  1. Wow…that is an awesome list! Good for you!

    And while I'm sure that there are at least 101 things I need to accomplish…I'm not sure I could list them all…in one sitting. How long did it take you to make that list?!!!

    Best wishes for a blessed 2012. I loved your goal for Eucharistic Adoration!

  2. Love your list hun x

  3. Very inspirational! Makes me think about all of the things I want to do and have done. Good luck, you can get your list “done” (is it ever really “done”?) if you set your mind to it!


  1. […] of my 101 Goals in 1001 Days is to make an ongoing list of healthy and yummy foods for Cupcakes to eat – at least 50 Meals […]
