101 in 1001 list update no. 1

Hi everyone, how has your first week of 2016 been so far? Overall mine has been pretty good aside from a major computer issue I have had! I had grand plans of getting a lot done at Starbucks on Monday morning and that quickly came to an end around 2:00pm when I had my computer freeze up and not turn on. Luckily the Genius Bar is filled with amazing tech savvy people and they are putting a new hard drive in my computer. Not exactly how I wanted to start my week off, but I will be happy when I have my (healthy) computer back haha. I have a few fun posts coming up (that were planned for yesterday and today) so be on the lookout next week for them.

I wanted to share my update on my 101 in 1001 list with you all! Even though it’s only been a few months, I have been able to accomplish a lot on this list. I am looking forward to continuing to check items off of this list! If you start a 101 in 1001 list I would love for you to share it in the comments below! 🙂
