cornflake dreams.: 11 in 11 - my Charleston to-do list.

11 in 11 - my Charleston to-do list.

Now that I have a part-time work schedule, I have more free time to do the things that I have always wanted to do. And to keep me from wasting all of my time watching The Real Housewives of Orange County and all things Bravo, I decided to make a list. Here are eleven things that I want to do in the next eleven months (yahh accountability!)

1. Bike over the Ravenel Bridge. if you have visited Charleston then chances are you know the huge white bridge I am talking about. It has a dedicated biking/walking path and I'd love to ride from our place downtown, across the bridge and back. (update: I didn't bike, because I'm pregnant but I walked over the bridge.)
2. Bake bread. I'd love to make my own sourdough, pretzel rolls, and ciabatta bread from scratch.
3. Learn how to drive again. Ugh. After over 7 years of not driving I am not thrilled to jump into the drivers seat again, but I know it's something I need to get over and learn again. (update: I drove home from the grocery store -- a whole 15 minutes without wrecking our car.)
4. Take a class on Skillshare and learn something new. (update: I took the class Interior Styling: Style Your Space like a Pro.)
5. Finish a Pinterest DIY. I am so terrible at DIY's that I deleted my DIY board a long time ago. It's time to try a project! 
6. Master a difficult yoga pose.
7. Get on a boat! One of my favorite parts about my trip to the Bahamas was spending the day on a boat, and since I live near the ocean I neeeeed to make my way onto a boat before the end of the summer. (update: I took a boat ride out to Fort Sumter and saw dolphins on the way back!)
8. Try a water aerobics class.
9. Read at least 6 books. (update: done! and then some.)
10. Learn how to use our paparazzi camera. (update: over the past few months I've been using our camera to take "fancier" photos for this blog.)
11. Make a photo book of our adventures in Charleston. (update: my photo book is in progress and about half way done!)

Do you have any new goals or to-do's?
xo,
jillian

  4. This is so great - I need to add a few of these to my list of to-do's...but mostly it's learning how to ride a bike - so sad but true..I don't know how to do it!!

  6. There's also the Cooper River Bridge Run that you should consider adding to this list! Don't worry, you don't have to be a runner (: its an amazing experience.

  8. I absolutely adore this idea! I've actually been making a list of things in SF I want to do, including a visit to a cider bar, an adventure to Muir Woods and a staycation on the water!

  9. You know I always love recommending a good book and am more than free to (attempt) to teach you to drive again - you can pay me in wine ;) I say the further from downtown you go to practice, the better. Downtown is a driving nightmare ha but I KNOW you can master it!

  10. I tried a water aerobics class a few weeks ago and it was actually pretty great. Also, I love making my own bread:) Great list, sweetie. xoxo

  12. GREAT list Jillian! I need to work on the crow also...man, I need to check this off my yearly bucket list. Bravo is addicting, but not in such a good way haha I am working on a little online shop and my goal is to get it up and running by the end of August. I keep pushing the d/l back...little Miss Marli is such a great distraction ya know?!?! Have a beautiful day lovely!

  14. Wonderful list, part time schedule would be perfect :) Ugh, I don't blame you on the driving thing, after 7 years, whew!

  17. I see people running over the bridge and don't know how they can do it! Biking it would be fun though! Good luck with the driving thing, that would be really weird to get back into after so long!

  18. Charleston is a perfect place to use your fancy paparazzi camera!!! We should do a blogger booze cruise for your boating experience! ;)

  19. I love lists like this that I probably have too many of them going... a 30 before 30 (which I'm giving myself to the end of the calendar year to finish up, since I just passed that 30 point, ha!) as well as a list of things to do before my husband finishes his residency next June and we move away from our current city. I think this is a great way to get around to actually doing the stuff you always say "I should" about, and to make better and more constructive use of free time! Love your biking and photo book ideas, and I've never heard of Skillshare but am intrigued!

  20. Yes you definitely need to learn how to drive! Unfortunately everywhere you need to go is on wheels! My co workers were talking about baking sour dough bread and how you have to have a "mother"? I have no clue what they were talking about it but I guess you have to get it from California. Well if you ever end up baking some I'd love to try it! Life as I know it

  21. Love all of this - especially the baking bread!!

  22. I don't have a list of goals.
    But, that Skillshare looks interesting.
    How much is it monthly?
