#94 Go to London

Ahh London what to say about you....well the history oh the history. We saw, we took pictures, we had some beer. I think I was expecting more out of the place but to be fair we were only there for 1 night. During the day one of the days Katie and I went to the shopping area, by Oxford Circus. That was amazing. We shopped and bought dresses at Top Shop! Then we ate at this delicious noodle place (thanks to a friend's recommendation.)

#93 Hit up Munich

Yay Munich! Yay Beer! Yay German Food! Ok so this was a blast prepare to be bombarded by photos my loyal followers. Bavaria is by far my favorite place in Germany. I loved the history, the buildings, the people, and obviously the beer. We took a walking tour of the city and learned a lot. We also went on a beer garden crawl and they even took us to the grounds for Oktoberfest! Joy of Joys! Nest time I visit I must be there for the event.

ps. Note the glockenspiel.

#92 Get a Beer at the Delirium Bar in Brussels.

This was so exciting. I had a greta time drinking the beer from the keg in the bar!!! I played fair and I had Nocturnum and Tremens! Yum-o, to take one from Rachel! This indeed helped Katie and I enjoy our waffles a bit more I have to say. The bar was very big and decorated in an amazing way.

#91 Buy Work Shoes.

Ok so I bought work shoes but the drama was huge!! It took a month and 2 weeks to get to the store. The woman calls me frantically in Europe to tell me they arrived, but at the wrong store. She then has then shipped to my store and it takes another week! All for stupid ugly work clogs.

#88 Whiten Teeth

Haha this is ongoing but I finished this set! Look at my pretty smile....

#76 Head to Philly

I went to Philly in Sept. 09 to visit my dear friend Nathan and it was lovely. I was only there for 2 days and yet I managed to enjoy myself. I tried a cheesesteak. It was everything I thought it would be. Steak, mushrooms, onions, and jalapenos smothered in cheese whiz. All on a roll. Yum yum! I also took in the sites. The Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, the Mint....etc. All in all nice place to visit.

#9 Visit Belgium!

So I went to Belgium, Brussels specifically it was amazing. My friend Katie and I visited in Sept of 09. We took the train there from Amsterdam and let me tell you, when we got off the train we were less than thrilled. I seemed slightly ghetto. Then we got to our hotel and we were the only Americans for miles. But as we started sight seeing we started to enjoy. The Grand Palace area was beautiful and we stopped for mucho chocolate and waffles..after the bars of course! Nothing is better than waffle munchies at night!

#35 Get a Facial!

I finally got my first facial! It was with a massage as well and was quite lovely. I don't think I want to get too many of these. When the humidifier thingy was on me I felt like I couldn't breathe not pleasant, but I think thats because I am very claustrophobic..but I have great skin apparently and now I know I need to use a toner..woohoo

#4 Watch all the Lord of the Rings Movies

So I watched all of these movies with nice of him to be amused with me. It took forever to watch 2 and 3 because I had to go to two different stores, apparently someone decided to steal the 3rd movie from the first store. But I definitely enjoyed these movies and would also love to read the books now!

#1 Write the List

The Mission:
Complete 101 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days.

The Criteria:
Tasks must be specific (ie. no ambiguity in the wording) with a result that is either measurable or clearly defined. Tasks must also be realistic and stretching (ie. represent some amount of work on my part).

Why 1001 Days?
Many people have created lists in the past - frequently simple goals such as New Year's resolutions. The key to beating procrastination is to set a deadline that is realistic. 1001 Days (about 2.75 years) is a better period of time than a year, because it allows you several seasons to complete the tasks, which is better for organizing and timing some tasks such as overseas trips or outdoor activities.

Start Date:
June 16, 2009

End Date:
March 13, 2012
