Can't believe I haven't updated this since April 30th! Obviously, some of these items are still unachievable with COVID...especially with the delta variant raging (pls wear your mask!). 

Began: February 14, 2020
Ends: November 11, 2022
19 completed, 42 to go!
In Progress

17. Visit a new national park — On our insane summer trip I went to not one but six parks and two national monuments. They were all epic and you can check them out here!

26. Make Croquembouche — Oof am I proud of myself for this one! Twas rough and I made a TikTok about it, but it was so worth it. Someone recently asked me what my favorite thing to bake is, and genuinely I just like baking things that are a challenge to me and this felt like the ultimate version of that.

30. Do something for my career — Well...this has happened a few times. The main one was I created the Visit Longmont Visitor Guide but I also participated in a yearlong leadership class at my company and started presenting about TikTok to industry people. I'm presenting at a big conference in Colorado in November that I'm pumped about!

55. Buy something big for myself — As part of completing those big things at work, I decided I would buy myself the Princess Diana sheep sweater from Rowing Blazers. It has arrived and I'm psyched to wear it this fall!

1. Read 100 books — I've read 11 since April 30th, which is a little more than 2.5 books a month! I'm working through my bookclub list and just a massive amount of stuff on my TBR list. Currently Reading: Tender at the Bone & The Saboteurs

4. Do 4 more Haute Table travel guides — Speaking of the Colorado roadtrip, I wrote another travel guide! I just have one more to do and then we can cross it off.

23. See the Kit Carson Carousel — Planning to do this before Labor Day!

31. Throw 3 more parties — We threw our first party since COVID-19 became a thing and had an absolute blast talking about red flags...not to mention it went viral on TikTok. Read about how we hosted it here >>

32. Re-read all of the Harry Potter books — Fall is coming around the mountain and I've decided to undertake this goal during that time. I'm pumped to see what they are like from my perspective as not a 7th grader. ALSO, let's all remember that the author is not a good person. 

56. Bake bread — I just need to do it. I bought the yeast. 

57. Keep fresh flowers in the apartment for 3 months — By Sept. 1 this will be done!

59. Go flower picking — Hopefully doing this, this weekend!
