Total Basset Case: 2012 Goals

2012 Goals

I know I am a little late to this whole 'resolutions' party 
but, hey
better late than never, right?

And just so you know, I did write down these goals a few days ago so really I'm just late on posting them!

Last year the Mister and I put together a 2011 resolution list and hung it on our fridge.
We did pretty well if I do say so myself...
We completed19/32 of our goals.
Yes we could have done better ...
but that's what a new year is for, isn't it?

Here are our top goals for this year!
(P.S. I find it really helps to have these posted on the fridge as a daily reminder)

  1.  Organize office: This is a constant battle but I am determined to keep it under wraps this year.
  2. Eat healthy be healthy: This one is more of a reminder.  Currently I am doing the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred (and she's kicking my butt) and the Mister just started P90X2. So far, so good!
  3.  Bed frame: We could really use a headboard...I've contemplated making one but I'm not sure if I have those skillz.
  4.  Organize and use recipes: This really has be to accomplished for my sanity and the sake of our meal planning
  5.  Church: This was on our list last year and we put exactly 0 effort toward it.  We will begin our 'church shopping' this weekend.
  6.  Finish Floyd’s Stocking: I need about 2 rainy afternoons and this should be done.
  7.  Start Holiday Prep (baking, crafting, decorating) Earlier (October): Enough said.
  8.  Camera Class: I want to be able to fully utilize my new toy!
  9.  Honeymoon Photo Album: I just bought a Groupon to do this! 2 years later, NBD.
  10.  Blog Growth: I am very excited about this one...I love seeing this little corner of my world grow.  Any suggestions on the best way to do this are greatly appreciated!
  11.  Sewing Machine Magic: Pillow shams and sprucing up our master bedroom window treatments here I come!
  12.  Sign up for and utilize Mint.com: Just common sense. 
  13. Run a 5k???: Okay, this one is a far stretch.  Last year my goal that was a stretch was this blog and that seems to be going well :) So while I may need a lot of encouragement on this one I'm excited to see how it turns out! (p.s. I'm thinking of following the Couch to 5k program)
So there it is!
We have a few more but I didn't want to totally bore you.

What are your biggest goals of the new year?

These look like wonderful goals, I have heard such great things about the 30 day shred!

Hope you have a wonderful day!

I love this list Sarah; I even have several similar goals. I have been dying to learn how to sew and my mom got me a machine for Christmas. If you have, or run across, any tips or helpful websites for sewing, please send them my way.

Sounds like we have a lot in common besides our hounds... a lot of our goals match up! Also, I love 30DS... tough but effective!

I just sewed pillow cases (simple ones) and will post about them tomorrow. Good first step, I think!

And I made a headboard this fall - http://www.hardlyhousewives.com/2012/01/handy-headboard.html The photos aren't the best but you can get a feel for it! It was pretty easy to do and I LOVE it in our guest room.

Couch to 5K is an awesome program. That's how I started!!!! Also, remember, there are going to be days that you just aren't feeling it...get out there and at least walk it...running is a great partner to other exercise programs to keep you limber and strong! great work!
