101 in 1001

I love lists. Actually, I love scratching things OFF a list. It makes me feel accomplished. So when I heard about the Day Zero "101 in 1001" challenge, I knew it was something I would enjoy doing. The premise of the challenge is to create a list of 101 things and cross them all off in a period of 1001 days (or 2.75 years) So with that information in mind... I made a list of thing I've been wanting to do. As Barney Stinson would say, Challenge Accepted!
