16. Visit the Cloisters
Ryan and I went on a day date to the Cloisters and a local coffee shop on a rainy day in March. It's no MET, but fun that it's a part of the MET and since I go running around it all the time (well, all the time except for Dec-Feb) it was fun to see the inside. I have a feeling it may be an annual rainy day neighborhood date.
29. Eat at Chelsea Market
We met up with some friends from Boston in January and I had the most delicious meal from Num Pang. I was even gluten/dairy free that month and it was so, so good. I can't wait to go back and get more, try more food, and check out the antique store there as well.
45. Gluten/Dairy free for one month
I tackled this goal in January and it was a fun challenge. I'm not one for fad diets and although I'm not certain we all need to be gluten/dairy free I do think Americans eat much more processed food than necessary and this goal was a nice challenge to eat more real food and see if my body felt better eliminating these ingredients for a month. It felt good! And I really didn't crave cheese or dairy through the month. It was also a great way to challenge me to find new favorite recipes, fast, budget friendly recipes to add to our rotation.
52. Join a gym
The goal when moving to the city was to finally get a gym membership, to motivate me to work out more consistently. I also really wanted to take group fitness classes more. I loved the classes I took at BYU, especially when Ryan was a student and I had just graduated. But alas, the Y is forever away here so Brittany (our next door neighbor, running buddy and all-around amazing mom) and I joined the Planet Fitness just a few blocks away and it's just what I needed to help me consistently work out through the winter.
81. Buy a couch
We did it! We first were looking at couches, but a little sectional caught our eye and there was no looking back. It's actually the same as my brother/sister in law, and we didn't even plan it. We've got the darker color and they've got the lighter. President's day sales for the win!
