New Year & 30 by 30 Update

It’s a new year and with that usually comes new goals! I always like January 1, the first day back to school, really the start of anything new because it seems like anything is possible. At least it feels that way for a few weeks :)

So, in 2013 I would like to:

Run 500 miles

Teach Will preschool

Continue home improvement projects —> And to be more intentional about them, have inspiration, a plan and follow through until completed

Continue knocking out items on my 30 by 30 list. Here’s what I’ve done so far and I highlighted the items I want to complete this year.

  1. Run a 10K I am tweaking this one a bit to an 8K! (Ran the Turkey Trot 11/22/12)
  2. Run a 15K (Chickamauga Chase 4/21/12)
  3. Run a 1/2 Marathon
  4. Take a West Coast road trip
  5. Own a mini-van
  6. Become a foster parent (We are officially approved foster parents. Haven’t gotten any calls yet,though.)
  7. Makeover kitchen (Major work (painting & backsplash) is complete – now to accessorize and organize!)
  8. Clogging Performance (I can’t believe I don’t have a picture! Clogged at Ketner’s Mill)
  9. Read through the Bible chronologically (I’m getting in the groove – ClearView is also reading and teaching through the Bible this year which is a huge accountability help)
  10. Get up to date with scrapbooking (Finished & ordered Thomas’ 1st year book! Still to do: 2010/2011/2012 & WDW Vacation)
  11. Do Project Life (maybe for 2013 summer vacations)
  12. Be a guest blogger
  13. Wear earrings at least 5 times (1. Brian’s birthday party/ 2. Melina’s wedding/ 3. Sept. 25 because I bought cute owl ones)
  14. Host Dixon Family Christmas (12/22/2012 – Details HERE)
  15. Lose my “muffin top” (I’ve lost 2 pounds!)
  16. Plant a garden
  17. Take family to NYC (June 2-4, 2012)
  18. Go to New Orleans
  19. Take boys to the county fair
  20. Read 10 books for fun (1. The Pastor’s Wife by Jennifer Allee/ 2. On the Run, 3. In Plain Sight & 4. Invisible by Lorena McCourtney/ 5. Daughter of Joy by Kathleen Morgan / 6. She Makes It Look Easy by MaryBeth Whalen/ 7. Deliver Me From Evil by Kathi Macias/ 8. Never Buried, 9. Never Preach Past Noon, 10. Never Kissed Goodnight, 11. Never Tease a Siamese, 12. Never Con a Corgi by Edie Claire) This really wasn’t even a challenge since I LOVE to read!
  21. Shoot a gun (9/25/2012)
  22. Read 1,000 Gifts and record my own
  23. Buy at least 1 Pinterest inspired outfit  (Bought this DRESS I found via Pinterest)
  24. Learn how to use camera in manual mode or at least how to take a good picture
  25. Make a loaf of bread
  26. Do a Sprint Triathlon
  27. See 4 movies at the theater (1. The Hunger Games 4/4/2012  2. Unconditional 9/21/2012)
  28. Go on a “girls weekend”  (3/30/12 – 4/1/12)
  29. Read 4 books to learn (Kisses from Katie by Katie Davis)
  30. Go 1 week without eating fast food or at a restaurant

Hopefully, I am not being too ambitious! I love having a list because I feel like I “have” to do it if it’s on a list. I also love the satisfaction of marking off a complete task.

Do you have any goals, resolutions, aspirations for 2013?

    I don’t have a list but I admire you and anyone that
    at least plans a goal. The Internet helps this
    generation I think since it is “posted”. Perhaps when
    I was young this would have been my pledge to accomplish more.
    You go girl!

    I’m a spur of the moment gal. If I planned it, it wouldn’t go well. Besides, my list would have to be 80 things before I am 80 and that wouldn’t give me much time to do them!

    Looks like if you would read less you could move on to accomplish a few other things!:) You go girl!
