104 in Things in 104 Weeks

Inspired by Emily's list of 101 things to do in 1001 days I decided to try to spice up our life, start some family traditions, and just have more fun by completing 104 things in 104 weeks.

7 little remarks:

Amy said...

I think this is a good idea. Some I am sure will be harder than others. Good luck

Laura said...

I don't have any awesome ideas, but I'm so excited for #65!!! And good luck with #66.

emily said...

So fun! I love this idea. Way more ambitious than giving myself 1001 days. Yay! What fun ideas!

Brooke said...

This is just the sort of thing I need to motivate and help Eric and I feel like we're not doing the same things all the live long day. These are some great plans. I think I might steal some of them for my new list I'm writing up for us. :)

Mardi and Jeremey said...

Great list! I am going to print this off and make my own adjustments. Although, I will say, you put Christmas cards twice...and I don't think that sounds like enough fun to do twice, :). I would add, go to a football game. Or you could always go to the Real Salt Lake Game this weekend.

Jason and Tami said...

That is such a great idea! I love the list. You should make a pie or go to the craft store and make a holiday craft! That would be a lot of fun! It was great to see you on Saturday!

Tiff said...

Anna.. I love this! I'm totally going to steal your idea (and probably a lot of the items in the list). I couldn't believe how many things I haven't done...

I can help with the Murder Mystery Dinner. I have one you could borrow if you want. It's called The Class of '54.
