2015 To-Do List really liked my 2014 To-Do List that I had for last year, so, I decided I would do it again! I liked how I checked back every three months to see my progress, and how the final post summed up everything! It's neat to see how much I've accomplished.

This is what I've put together so far for 2015, but I'm not saying new things won't be added...that's definitely an open option!

#1. Every month, try one new idea found on Pinterest.
This can be anything: recipes, tips, crafts, etc....can't wait to see which 12 things I end up trying!

#2. Read these 9 books.
After last year's list, it's very apparent that I do have time to read more books for fun...I just have to make that time.  I do still want to continue reading for fun of course, but this year, I'm adding specific books to that category.  Here are the ones I have so far.

9 books to read if you love Friends
Commencement by J. Courtney Sullivan
The Love Affairs of Nathaniel P. by Adelle Waldman
No One Belongs Here More Than You by Miranda July
Orange is the New Black by Piper Kerman
Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay
Yes Please by Amy Poehler  (this site also recommended Bossypants by Tina Fet...I've read it and HIGHLY recommend it!)
Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin
Never Can Say Goodbye edited by Sari Botton
Adulting: How to Become a Grown-Up in 468 Easy(ish) Steps by Kelly Williams Brown

If you have any other book recommendations, send 'em my way!

#3. Watch five consecutive episodes of Doctor Who with Matt.
This one is not a mistake, haha. (I hope.)  Matt loves this show, but every time I try to watch it, I'm so lost.  Then, Matt tries to explain things to me, and I just can't wrap my head around ANY of it.  Most of the time, I either came into the episode late or just wasn't paying 100% attention.  Matt asked me to give him FIVE episodes to see if I would actually like the show.  As much as it might hurt my head at least to start, I'll give it a go!

#4. Find more ways to organize anything.
This is the OCD-ness in me kicking in.  I love for things to be organized, but I feel like everything is always done the same way. I'm hoping that with the help of Pinterest, and any ideas you all might have, that I can find some new ways to organize my massive amount of necklaces or various lengths that can't all fit in one jewelry box....or all of my scarves--what's the best way for you to organize them?? 

Like I mentioned earlier, I may add to this list as we get further into the year, but this is what I'm starting with!

Anything you're hoping to do this year???

2 book recommendations: Defending Jacob by William Landay (this is so good, but it is a murder mystery, so if you don't like that genre it might not be your cup of tea) and girls in white dresses by Jennifer close.

I just got into running in the late spring, and I cranked out 120 miles this past year. I goal this year is to double that and run 240 miles! I love that you call your to do list, that makes it seem resolution list!!

Hehe, I posted from Corey's account the first time, it's Nicole!!
