Dine at Ten New Restaurants

This, of course, was a really fun one. We always love to try new restaurants. I didn't even have to think about this goal to meet it. I actually didn't even realize I had accomplished it until a few days later when I was checking in. If you want to see the list of restaurants, go here

Earn 500k Nike+ Fuel

I didn't realize I was so close to finishing this goal. I hadn't been wearing my FuelBand for a couple of months, and I just put it back on again yesterday. I guess these two days is all it took for me to complete the 500k! Now on to 1M. I better be consistent and wear it every day now to keep the momentum going. Wish me luck!

Use My Clarisonic Pedi Every Day for 1 Month

Even though I didn't use the system as a whole exactly the correct way, I have to say my feet are much smoother. And I have a routine, which is what the point of this goal really was. So now I just have to continue what I've been doing, and add the rest in. Because I know my feet will be even smoother and prettier once I start using the balm every day too.

Have a Drink at the John Hancock Center

Tonight Rich and I went to the Signature Lounge for a drink and to look at the view to celebrate our 8th year together. It was fun being together (as usual), but the experience wasn't grand. We weren't thinking and were not prepared for the shit show of a Saturday night. I definitely feel as though I'll need to come back to really enjoy it. Perhaps during the day or directly after work on a weekday. Maybe then I'll be able to take some pictures too.

Make Homemade Nutella

I don't know exactly what happened. Maybe I accidentally burned the hazelnuts. Maybe I added too much salt. Maybe I should have used better quality chocolate. Maybe it just isn't a very good recipe. Whatever it is, the Nutella turned out good, but not great. It has a bit of a saltiness or a bitterness that I just don't love. If I do it again, I think I'll try a different recipe and not baking the hazelnuts for quite as long.

Yarn Bomb

My favorite yarn shop had an event last night to kick off the annual Chicago yarn crawl for those of us who attended to work together to yarn bomb the tree and fence outside the front of the store. I was really excited because I had wanted to yarn bomb for a long time (it was actually a goal on my last list that I just didn't get done). This made it really easy and attainable for me to accomplish because I didn't have to do it alone. I had a great time knitting my square and chatting with the other women, and the margarita and the goody bag didn't hurt either.
