101 Things in 1001 Days

I was reading a blog the other day and was completely inspired on one of her post. She made a list of 101 task to do in 1001 days. I thought, how cool, LETS DO ITTTT!  

As you might know, us Americans love our new years resolutions and we keep them all too! ;) Seriously though, one of my new years resolutions was to stop saying I was going to do this or that and do it! I want to live more and experience life to the fullest. Yeah, yeah.... I know what your thinking, we all say this. I really wanted to take a dig at it. Something I did was going to New Orleans for my b-day, that was up in the air until about a week before. 

I just kept telling myself (like most people do) that I'll do it tomorrow and like always tomorrow never came. I wanted to be like Jim Carrey in Yes Man. Just start saying YES to everything! Not really, but you get my point. Oh and if you haven't seen the movie! I highly recommend it since Jim Carrey is comedy gold!

Here is the blog I got the idea from! I used some of her items since they were so good! I will keep you updated when I complete a significant amount.
