My 29 Goals in 2010 - Continued

Happy 2011 Friends!  I hope everyone had a great New Year's and is excited about 2011, it's gonna be a great year!

So I shared my first two goals here and now I'm going to share the rest with you now because I need to get started on my 30 Goals in 2011!

Goal 3 - Take 365 photos (photo a day).  Didn't happen, I think I made it to the end of February and then I just kind of stopped.  I will be trying this one again and I'm hoping that my new Nikon will motivate me to follow through with it this year!

Goal 4 - Open up an Etsy store.  Nope didn't do this one either, probably won't be adding this to the 2011 list because instead of opening up an Etsy store I became a Thirty-One Consultant!! I love it! 

Goal 5 - Learn how to sew.  No, this is turning into a list of things I didn't do in 2010, haha!  I would love to learn to sew, my mom used to sew and she made me the most beautiful easter dresses. 

Goal 6 - Attend 2 weddings.  YES!  I did this, attended two good friends weddings one in March and the other in July. 

Goal 7 - Read 12 books.  The idea was to read a book a month.  I read The Host, On Folly Beach, The Second Short Life of Bree Tanner, Dead in the Family, Chasing Harry Winston, The Last Song, Firefly Lane (started but didn't finish), Eat Pray Love (started but didn't finish, The Hunger Games, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (still reading), and one that I can't remember the name of??  So I didn't quite get there, but I was close!

Goal 8 - Learn 24 new recipes.  Okay so I got 23 new recipes.  I'll share them with you in another post.  But a lot of them were the Pioneer Woman.

Goal 9 - Make everything in the Pioneer Woman Cookbook.  Didn't happen but I made at least 5 or 6 things.

Goal 10 - Swim in the ocean.  YES!  Did this over the summer in Virginia Beach.

Goal 11 - Go to Scotland.  Yes, we went to Scotland in February to surprise Hubby's dad for his 60th birthday, it was a great trip!

Goal 12 - Plant herbs in the garden. I planted Basil, Rosemary, and Lemon Balm. : )  I plan on planting a lot more this spring.  I want to do Parsley, Chives, Thyme, and a few others.

Goal 13 - Go to Key West.  Hubby and I got invited to a good friends wedding in Key West and we were planning on going but with this still being the first year in our new house we really wanted to spend the time and money on that so we didn't do Key West and while I'm sad we didn't get to see our friends getting married I'm really glad that we saved the money and were able to spend time at the house.

Goal 14 - Host a Party at the house.  Halloween Party and Hubby's Birthday Party and a Thirty One party!  I was all about the parties! : )

Goal 15 - Go to the movies at midnight.  Yes, hubby and I went to see It's Complicated at a 10:30 showing so technically we were at the movies at midnight and it was fun!

Goal 16 - Hang our Wedding Pictures up - Haven't done this yet, but we have started printing and framing them!

Goal 17 - Refurbish an old piece of furniture - I'm not really sure where this one came from but no I haven't done this.  I'll work on it in 2011

Goal 18 - Decorate and paint my nook.  Long story that I will share with you in another post.

Goal 19 - Give away 20 pieces of clothing I don't wear anymore.  Yes I have given away a lot more than that and have a big bag that's still accumulating as we speak.

Goal 20 - Buy new shoes for work.  Yes, I bought a cute pair of tan pumps from Aldo that I love!

Goal 21 - Have a Harry Potter weekend where I watch all the Harry Potter movies back to back.  No I didn't do this, but does watching Harry Potter whenever it was on TV count?

Goal 22 - Take my nieces and nephews to the movies.  Didn't do this one, this will be on my list for 2011, maybe not the movies in particular but take them somewhere fun, maybe a museum....

Goal 23 - Commission an artist to paint my wedding dress.  Haven't done this yet, but I've found a lady on Etsy that I'm going to get to do this!

Goal 24 - Write a handwritten Thank You note to someone.  Yes, I did this more than a few times, I think it's such a nice gesture that people have gotten out of the habit of doing.

Goal 25 - Send out picture Christmas cards.  No we didn't do this, I was hoping to but in the end just ended up buying some regular ones.

Goal 26 - Go somewhere I've never been before - Yes, did this went to Dallas (for work)

Goal 27 - Have a mother / daughter day.  Yes, took my mom to the Outer Banks for her birthday and had a whole weekend together!

Goal 28 - Get all of my Christmas shopping done before December.  No way did that happen, I wish.  I always end up doing most of my shopping in December. 

Goal 29 - Get Pregnant.  Unfortunately not, but still trying and praying that 2011 is the year!

So there you have it.  My 2010 goals and the few I actually acheived, haha.  I'll share my 2011 list once I get it all compiled. 

Does anyone else have goals for 2011? : )
