101 in 1001


I'm not sure where this originated, but I've seen it recently on two photography blogs (Jessica Claire and Melissa Jill, both of whom are amazing at what they do!!). In any case, with it being the new year and all, I thought I would give it a try!

It was actually a lot more difficult than I thought to come up with 101 things, but if you're curious you can click HERE to view my list. Is there anything on there you could help me accomplish? What would be on your list of goals?

I liked reading your list Jen! Good to know some of your goals that maybe I can help you with. It's also fun to learn new things about you even though I know a lot because I'm your little sister! I also want to make a headboard...so maybe I should just buy a nail gun and we could make it a weekend project!

Jen-I just started following your Look for Less blog and clicked over to see your 101 in 1001 list. How inspiring! I am thinking about making my own list and suggesting it to my dear sisters-in-law to share on our next retreat. I also think it is neat that you are an Iowa girl sharing your fashion advice since I am a farmwife (old enough to be your mom) who is very interested in fashion as well. Who said we can't dress well in the midwest? Thanks for the inspiration!

Abby - Thanks! You definitely should buy a nail gun so we could make headboards together!

Amber - Thanks, I'll definitely hit you up for some ideas!!

Susan - Thank you (and thanks for commenting!)!! I think it's a great idea to share the idea with your sisters-in-law. I hope you guys have as much fun making the list as I did.

Glad to see there's another midwesterner visiting the blog, hope you continue to enjoy it!

I can totally help you with #28 when you come visit NYC :)

I can help you with a few I think:

I want to run a 5K this year as well so we should find one around Iowa City in the late spring and sign up. Then let the training begin!

I want to check out a yoga class as well. Not hot yoga though. But there's a yoga studio on every corner in this town so we have lots of options.

And I think the four of us should learn to play tennis doubles. Can't you see Matt and Josh in white shorts with sweatbands around their heads just bopping around the court trying so hard not to swing & miss? ha but seriously, this summer its on.

Jen @ Jen Madigan Photography said...

Rachel - Sounds good! I really need to get my butt on the treadmill but I think the NL rec center also has an indoor track which might be better for training? We'll have to talk about this.

I don't want to do hot yoga either, I'd probably pass out. We'll have to research some places and maybe go on a Saturday or Sunday morning sometime.

Haha, YES! Although Josh is pretty good at tennis I think, or at least he's played before. I'm probably going to be the one trying hard not to miss the ball (sans sweatband).

Hey, I want to run in a race too. I was just telling austin that and he didn't like the idea too well, so I will have to do it with you and rachel.

Jen @ Jen Madigan Photography said...

Yeah, definitely! We haven't talked about picking a race but I know that Iowa City does a Run for the Schools in the fall. I think Jessica wants to run too.
