Third Times The Charm

Back on January 1, 2010 I started my very first 101 in 1001 challenge.  Despite only completing 46 out of my 101 goals I was hooked. I'm a goal setter; a list maker.  So on September 28, 2012 I started my 2nd one. I did equally crappy completing less than half my goals once again. (Recap coming soon.)  This time around I feel like I was a lot more honest with myself & therefore a lot more realistic.  My 3rd 101 list begins this Saturday, June 27th. However, as some unspoken rule we don't blog on weekends, & I already have my Friday Favorites ready to go for tomorrow, so I'm sharing my 101 in 1001 3.0 with you today.

  1. All of your goals look awesome!! Including all of the baseball, party and food goals!
    I'm excited to see how you go in completing everything on your bucket list!

  2. SO many good things on this list!! It makes me want to update my 30 before 30 list haha! I look forward to hearing about you crossing all these off one by one! :)

  3. I love these lists. Donating for goals not completed is a great idea, and motivator. You have some fun ones on there. Have fun doing them.

  4. Sorry I'm late to commenting, I wanted to have time to read the whole thing :) Lots of good things! If you ever need help or motivation, I love pushing people to complete things.
