101 in 1001


Lately I have been wanting to create some sort of bucket list/to-do list of things I want to accomplish. It was important to me that the list had a long deadline so I wouldn’t feel overwhelmed by trying to complete all the task in such a short amount of time and after reading  Katey’s 101 in 1001 from the Chronicles of Frivolity, I decided to create my own list of 101 things to do in 1001 days (2.75 years). Katey adopted the concept from Mackenzie Horan, who says “It’s a way to dream big and make regular progress toward meeting those longer term goals.” Did I mention Mackenzie is now on her second list? So cool right?

I am really excited to start this journey and I will constantly be updating the 101 in 1001 page (under the More + tab) as I cross-out  goals off my list as I complete them. If you have created a 101 in 1001 list comment the link below and I will be sure to check it out. If you haven’t, I encourage you to create one and be sure to comment the link below. :)

Thanks for stopping by!

  • What a great list you have! I’ve in the process of relearning Spanish with my family. My daughter asked if she could learn and I thought why not make it a family event?! Look forward to seeing updates on your progress.

    • Thank you! That is such a great idea to learn a language as a family. I may have to try french or something else with my family. Best of luck to you relearning spanish.

  • pumpupapp

    I love how you sorted out the bucket list (especially that you’re investing after you finish each goal, what a great idea!). I was actually thinking of creating my own fitness related bucket list. Best of luck!

    Those all sound like great goals! I’ve been wanting to do one of those for a while now so I just might have to! I go to Ole Miss too so I think the Oxford ones are super fun! Thanks for sharing!

    • Oh cool. I love it when I learn about other Ole Miss/Oxford bloggers. You should grab lunch with Claudia and I when we are all back. I’d love to meet you.

      • Sydney Brown

        Yes definitely!

  • Claudia Jane

    Great list!! I may try making one!
    xo, claudia

    • Thanks Claudia. We have to get lunch again when we are back in Oxford! :)

  • Everything on this list is great–but the last one, in my opinion is best! Sometimes I forgot how easy it is to save up just a dollar or two at a time :)

    • Thank you Julia. I am the same way, I forget to save ALL the time, so I thought this would be a great way to start. :)

  • Miss ALK

    These are such AWESOME goals!! We have a few of the same- like wishing for fantastics 21st birthdays (and I also want to visit a winery after my 21st!). I want to create one of these lists as well but after I graduate college and am settled into my first job/permanent city. :-) Right now I have a general bucket list on my blog though!

    xoxo A

  • Gina Zammit
