When we moved from Mississippi, I must admit I thought that we were LEAVING "the country." Well folks, you CANNOT get more "country" than the South Carolina Apple Festival in the little ole' town of Westminster.
It was a grand time for the Stringers. Dirty carnival rides, sweet old church ladies selling everything from apple butter and apple turnovers to candied apples and apple cake, men with mullets in wife beaters eating giant turkey legs, and lots of hand-made crafts!

I have decided to take on a new and intertesting challenge. I was flipping through some random blogs one night and came across something that caught my attention. The 101 in 1001 challenge. The object is to complete a list of 101 tasks or goals in 1001 days!
101 goals! That's right. I know it's a lot, but 1001 days is 2.75 years in which you have to complete them all. I began my challenge by creating the list of things I would like to do and accomplish, dividing them into categories, and then beginning my 101 in 1001 challenge on September 1, 2010. That means I must have them all checked off my list by May 29, 2013!
My list contains fun trips I would like to take, projects I want to complete, skills I want to learn, and lots more. I won't be sharing my complete list with the world, because I feel like I will be more honest with myself about the things I want to accomplish if I keep them private. (I have shared them with Reed and my sister so that I can be reminded of them often and also for accountablity.)
Although you may not see a complete list, I do plan to blog about my progress and will let you know when I accomplish something!!! There are several things that will be "on-going" challenges throughout the next 1001 days, such as (#12) Trying a new recipe twice a month, (#16) Saving ALL my coin change, and (#17) Doing one activity or taking one trip a year with just my Daddy.
There are simple things that will just take an afternoon or a day to accomplish like (#61) Watching Gone with the Wind for the first time or (#54) Playing a complete round of golf. While others, like (#60) Joining a tennis league and (#39) Taking my boys to Disney World, will take a little more time and planning.
I hope you are as excited about this as I am and that you will follow me and help encourage me over the next 2.75 years!!!
Here goes nothing!
