101 in 1001

My friend Holly over at Snapshots posted about a really cool sounding project called '101 in 1001'. You basically make 101 goals that you want to accomplish over 1001 days.  I thought this would be a great way to accomplish some goals and also something that would be fun to track and tell you about.

I haven't read your goals yet, but I wanted to say that I'm SOOOO excited that you decided to join in on 101 in 1001! HOW EXCITING!! :)

This is a WONDERFUL list!! You're a brave girl for putting a bikini wax on here - I've never had one nor do I think I ever could! I love the accessories goals that you made - I definitely need to start incorporating more jewelry into my wardrobe. I'm so excited to hear about the 150 books you read - I've added quite a few to my list that you've recommended and look forward to adding more. If you've never been to ND, that could be a state to visit. ;)

Love the goals. Feel a little overwhelmed just reading them. Good luck!

Also, you forgot "make a baby."

I really like your list. It makes me feel inspired to set some new goals of my own! We'll see...

What an awesome idea, and list! You've got me daydreaming about Grand Goals for myself. If you do even a third of them, you'll have much to be proud of.

Good on you!
