101 Things in 1001 Days

I found this idea from a fellow blogger and military spouse, Tracy, so I went to see what it was all about, and made my own's 101 things in 1001 days, Day Zero Project is where you can sign up for it, and make your own list, they have it all set up so you can make notes on your items, and so you can "check" them off as you go. Right now, I'm 3% finished. I'm set to finish on August 12, 2013, which is 2.75 years from Nov. 14, 2010. I figured this would be something neat to do while my husband is deployed, and some are things we can do together before he leaves and when he gets back. 

The ones I've finished are crossed through, ones I'm working on are in italics, and everything else is just plain text. 

I'm going to copy and paste the list onto a page, so it will be easier to keep track of on here, and I will add them to my other blog too.
