101 Things in 1001 Days

I have two very dear friends that have compiled similar lists.  One of them did hers in 2009 and the other one is just now starting her list.  I was inspired, so I started creating my own list.  Some of these were my own ideas and some were ideas that I saw on other peoples list.  I am a person who LOVES to mark things off a list, so we'll see how it goes.  I wanted to get started right away, but I wasn't finished with my list... I will add to it as I think of other things that I want to accomplish.
