A New Year's List: 2011

A new day, a new year, so much new to do and be. I'm not one for New Year's Resolutions, really. (I mean, does anyone really keep those anyways?) Not trying to knock any of you making them, good for you and good luck! Here are a few "Non-Resolutions" that I am hoping to accomplish soon, both personally and on the house. Some are big, and some, not so much). Hopefully, putting them here will help.

The House: To-Do

-Complete the bed for our Master Bedroom
-Finish painting the Master Bedroom
-Stencil the Master Bedroom
-Organize my craft area, so that I can have "my own space" for all of the crazy things I do. (You know, like scrapbooking and couponing: rawr.)
- DIY window treatments for the Master Bedroom
-DIY window treatments for the bathroom (I'm tired of it being visible from the road: creepy!)
-DIY window treatments for the breakfast room
-Paint the front door
-Complete the sofa re-upholstery
-Install new hardware on the front door
-Install crown molding in Living Room
-Install crown molding in Master Bedroom
-Remodel kitchen (that's a big one...)
-Replace bathroom sink

and I could go on...and on...and on. So much I want to do. Oh so little time and money. But I'll keep treking.

My Life: Things to Do and Look Forward to

-Gather all of my birth supplies
-Have that baby! (Just three more months..)
-Be skinny again (UGH, I cannot wait!)
-Coupon more. (Ok, I admit, I watched a clip of that crazy TLC show. Maybe not 70 hours a week, but if it saves us a little more money...sweet!)
-Graduate!!! Hopefully this year...only 15 hours left!

I cannot wait to see all that 2011 holds...! So much to look forward to!
Happy New Year!

Do you have a New Year's Resolution or goal?

"Be skinny again."

I KNOW HOW YOU FEEL! At the end of my pregnancy I couldn't handle waiting anymore. I wanted to be able to look down and actually have my chest stick out further than my stomach, haha.

Happy New Year's!

Oh I just love your list. Sooooo close to graduation and so many balls to juggle - I just know you can do it though! Good luck and all the best in 2011!

Oh, I SO remember the "Gosh I just want to be skinny again" feeling that I was having just three weeks ago! I'm still not at my ideal weight, but 25lbs less is still a huge deal!
Just three more months and you'll be skinny again! Yay for that and for meeting the most worthy reason for getting fat :-) Haha

I hope you can cross a lot of projects off that list of yours! I see that you have lots of DIY window treatments - I'll be looking forward to seeing those since I plan on making some of my own! I should make a list like this to help keep myself on track, too.

I'm with you lists are good and in theory New Years resolutions are good but who really keeps them. Good luck on your list.

Joi said...

Those are some great goals! I want to coupon more, too!
