My 2011 Goals

I've set goals for 2011!

{I did the same last year, but due to things out of my control...as well as a little bit of "I'd rather just sit here today," I did not accomplish many of them!}

Here's to better luck this go around! ;)

1. Learn how to use my brand new Cricut Cake!
My fabulous family all pitched in to give me this for Christmas! I haven't broken it out of the box yet, but I am soooo excited to get to know this machine!

2. Move my laundry room INSIDE!
Yes, you read that correct...I have to walk outside into this little yucky room filled with bugs and lent to wash my family's clothes. I LOATHE that room. I have from the moment we moved in - 4 years later, I can't take it anymore. I'm bringing it in! I.am.beyond.excited. Whoo Hoo! I can not wait to have a cute laundry room!

3. Plan my son's 2nd Birthday
Ugh, I can not get over the fact that my baby boy will be 2 in just a few weeks! :( I am sad...and happy...but, mostly sad that he is growing up! He's becoming a big boy way.too.fast. I am looking forward to the party, though. I have some fun plans in store for my lil' *tractor* enthusiast!

4. Finish my son's big boy room!
I have decided on a theme and started moving his things in...it's going to be awesome! Perfect for a little {ahem, I mean BIG} boy! But, for now, I'm keeping all details a secret! ;)

5. Take my son for his first real haircut!
Okay, I'll admit I've been a little silly about his hair! I guess because I can't control the fact that he's going to grow tall, he's going to starting talking like a big boy and he's going to become more of a daddy's boy rather than love on me all day, I decided I would hold on to the very last thing I could. I have not cut his hair since birth...well, other than a slight trim to keep his bangs out of his eyes. I have been picked on, laughed at and told "it wasn't a big deal," but I just couldn't do it. And although I still don't want to...and although I'll probably ball my eyes out...I will take him this year to get a professional hair cut. {tear}

6. Turn our den into the master bedroom!
Our house has 2 large rooms...one I call "The Formal Living Room" and one "The Den." The den is where we spend most of our time. {It's where the computer is as well as the t.v.} The formal is hardly used, except for the occasional get together. Well, the formal is just too pretty not to enjoy! So, we're moving the t.v in there and the den {which is MUCH bigger than our room now - plus it has a FIREPLACE!} will become our master bedroom! Yay!

7. Get my nails done more often!
Santa left the greatest gift in my stocking this year! It was a gift certificate to a local salon and spa for a day to myself. Ahhh...it was fabulous! I had my nails done as well as {a much needed} hair cut and color. You know what? I really like having my nails done...it's been years since I've had them and I love 'em! So, one of my goals for 2011 is to make a little more time for myself...and with that time, keep myself up! :)

8. Last, but in no way is this least, I'm going to set aside some time each week to read more of my Bible. I slacked a little in that department during 2010, so I'm going to try to be better this year!

2010 was a rough year for my family, so I'm really looking forward to what 2011 has in store!
