Project 52 Update

Well, I think I can easily admit, Project 52 is not going well this year.  I wasn't sure I wanted to do it this year and set a list...but my heart just hasn't been in it.  With that said...


15. Try a new restaurant - I went to Zocalo and Cenote with co-workers.

22. Break Trent’s ‘night-night’ habit - It's broken...but it ain't pretty still in our house.

29. Visit a state I’ve never been to - I'm counting my work trip to NOLA, I've only driven through LA before.

36. Do something special for our anniversary (October 16) - Trip to Vegas is booked!  My co-worker is getting married there on 10/13.

40. Be better with my skin care - As a part of trying to get more natural, I've been researching skin products.  Right now, I'm trying Neutrogena Naturals.  I also want to try Burt's Bees...  I'd still like to find some 'anti-aging' stuff.

42. Figure out how I want to organize our family photos - I bit the bullet and decided to go ahead and order all the pictures since January 2009 and put in albums.

43. Organize said family photos - I bought 576 pictures this week.  That covered 1 year.  Eek.

48. Try new foods - I tried radishes this week.  Let's just say I'm not a fan.

50. Get pregnant - Whoo hoo!  Definitely my most important goal and accomplishment!


1. Don't be such a homebody - Getting pregnant isn't helping with this!

3. Try (again) to learn how to play the guitar - one song is all I want! - Nope. I really want to take lessons because trying to watch a DVD just isn't working, but it's not going to happen anytime soon.

4. Try (again) to learn how to sew - My mother-in-law and I talked about tackling this again when I'm on maternity leave.

11. Lose these last 10+ pounds - Preggo...

18. Date night once a month - Once a month should be easy...but it isn't.  I'd say we're doing better this year than last though!

30. Have fresh flowers in the house more often - I just never want to spend the money.

38. Have Trent swimming by the end of summer - Utter #momfail.

39. Reduce my work % - Um, I increased it.  The plan is to go down to what I was after maternity leave and then down from there with my next raise...

44. Donate blood - Preggo...

I still have some I think I can manage, but I'll probably achieve half at best.
