so, it is just over two weeks until my birthday, and i have to say that i've made pretty good progress on my list.  i'm going to do my best to squeeze in a few of these this weekend and next.  i really hope to cross them all off!


i have plans to go ice skating on saturday, and then hopefully hit up the new museum this weekend or next.  i scored a group coupon for tree, so that should be easy enough to take care of.  i finally dug up the parts for my sewing machine, but i still need to make something.  i've been trying new recipes, but i'm not really sure how to define "learn a new recipe."  i think i was just hoping to cook more, which i have been.  rather, my husband has and i've been assisting.  =)  i bought mini blinds for my curtains and some fabric with every intention of making shades like these, but i just haven't gotten around to it yet. and now, we will likely be moving when our lease is up . . . so i think i can let that one go.  i made it to the halloween parade, so if i can get up and out for the thanksgiving parade, it's just a bonus.  i think it will depend on the weather next week.  


let's see . . . what else?  i've done a bit of thrift/vintage shopping, but not quite as much as i intended.  i think that one should be ongoing at any rate.  the cleaning and organizing?  meh.  i made a decent start, but then got busy and it got messy again.  we have made several big trips to goodwill, though, so that's a good thing.  as for documenting the list, i've blogged about a few of the completed items and have taken lots of photos.  i'll start printing them off and assembling a mini book, which i'll be sure to share here when finished!
