    Love these Hope! I think Allen and I need an ice cream date on our jet as well. And I love the idea of a styled shoot for your anniversary. We’ve never done that and I would love to have some good pics of us. I’m hoping my sisters get to come visit us this year so I can show them all the new things to do here. Hope your 2019 is amazing girl!

    • misshopeelizabeth January 2, 2019 at 12:01 am

      Yes you guys do! The ice cream date is one of the things I’m most excited for. I can’t wait to do the styled beach shoot, I think you guys should do one too (and incorporate the beach and some of your favorite things)! Same to you lady!

  • Nicole January 2, 2019 at 10:32 pm

    I miss your YouTube videos! I have followed you for years and have always loved you! You are so sweet! Hope you have an awesome year! ❤

    • misshopeelizabeth January 3, 2019 at 7:26 pm

      I’ll be filming this weekend! The holiday rush wore me out at work. Definitely one of my goals to post more this year! You’re too sweet! Thank you so much for commenting!

  • Tif January 14, 2019 at 11:09 pm

    What a great way to goal set! I hope you hit every one of these!!!!


  • Lisa @ Midwest Glam January 21, 2019 at 4:15 am

    I love this idea! I might have to borrow your template and jot down my own 100 things. A few of these I had actually discussed with my husband. Like the water (I believe I said 6 cups… bold move).

    By the way, I watched a segment on Martha Stewart’s old show and learned how to fold a fitted sheet. I’m sure you can find it floating around YouTube.
