Project 52

So I know I already did a post with a 'resolution' of sorts for 2011 for me.  But I saw this post over at Handbags and Handguns and saw this neat idea that Karen started.  And I thought it was really fun.  It's a list of 52 goals I hope to accomplish and/or complete in 2011.

1. Create (read: pay someone to create) a header for my blog.

2. Eat a tomato (this one is for K-Dub).

3. See all movies nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars.

4. Save money to buy a Canon Rebel.

5. Take a photography class.

6. Get back to pre-baby body (or as close to it as possible).

7. Have a girls’ weekend.

8. Run at least 1 5K.

9. Finally finish Jane Eyre (I’ve started it twice).

10. Create 'pages' on blog.

11. Purge our house of excess clutter.

12. Start Trent’s college fund.

13. Organize photos.

14. Finally learn to sew (lessons from mother-in-law).

15. Try ‘My Fit Foods’.

16. Spend some time in my flower beds.

17. Volunteer.

18. Continue learning guitar (or more like re-start).

19. Take Trent to the San Antonio Zoo.

20. Make more dinners for our family.

21. Create a budget.

22. Make a will.

23. Visit the World of Harry Potter.

24. Go on more dates with Brent.

25. Do something ‘Austin’-y.

26. Use my crock pot at least once a month.

27. Less bad eating!

28. Have a guest blogger (and someone who is not an IRL friend).

29. Get moving again.

30. Eat like a vegetarian for a week (or at least a weekend).

31. Cut back on Starbucks.

32. Go to 1 live concert.

33. Do something creative w/ Trent (like Children’s museum) at least 1 time per month.

34. Wear more of my ‘fun’ jewelry.

35. Try 1 new recipe per month.

36. Comment more on other blogs.

37. Buy leggings/tights (and wear them).

38. Make blog more fun!

39. Get more followers (hope #38 will help entice people).

40. Add some decorations in the house (some of our house doesn’t feel finished to me).

41. Spend lots of time with my new niece or nephew and take some of the burden away from my sister.

42. Do something fun for our anniversary (October 16).

43. Try Bikhram yoga

44. Read 1 classic (other than Jane Eyre), 1 non-fiction book and 1 biography.

45. Finish combining our bank accounts.

46. Finish ordering professional pictures (maternity, newborn and Trent’s 1-year).

47. Hang Christmas lights myself and get something for the yard (but NOT a blow-up decoration).

48. Get a bounce house for Trent’s birthday.

49. Don’t be so scared about having Trent spend the night other places.

50. Attend the Texas Book Festival with Allison.

51. Go to at least 1 Aggie sporting event.

52. Pay $5 to a children’s charity for each goal not completed.

Wanna join me for bikram on Sunday?

You should change "San Antonio zoo" to "Cameron Park Zoo" in Waco. He would enjoy it so much more and it's really pretty there....closer too. It's not as big as SA, which is one of the many reasons it's better, but I can't think of hardly any animals it doesn't have. Try it out...well worth it! We go a few times per year!

When you figure out #10 (create blog pages) let me know! I really want to do this. Also, I disagree with Val and think you should change San Antonio Zoo to FORT WORTH ZOO!

This is such a great list! I hope you'll come back and link it up on the Project 52 page.

It sounds like it's going to be a good year for you AND for Trent. :-)

The Cameron Park Zoo in Waco is better than San Antonio...plus cheap to get in! We go a couple times every year too.
If you eat vegetarian for a week you will feel great! We do it periodically and LOVE it!
