100 things to do in 2012: month in review

happy fall! i swear, it seems like just yesterday that i was ringing in 2012 on a cramped boston apartment couch, sandwiched in between one of my best friends and a semi-creepy guy trying to get me to cook dinner for him. but i digress! despite my gallbladder debacle, i still managed to make progress on my list this month. who wants to go to halloween horror nights at universal in october to help me check that one off?!

29. watch 26 new movies, one for each letter of the alphabet: CONTINUED.

i did see "celeste & jesse forever," which was great, but i'd already crossed off "C" with chronicle earlier in the year. however, i went to "pitch perfect" last night-HILARIOUS, btw- so i'm one letter closer. on a sidenote, people were like, clapping randomly after performances in the movie? which i thought was really odd.

76. win a trip: WON A HOTEL STAY!

so close! i entered an instagram photo from my summer travels into a sweepstakes doubletree was running and was one of the winners! i got a sweet prize pack with certificates for a 2-night stay, plus a beach towel, luggage tag, tote bag, computer screen cleaners, baseball cap and tin of their signature chocolate chip cookies! if i somehow win a flight by the end of the year i'll count this one as complete.

87. take a spontaneous day trip: COMPLETED.

last sunday, my roommate and i decided to head to downtown disney for the day - i know many people think i live like, in the magic kingdom, but i'm actually about 40ish minutes away, so this totally counts as a day trip. we enjoyed a lovely lunch on the water at fulton's crab house, wandered in and out of the shops among the tourists, and topped it off with some legit hot fudge sundaes at ghirardelli's. a perfect sunday!


  1. I think that counts as winning a trip! Now I want a hot fudge sundae...

  2. alright, totally counting it! :) that sundae was the best $9(!!) i ever spent.
