54. Organize all my digital photos

Last week, I backed up all the photos from my phone and organized them by subject. Those more than 6,500 photos are now organized. I still have a lot of photos from previous years to deal with, but I did make a good start on this thing.

93. Personal thing (code name: NU)

I wasn't sure when to consider this one complete, so it took me a while to decide to cross this off. I feel pretty happy about this being completed now, though. There might be some future progress on it, but the basic requirements in my head have definitely been met.

77. Make 2 vacation photobooks

I don't take a whole lot of vacations, so I wasn't sure what trip to use for my second photobook. I took a look at a bunch of my small trips and decided my recent trip to New York City had a lot of photos I liked and wanted to remember. I took the photos with my cell phone, so this was also an experiment to see how good those photos were for print (the verdict: not as good at my old digital camera, but okay).

I think it turned out pretty nice. There are a few changes now I wish I could make. But, overall, I am super happy with it.

18. Get 5 new Pawsport stamps

The San Antonio Build-a-Bear store was an Uber ride away from my hotel, so I just made it there and back between our board meeting and dinner one night to get stamp number 4.

I took Morgan Bear to Build-a-Bear on my way home today, and we got a pawsport stamp at the same store where he was born! This one was number 5!

It was a lot of fun making a point of visiting different stores. So far we have stamps from 9 different stores in 5 different states, including one from the one and only T-Rex Cafe in Disney Springs. It's been fun collecting them!

3. Read 5 books off BookCrossing TBR shelves

The Popsugar Reading Challenge asked for a book with a fruit or vegetable in the title. I have had Ella Minnow Pea by Mark Dunn on Mt. TBR for ages now! So it was great to have an excuse to read it. I finished it on the flight home from San Antonio this weekend.

Progress: 1 / 5

4. Read 5 books off general TBR shelves

The only romances I read are hockey ones. I have had Power Play on Mt. TBR for such a long time, and I needed something fun and light to tide me over during the off season. I finished it on my way to San Antonio this weekend.

Progress: 1 / 5

47. Clear 50 books off my TBR shelves

These books were also on my TBR shelves.

Progress: 2 / 50

94. Leave a 100% tip

I was hoping to have a good server at the Rainforest Cafe, but my "Jungle Guide" was awesome. He gave me lots of info about San Antonio in March, brought my check early because he remembered my saying I was flying out in a few hours, and gave me a cup so I could take the rest of my iced tea back with me (it was hot outside, so I was glad for the yummy drink during my walk back to the hotel).

So I paid with a credit card and then left cash for a little more than my meal. It was SUCH a great feeling. I wrote a little note on the receipt so that they knew it was intentional. I hope it made him smile.
