#77 ATV on the Beach & a List update

Dude, I'm hardcore. You see that pink hoodie? Don't mess.

And don’t worry… that was forever ago. No babies were harmed.

It feels like it’s been about 8 years since I’ve done an update 101 Things list. I’ve actually been keeping up on it, which is pretty brag-worthy considering I haven’t followed through with one single goal I’ve set for myself in ages. Or like ever in my life.

It’s funny to go through my list and see the things I accomplished right away, and then the things I’ve been putting off for the past year and a half.


Eat at 3 new restaurants. Easy.

Start planning for Baby Gable #2. Yeahh, I skipped that step and went straight for the gold. Now I’m being forced to plan though, sooo, done.

Bake a batch of rainbow chip cupcakes. Or 15.


Read 50 books. Umm. Try 2, both of which involved vampires and were found in the Young Adult section in Target. The shame.

Sing Karaoke. This is honestly the most terrifying thing on my list and I will be putting it off until the VERY last minute. It involves all my greatest fears: singing in front of people, standing on a stage & peeing my pants. (It’s inevitable.)

Go a month without buying lattes. I will surely die. Let’s just be real here.

I obviously have my priorities in line: Making babies and eating good food.

So hooray for goals!

#42: Climb to the top of a waterfall

This weekend, Justin and I took a day trip to Shaver Lake to visit Alyssa and her man Chris at their family’s awesome cabin. We had a blast, seriously… these two are hilarious.

While out on a walk, we stumbled upon a waterfall. It’s no Niagara Falls, but there was no way I was going to pass up the opportunity to stand at the top and take a picture. Finally, I’m able to cross this one off my list!


I realize this picture makes it look a whole 2 feet tall, but I promise it wasn’t that lame. See the terrified look on my face? Yeah.

#30 Take a weekend trip alone with Justin

Justin and I spent Valentine’s Day weekend at Pismo beach in an adorable little house just a couple hundred feet from the water. While we were there, I was all charged up to cross as many things off my list as I could. (I may have added in a few things that could be easily accomplished, knowing I was going to the beach this weekend… don’t judge me.)

Here are some super high quality cell phone pictures as proof:

Why my head is freakishly morphed, I'll never know...
#53: Eat at three new restaurants (The Cracked Crab)
#53: Eat at three new restaurants (1: The Cracked Crab)

I know you’re loving the bib. I swore I would NEVER wear one of those things, but our waiter snuck up behind me and just started tying that sucker on. Thanks, Anthony. Thanks a lot.

Justin is having some fun editing a video we took while we were there, so stay tuned for that goodness.
