Goal 100. Do a Samaritan's Purse Shoebox

I love Christmas! For some reason I have always loved everything about christmas and winter. Maybe it's because I grew up in an area that rarely had snow, so I always loved the idea of snowy days inside drinking hot chocolate by the fire. Or the decorations. Or the music. Or the gifts. I love it all!

I have been planning for Christmas for a little while already, including writing wish lists for Prince Charming and I, developing my gifts-to-give plan, and planning my decorations. I have been looking at Pinterest a lot!

But one of my favourite activities that usually marks the beginning of christmas is filling a shoebox with gifts for an anonymous underprivileged child. I support Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child, by filling a shoebox that will be given out as a christmas present to one of these children. Usually charity just means writing a cheque or sending in some used food or clothes. But this charity event is actually really fun!

Goal 46. 10 minutes to drop-dead gorgeous

The title of this post makes me laugh. I am currently wearing exercise pants and a ripped old t-shirt, my hair is twisted up into whatever makes it stay and I have no make-up on. And now I am going to start talking about being "drop-dead gorgeous"?! But there in lies the trick of this goal.

Recently I got a job and had to define what being "drop-dead gorgeous" meant to me and have been experimenting with trying to actually look good, while sleeping in.
