24 before 24: Update 1

Hi all!  I have been on a little bit of a blogging hiatus lately.  I hate that I haven't been able to post, but I have been spending some much needed quality time with my boyfriend.  I had Friday off work because of the conference I went to earlier in the week, so after a late meeting on Thursday, I made the drive to meet my boyfriend.  The extra day together was nice, because we were able to sleep in.  Last night, I was supposed to head home, but when he took me back to my car, there was a little ice storm in Lexington, so we got to spend another night together.  It was nice to just completely relax - eat pizza and junk food, watch crime shows, and get in the questionable hotel hot tub...  Did y'all have a nice weekend?!

This post is actually about the progress that I've been making on my 24 before 24 list!  I made it exactly a month ago, and I'm going to post an update on the 17th of every month to keep myself accountable.  Here's what I've been up to:

  1. Devoting myself to a devotional - I have started a devotional that I can't get enough of - Delight Yourself in The Lord... Even on Bad Hair Days.  I genuinely look forward to reading it every night and journaling about it.  Any suggestions on a devotional when I finish this one?

  2. 100 Happy Days Challenge - I'm on day 29 of the challenge!  This has been a real gem, because it has forced me to think about what makes me happy on days that I've been uncharacteristically sad. 
  3. Utilize the shift key - I'm working on it!
  4. Become a devoted yogi - I have struggled lately because of my odd travel schedule.  I'm looking forward to going this Wednesday, though!

  5. Plan an amazing bridal shower - It's in the works!  I also found out that I get to help with the Bachelorette Party, so I'm psyched about that!

  6. Visit a "Paint your own pottery" studio - I'm going this week with a friend and her daughter... Yay!
  7. Stay away from caffeine - I haven't cheated a single time!
  8. Continue improvements on the blog -  I added sponsor links and things of that nature!  I'm also learning how to create cute graphics.  Slow but steady :)
  9. Put more effort into my professional appearance - I've been on a kick of fixing my hair!  Wooohooo!

  10. Keep smiling - I'm all smiles :)
  11. Continue doing things that scare me - I went to my first work conference, which included spending six hours in a car with my boss.  Talk about nerve-wrecking!  But we ended up having a blast!  I've also been taking the initiative to recruit clients without my boss around.  This "task" is definitely helping me to grow as a person. 
So here's what I've been up to... What have you been up to?!  Happy St. Patrick's Day!

XX,

SS

    1. I did it once before & was super strict about it, but I cheated one day for a sweet tea, and it all spiraled out of control from there :(

      p.s. - LOVE your site so far :)

  3. Good for you staying away from caffeine! I am a coffee addict =( I suppose there could be worse things to be addicted to though!

    1. You're right... There are plenty worse things! Caffeine causes me to have seizure like spells, so as much as I love it, I have to be done with it. :( I've moved on to an addiction with infused water! Haha :)

  6. Loved this! I am currently on day 6 of the 100 days of happiness challenge and so far I really like it! I am also trying to get more into yoga- two times a week is not nearly enough! :)
