101 in 1001

I've seen a bunch of these "101 in 1001" lists floating around the internet, and I figured I'd throw my hat in the ring, too!  So, starting tomorrow (February 22, 2013) and ending 1001 days from then (November 20, 2015) I'd like to do the following 101 things.

Some are expensive, some are very cheap.  Some will require a lot of time invested, some will require very little.  Almost all will push me to do something different-something exciting-something I've never done before-or something I've always wanted to do again. 

As I read through the list, I can only imagine how exciting the next 1001 days will be if I can do all these things!!

such a big list! Good luck! =) I'd be totally overwhelmed, but I do love lists. I did a 30 for 30 list this year. Sadly, I'm not going to get to them all before I turn 31, but I'm ok with it.

You have some incredible items on your list! Vogue patterns has reproduced a whole bunch of their vintage dress patterns... http://voguepatterns.mccall.com/vintage-vogue-pages-850.php?list=0 My bridesmaids are wearing 8789, I'm wearing 1094, and my mom is wearing 2903 for my wedding! They go on sale all the time for just a couple of dollars... I got my dress pattern for $1.99!

Also, starting a garden is so relaxing. There are tons of tips and tricks on pinterest that could help you reach your pinterest goal, and your gardening goal at the same time. The best tip is to start your seeds in toilet paper rolls filled with potting soil.

Can't wait to hear about your adventures that result from this list =)
