3 Lookin' Good Twenty Twelve

Thursday, January 12, 2012

I realize that it's already the 12th day of the year but the way my life is going this is pretty good for me. I don't normally make resolutions. And when I do I typically fail. But this year I have a lot to look forward to, and a lot to check off my to do list. In order to make sure that I make progress I need to make myself a list of goals or resolutions if you will.

Get fit:
       ~ Eat better
       ~ Run, run, run - I was up to 5 miles beginning of december but I took a hiatus to eat my weight in cookies, mashed potatoes, and other such holiday treats.
       ~ lose 10 lbs (roughly) before W-Day
       ~ Go on more hikes with the babe  and other out doorsy things

Plan a wedding - As many of you may already know 2012 is the year of my wedding. I don't know, it's kinda a big deal. So far I have a dress, a date, and a venue. That's it. I officially have 8 months and 3 days. People plan a wedding in way less time than that but for me that's not a lot of time. Especially because this past year has gone by so fast for me so i can only imagine how fast this one will go. Good golly this is a mighty ambitious task.

Make more time for crafting

BLOG - Iv been having trouble balancing my life, job, kid, and blog. This little spot means a lot to me. I have family and friends who look forward to reading it and I havent been keeping up with my end of the deal. Sorry peeps, Im going to work on it.

Spend more time with my family - I want to do more things together. Mikey P and I. Take Peyton all over the place. Do out of the ordinary stuff with her. We live so close to so many great things and we never venture far from our comfort zone. That needs to change.

Spend more time with the people I love - I need to spend more couple time with Mikey. Actually go on dates. I need to spend more time with my friends. Weather it be in real life or over the phone I need to keep in touch better with my closest friends. Its hard when you have totally different schedules and lives but with this new fangled thing called interwebz I have no excuses.

I think the best way for me to make sure I keep up with my goals/resolutions/whatever is to make monthly check lists for each category. Im taking January to get my life in order but come February I'm taking my life on full force. I hope to be able to share it with you every step of the way and I hope that you will be here to share it with me.
2012 I have some pretty high expectations for you, don't let me down!

You live near DC? So do I!
One of my goals for New Years is to be more adventurous and take Judah to all the neat (and free) kiddo things in the area. Like they have a kids concert in Dulles town center Thursday mornings at 11 :-) Judah LOVES it and I just found out about some really cool play areas for kids. I do want to take him into DC (metro'ing it) once the weather is warmer :-)
