A very fun day...

We braved the rainy weather and long drive, and ventured out to Binder Park Zoo in Battle Creek, Michigan. I ended up being a GREAT day. We went with my mom, Aunt Amy and cousins Cassie and Shelby. Their was hardly anyone else in the zoo (scared off by rain that morning?) But we stayed dry and loved seeing everything from Zebras and Kangaroos, to 500 pound turtles and pandas.

#60 Completed

#60 Start texting, is now completed! It took me a while to give in to this craze, but my family and friends are all texting and when I would get a text from them, I would read it and have to pay a fee. So... I broke down, headed to the mall and had them add unlimited texting to my phone. I have to say, I am already addicted to it. But it does make me spend less time calling on my phone!

Ending March 8, 2012

Just a bit more about this challenge...
I first saw this idea at The Life of A New Mommy. After reading her list, I couldn't wait to do my own. After a bit of searching and googling, I found ideas for this everywhere. It was a bit harder than I thought to come up with 101, but I had a lot of inspiration for the other lists I read.

My end date is MARCH 8, 2012. It seems like a long time, but I know I better get to work to make sure I get it all done.

Number #99

Number #99 is complete, I found the cutest notebook in a box in the basement to start writing down ideas so it's not so hard to think about what to write.

This week we are going to try #40 - No TV for a week. I am a little nervous about no Curious George after nap, but other than that I think we will be fine. I am hoping we will get a chance to read more!
