101 in 1001

I turned 28 a couple of weeks ago and last year I had a new year’s resolution list/things I wanted to complete before I turned 28, but found out I was pregnant before New Year’s Eve and that meant that I had another list to work on—things to do before the babies arrive. While I was pregnant I really got into reading blogs, since I didn’t really have the energy to do much more than that. I found something called “101 in 1001” on several blogs. It’s a list of a 101 things that you want to do in 1001 days. It’s more manageable and realistic than a resolution list. The ones I looked at had things ranging from personal goals, fun trips to go on, things to do with the family, things to do for others, etc. I thought it’d be so fun to have a 101 list, so after the boys were born I came up with my own. I got so many great ideas from some of the blogs I looked at, if you want to see those lists you can go here, here, or here. I’ve already managed to cross off some of my list which really makes me happy. I’m not going to be unrealistic, if something comes up that makes it impossible to complete something on my list, I have a list of a few backups to replace it with so that way I’m still completing 101 things that I want/need to do.
