2011, Let's get these resolutions on!

a very happy new year from Sam and I
So... my new year's was great.  I drank some champagne, wore something sparkly, kissed my man at midnight, and overall had a pretty good time.  I have the day off, which I am so excited about!  But first, let's talk new year's resolutions.  What kind of goals does one make after not shopping for a whole year?  I'm not going to lie, once I lost my job, a lot of my goals I had set for myself flew out the window...  So I will carry those on into the new year. In no particular order, here are my new year's resolutions (crossing fingers that I can keep them).

Be nicer.  I am going to give this one a shot.  I have been reading Gunn's Golden Rules by Tim Gunn and he makes a lot of points in this book about how being nice to people is a good thing.  We all know I can be a little snarky, so this year I'm going to try being nice to people.  Unless, someone deserves a good talking to, then I will kindly and plainly say why I think they are mean, rude, etc.  I of course, still have standards.

Get organized.  Really, the last frontiers of organization go to my sewing nook and my dresser.  My sewing nook is a disaster.  I would like some shelving or bins to hide stuff while I haven't gotten around to it. 

A six pack.  Yes this sounds silly but, I know I can do it.  This past year I have slowly been trying to get back into better shape.  This includes eating less pizza, doing more cardio.  Even if I just get a light six pack, I think I will be happy. 

Go visit.  I definitely want to take more trips to visit friends and family this year.  I want to go back to New York.  I will need to make a trip to Portland.  Sam and I want to take a trip to Austin.  This probably means I should also start saving some money.

That's all.  They are a little ambiguous, yes but I'll make tiny little goals to help me achieve the overall bigger picture.  For now, I think I'm going to lay in bed for a little longer.

PS- My dress is vintage, and AWESOME!


  1. Yay for New Years resolutions! I especially like the one where you're going to travel more. woot woot!

    I myself, have a million resolutions to write down before I forget them! Ah! where did the time go?? I can't believe that it's already the 3rd.

  2. after all that, I am still stuck on "I have the day off." I can't believe you are leaving me hanging today. Lame. Good luck on all of your resolutions. I still plan to be snarky, so you can live vicariously though me. :)

  3. being nice should be on my list, too! thanks for the inspiration, and good luck on your resolutions!

  4. I love setting goals for the year! I finished mine today and I need to print them out and keep them in front of me.

    Do you have a book goal this year? I always set a number of books I want to read.

  5. this is a great list an i hope you accomplish each goal :)

  6. I like the being nice goal. I try to do that on the regular as well!

  7. your dress is pretty badass. perfect for new years. hope all of you goals work out for ya!

    ok, the being nice, I tried that it didn't work for me, but you can definitely make it work. Getting organized that is a big step for you but I think your up for the challenge. The rest will be easy and a no brainer, especially coming to austin cuz you already have a place to stay.
