Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

While recently cleaning I came across an older bracelet of mine.
Seriously must be a childhood bracelet.
It’s in good shape & I really like it!
Luckily for me I still have small wrists.

I think that I had come across it before but hadn’t thought much of it.
But this time, I put it on my wrist & haven’t taken it off since!

JadedForeverFinally :) -

I was finally able to wear that vintage-like lace jacket that I bought & fell in love with!
And yes, I’m still in love with it! :)

I’m hoping to wear it more often now!

This is not my jacket but it is the closest thing I could find to it!

I tried to dress vintage for a wedding that I went to!
I was really happy with my outfit, it was kinda out of my comfort zone!
Dressy blouse, vintage flowery skirt, 3 pearl bracelets, vintage locket necklace, textured tights, really cute shoes!

I got 2 compliments on my locket necklace!

And 2 songs that I thought I’d share, enjoy!

JadedForeverAntique Swap Meet -

Yeah, I went!
I can’t resist vintage!
I seriously have a problem! J/K

I may have bought some vintage jewelry!
I only bought 3 things, I didn’t spend that much $!
And I resisted one of the things I wanted because I thought she wanted too much $, even though I loved it!
Technically I kinda went back to buy it but she put it away already…

JadedForeverWhat to wear? -

And why do I wait until the last minute?
I don’t think they want to see me in jeans, a tank-top & sandals at their wedding! (LOL)

I’ll be in my closet if anybody needs me!

JadedForeverI'm Just So Happy -

Remember the lace jacket that I bought from the Goodwill that I was so in love with?
And everybody at the Goodwill loved it too!
It fits me, I am just so happy I could cry!
It was meant to be mine!

I still need to try on the skirt that goes with it.
It was a two-piece set.

JadedForeverHalf-way There -

I didn’t wear a t-shirt today! (LOL)

But I did wear my jeans with a dressy black polka-dot shirt!
It fits loose but it was a thrift store find!

I wore 3 pearl bracelets & a large silver cameo ring!

And I did my hair & wore a new flower headband!
I’m proud of myself for wearing it, it’s quite bold & so stinkin’ adorable!
It takes confidence to wear a bold headband with a large flower!

Enjoy the song!

JadedForeverHmm -

So not working on this goal.

I am doing well at buying clothing for this goal!
But every time I go to get ready I just throw on jeans & a tank top!

I need to take the time to put some actual outfits together so I will actually wear something else other than my jeans & a t-shirt!

But I do an excellent job with my jewelry, hats, etc!

A song to go with my entry, enjoy!

JadedForeverAntique Swap Meet -

I may have accidentally bought something on Sunday!
Catch me I’m feeling a little faint! (LOL)

I think it has a similar look to a very small fainting couch, mine doesn’t have a back-rest on it.

I have no where perfect to put it right now, but it’s so cute!
And it was so inexpensive!

And I guess I can say this is dressing my house up in vintage!

Edit. Technically it might be a divan, I’m calling it my fainting couch anyway!
It just sounds better! 2 years ago

JadedForeverI'm In Love -

with a jacket!

I found a beautiful 2 piece Cream colored Lace-type jacket & skirt set with tags on it at the Thrift store!

As soon as I saw it I knew that I loved it!
Someone else loved it too, she saw me put it in my cart & commented on how beautiful it was & how sexy lace is!
I think she was hoping I would put it back, no way I was already in love with the jacket!

I didn’t find anything else in the Thrift store that day but that one special find made me happy!

And when I went to pay the cashier also complimented how beautiful it was & asked if I was going somewhere special or if it was a gift!

I need to take it to the dry-cleaner & it better fit or I’ll probably cry.

Picture is from the Internet, not mine.
This is not the jacket but the closest thing I could find, it’s hard to explain what it looks like!
It’s not just lace but looks like crochet/knit & lace? 2 years ago

JadedForeverI Found Gold -

OK, it’s a gold sleeveless shirt, but it’s still gold!

I found it at the Thrift store!
I still have to get it washed, so I hope that it actually fits me!

And I have good taste!
I got a compliment on the shirt as I was waiting in line!
It has a little bit of a vintage look to it, that’s why I like it!

JadedForeverI'm Charming -

Today I wore my gold colored charm bracelet with red hearts & other charms!
And my large Swarovski crystal necklace with 4 red hearts, which I adore!

The other day I wore my gold large ruby heart, which I also LOVE!

JadedForeverA Steal of a Deal -

I have been holding onto this find!
And now I deserve to wear it!
Since I finally got my dental work done!

After Christmas I bought a faux leather faux shearling soft brown color jacket!
It was originally $89.00, imagine my surprise when I scan it it up at, wait for it $8.99!

I had wanted a jacket similar to it & was waiting for the right jacket & the right price & there it was just for me!

This might be one of my best deal’s yet!

JadedForeverMe & My Cameos -

Today I wore a recently purchased $5.00 cameo bracelet!
This could become a favorite of mine!
It fits really good on my wrist & it’s really pretty!

I also wore my green cameo cocktail ring!
I LOVE it!

Picture is from the Internet, not mine.
I couldn’t find a picture that looked anything like my bracelet.

JadedForeverOn Christmas Eve -

I wore my newly bought vintage flower skirt!
I LOVE it!

I asked him what he thought about it.
He said “It looks like something my Grandma would wear.”
I said “Thanks!”
I took that as a compliment, it is vintage after all!

The skirt has these wonderful pink & red flowers with green leaves & stems that appear to jump off the fabric! (Soft & puffy)

I bought it from the Goodwill! 2 years ago

JadedForeverFascinating -

Wearing my black feather fascinator with the netting on it today!
Now if I could just get it to stop falling off, I’ve pinned it now!

Wearing my baby blue cameo with a woman & child, it’s one of my favorites!

This is not me. 3 years ago

JadedForeverCameos -

I have a real love for cameos!

Today I wore one of my favorite cameos for the first time!
