2016 Goals

I'm a little late posting about goals for 2016, but I spent a lot of time thinking about big picture goals as well as smaller, every day goals. 

I have a few things I want to accomplish this year that expand on some things I started in 2015. Namely continue to focus on (1) overall organization and cleanliness {I really feel like I made progress this year - still not where I want to be but definitely made improvements}, (2) my growth as a wife and mother {I would definitely say I feel the most guilt at the end of the day at my failings in this arena but again made progress this year and want to continue that}, and (3) my health {going to do another Whole 30 round and focus on paleo recipes and our new gym membership - cliche? totally!}.

But I also made a few goals that I won't accomplish in January but wanted to write them down to be able to track my progress since these 3 will have a definite visible result as compared to my 'growth' goals.

1. Shutterfly all the pictures - I did a good job for a while of uploading pictures monthly to Shutterfly to not run the risk of losing them. And I started making photobooks instead of printing pictures. But then I lost momentum. So I don't have a photobook past the spring of 2012, and I don't have 2014 onward uploaded. So this will be a big goal for the year!

2. Decorate the house - Brent and I talked about how I am pretty much paralyzed with inability to decorate our house. I have some ideas for what I want to do in a few areas but not a cohesive plan...yet. I have a friend helping me, and I think we're going to start going one room at a time and probably with the kitchen since it has the least needs. I am also planning a trip to Magnolia Market and am SO pumped. I love Fixer Upper so I hope I can find a few things there!

3. Make a will - I have been on Brent for years {that's what she said} that we need to make a's so terrible that we don't have one. Patty doesn't either and we both told each other our plans in case we both died with our spouses, so at least there's that {pitiful as it is}, but I definitely want to get something formalized sooner rather than later.

So there are my goals {big and small!} for 2016! Here's to a great year!!

These are really good goals!

I need to do SOMETHING with all my old pictures. I have so many and am literally doing nothing with them.
