101 in 1001

It's the first day of school and I've got this massive break between classes, but no studying that needs to be done (hooray!), so I did what any girl would do: caught up on some blog reading. Mackenzie Horan is a blogger that I follow pretty consistently (she has the preppiest wardrobe I've ever seen and I just love it) and she made this mega bucket list that I've decided to copy. Imitation is the greatest form of flattery, right? :)

So here's the concept: you choose 101 things that you want to do in 1001 days, which is just under 3 years. That should plenty of time, right? If I start today, which I am, I'll have until the end of December 2017 to finish. It's crazy to think that 2018 is just over 1000 days away, isn't it?!
