December Bucket List: the finish line!

December 30, 2010

1. Give up sweets for a week. Check! 12/4-12/10 I was completely sweet/dessert free.

2. Lose 5 pounds. Epic Fail! I lost 4 pounds before Christmas and after Christmas, I’m right back at the beginning πŸ™

3. Get a massage. I didn’t get this one accomplished but that’s ok…it wasn’t that important really.

4. Read a Harry Potter book. Also didn’t have time to do this one. I wanted to tho but time just didn’t allow.

5. Send out Photo Christmas Cards. Check! I can only hope everyone has their’s by now!

6. Bake cupcakes. Check! I baked cupcakes for a church choir potluck Saturday, the 11th and also for Christmas.

7. Book 3 photo sessions. Check!

8. Blog everyday this month. Check! Very successful I might add! I loved having time for it, reminded me why I have this blog in the first place.

9. Actually celebrate New Year’s Eve with Neil. I’m still not sure how it happened but Neil is actually off work today AND tomorrow! That means for the first time in a looooong time, we get to celebrate together! We’ve been asked to a few get togethers but we might decide to just hang out alone. I’m just so happy to spend tomorrow night with him, no matter what we do!

10. Sponsor a child who won’t have a Christmas otherwise. Check! Read all about it here.

    Yay for all the wonderful victories!!!

    I think we all gained a little more weight after Christmas, or the whole month of December. don’t feel bad. I gained 2 pounds between Thanksgiving and Christmas. I got scolded at Curves….Anyway, you can do it and get back to where you were. I have faith in you!!

    I got your card and LOVE it. It now lives on my fridge with all my other wonderful family and friends.

    Girl, HP book 1 is super short, so go grab it. You could finish it in a few hours and you’re world will be CHANGED. πŸ™‚

    Also, massage. Amazing. I don’t get them often but I wish I could. Another life changer. Make time for it in 2011!!

    Congrats on your other achievements, girl. πŸ™‚ You should be proud!
