1001 Days Later: Final 101 in 1001 Update

Monday, October 22, 2018

Happy Monday y'all! I am so excited to be sharing today's blog post as it is a wrap up of my 101 in 1001 list. For all of y'all who may not be familiar with the concept, Mackenzie Horan of Design Darling came up with the idea a few years ago to make a list of 101 items to accomplish in 1001 days (roughly 2.5 years). I started my list on January 13, 2016 and finished on October 10, 2018. I was able to accomplish 50 out of 101 tasks (just under 50% completed!) and wanted to recap some of my favorites and some that will be on my next 101 in 1001 list!

Throughout my 1001 days, I have been updating y'all on my progress, which y'all can read here, here, here, and here. You can also find my original list here!

Here are some of my favorite items that I was able to complete along with some fun pictures:

10. Take a Pure Barre class

12. Write (and mail) a hundred hand-written notes

23. Go a month without shopping

We went to the ACC game in Charlotte last December and it was so fun to show off my hometown before the game started!

47. Explore uptown Charlotte with friends

53. Visit NYC

The Lilly store in Jacksonville, Florida, which I visited in this post

62. Visit five different Lilly Pulitzer stores

80. Meet five other bloggers in person

The day I decided I would go to Clemson!

85. Decide on a college!
