101 Things To Do In 1001 Days

This has probably been the hardest blog to write and the one I've worked on the longest.  For about 8 months, I've had a file on my computer called 101 Things To Do In 1001 Days.  I have been adding things to it and taking things off (like starting on another baby...done!) during that time and have FINALLY completed my list!  I'm really excited about this because it gives me some goals, some motivation, and puts some pressure on me to do things that I want to do!  These are in no particular order and I do hope to blog about each as they are completed.  So without further adieu, my list of 101 Things To Do In 1001 Days!

I have been to Fritz's. It's a fun place, I thought! Not something to do all the time, but a fun experience!

Love the list!!! You have inspired me to start making a list of my own - such a great idea!! Then you always have a project or something to strive for! :-) Good luck with the list! And y'all are always welcome down here to Houston for a vacation ;-) I'm sure the kids would have so much fun together and we have a lot of fun things to do around town :-)
