#11 Participate in a charity walk/run/event and more!

This weekend I was able to participate in a charity walk for Crohn’s and Colitis. If you missed the previous memo I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease this past April. To be entirely honest, when I added this list item I was thinking I would participate in something for cancer or AIDS research, not for my own disease since it’s not life-threatening. The opportunity was too perfect to pass up though, being that the walk was taking place relatively near my home and at a time I was available. However it was only a meer 2.5 mile walk, a cinch for me and really I feel like I didn’t get the full effect on this one. So while technically yes, I did complete this item, I’m hoping I will be able to participate in another charity event before the end of summer. Anyway if your interested in finding out more about Crohn’s and Colitis walks near you check out this website: http://online.ccfa.org

Another accomplishment I made over the weekend was to complete #24 Pick an offical summer song. What song did I pick as my anthem for summer? Titanium by David Guetta feat. Sia. Normally I try to stay away from any of Guetta’s cookie cutter pop music, but Sia’s voice is truly something magical. And I haven’t been able to get the song out of my head since yesterday, it’s just that addicting. I also think the lyric’s have a good message behind them, staying strong even when people are criticizing you. Yes, it’s not the deepest song out there, but at least she’s singing about something other than sex, drugs, and partying, which seems to be the norm of songs nowadays.

So overall I’d say this weekend was a complete and utter success, not only did I complete some list items, I also got to just splash around in the pool with friends and soak up the sun. Basically it was the perfect summer weekend. And once again I would like to say thanks to all of you who have read, commented, and supported my blog so far, you guys are so fantastically fabulous!

May the summer be ever in your favor,


#47 Paint fingernails each a different colour

I feel like I shouldn’t even bother writing this post. I mean this is one of the simpler, less exciting list items and there is only so much I can say about my experience painting my fingernails different colours. I suppose it was actually kind of heinous, finding ten different colours and then painting my nails, so as not to make them look like a two-year old did them. But besides that there’s not much to say. It was something to fill idle time and I’d say it did its job well – eating out a good half hour of my day. So now my nails are a disco ball of color, ranging from pale baby blue, to gold, to purple sparkles. Entertaining to look at while typing, that’s for sure. Welp there you have it – #47 completed, ready to be crossed off and done with for good.

But wait – there’s more! As you know #24 on my list is to pick an offical summer song. An anthem for the dog days, something that makes me want to get up and dance and just let the world keep turning. I need to pick a song that is perfect for this sunny, bright season. But with all the music out there, its hard not to feel like this is a moot journey and I will never be able to find a song that fits the essence of summer in such perfect harmony. So that’s where you come in. Comment below or contact me somehow with YOUR summer theme song. Hopefully your ideas will give me the encouragement I need to find the absolute best summer song. So go out and find them for me! I’ll just be waiting here for that out-of-this-world sound I know is coming my way.

May the summer be ever in you favor,
