  1. i love that idea! ps i looked into getting points through insurance for working out and doing household chores...amazing! i'll be ready for that gift card in no time! thanks for the tip. :)

  2. I started doing this a few years ago and love it! So much easier I find than new years resolution. Good luck with your list.

  3. hmmm i like this... perhaps i shall come up with 101 goals.. =) thanks for the inspiration! =)

  4. Good luck on number 3!! If I were to make that a goal, it would have to be to stay under 7 for at least a year...I am always right on that line.

    Do you like that you have 1001 days? It's good that you have plenty of time to get it done, but for me that would be dangerous. I procrastinate when it comes to doing things for me. I think I'd get to 30 more days with more than 30 things to do. Maybe that means this list would be a good things for me to do.


I love comments! Thanks for leaving me one! I read each and everyone one! xoxo Jenny Free
