Summer Goals

For a while now I have seen 101 Things in 1001 Days lists on other blogs. I always find these types of things interesting because other people are sharing their goals with you and they have set a deadline for when these goals need to be completed. Tracy and I had talked about these lists and the things that other bloggers where committing themselves to do so several months ago we finally decided to make our own lists too. We would work on our lists and then talk about the things we had put on our own list. Sometimes Tracy would tell me things on hers that I wanted to do too and since it was on both of our lists it would be something we could do together. It took a few weeks to complete my list, coming up with 101 goals that I can easily measure took some thinking. My goals range from things that I can complete in a day to a week to a month to until probably the 1001 days are up. So I have been working on these goals for a couple of months now and I have around a dozen completed. Looking over my list though I have a dozen or so goals that I still want to complete this summer and around ten that I will be working towards meeting. I am not going to share my whole list right now, but here are some of the goals that I want to complete before Summer has officially ended: 1) Go on a picnic.

2) Host a movie marathon.

3) Paint my nails more.

4) Go to the drive in movies.

5) Swing.

These are just a few things that I am going to accomplish this summer. What are you going to finish before summer official ends?


  1. These are great goals! I'm trying to make homemade ice cream, save more money, and explore new neighborhoods in my area. Painting nails is one of my favorite things, it's so therapeutic! and I love being able to have the power to change them anytime I want :)

  2. Wow. Jessica, your list is great! Good for you. Love the #3 because I've been doing that or trying to and using colors that I normally wouldn't.
    Happy weekend!

  3. Great list, I need to paint my nails more and see more movies, read more books too. I'll try and do a list as well :) Have a great weekend xx

  4. I need to make my own version of this list - it sounds like such a great idea! My big summer goal is just to get my dissertation transitioned into a monograph, which I am sure will take all summer.

  5. Great idea! Kind of like a bucket list, but with an actual ending date haha


  6. i have a drive in movie theater that is only 30 min away from where i live and we seriously go to it all the time lol mostly friday or saturday nights


  7. I have been wanting to make a 101 things to do in 1001 days list, but i have been so ridiculously busy that I haven't had time to even make one!! I did make a summer reading list, so I am hoping to work my way through that this summer. I am also thinking we will be going on a picnic soon!
