101 in 1001 Update

"give up soda for a month"
I'm on day 11/30 and getting to the point where I no longer want soda.

"give up candy for a month"
I gave up candy for lent. Obviously that's going to be longer then a month but hey, nothing wrong with that.

"Get in the habit of waking up at 6:00"
As I've mentioned before, I'm slowly working my way down towards a 6 o clock wake up. Currently my alarm clock has me waking up 6:40. So my bet is this will be crossed off in another month or so.

"buy new contact lenses"


"watch 50 movies that I've never seen"

 my ratings

"Steel Magnolias" - I enjoyed watching this, it didn't instantly become one of my favorite movies ever, but it was good!

"Southern Belles" - for the majority of the movie, I didn't know what I was watching but I must have laughed the most I ever have when the scene comes on where Belle gets offended by the French girl trying to find cat food! LMAO. That part cracked me up. This was cute, Laura Breckenridge is pretty!

"Sabrina" - I liked watching this mainly because of the simplicity of it. One reason why I love older films! I also enjoyed watching Audrey <3

"Eat Pray Love" - Of course the book was more detailed but besides that, they couldn't have made the movie any better. I liked Julia Roberts in this - I didn't like her in Steel Magnolias! She's a good actress don't get me wrong, but I don't like her younger day acting. If that makes sense.

"Pretty in Pink" - Yes, I had never seen this movie before now, but I loved it! I think it became one of my favorites. I especially LOVED Iona (Annie Potts). It's crazy when a movie becomes your favorite and you realize how old it is. That characters are much older then they were, but whatever. It's still a good movie.

"read 25 books"


"Eat Pray Love" - I heard so many bad reviews before I read this. A lot of people were saying how Elizabeth was selfish and people weren't able to relate to it because she was constantly talking about herself. Well for one, it is HER book about HER journey so I don't understand why people wasted their time even saying thatt. I don't know about you but I was able to relate. This book, in a way made me want to be closer to God. It makes me want to one day travel and enjoy life. It even made me interested in going to an ashram!

"The Vow" - Of course I saw the movie before reading the book, but it was like two separate stories. I like how the book and movie are different, but the same. I like how this book was a short and fast read. My kind of book, haha!

"Something Borrowed" -  I FINALLY started reading Emily Griffin's books! From the moment I opened and started reading this book, I was hooked and didn't want to put it down. I was so happy with how it ended. I was happy Dex and Rachel ended up together.

"Have a TV day"
I put this on my list because at the time I had absolutely no time for any of my shows, but in the last couple weeks I've pretty much caught up and have gotten plenty of TV time in.

"Catch up on Pretty Little Liars"

The new season started back up last Monday. ABC family had a PLL marathon leading up to the season premiere. I watched it all day and I can totally say I'm caught up ((:

"apply for the bunny job, again"


last year I worked the one month job of the Easter bunny set in the mall! I was only the Easter bunny twice - lol that suit is torture! But I had fun selling packages and taking pictures of the kids with the bunny. I applied to be a part of the set again this year. I'll let you know whether or not I get the job!

"bake 10 new recipes"

   I made apple chips ((:
 "Start eating sandwich thins instead of sandwich bread"
I bought sandwich thins last Monday and no longer plan on purchasing regular bread.

"Pay for car sticker"
parents paid for it - I paid them back by buying groceries!

"Buy a Marilyn Monroe Picture - Frame it for my room"

I ordered the picture online then bought the frame from Michaels. I am so so happy this picture is here now and no more pictures from like three years ago!

I loved reading this post! I would love to not want a soft drink, but I don't know that I could give it up! I need to sit down and write up a plan to read more and watch new movies!
