101 in 1,001

Thursday, October 25, 2018

Hey friends! How is your week going? Ours has been a little off, since Hadley came down with a yucky cold at the beginning of the week, then I caught it, and I think Carrington might be coming down with it now. It's never fun to be under the weather, but I'm just hoping this means that we'll all be healthy and good-to-go for Halloween week next week! My priority is that the girls get to enjoy themselves, participate in school parties and activities, and of course go trick-or-treating. 

One of the bloggers I love to follow along with, Zelle at A Southern Style Blog, recently posted a 101 in 1,001 list outlining 101 goals for the next 1,001 days and I thought it was a fun way to write down all of the things that I'd love to accomplish in various areas of life within the next few years. So I borrowed her template and made my own! Yes, several of them are lofty goals (I mean... write a book? And look at my travel list -- I'll have to win the lottery, lol!), but I figured might as well get it all down. You know how I love lists! ;) 

I would love to see your own 101 in 1,001. If you make one, be sure to tag me in it (or message me to let me know!). I'm always inspired by other people's aspirations! xo

  1. I need to do this for myself. I love your list. So many great things on here. I definitely think you should try skiing for the first time. I have always wanted to host an Ugly Christmas Sweater party, but we usually go to one each year.

    1. Yes, I'd love to see yours! I haven't been to an ugly sweater party in SO long. I should host one this year or next!

  2. Omg we have so many similar goals! Love it. Definitely need to get on doing something like this. It would be so fun to make a lofty list and then put it away, come back to it years later, and see what was accomplished kind of on it's own or more effortlessly. Just to see what came to be. Meanwhile, "write a book" has been on my to-do list for the last twenty years so you can see how "effortless" that's been for me ;)

    1. Yes!! Make one -- I'd love to see it! Write a book has been on my list for about just as long. Let's make it happen. :) :)
