31 Goals is over

It’s that time of year again…my birthday.  I actually just finalized my list of goals for this year tonight.  Some of the goals are going to carry over from last year, ones that didn’t get completed or even started that I’d like to accomplish during this new year for me.  I’m thinking that after this year I might follow my friend and fellow 9/25er Lyndsey in setting more goals but for a longer time period (she’s doing the three years before turning 30).

Before I list the new goals, I’d like to take a moment and reflect on last year’s goals.  I’m not too disappointed in the goals that didn’t get completed because I did actually start most of them.  I’m very excited about the ones I did complete.  Reading 20 books was awesome because I read the Twilight series.  So excited I did.  The 20 movies was great because I watched some great movies, including The Lord of the Rings trilogy, which I probably would not have watched had it not been for the challenge of watching 20 new-to-me movies.  Mom & Scott were thrilled with their quilt, which was the 2nd quilt goal I had set.  Although late to start, my new job requires me to dress up.  So dressing more girly has kind of been happening. It’s weird to have a job where you actually have to think about your wardrobe (Genesis was either scrubs or a Genesis tee and I worked there for 6 years). The hosting the dinner party was awesome because it was actually a life goal of mine I sat years ago. Do you know which goal I was most excited about checking off the list?  Growing the pumpkins.  Yep.  After two years of failure, they finally grew.  They now decorate my front porch, my Mom’s house, my aunt’s house & my school library.  I’m hoping to at least get a pumpkin pie from them, if not canning some of the pumpkin as well.

Here’s our harvest from a couple weeks ago (we may actually have more waiting for us):
