2011 Goals

As I stated last year I don't like to set my self 'resolutions'. I prefer the words goals. If I don't reach them I am okay with that. It is just fun to set something and check in every now and then and see how I am doing. Enough with the boring stuff, on to the goals! 

Goal #1- Get & Stay Organized: My husband will tell you that I am the messy one. He is someone that likes order, where I am the one that will just throw things in my closet and clean it later. I finally got sick of being that way and have decided to change! This week we bought stuff to organized my closet and dresser drawers. 

Goal #2- Run a 10k: As you know last year I got really into running. It is amazing what our bodies can do. This year I want to push myself and run a 10k (6.2 miles). This is a very do-able goal for me. I think this will by my first 10k. Right before my 25th birthday. 

Goal #3- Be More Crafty:  I have a whole room dedicated to my crafts. I need to take sometime this year and work on some stuff. Who knows, maybe I could even make some stuff and sell it at local craft shows or Etsy.com! 

Goal #4- Shop For Only What I Need: Now if you ask my close friends you will find out that I am a thrifty shopper. I look for deals and never buy full price. This year I am wanting to do something different. After cleaning out my closet and drawers I realized I have enough clothes. There are other things I can get with that money-save for Lasik (that A just got, so jealous!), use the money to finish our basement, again (it flooded a few months after we moved it and had to rip up the carpet), or decorate our guest bedroom. If I buy something new I am make a rule that I have to get rid of something. 

Goal #5- Blog More: As the years have gone by I have blogged more and more every year. I want to have more of a direction on my blog. I enjoy blogging because I get to document my life and look back. I want to know what my readers want to see more as well. I want to grow my blog too. I am open to suggestions! 

That's it for this year! I plan on continuing my goals from last year as well. I will do check ins every now and then to track my progress!
