January 2017 Bucket List

Well it's finally the last day of 2016. It's been a rough year for a lot of us so I'm really looking forward to January. On top of my 2017 goals, here are some of my bucket list items for January 2017:

  1. Go on a Friends-cation: My friends and I are leaving town during Inauguration weekend. I'm really excited to leave DC during a time where the city is sure to be congested and tensions will be high. 
  2. Clean up iPhone photos to make space: I have been so bad at cleaning up the photos on my phone but I want to start getting into the habit of it so I can be sure I'll always have space for new pictures.
  3. Go ice skating at the sculpture garden: This item was on an old bucket list and I still haven't gone! I want to be sure to do it before winter ends though.
  4. Bake french macarons: I baked macarons by scratch recently but they didn't turn out exactly the way I wanted them to. I want to perfect the recipe and bake amazing macarons (and maybe share the recipe here?)
  5. Start apartment hunting: While I love where I live now, I am looking for a bit of a change. Plus, Brian and I have been talking about moving in together and finding a place that would work for both of our lifestyles so the hunt should start in January!
Thanks for reading!


  1. We're going out of town the week of the inauguration too-- definitely looking forward to a little escape. Definitely share your macaron recipe-- I think they're on my list of things to try and bake at some point this year too.

  2. Good luck apartment hunting!! Are you going to be sharing your time on the blog? Always love a good apartment story. I'm wanting to clean out my phone, too. You know what, I keep talking about wanting to do one of these bucket lists so I'm just going to FREAKING DO IT NOW so I can't keep forgetting about it and putting it off, haha! Thanks for the inspiration ;) ;) MUCH LOVE!!
