101 in 1001

This is my 101st blog post.  That’s pretty incredible.  I started this blog in the second trimester of pregnancy.  I wanted to write about my experience with pregnancy and keep people updated on my life.  I didn’t get into the swing of blogging until Cameron was a couple of months old, but since then, I’ve really embraced blogging.  It has been an outlet for me, a way to remember this experience, and a way to connect with friends, family, and the internet community.

So, for this hundred and first blog post, I’m going to do something a little different.  I’ve seen something around the internets called 101 in 1001.  It is kind of like a bucket list – but instead, it is a list of 101 goals to be completed within 1001 days.

I am going to cheat a slight bit.  You see, I could come up with 101 goals in a few days, but most of them would just be crap.  So, as I’m crossing goals off the list over the last 1001 days, I’m also going to be adding to the list until I hit 101 goals that are actually important to me.  Even as I have been thinking about this list over the past weekend, I know that I have thought of goals that I have forgotten as soon as I was about to write them down.  So the list will be a work in progress.

1001 days from today will be Monday, July 1, 2013.  I will be 27 years old.  Cameron will be over 3 years old. Dan and I will be married for just about 5 years.  And in 1001 days, these are the things that I want to accomplish:

  1. Sleep through the night
  2. Donate blood
  3. Don’t complain about anything for a week
  4. Have a completely clean house
  5. Plan meals for a month

  9. Bake a cake and use fondant
  10. Bake cake pops
  11. Paint a canvas for Cam’s nursery

  13. Plan an amazing party for Cam’s first birthday
  14. Potty train Cameron
  15. Teach Cameron his ABC’s
  16. Teach Cameron how to count
  17. Teach Cameron how to count in French
  18. Be debt free
  19. Move into a house
  20. Do taxes in time
  21. Start my own business
  22. Make money from my photography

  29. Run a 5k
  30. Run a half marathon
  31. Go skydiving
  32. Get pregnant
  33. Have another baby
  34. Go on a family vacation (to somewhere other than our family’s places).
  35. Take a trip with just Dan
  36. Go on one date a month with Dan for a year
  37. Have a Mom’s night out once a month for a year

About Laura O'Rourke

I’m Laura. Wife to Dan. Mama to Cameron and Gavin. Blogger. Photographer. I’ve been declared “baby crazy” by my husband. I’ve been blogging since 2003 when I was a teenager. My first blog post ever begged forgiveness for all the future blog posts that would follow. Consider that still in effect. I met my husband through blogging, I planned a wedding while blogging, and we tweeted the births of both of our sons. Consider this my memoir, my legacy, my letter to my children and my hand reaching out to other Moms. I love being a wife. I love being a Mom. I love blogging. And I can’t wait to meet you.
