101 in 1001

Hi Y'all!
Here it is. Finally, my 101 things to do list in 1001 days.

When I was new to the blogging world I saw this A LOT! it intrigued me. I found it to be something fun and reasonable to complete. I decided I would start this after the wedding. Then I kept putting it off for the right time but tell me, when is it ever the right time? One thing I know for sure is that everything happens for a reason. Have you noticed today's date? Yup, 11/11/11. What better time than this :) Not only that but on this very day I get to cross off my very first task on the list, #68- make a wish on Nov. 11, 2011 at 11:11am/pm.

 Here we go!

 The Mission: Complete 101 preset tasks in a period of 1001 days.

The Criteria: Tasks must be specific (i.e. no ambiguity in the wording) with a result that is either measurable, or clearly defined. Tasks must also be realistic and stretching (i.e. represent some amount of effort on your part).

  1. what a cute idea! how did you add the tabs at the top of your page?

  2. Hi Angela. Thanks.
    I use the newer version of blogger which is easier to maneuver and you can find the "pages" option on the left hand side. On top of format, layout, etc.
