New Year’s Resolutions: AK 2011

Last year was the first year I really made New Year’s resolutions.  I think I was a bit too ambitious with some of my list.  I did plow through several of them, but a couple just were not feasible.  I definitely got my closet organized, the extra bedroom closet organized and the junk drawer organized.  I got in more date nights with my hubby and made a ton of those movie nights as well!  I started off the year reading a lot more but ended the year with not reading again.

So this year I’ve decided to shorten my list and have everything be 100% attainable.  Here goes:

  1. After having a baby in May, definitely get back into my twice a week gym routine, no matter what. (shoes here.)
  2. Take more pictures.  We took a ton of pictures of my son his first year and at a certain point that sorta dropped off.  I want to have these memories and I definitely want the new baby to have all of his baby pictures to look at when he’s older as well. (Does anyone have one of these “best of both worlds” cameras? yay or nay?)
  3. Get craftier.  I still want to do the baby clothes quilt of my son’s first year.  I would love to crochet a blanket. I would also love to start doing more crafty projects with my son, especially for Christmas!  If I get one of these accomplished this year I will count that as a success!
  4. Keep organized along the way.  We just cleaned out the extra bedroom to make room for baby #2 and it was super simple because we had organized it last year.  I want to continue to keep things organized so that I don’t have to take time to overhaul things because it’s gotten so bad.

So there you have it, much shorter but I think definitely attainable!


  1. I love that you used pictures for your list. Sweet!

  2. @Notorious MLE ah that’s cool that you say that…I just can’t not include a pic, it’s like part of the goal!
