101 in 1001

In lieu of resolutions, I have decided to start the 101 in 1001 challenge!  Basically you create 101 goals or plans and try and accomplish them in 1001 days.  It sounds like a daunting task, but you have a little over 2 1/2 years to complete them all which makes the challenge less overwhelming.  I decided to split my goals into categories as to make it easier for me to keep up with.  I know a couple of other women who have done this challenge and are thoroughly enjoying it!  So here goes nothing!
