It’s been over a month since the last time I addressed the issue of my 25 by 25. It hasn’t fallen by the wayside.
I’ve just been…getting it done.
#6 – Learn how to make a pie crust from scratch
#18 – Visit at least one new restaurant in the Twin Cities every month
Truth: The Entertainment Book (we’ve officially pushed over the break-even mark!) and our need for cheap dates and adventures has really paid off. When we bought it, I had no idea that it would help with this part of the project as much as it has.
October: The Red Sea
#20 – Come up with some sort of skincare habit to replace my completely non-existent routine
I have not mastered this one by any means, but I will confess to doing some daily moisturizing. This December air has brought my face to a place that is so far beyond dry, I don’t even know how to deal. So when I’m blowing-out my hair, I do a bit of moisturizing. Because otherwise pressed powder just looks like a horror show.
All together now: Do Not Want.
My projects for next month: What I really want to work on is knocking off a couple of recipes from the cookbooks we received for our wedding. Even though I cooked a TON since our last check-in, using those books was something I failed epically at.
