54. Take as many pictures of things on my list as possible

I wanted to take a picture of me taking a picture...but alas, I only have 1 camera. So, what's a close 2nd to that? Got you it: Brittney Spears and the paparazzi.

Note to whoever took this picture: please do not sue me. I am a nobody with a nobody blog with no money.

Anyway. I know I'm checking this one off a little premature. I figure if I've kept up with the blog this long, I'll see it to completion. I am one of those people who finds it hard to quit something once I start it. And this makes 25 things that I've checked off my list. Not bad for it being the 145th day of the 1001.

59. Buy and wear a new dress

Here's the new dress and me wearing it. I have not been much of a dress wearer in years past, but I think I may change that. There's just something fun about wearing a new dress (brownie points for those of you who also knew that the boots are 64. on my list).

But even better than the dress is the occasion I had to wear it. Mother's Day and my sister's Carolina Law Graduation. Congratulations to Becky. I hope she'll always be just my sister...never my lawyer.

70. Try a new cocktail

Matt took me to see Bill Cosby last Sunday. We went to Ri Ra's afterward and got some drinks; this is one of them. My 1st was a White Russian. I've always wanted to try one, so I did. It was good, but I like plain Bailey's on the rocks better. I then wanted to try a colorful drink. I told the bartender what I like and he made this one. Since I'm not sure who reads this blog, I can't tell you the name...way too embarrassing. And this drink doesn't really count anyway, since the bartender made it up and it's not something I can ask for at any other bar. But, the White Russian counts, so I'm checking this one off.

I probably shouldn't check this one off just to give me an excuse to try more drinks since I tend to get in drink ruts (margarita on the rocks, sugar rimmed, please). So, please forget that I wrote this. You will probably continue to see 70. throughout the 1001 days.
