So that is everything I have completed so far! It is a lot more than I realised. I have worked out that if I complete 1 item every 8 days I will be all done by this time next year. I really hope I can finish everything but there are a few things on my list that I am a bit concerned about so they might not get done. We'll see!


  1. Wow! Great job!! You've got so much done!! I should really take a look at what I've done in total...cause I don't think I have that many completed. Gulp! Your list made me realize that I should really bust my arse and get a move on with my goals!

    Keep up the great work Kat! :)

  2. Heellloooo!! It's so good to be back! Goodness me, you have done an excellent job doing all those things on your list. I absolutely adore that photo of you in the 1950s dress. It's gorrrrrgeous, you should wear it every day. haha.

    Oooo I see you're getting married! Congrats! Are you making your wedding dress?

  3. Wow Kat, you really have achieved heaps and such varied things too! What a great idea!

  4. you want to start on my list now?

  5. Oh wow! You are killing it Kat! :) All while planning and diy-crafting a wedding. You are a super woman! I'm so impressed at all the travelling you've done. You go girl! :DDD

  6. Laughing my ass off at your head on a plate!!

  7. Way to go!!! I love this, just checked out your list and I'm sure you'll have no problem finishing in time. I should probably create a list of my probably won't be 101 things though! Congrats on your progress!
