There are so many things I want to do (I guess most of the people have lots of dreams/wishes/hopes/.. Whatever you like to call it) but I actually find it very hard to say now 'these are the things I want to do'
Maybe it is because I'm in my finals (already studying for 1.5 month, non-stop) so next week when they are over, I'm going to seriously think about it!
Very nice list by the way :) xx lyn

This list is great, especially the Wisconsin section! If you've never had cheese curds at Merchant, make sure to include those in your sampling adventure

Dianna M. said...

I love, love, love this! I am such a list-maker/planner and writing things down motivates me to stick with my goals and dreams. I'm going to take some time to make my list this weekend & I'm totally stealing some of your ideas! {i.e. "Attempt to make macarons.", "Send a piece of snail mail a week." <3

Lindsay said...

Such a good idea! Have you guys watched Luther on Netflix yet? That's a perfect one to binge in one sitting.

Shannon Berkery said...

What a great list Lauren! I'm still working on finishing my list and this may have been the inspiration I needed :)

Tomissa said...

I am so excited to see how this goes for you, dear!

Emily {Isnt That Charming} said...

Girlfriend - this list is amazing and I give you so much credit for attempting this! It's such a good idea to write down goals and keep track of progress. I find that, if I don't, I tend to forget!

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend!
Isn’t That Charming.

Leigha Woelffer said...

These are AWESOME! I might have to steal some :)

Attend a blog conference is on my radar too. Guess I need to start that blog?

What conference are you looking at? ALT next year? Inquiring mind wants to know!

And you know what we (my 4 bff's and I) do for dinner parties? We each take a month, every other month, and host. It's so much fun! We pick themes, send out invitations and go wild. Our month is April and we're doing a Spanish tapas on the deck evening, complete with a musician. LOL It's so Martha Stewart meets Southern, and we love it. I can't wait to see what you do! Even our husbands look forward to it.

Doing 101 things in 1001 days is a great challenge for yourself, Lauren! Some may think it’s difficult, especially on the part of being debt-free and sticking on the budget, because those are the things that are not easy to maintain. But I think with your determination, and should your business succeed, everything will fall to their rightful place. Good luck!
