If I lived in England, I think I would eat scones every day. Not that I think all English people eat scones daily, but isn't that the picture you have of tea time? A nice teacup (not a mug like I use) with some Earl Grey, pinkies up, and talk of how smashing the scones are today....and then a visit from Mary Poppins. Ok, so maybe my idea of life in England isn't exactly realistic, but my love for scones sure is.
I made the Pioneer Woman's Maple Pecan Scones in an effort to satisfy my scone-craving and also help me out a little with my 101 in 1001 list (a list of 101 things I hope to accomplish within 1001 days). They were delish. Just try not to think about the 2 sticks of butter that go into 8 scones. Don't do the math. It's a lot of butter per slice and you are much better off just not thinking about it!
I have been slowly progressing with my 101 in 1001 list since starting it on February 15. Here's some of the progress I've made - first the fully completed goals:
#15: Grow blog to 50 followers. Thanks everyone who has followed!
#19: Have blog visitors from all 50 states.
#20: Have blog visitors from 50 countries. (Jackson loves to look at the map to see where all these visitors are coming from!)
#46: Purge my clothes.
#50: Move linens to underbed box.
#56: Get back on track with couponing. (You can read about my couponing method here).
And now for the partially completed goals:
#30: Watch the complete Star Wars series with Jackson - I have watched 1/6 - this one is a real labor of love for me, folks! I know soooo many people love Star Wars, but I just cannot get into it!
#35: Make at least 40 of the recipes from the Pioneer Woman's Cookbook - I have made 7/40.
#41: Read 10 acclaimed books I haven't already read - I have read 1/10: Schindler's List.
#89: Have 2 more of my projects featured on other blogs - 1/2 - my Changeable Wreath was featured on The Frugal Girls!
There are other goals I am working on, but they are the more ongoing ones that will be continual throughout the 1001 days - like making sure the leftovers get eaten, exercising on a more regular basis, and making my daily devotions with the Lord a priority.
What goals are you working on?
