101 in 1001 | Update

I'm very late on this train, but I figured better late than never right?

to travel and beyond

6.Successfully open a bottle of champagne {August 2016}
I was able to accomplish this while we were in Mexico for our Honeymoon. I've of course drank champagne, but never opened a bottle myself.

15.Invest in a classic handbag {July 2016}
I finally got my dream handbag this past summer from my amazing little sister. I can add Louis Vuitton to my collection of handbags, of course nobody as glamorous as him though!

27.Get a family portrait done {Wedding Photos, July 16th, 2016}
This was completed during the wedding of course! Got some with my family and my new family so that was a win-win!

33.Get married!! {July 16th, 2016}
Just a small thing that I did this past summer, lol! I can officially cross this sucker off my list!

35.Move to a new city {Houston!! July 2016}
As of July 18th, 2016 I was officially a Texan, but it became even more real when I gave up my IL drivers license and got a Texas license.

38.Find a full-time job {Baylor Dermatology, September 2016}
This took a little bit more time than I anticipated, but this opportunity was so perfect and came at the perfect time. I absolutely am thrilled to be a part of such a great workplace!

59.Go to a Houston Texans game {September 11th, 2016}
The home opener game this year was against my Chicago Bears and so we definitely knew we had to go to this game. Being my first (and hopefully no last) Texans game, it was such a fun time and I couldn't have asked for a better game to attend.

83.Travel to a new country {Mexico-August 2016}
I was finally able to do this with our honeymoon to Mexico in August. It was such a blast and I couldn't have dreamt up a better honeymoon!
