Help, please!

If you're clicking over from Jesstagirl and Her Officer, hello!

When I first began this list, a couple people said it inspired them to begin their own 101 in 1001 list, so I was wondering how many of you actually started it because of me. You see, number 98 on my list is to "Get three people to make lists of their own." 

So how 'bout it, have any of you started a list because of me? 


(005) Go to three food festivals 
Vidalia Onion Festival in Vidalia, Georgia. So first of all, it's pronounced "Veh-dawl-ee-ah," and their "festival" was quite lame, if I do say so myself. The highlight of the day was getting a bloomin' onion and hanging out with friends:

(014) Read a book a month
Best Friends Forever by  Jennifer Weiner. I really like Weiner's other books, but this one didn't entice me as much as the others. It was okay, but nothing spectacular.

Size 12 is Not Fat by Meg Cabot. Okay, so several years ago—heck, even maybe last year—this book would've been right up my alley. It's chick lit at it's best...or at least mediocre chick lit, but either I'm growing out of this style of writing or the plot and book in general just didn't do it for me. It was good, but I guess not my cup of tea. I think I'm in a book funk, because the last two books I've read haven't captivated me the way novels used to...

(039) Send thank you notes by May 1, 2010
Woohoo! I sent these out on time :) I have pictures of me sending them...somewhere...

(059) Try a new haircut
Yup! Done and done. I cut off around 7 inches of hair :)

(075) Try one new recipe a month
12. Banana Blueberry Muffins. I used this recipe from Tasty Kitchen and they were delicious! I'll take pictures the next time I make them...

  13. Chewy Coconut M&M Cookies. (used the recipe found here)

(077) Bake and give away a dozen different baked goods
I made cookies and sent them to Kenny in a care package. 

(081) Bake at least 10 different cupcake

(085) Have a yard sale
 The first week Kenny was gone my friends and I had a yard sale at my house!

(087) Purge my closet once a year (1/3)  
I had a lot purge for the yard sale :) 

Movies Galore!

It's been called to my attention that I've abandoned my 101 blog. Ha! NEVER! In fact, I've just been doing so much off my list I haven't had time to write about all of them. But I'm here now. I'll try catching up over the next few days.

Today I'll start with movies!

(065) Watch 26 Movies I've never seen starting with each letter of the alphabet

E. Extraordinary Measures. This was your typical feel-good movie filled with happy tears. I probably wouldn't see it again but I liked it at the time.

S. Sex and the City 2. This movie, from what i've heard, is either a love it or hate it movie. Well, I saw it and I loved it. I laughed, I cried, and I felt like I was there sending money in a far off country with four women I've grown up with. I also thought it was shorter than the first movie, but that goes back to the love/hate relationship to the movie. 

U. Up in the Air. LOVED this movie. I think it's because the plot was somewhat original and the acting was great. I'm considering buying this if I see it on sale somewhere. 

V. Valentine's Day. This movie is right up my alley. It's cheesy, it's funny, and I wanted to stab "McDreamy" in his cold, cold heart. Seriously though, loved it. I was worried about watching it, because of the reviews I heard about it, but I can't wait to go out and buy this and then watch it again! 

 X. XII. Lame. This movie was kinda...lame. It turns out that this was a made-for-tv movie that aired a few years ago, but I thought it looked really great. In reality, it was just kinda...blah.
