101 in 1001


Happy New Year babes! It’s been a hot minute since we’ve written a blog post, but we are now back in Fayetteville together and back in the swing of things. Instead of coming up with a list of resolutions that I will more likely than not never look at again after today, I’ve decided to jump on the 101 in 1001 bandwagon. Mackenzie Horan of Design Darling is the first one I saw do this list, although it’s been all over the internet since then!

This is basically a list of 101 items that you will (hopefully somewhat) complete in the next 1001 days. I thought this was a better option for me in terms of goal setting, because it combines short and long-term goals along with overall lifestyle changes. Fingers crossed that I will actually do most of them (I’m counting on all of you to hold me accountable and check up on me during the next 2 1/2 years!!) I’ve literally been working on this list since November, and I’m determined to mark at least 5 items off the list this month.

I really really hope that some of you will join me and we can help each other be more productive people!! Less loafin’ around in 2018, my friends.
