting walked all over at work. I'm still sticking to my guns and saying no when I don't want to pick up extra shifts at the drop of a hat.

#11 - Make more time for crafting. I finished a table, a bookcase, and a dresser within the past week and they look fantastic. I'm also in the middle of finding stuff for a gallery wall {leave links to your favorite free printables in the comments below!!} Crafting is a nice relaxer for me and I'm loving it in my life right now!

#12 - Get out of my comfort zone more often. Rule number one: Nothing about starting an accelerated nursing program with 29 strangers or buying a house is within your comfort zone.

#13 - Share our wedding on the blog. So glad I did this!!

#14 - Attend a concert. Checkity, check. And, Trevor and I are thinking about going to Chicago for another concert the first weekend of October!

#15 - See a Broadway show. BOM was amazing!

#16 - Get hearing tested again/look into surgery. It's good to know where my hearing stands and what my surgical options are. I'm not planning on going under the knife quite yet, but I'm glad I had the appointment.

#17 - Bake someone a birthday cake. I totally didn't skimp on this one! The chocolate cake I baked for Trevor was pretty yummy!

#18 - Go to the beach. What's summer without a little time with your toes in the sand?!

#19 - Forgive. I honestly feel like I've become a better person and that this comes a lot more naturally to me now.

So that's that! The list is done! Are you sad to see it go?

How are your goals coming along?

You can recap my journey by reading all of my Project: Do You posts here.

check this out!


  1. so excited for our trip and the 5k!! :)

  2. I love the picture from the color run! We are doing one in a few weeks. :)

  3. Awww so proud of you!!! You should make another one :) I love goals lists!

  4. Thank you :) I've got so many other goals lists going right now that I'm going to finish some of them and then start more!

  5. Oh my goodness, it was so much fun! I'd never want to do one on my own but running this type of 5K is a BLAST with others :) Have fun with yours!

  6. Chicago is coming up so soon! I'm pretty darn excited to show you my favorite city in the world :)

  7. Wow what a great list of accomplished goals!! I'd love to know more about you hearing being tested though! I suffer from hearing lost and had to get tubes and ear drum repair! Hope to talk soon!

  8. Yes, absolutely! I'd love to share my experience with you. I've had so many sets of tubes that I lost count. They resulted in about 50% of each of both ear drums being gone and my ENT recommends a tympanoplasty to repair them but I'm holding off because I don't have 12 weeks to recover right now. I'd love to hear about your ear drum repair and I'll tell you about my testing process :) I don't have your email address, so feel free to email me at

    Looking forward to hearing from you!

  9. Yay, nicely done, what a wonderful list of accomplishments!

    P.S. I'm giving away 5 sponsor spots this week on my blog and I'd love for you to come and enter!

  10. I just finished The Fault in Our Stars and loved it. Cried like a baby but loved it!


I love all of your comments :) I read every single one! Leave me some lovin'!
