101 in 1001

To start off this new blogging adventure and our new adventure in life, we wanted to challenge ourselves.  I actually saw the idea on this blog and fell in love.  The idea comes from dayzero, a community of challenge based individuals.  Ben and I tend to stay at home and enjoy our Netflix nights.  Hopefully this challenge will push us to do a bit more in the next 1001 days and even more after that.
