    Thanks for the link! Yeah, I kept finding things that I wanted to add to my list, so I decided on an “alternates” section. I think next time, I’ll just leave 15-20 items blank and fill them in later. Good luck on your list!

  2. June 1, 2009 5:07 pm

    Great list!

    I also LOVE your finish date – it just looks so pretty with the 1s and 2s and 0s – does that make sense? :)

      Thank you! Completely makes sense… at least it does to me! That’s why I picked it :) I love that yours ends on Thanksgiving!

    Awesome list! We have loads of tasks that are similar or along the same lines. Good luck! I will be checking back :)

      Thanks! I know!! I’m definitely looking forward to checking back with yours too :) Good luck!

    Thanks for the link! Your list inspires me to want to add even more to my list… :) I’m sure that running half marathons and marathons won’t sneak there way onto my current list, but it would certainly be a good one to add after the first 101 is completed!
    I’ll be sure to check in on your blog to see your progress- it seems like you have already have a good start!
    On a totally random note, I was reading that your husband is from Iowa. I also am originally from Iowa- northeastern corner to be exact. Is he from the same area? I always get excited when I see that someone’s from Iowa. It doesn’t seem to happen too much when it comes to the blog-world!

      I had to start a “things for my next 101” list because I kept coming across great ideas from other bloggers :)

      He’s from Richland, IA (about an hour south of Iowa City) and I graduated from University of Iowa then we lived in Pella, IA for a couple years. I don’t come across very many other Iowans either :)

      • June 26, 2009 11:37 pm

        You lived in Pella? My mom’s co-worker is from Pella! :)

          Small world!! Shane worked at Vermeer for 4 (or 5?) years so I moved there after I graduated. It’s a really cute little Dutch town. I only miss Tulip Time :)

    Thanks so much for commenting on my blog and adding me to your links list. I didn’t realize there were so many people doing this and had blogs like mine.

      There seems to be a lot of people starting it in the last couple months. If you go to DayZero you can see a master list (and add yours to it if you like). I find reading other people’s lists really interesting and tend to find things I want to put on my next 101 that I never would have thought of :)

  6. August 9, 2009 11:06 am

    Ooh, excellent list! I would love to go paintballing!
    I also thought about doing the A-Z challenge but ended up rejecting it… although I did find out there is a place in Germany that begins with X, which I think would have been the hardest letter.

      Thanks for checking out my list!

      I was worried about finding an “X” place to visit at first but I think there may be one not far from where I live (super small town but it will count lol).

    One of my favorite foreign films is The Butterfly and the Diving Bell. It’s a French Film. It’s really good, very sad, but good.

    I’m thinking about getting a snitch, or the symbol for the Deathly Hollows. But I change my mind a lot…so we’ll see!

    • taraSG permalink
      August 14, 2009 12:41 pm

      I’ve seen some really cute tattoos of snitches and Deathly Hollows symbols. I think I’d like to get a spell or a quote maybe. But I tend to lean towards word tattoos. Only 1 out of my 5 isn’t a word :)

    Nice list! I’m interested in following your blog. Thanks also for the link to Day Zero List Makers.

    I particularly like #83. Once upon a time I knew how to sign, but I lost that knowledge over time. I’m interested in re-learning. Know of any resources?

  15. September 17, 2009 3:29 pm

    Nice list and a good practice, very inspirational, i’m going to do my own.

    Now the next step is to work for it…

    your A to Z challenge was really cool so I have my own challenge to0…

    thanks A lot…:)

    Great list. I stole a few for my future list. I’m about half way through my first one. Keep spreading the news of 101 in 1001! You are doing a great job!

  19. March 28, 2010 6:47 pm

    Wow I’ve noticed a lot of changes since the last time I’ve been here! I like the new stuff too. I’m deciding to take geocaches off my list too. They don’t seem as interesting as they did when I first discovered them. My list needs revamping too. Thanks again for being my inspiration, Tara! If I remember correctly, I think it was your list that made me want to create my own :]

      Aww thanks! Let’s hope I can pick up the motivation again :)
