101 in 1001

27 05 2010

One of the blogs that I read stalk is My Front Porch Looking In.  MTM posted a list of 101 things to do in 1001 days.  I loved this idea and have been pondering it and wondering if I can think of that many things I want to do.  After much thought I have decided to post my own list and try it out. Of course I love some of her ideas so I am going to add some of them to mine as well.  To start June 1, 2010 and finished February 26, 20103.  Without further ado, here is my list.
