  9. I absolutely love this (and want to also do a whole lot of the things on your list)- I hope you don’t mind, but I feel like I need to steal this idea and have my own checklist on my blog. If you do mind, let me know!

    • Heck no! Check out #88! I told someone about the list before and he said he was going to do one, but never got to 101 and probably gave up on it! I’m sure you’ll keep at it! Good luck!
