50 in 500 - Show Us Your Life!

Kelly's Korner is hosting Show Us Your Life...it's a little piece of blog heaven where I get to peer into other people's worlds. To kick off 2010 the theme is New Year's resolutions. On my photography blog I did a post about 50 things I wanted to accomplish in 500 days; you can see the original post here. The start of 2010 got me thinking about that post, and I've decided to transfer the list to this blog and keep up with it here. I made a few tweaks from the original post, but I'm sticking with the original date, which is November 23 of this year.

So, we'll see how it goes. Luckily I've already completed a few, and I'm on my way to completing the others. :)


  1. Boy, this is an ambitious list!!! Good luck to you. . .I think just *reading* the Bible in a year (or 500 days) is daunting enough without adding memorizing a book -- good for you!

  2. Mmm Chai Tea Latte. So delicious. And I love your list.. its awesome and exciting!

  3. Those are a ton of great goals! Good luck :)

  4. You've got some great goals! May God bless your endeavors this year!
