101 in 1001 days process update

It's been 3.5 months since starting my newest 101 things in 1001 days list and I've been so happy that I've already crossed off 6 items and made a good start on a 7th, ahhh I can't believe it, I'm actually achieving something - woo hoo!!

#15 - Buy a New Car (13/06/15)

Sadly my poor little Stewie had seen better days and was needing an upgrade. After nearly colliding with a bus on the motorway at 100km due to old brake pads, the time had well and truly come.

As much as I loved Stewie (he was my first car and all) I'm absolutely smitten with Marcy. She slick, red, aircon, comfy cars, bluetooth, I feel like I've hit the jackpot. Thank goodness for end of financial year specials and doing some research we got her at a great bargain price.

#26 - Go to Supernova (20/06/15)

We didn't go last year, so we made sure we got there this year. We are so geeky and just love events like this, it's where all lovers of cartoons, fantasy, comics can join forces and indulge in all things awesome. 

#37 - Make a Death Star Cake (23/05/15)

I love a good challenge and my brother-in-law likes to see what I can come up with. So this year for his 26th birthday he asked if I could recreate the infamous Death Star in cake form (last year he asked for Zelda). Challenge Accepted!!! I was quite happy with the end result and it was made even more fun when we presented him with the cake while playing the Star Wars Death March theme. 

#46 - Take my nephew (6) on a city adventure (3/7/15)

I love hanging out with my nephew, you get to act crazy and silly and no one cares. These school holidays I volunteered to help out my sister-in-law while she worked and took my oldest nephew (6) out on a city adventure. We had the most fun, we went to the Australian Musuem, St Mary's Cathedral, Hype Park and of course I got tricked (not really) into buying ice-cream. Next school holidays he wants to go bowling. 

#51 - Dress up for Disney On Ice (11/07/15)
#66 - Make a Snow White Outfit (11/07/15)

I was able to combined these two into one event, which was super fun. Every year my mum and I go and watch Disney on Ice but as my nephew and niece have gotten older we've now been bringing them along for the ride. This year my niece (3) was old enough to bring along so of course (no convincing necessary) I had to dress up. My nephew wasn't at all keen to join in on the dressing up but Little One was up for it, wearing her beautiful Elsa dress while I using clothes from my wardrobe dressed up as Snow White. I think this is going to become a new tradition every year now. 

I'm also making great process on #21 Read 15 books - I'm a slow reader but I've already powered through 4 books so far in only 3 months and I'm nearly finished a 5th, I'm quite shocked but also impressed. 

There is such a great feeling attached to crossing items off the list but I'm really enjoying the process this time so much more than last time. I want to do these things instead of feeling like I have to.
