reviewing my 2011 goals

i stumbled upon my goals for 2011 and was curious to see how i did.  I commented below each goal in italics. 

{1} learn to sew - I know the basics, but want to sew a pillow sham & learn how to do the basics
**not accomplished, but am currently taking sewing lessons!

{2} only go to the grocery store once a week - odd goal, but I ALWAYS end up having to go several times & it takes so much time & energy.
**i did pretty well with this. i still go about only once a week - goal accomplished!

{3} live a neater/cleaner life. okay, totally not measurable, but I have noticed that I have this cycle of my house/car/etc gets messy as I am busy during the week & then it takes me all day Saturday to clean it up. I want to figure out how to live a more organized day to day schedule where I am not letting everything pile up.
**too hard to measure. i am still messy. 

{4} read a book a month - could be a spiritual book or a book for fun, but once a month
**sadly no. get on the ball katie. 2012 has been better so far. 

{5} get into two more local boutiques with my button jewelry
*added one in 2011...hopefully i will get the courage to ask more soon 

{6} exercise 3x a week - enough said.
*no comment

{7} continue to blog on a semi-daily basis
*no comment. ouch. 

{8} journal & remember what God has done - my friend reminded me this week how important that is
*somewhat accomplished. wish i did more. 

{9} redecorate our master bedroom - we love the colors, but Philip wants to build a new bed with  storage & I love that idea.
*mostly accomplished. we like our bedroom a lot more than before and can fit all of our clothes in one room. (our closets are tinnnnny, so this was a major accomplishment.)

How did you do on your last year goals?


  1. We have a lack of closet space as well. Will you show us the bed with storage?

  2. Hey Ashley,

    I should have mentioned it, but we decided not to build a storage bed. We started looking at IKEA beds and they were so much more affordable than the cost it would have been to build a bed. We just ended up boxing up summer clothes and selling any clothes we weren't wearing on ebay or giving them away.

    Sorry! Wish I could be of more help!
