101 Goals in 1001 Days

So.. a few of my friends have started posting this list of goals! I've thought that this was such a great idea for a while, but I just haven't taken the time to actually sit down and do it! But, with inspiration from Jessica, Candice and Haley (bwt-the super cute design up there is by Jess - i was too lazy to make my own and her's was adorable.. thanks jess!) I finally thought about it and made my list!
Some are pretty meaningful and deep, but some do seem a little trivial. No matter what the level of seriousness, it's still a goal though! And, I do hope to complete all 101 of them in 1001 days! OH - and that's like 1 goal every 10 days! That's already a little intimidating! ha!
Alright.. here goes my list..

This is such a great idea! I love the one about Target, that would be so hard for me! BTW I got Mable's bed from T.J. Maxx in Eastgate Shoppeing Center. It was only $20.
