10 / 100

April 10, 2011

100 in 1001??
i’m sure you’ve all seen some great 100 in 1001 lists, right? if not, here’s a great example! the idea is to put down 100 dreams, wishes, or goals to be accomplished over the next three-ish years.

if you can believe it, i’ve never written such a list.


i think it’s because i really like to keep my lists/goals attainable, and 3 years just seems like such a long time! i mean, who knows if i’ll even actually want to do the same things 3 years from now?

but, i do love lists. and i love that the 100 in 1001 lists are generally filled with FUN dreams/plans/activities rather than the staid tasks that usually dominate resolution lists [i’m no exception!].

so, i’ve come up with a compromise: how about 10 in 100? that way, the tasks can be more seasonal, and there’s less pressure to make the perfect, complete list, because hey — in a few months, i can make a new one!

my 10 in 100
apparently, 100 days takes us deep into the heart of summer. this year is going SO fast!

✰ 1. have a dedicated spa/relaxation day this will probably end up being on my birthday next month! i will go the whole nine yards: yoga; massage; pedi; perhaps even a facial. ahhh i’m already excited 🙂

✰ 2. get some cute yoga gear even though i know it may lead me down an expensive slippery slope, i don’t think i can hold out much longer — i have to check out our local lululemon. yes, HAVE to.

✰ 3. identify a new local running route once we move i am boring and like to run the same loops all of the time — so i have to find a good one from our door in durham!

something like this . . .
✰ 4. go to the farmer’s market, and preferably buy the bulk of the week’s groceries there.

✰ 5. try bull city burger and brewery [i KNOW josh will approve of this goal]

✰ 6. work on the foundations for titibasana/firefly [actually getting INTO this pose — probably not happening in 100 days!]

✰ 7. host another blogger gathering i i think this would be #3! i’ll have to figure out if it will be before or after our big move.

✰ 8. visit my family a short-but-sweet visit is already planned for june . . .

✰ 9. clean out my iTunes / find 3 new great albums

it’s a MESS in there!

✰ 10. make a delicious summery dessert i’ll take any suggestions!

15 years ago. 10th grade. it was a big year: i learned to do a back handspring. i went to state orchestra [playing violin]. i wore an awesome silver dress from 5-7-9 to the school valentine’s dance. i often fell asleep in algebra II [and then discovered coffee, which helped me stop!]. and i was extremely proud of my nail polish collection, which included every color of the rainbow, including sparkles.

unbeknownst to me at the time, 1996 was also the year my future husband graduated from duke university with an art history/civil engineering degree. funny how the age difference seems to have narrowed significantly since then!

i think the years have treated him well, don’t you?
perhaps because during the past 9 years of med school and surgery residency, sun exposure was . . . limited, to say the least 🙂

partying it up:

i wasn’t sure what to expect, but actually thought the gala’s dinner was great!

sweet-potato quesadilla, various salads, guac, and delicious shrimp

all right, time to get outside and on with the day! if anyone else is moved to think of their own 10 in 100, i’d love to read them!

    5-7-9…what a flashback!! Love the list and I hope you have another blogger meet up! Can’t think of 10 right now but a couple would be to find some fun outdoor activities in our new city and to plant herbs at our new house once we’re moved in..I’ve never grown anything before so it should be interesting…

    Could you tell us more abt josh? how did he decide on medicine, and then later surgery? what are his teachniques to staying organized with his busy lifelstyle?

    hey sarah! i liked your list. although i’m slower than you, i’d love to test out some new running routes with you once you move! the one you outlines is not all that different than the way i sometimes run!

    what a great post! i love the pics of you, josh is handsome and you are lovely, cute dress and hair! i just thought of an idea for a post i’d like you to do…..how to organize iTunes! sheesh, i struggle with using that silly (easy?) thing and understanding podcasts and audio books and such. if you’re not interested in doing that, fine, just leave me in the weeds! 😉

    I saw a great dessert on the cooking channel ( not the food channel) I think it would qualify as a summery dessert. Basically it was a thin liquidy "cheese cake " mixture poured over poached berries and fruit (of course with a little Etoh on board.) looked great Michael Chiarello was the chef so I’m sure you could find the recipe on the interenet

    I am definitely going to join you in the 10 for 100 idea! Thank you for coming up with this. I already have some idea, and I will post the list on my blog soon. And thank you for stopping by, I hope you get as much out of the scott young blog as I do.

    There is much truth in these opinions. It is also true that many of the Polish traditional dishes are not particularly healthy. But that is no reason to Poland Food give up Polish food. First of all the "unhealthy" (but very tasty) things may be safely enjoyed provided that you eat them in moderation.
