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 ๐Ÿ™

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 Yearโ€™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 wonโ€™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. ๐Ÿ™‚

    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. ๐Ÿ™‚ You should be proud!
