Kassi’s 20 Wishes Progress – Feb. 2013

Ok  so I may or may not have missed posting a link up and progress update for January… I’ve been a little distracted, so I’m sure you’ll understand. 🙂 Anyway, here’s my progress for the last month and a half. Kayli will post hers on Monday and the link up for you to share YOUR progress thus far will be on Tuesday.

{Progress updates from my last check in are this color and in italics. Progress updates for this month are red and in italics.}
FYI: Don’t be discouraged if you haven’t had much progress. It’s only February! Just be sure to attack next month with gusto, yes? 😉

Until then if you haven’t linked up with us yet, feel free to share your list here and then link up with us next month with your progress! 😉 Oh, and here’s a button for you!

Kassi’s Twenty Wishes List for 2013

1. Read 50 books, just for fun, that I WANT to read. {So far I’m five into my 50 and well on track to read 50 before the end of the year.}

2013 Reading Challenge

2013 Reading Challenge
Kassi has
read 5 books toward her goal of 50 books.


2. Take a trip up Mount Graham. (I’ve lived here a year now, think it’s time to start checking out the local sites!)

3. Make a scrapbook of my trip to Australia. (I’ve had the photos since um… 2003…. oops….)

4. Participate in a Color Run! {My sister and sisters in law ran with me in the Tempe Color Run in January. I still plan to do a whole post, but again, waiting on the photos from the sister in law that took her camera…. haha! Until then, here’s an Instagram of our team after the run!!!}

5. Host a girlfriends’ dinner party in my home. Invites, menus, the whole she-bang!

6. Build my photography portfolio to include 10 different sessions. {I still have 7 different sessions! You can see them here. BUT I also have two scheduled in the next few weeks!!}

7. Make a photography website and FB page with those 10 sessions. {Facebook page is done!!! Won’t you be a doll and like Kassi Mortensen Photography?!? Oh, and check out my sweet new logo c/o Royal Daughter Designs while you’re there. 😉}

8. Attend an AZ blogger event.

9. Makeover my master bedroom.

10. Visit a winery and do a wine tasting.

11. Plant rose bushes in my backyard.

12. Take a 2 year anniversary trip just me and the hubs.

13. Private wish. (This is something I REALLY, really, REALLY wish for, so I don’t want to jinx it… When it does happen I’ll share what it is.) 😉

14. Makeover our guest bathroom.

15. Plant an upside down Mulberry tree somewhere at my house.

16. See George Strait in concert for his final tour. {We have tickets!!! Kayli, the hubs and I will be seeing George in April!!!}

17. Take a photography class or work shop. {I just purchased an online digital photography certification class via Groupon!!!}

18. Download a Book of Mormon reading app of some sort and read at least the first half! {I downloaded Book of Mormon Chapter Tap, it’s an app for $0.99 that lets you check of each chapter as you read through. So far I’m well ahead of schedule!}

19. Visit Build a Bear and actually build a bear.

20. Host a holiday for my family including a traditional dinner.

So there you have it! My 20 Wishes progress as of February 2013! Don’t forget we hope to mark all these wishes off by next December!
