101 In 1001

Posted by Jaydubbs On October - 9 - 2009

Jess and I recently got the idea from a blog we found to create a list of 101 goals that we want to tackle in the span of 1001 days. We actually started this project on August 7th, but I’m just now getting a chance to write about it.101 in 1001 button

Some of the goals are very little, simple things that we can knock out in the next week or so. Some are very grand and will take time, discipline, and determination to achieve. But these are the things that we both decided on to succeed in together. And some are very special to us. Our end date is May 4th, 2012, so we’ll see how many we accomplish by then! You’ll continue to see postings as we go when we mark them off as done.

Check out our list on the jump, and remember- these are not in any specific order at all. And we don’t plan on completing them in this order.
