101 in 1001 update

With another month behind us, it's time to update you on progress I made on my 101 in 1001 list that I started a few months ago.

Here's what I crossed off in August:

21. Go to a Nashville Sounds game - I got a bunch of friends together one evening and we checked it out for a little while.  They're not particularly exciting, but it's always fun to spend an evening with good friends!

26. Visit 3 new states - I can't quite cross off this one, but I made some serious progress by visiting Oregon and Washingon last week.  I just finished my posts on the trip, so you can easily navigate backward to read about the trip if you like.  And yes, spending one day in a state counts.  It's my list and I say so. :)

45. Give money to people who are fundraising at least 4 times a year - I don't like to make a big deal about this, but I did make a donation this month.

55. Meet at least one blog friend per year in person - I had only been reading their blogs for a few months before I went to Portland, but I was excited to run a few miles with Alisa and Gazelle while I was in town.

84a. Try 10 new beers in the States - I tried an Easy Blonde at the Big Horse Brewery in Hood River, Oregon.

95. Watch one new movie per month, minimum - This month I recall watching an Ashton Kutcher film called Personal Effects (it was odd) along with Slumdog Millionaire (finally, I know) and Sunshine Cleaning (loved it!)

96. Read one book per month, minimum - I finished Emily Griffin's Something Borrowed to meet my one per month minimum along with this random book called The Sweet Spring that I got for free last time I hit the used bookstore, but I didn't have as much time to read this month for some reason.  I think I spent more time on my scrapbook.

I didn't cross off quite as much as I'd like to this month, but I figure knocking off two states was kind of a big deal.  I am also doing stuff toward some of the other items on the list that are more of a long-term type work in progress.

I read "Something Borrowed" wasn't my favorite but it was a cute fast read.

I think it's awesome you have this list. Gives you mini goals to accomplish throughout the year.

My hubby would be happy that trying 10 new beers was on your list =).

You're making good progress on your goals! Have you read "Something Blue" too? I like those books. Her newest book (can't think of the title now) was good, too.
