101 in 1001

*It's been a while since I have done a "101 in 1001" update...I updated it this weekend so I think it's all up to date. Honestly I am not doing well...good thing it's not over yet. Ha! 




101 in 1001

I have been thinking about creating a "101 in 1001" list for awhile now. It's 101 goals for myself to be completed in 1001 days (that's about 2.75 years). This was challenging, because our lives are going to drastically change in the next few months and years. We will be adding identical twin boys a baby boy to our family, Mark will complete Chiropractic School, and I will making the transition to a SAHM (stay at home mom), to name a few! For this reason, I tried to set realistic goals for myself. Some of these I will accomplish, and some will show that I'm very human! Worth noting: some of my goals are borrowed from Ashley (she did a great job!). Go look at her blog to see what her list is. I really appreciate the idea!
