  1. This is a really adorable idea and I love your 101 goals! I can't wait to see how you achieve them!


  2. #84.
    I've been meaning to do that one too.
    And the one about exercise.
    Especially after #84.

  3. Haha! I will be sure to keep you all posted when I complete each item. I have a feeling I'm going to look like a buffoon most of the time. But hopefully that will be entertaining!

  4. I just found your blog and love it! I've been meaning to write a 101 in 1001 list for ages! Yours is great! I look forward to reading more!

  5. We can help you with 74 and 75 :)


      You let us know when a visit works best for you. Given that I have no time off it will probably just be a weekend but we can drive up after work on Friday and stay till Sunday afternoon. YAAAAAAAAY!

  6. I read your blog everyday! Really :) Let's pick a weekend VERY soon!
