My turn! 101 in 1001

Several blogs I follow did this last year. It has taken me a year to decide to do it! I'm a stalker, it's ok. Today is January 2nd, but I'm going to say I started it yesterday, as that is when I hand-wrote some of it out. This should make my 1,001st day September 28th, 2013.
I'll get started- the 101 in 1001 is a to-do list of sorts. Definitely 7943182 times better than a New Year's Resolution. I am excited and nervous- which sounds really silly to me, but I want to do all these things and not have one left. I guess I better get ON IT!

**UPDATE: To see my original 101, click here. I have updated the goals because some were very lofty!**

4. Pay off the Truck  
5. Use a free night (or two) on my Marriott Rewards card

92. Re-decorate my blog (1/2/11)
96. Make a wreath
98. Go camping for more than one night - and possibly even enjoy myself?

101. Get a new tattoo
So, there you have it! This will be done, however in no order whatsoever. I'm excited to attempt to take pictures of me crossing off some of these things and blog about them. Maybe putting this list up here will help me complete number 37 at least?
If there is anything on this list that you have ideas to help me complete, please let me know. Also, if you happen to post one of these babies- please link to it in the comments section!
Some of these, you may notice, might also be hints for things that I can't necessarily do... and they may take action from someone else- namely D. hahaha That's not wrong, is it? It's just being nice by dropping explicit hints!

Because I like putting a picture on each post...
Here's a pretty pic of the park where we had to walk our dogs in ATL when we were there in November... it was a gorgeous little potty spot!

Now, if I start walking immediately, I may be able to cross off number 1 by February...



  1. The gift to a friend = me.
    Dinner party = us.
    Cards = once again us.
    Dog Treats = Chloe.
    Pedicure = me.
    Zumba = Once again me.
    Painting or repainting = love to.
    Girls night = me.
    Camping = us.

    and LOOOVE the McBaby idea!

  2. I forgot to put Camping just us 4 for more than a night. haha I want to enjoy it and see if we can do it on our own. We've done it before, but we sucked at it. I kinda want to actually camp as a mini vacation at some point- like not in TN.
    And McBaby- isn't that the best thing you've ever heard? We have the perfect last name- everyone else says "Baby Lastname" or a "Little Lastname" but we can make ours like a breakfast sandwich! hahahahahaha
    - Pedicure- you? You're going to give me a pedicure? Do you have a spa chair in your apartment? BC if so I. AM. THERE.

  3. I would like to be involved in this. So, you can count me in for Cedar Point please :)

  4. Cedar Point = ME - There's no if, vags, or butts about it. I am the Norther after all.
