2011 Goals Revisited


Here are the goals I set for myself at the beginning of the year.  I accomplished three out of the five.  I am quite pleased, actually.  You can read my original post here.

My 2011 Goals:



1.     Fluffing my daughter's dorm room:  check!  You can read all about my daughter's dorm room here.

2.     Converting our living room to an art studio:  check!  I am enjoying it so much, and so is Shelley!  It is one of the smartest things we have done to our home.  Here is a link to the post about our studio.

3.     Learn how to bake brioche:  epic.  fail.....   I did not accomplish this goal, but I must say in my defense that my doctor put me on a gluten free diet, so it seemed almost cruel to learn how to bake it.

4.     Remodel our master bathroom:  Not.  Even.  Close.... but we have not had the time this year for such a major project.  Maybe it will be a goal for 2012!


5.     Decoupage a large vase for our coffee table:  Check!  You can read about this fun project here.

I have not written any goals for 2012 yet.  I have a few ideas, and I think I shall think about them next week.  Do you set goals or make resolutions every year?

Until next time...

Blessings!

  6. Well, I'd say you did a great job of accomplishing the tasks on your list! Maybe there's an alternative grain from which to make a tasty brioche. :) Or, maybe you've lost a few pounds, feel better and brioche is no match for that! I do look forward to reading your new list, which reminds me: I need to figure out MY list, too!

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  7. I used to set goals..but learned to take it one day at a time. In my long term memory bank, I have stored a few things I would like to do..I think about them every now and then..but they long to be just thoughts! Wishing you a great New Year to accomplish either new goals or the ones from the past!..Merry Christmas!

  9. Ricki Jill I'm glad you posted this list as I had missed some of your accomplishments while I was away. I was especially glad to read about your studio that you finished and have been enjoying. It looks fantastic and is such a good use of your space. I'm glad you are a neat-nick though as it is quite open to the rest of the house.
