27 Things before I turn 28 Check-in…

So I totally didn't remember to post a little recap/check-in of my new goals. I really don't think I made a ton of progress during November and am hoping to make a little progress in December.

(items in orange are the status of each goal, so I can see my progress and figure out what I need to work on more. I want to make sure that I keep up with them and here are the rules/guides I created for myself:

1. try and accomplish all the goals in one years time
2. complete a monthly recap on the blog at the end of each month
3. document goal progress with a photo or a photo for completion (*this one is new)
4. add a page to a scrapbook about the goal (* I think I will make a little mini-book to document the process of completing my goals and this will also help with goal #3.)

The goals:
1. Read 1 book a month (I have spent some time catching up on my magazine reading and I did manage to pick up a new Murder, She Wrote book that I just need to start. On a side note: I have been busy reading to X before he goes to bed and we are currently reading several different stories and a few chapter books.)
2. Blog 3 times a week (along with introducing new features) (slowly making a comeback in this one, my schedule is so crazy that I really have to work on a few posts in advance in order to accomplish that)
3. Scrapbook twice a month (I have been busy making tags for the cookies but no actual scrapbooking)
4. Bake once a month a new recipe (either bread, cookies or some other yummy thing) (totally have conquered this one this month, with several new cookie recipes!!)
5. Make 2 full size quilts
6. Use up my fabric stash even the little pieces I have been saving
7. Try something new (like how I attended a Mixology class last month)
8. Go bowling (a plan is in the works for that one)
9. Teach more sewing classes using my own patterns
10. Go to the driving range and practice my golf swing
11. Tackle my sewing work-in-progress list (trying to get a few things crossed of it)
12. Take Xavier on an adventure
13. Go through my closet and do some much needed purging and updating
14. Participate in one online swap like a pincushion, pillow, or urban home goods
15. Go all out with the decorating and activities around the holidays (like christmas, easter, etc.)
16. Take a new self-portrait once a month (I took one with X during the first snow of the season!)
17. Go hiking
18. Take a new family photo of X and me (I really am working on getting more photos of the two of us together, I <3 them!!)
19. Comment more on all of the blogs I read
20. Increase the distance in my morning/afternoon runs
21. Going swimming when it is really warm out
22. Play a game of tennis
23. Go to thrift stores and yard sales more (in order to find new things for photo props, household decor, etc…)
24. Make some kits to sell in my online shop
25. Open my own shop on line selling my patterns (working on this at the moment and my goal deadline just don't seem to work out, so I will just make sure to get it done sooner than later-lol)
26. Attend Spring Market in Salt Lake City with a booth selling my patterns
27. Have a booth at a local craft fair
