My 2017 Annual Bucket List


A personal blog for today! A lot of my friends ask about my goals - I'm a very goal driven person... and checking things off really satisfies my goal driven personality! Every year I set goals & activities I want to accomplish. To track these things, big & small, I make a check list.

It's now late March and I've been able to check off 17 things! I'm hoping to be able to check off a few DC ones this weekend. As you can see some things are small - like baking a cake, sending cards, and a date day. Others are bigger and funner - like saving $500, going to Sesame Place, and NYC for a weekend.

I thought it would be fun to post my list here and check them off, and share a picture as I go! I will be updating throughout the year so feel free to check back to see what's been checked off!
