Trips and Lists and Updates

I’ve finished off a few more of my 101 goals which is great because I’ve just reached the point where I only have 6 months left.

#19: Make a “Things we want to do/buy together” list with Andrew.

We finished this a few weeks ago, but this will obviously be an ongoing work in progress. I won’t type out EVERYTHING we added but here are just a few of the things we want to do and buy together:

  • Go to Kangaroo valley
  • Go to the Powerhouse museum
  • Go to Cairns for the weekend
  • Plan a late honeymoon
  • Buy a new couch
  • Buy a new bed
  • Get our African art framed

#57: Go on 3 spontaneous day/weekend trips with Andrew.

This week I had a totally random opportunity to go to the Gold Coast to help out my cousin’s company. I had planned to go for just one night but then it ended up being two nights and by complete chance, Andrew had the two days off. Since I didn’t have to work the entire time I was there, Andrew came with and we were able to enjoy a nice couple of days. We had a really delicious dinner, we went in the jacuzzi and went for a walk on the beach. It was a little random mid-week getaway, even if it did include a bit of work. This trip rounds out the 3 trips for # 57 on the 101 list. First there was Perth, then snowboarding in Threadbo and finally, Surfer’s Paradise.


# 96: Create 3 new goals each in 2009 and 2010.

Done. Check my updated list if you’re interested.

#103: Read 10 more books when I’m finished with the first 10

I have to say…?this goal paid off and now reading is a regular part of my life. Prior to this list, I wasn’t a big reader. Now I’ve read over 20 books since I’ve started and I’ll continue to read even without these goals to reach.

To finish of this post I’d just like to point out that this last week I also was able to cross off a few of those nagging wedding tasks that I was dreading. Not too much left to plan now!! How crazy is it to be able to say our wedding is NEXT MONTH!?

  1. Hi Elsja – I’m also an American expat soon-to-be-married in Sydney. I just wanted to let you know that I stumbled on your blog and am really enjoying reading about your experiences. It’s nice to know that others are having a similar experience!

  2. Wow, it really WAS cold if you were wearing that jacket! When we were there the weekend before, we actually went swimming in the ocean! Granted, it was probably too cold for that and we were a bit stupid, but still! Glad you had fun though 🙂
