2013 goals and bucket list – March edition

2013 goals

Here’s an update on how I’m doing with my 2013 goals and bucket list.

My 2013 goals:

  • Read through the Bible.  *hangs head* We are so very far behind.  So far behind that it seems insurmountable to get caught back up.  I think if we put our mind to it we still can, though.
  • Improve my posture.  Still in progress.  I’m much more aware of my posture and straighten up when I catch myself slumping, but unfortunately that is still more often than I’d like.  And honestly, sometimes I know I’m slouching but just can’t seem to muster up the effort and energy to sit up straight.  So yeah, this is still an ongoing thing.

My 2013 bucket list:

  • Make 72 hour emergency kits for our house and vehicles.
  • Learn how to make Mom’s Christmas cookies.
  • Take a photography class.
  • Sew quilted stockings.
  • Make another quilt. – Hoping to start on this over spring break.
  • Run a 5K – Well I definitely haven’t done this yet but I have been running once or so a week and am working (slowly) through the Couch to 5K program.
  • Make another scrapbook for my in-law’s. – I started one while on my scrapbook retreat (psst Liz…pretend you never read this and act surprised when I give it to you) but haven’t had time since I’ve been home to work on it.
  • Take more pictures of us together – Thanks to some friends taking impromptu pictures of us we actually got some good ones this month!

Other notable events:

  • I went on my first scrapbooking retreat – had a blast, made new friends, and got a ton of scrapbooking done.

Good thing I didn’t make a long list for this year since we’re 1/4 of the way through and I haven’t completed a single thing…

    Loved the pictures! And I never heard a thing about scrapbooks.

You've heard what I have to say...now I want to hear your thoughts!
