In True Quarterly Fashion….

Posted: October 6, 2011 in bucket list, DIY, Newlyweds

Today marks  exactly one quarter since I last posted my ‘Pre-Baby Bucket List.” Don’t get excited.. still no babies on the way, but for those of you on the edge of your seat….. I wanted to let you know I’m working on it.

However, my current baby feeling is …

Here’s a quick update!


  • Master the art of to-do lists:  I have one on my desk as we speak.  2 out of 9 complete
  • Stop multitasking (as we speak I am blogging, drinking coffee, listening to Real Housewives, working, and IM’ing) – currently: IM, work, listening to ANTM, blogging #fail
  • Consistently work out 3 times a week: YES a win!
  • Buy myself one major ticket item without thinking twice about the price tag: gonna give myself a win here. Instead I took this money and gave it to a person in need, so a win for me! Still gonna do this one day though!
  • Successfully keep one house plant alive: HA haven’t even purchased it yet
  • Learn to sew: does hemming pants count?

Personal Enrichment

  • Complete my master’s program (Spring 2013) – working on a master plan to finish up in December 2012!!
  • Get Mr. Q enrolled in an advanced degree/certification program – no dice
  • Launch (this dream will never die) – check out the coming soon page!!
  • Learn a foreign language – not even close
  • Find jobs that we don’t grouch about waking up to – half way there. Vince got a new gig!


  • Go on a hot air balloon ride – 😦
  • Go back to Europe – 😦
  • Visit New York City together – 😦
  • Throw a major house party!! – Complete and WHAT A SUCCESS!!!
  • Expand our group of “couple friends” – 😦
  • Take a girls trip with my mom – 😦
  • Take a set amount of money and hit the Roulette tables in Las Vegas. – 😦
  • Attend an NBA, NFL, & MLB game – trying to organize a Skins game for the end of the month #progress


  • Master couponing (nothing extreme, just the basics) – I barely even open the paper these days!
  • Figure out how to stick to our grocery/eating out budget – TERRIBLE’s gotten progressively worse!
  • Purchase a family car (Mr. Q has declared this to be a Jeep)
  • Have a 6-month emergency fund
  • Pay off current car (13 months to go) – 10 months to go!
  • Buy a house
  • Pay off our credit card debt (half way there!)

Orange – WIP
Red – haven’t touched

I had no idea how much progress we made prior to this blog post.

Funny that travel and money have the least amount of  progress.

Coming up… one year anniversary, midterms, Angie’s wedding, and more DIY! *woot woot*

  1. LMAO….@your current feelings towards having a baby! Hilarious.
