A Big Year

So, not to freak you out, but... we're already a week into 2013! Say what?!
This is shaping up to be a big year in the life of this plucky picaroon.
A few projects on the 2013 docket thus far include:

{::}The Dress Dare
"I vow to wear dresses everyday for a year."​​​ A Facebook status which inspired a blog post which inspired a dare -- the dress dare. For an entire year -365 days- we vow to wear dresses. To work. To workout. To bed. All day, everyday. Will we make it? What changes can a year bring? Can wearing dresses impact a girl's life? For better or for worse? We can't wait to find out!
Check out thedressdare.com to learn more about our 2013 life project!! 

{::} 25 in 25
A great little list inspired by a blog post / link-up in which I plan to ride an elephant, get my first wax, sew something, and much more! The clock is ticking. May 20th gets closer and closer with each passing day. Speaking of, it's time to check #8 off the list. →    8. Begin The Dress Dare.

{::} Train for a Marathon
Hi. You may not be aware of this but I hate running. Hard. But this year, being a year of change and chance and rebirth, a few girlfriends and I sort of decided to train for a marathon. I'm not at a place that I'm 100% committed to registering for a race just yet, but I am committed to the training and if that doesn't change in a couple months' time, I do believe I may just have to sign up. And pay. To run. #weird

So... this is a new adventure in adulthood for me. At the present moment, I have no full-time job lined up and I'm [gasp] okay with it? Although this is the farthest I've been from a paycheck since I was 16, I feel more on track with my future and a career than ever before. Does that make any sense? Eh. I guess we'll find out together.

{::}Living at the Beach

For the next several months, I'm living out a dream come true. How stinking cool that this is the view from my back porch?? There is some potential that this could end in disaster but.... I don't think so. :)

I think that's it for now, piquettes. Whew. This year has barely started and we're already steeped in goals and projects and hopes and plans and dreams. Can you imagine anything sweeter than the eternal optimism and energy of youth? 

Sarah :: Your Plucky Picaroon

Sarah :: Plucky in Love

Sarah, aka "Plucky", blogs on the reg, unless she's on vacation or there's a Pretty Little Liars marathon or she's mulling over the implications of the phrase "on fleek." She can't live without iced coffee, a portable phone charger, or equal pay. Say hello!


  1. I am so excited about your warm weather beach going! Which beach did you move to? My best friend is living on Palm Island, SC for the summer and all her glorious sand dollar-filled, palm tree-lined photos are killing me! I can't wait to get down and visit her!

  2. YOU'RE TRAINING FOR A MARATHON!???! Which one?? I'm doing my first full this year too! This is SO EXCITING! Also, I think I need a 25 before 25.. that way I'll have a year and a half to finish it. One of them should be "Visit SC for beach time with my BBFF" ;)

  3. Beautiful view! Happy 2013 to you :) - Alexandra
