101 in 1001

A few of my favorite bloggers have made out a list of 101 things they want to do in 1001 days. I love the idea and as soon as I finished reading their lists I started making a list of my own!

Happy Wednesday fiends!!!! 


  1. I have had read the entire Bible on my list for way too long now. Time to check that goal off and get to it!

  2. This is AWESOME and I hope you don't mind if I steal like half of these ideas! They're brilliant!

  3. This is an awesome idea. I may just have to start drafting up a list!

  4. I really like the idea of doing this! I hope you're able to accomplish every last one of these :)

  5. What a great bucket list!! I haven't done the 101 in 10001 but I do have a general bucket list page up on my blog. :-)

  6. I saw one of these posts recently and vowed that I'd do one and now I just have to! Although I do have a general bucket list. By the way your list is really good, I always wanted to start a garden as well.

  7. Love the list! I have read the whole bible too! Can't wait to see how the next 1001 days go for you ;)

  8. Ahh, Shelby! I love your blog! I can't believe it has taken me so long to get on. I will probably share this post on my blog if you don't mind(:
    Thanks so much for inspiration!

  9. Love your list--especially the helping others portion and of course "marry Matthew".
    I read the entire Bible using the YouVersion on my iPhone and it was really enjoyable because I always had access to it. Anyway you do it--go for it!

  10. I think it's cute that you put "marry Matthew" before you put "get engaged."

    I volunteer for a snail mail letter!


Your comments always make my day!
