Now that we have finished the month of January,
I thought it would be fun to evaluate how I am doing
with my 2014 Goals!
Home Improvement/Decorating Goals:
The Kitchen – no progress yet – except if you count all the inspiration photos I pinned on Pinterest – (Kitchen Board)!
The Kids Bathroom – umm, nothing yet.
The Laundry Room – well, since that room has been filled with wet boots and snow clothes for the past few weeks, I haven’t even attempted any projects in there.
My Office – ok, here we have some progress! Although, I actually took one step forward and two steps back!
I organized my shelves with new Pottery Barn baskets…
But had to throw out my two palms due to spider mites!
Now I have to do something with those corners!
And I would have had something very exciting happening today if there wasn’t an ice storm. My plantation shutters are ready – but the installer had to reschedule to next week! Boo hoo!
Get Rid of Stuff – I have done really well here with donations and just throwing things out. I’m still working on this though.
Overall Blog Goals:
Social Media – I have been spending way too much time on Instagram, but I only post here and there on Twitter and Facebook.
Giveaways – none yet, but I did do a review/makeover of GE Light bulbs – HERE.
Comments – I still haven’t been able to reply back right away. I still have to work on that one.
Frequency – ok, so I am blaming all the snow on this one! Having the kids home from school so many days is really cutting into my blogging time!
Photography – well, I haven’t exactly pulled out that new camera…but I have improved some of my pictures with that fabulous new app –http://www.waterlogueapp.com/.!
If you haven’t tried this yet, you must!
I hope you don’t get as addicted as I am!
Exercise – I swear, I have been meaning to do this!!! Does emptying the dishwasher count? Ughh..I know, I know…I really have to make this a priority!
Computer- YES! I have finally mastered the new computer and have gotten comfortable with Windows 8. I don’t love it, but I can handle it now. I just need to move a few more files from the old computer and this goal is complete! Woo hoo!
Family – Well, my husband and I went out to dinner Saturday but it wasn’t alone. We really needed to see our old friends though, so I think this counts toward date night.
And Rosie always manages to get in on the action!
Travel – oh I wish! Does walking to the mailbox count? We haven’t planned anything yet but are thinking about a getaway to Vermont over the next month or so. We haven’t decided on our annual summer trip but are considering a long weekend in Newport, Rhode Island. I think with the possible kitchen renovation, we won’t be able to do a Caribbean trip this year. 🙁
So, I haven’t accomplished a huge number of things from my original goal list but we are only a month into the new year. I can’t possibly do them all at once – I want to at least save some for other months!
How are your 2014 goals coming along?
