101 in 1001

Date: March 10th, 2016  **update** realized that this list is now expired.  It ended on 02/14/16 and I should probably update it ;) It's fun to see all the things I thought I was going to do and all the things that I actually did accomplish in under 3 years. 

I found this idea off of another blog and thought it would be a great addition to my blog. I have always been very goal oriented and this is a way to have a list of goals to be completed in 2.74 years in a handy spot! I will cross things off as I complete them and hopefully reach all 101 by the end of the 1001 days (from my birthday because it will take a couple days to compile this list) which happens to be Valentines Day 2016!
