101 Things in 1001 Days

So first I was inspired by my friend Anna, who was inspired by her friend Emily, who was inspired by her friend Jo. Then, I found a website called Day Zero trying to get people to join the fun.

The Mission: Complete 101 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days.

The Criteria: Tasks must be specific with a result that is either measurable, or clearly defined. Tasks must also be realistic and stretching (ie. represent some amount of stretching on your part.)

  1. yay! I'm so excited for you.

    #21 -- you have room to freeze 30 meals? amazing.

    #23 -- we have an overabundance of squash. seriously tons. we didn't plant it, it just grew. so if you want some for baby food I'd be more than happy to drop some by your house

    #35 -- we have season tickets at Hale next year, you guys should double with us

    #38 -- I want to hear more about this

    #47&#55 -- my husband is a financial planner he'd be more than happy to help set you up with some life insurance & an IRA

    #82 I recommend Nordstrom, during the Anniversary Sale in late July/early August

    #89 I've done it a bunch of times, no stress, those guys are pros

    By the way, I'm adding some of these to my list. What a great list!!! (Oh and I do want to borrow your murder mystery game, I'll let you know when I figure out a date)

  2. I am SOOO contemplating doing this. What a great idea. I checked out the website, and there are so many other self-fulfilling things there, too! Thanks for sharing your list, you have inspired me!

  3. I have an absolutely kickin' spaghetti sauce recipe when you are ready! And I can give you easy hints on how to make your own baby food as well. Woohoo about getting the car paid off!
