101 Goals in 1001 Days

If you're popping over to my blog, you may want to know that this has nothing to do with scrapbooking or crafting..nothing at all. lol

A wonderful friend who works as a teacher at the center I work at decided to do this and she asked a group of us if we'd like to be a part of it. I think it is a super cool idea and a great way to do things you've wanted to but always seem to put off due to one thing or another. Each one of our lists are different and it's fun and interesting to look thru others list. I got a few ideas from some of my friends list..because do you know how hard it is to come up with 101 goals? It's really not that easy.

So this is just my own personal post to help myself stay on task. I'll be coming back and marking off goals as I go. If you're wondering how long 1001 days is..I think she told me it's about 3 years. I've already marked off a few!! Would love to do the Wine Tasting tour that some of the others are doing in a couple weeks..but I won't be around for it. :( so I'll have them drink a glass for me anyway ;)

A BIG thanks to her..she know who she is...for thinking of something so fun to do for our group of friends.

  2. What fun to read your list!! February 26, 2014 seems so far away, but with 101 things to complete by then, it will surprise us all when that final day arrives!!
