Update on 101 in 1001 (dec 2014)

101 update Dec 2014


29.  Eat bacon in something it really doesn't belong in (ie. a cupcake)

I picked up a bag from the store that was maple bacon cookie mix.  They were pretty good.  I think they needed the icing that I was too cheap to buy. I may need to find a homemade recipe that would really punch up the flavors.

33.  Bring or send Christmas cookies to at least three different people (4/3)

I sent hubby to work with some tubs of cookies to give out.  I made a total of 3 tubs and one for some of our friends.  Overall this is one I may do again next year.  It reminded how much I love baking and trying new cookie recipes.

74.  Surprise hubby with a gift I know he wants but will not get himself

Well this Christmas shopping for hubby was difficult but I was able to pick up a few surprise.  You can read about what he got here.

84.  Buy a piece of clothing out of my comfort zone
 Skinny jeans

Working on

3. Develop 5 new family family traditions (2/5)

I mentioned the Christmas Eve box in my last 101 update but now it is finished!

We also decided that we are going to read one story from this books every day until Christmas.  They are great stories with beautiful pictures.

4. Cut down our own Christmas Tree (1/2)

You can read more about our trip to Grant Tree Farm here.

16. Make a felt Playhouse for Bear

I wrote about the start of it here

19. Eat one vegetarian meal per month for this project. (5/31)

This month I made Winter stew.  Its meanly made up of butternut squash, spinach, and beans just to name a few ingredients.  I wish I had kept a picture of the end result but here is what I took when I was prepping for it.  

20.  Bake something new every month for this project (sweet or savory) (5/31)

I made Strata this month.  It was very yummy!  I do wish I had taken pictures of it.  
22.  Cook... 10 New Dinners (2/10)

We made Chicken Dumpling Soup.  It really is fabulous.

24. Do twenty-five food related pinterest pins (1/25)

Grinch cookies.  I made them for the cookie exchange for the coffee group.  Despite not having the heart sprinkles they needed, I think the icing worked well as a substitute.

57.  Watch 25 movies that Hubby recommends that I have not seen (8/25)

I am plugging away on this one for sure.  

Taking pic of my tv screen seems to make the picture look funny.

This movie really was pretty good.  Its all plot with a bit of action.  I like movies like this a lot.  Frankly I think over all this movie was pretty good.

I also watched Captain America: winter soldier, Thor, Thor: the Dark World, and Guardians of the Galaxy.   All were pretty good!  Then again I like the marvel/DC movies so this wasn't so much of a push to watch them. 

76.  Read twenty-five books (fifteen of which must be eBooks) (3/25)

High heels and tractor wheels by ree Drummond

The happiest baby on the block by Harvy Karp

On Becoming Pretoddlerwise: from babyhood to toddlerhood (parenting your 12 to 18 month old)

94.  Purchase fifteen pieces of jewelry (costume jewelry counts) (1/15)

Charming Charlie has made this one too easy to complete.  I am counting the items that I purchased for myself and those that I received as gifts.

This is what I got for my Birthday.

101.  Go through all my clothing, donate any unwanted usable clothing

I started going through my clothes this week.  I have too much stuff.  Things I hold onto for no reason what so ever.  Things I'll never fit in again.  Two garbage bags later and I'd say that our yard sale pile has doubled.

Failed (redo!)

92.  Maintain painted nails/toenails for two consecutive months (0/8 weeks)

Yeah this is going to obviously be a redo. I put this on here with the intent to keep my nails and/or looking nice all the time.  Well I haven't been keeping up on the nail polish but I have been weekly filing and buffing my nails.  So the intent of this has been achieved but I do really need to start painting my nails again.  So hopefully I can set aside some time every week to actually do this.  However I don't think will likely happen while we are here in Louisiana.  Maybe the next location? Who knows.
