101 in 1001!

So my very good friend Stephanie  has pressured me again.  I give into peer pressure way too easily don't I? : )  We've been inspired to start our own 101 in 1001 lists.  This past summer I had a summer bucket/to do list with one of my bffs, Jackie, so I already had a head start on a few of the items on my list.  I think we should start it up ASAP!  What do you think?  Also I have a couple of items that aren't very specific but I know I want to do something (see #22 & #69 for sure).  Suggestions welcome!
