Well, let’s see how I did…

On my list of crazy goals for my list of 27 things to do before I turn 28 list. So I guess that means that my birthday is today! First of all I think I did fairly well and learned quite a lot over the past year. I also planning on making a few changes in my next list for next year which I will unveil in a few days. I managed to get 20 of the 27 things crossed off! Even though some of the things didn't happen, I still am proud that I got that much finished up!

(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

The goals:
1. Read 1 book a month (so I only made it half way in this goal, I just didn't make the time to get this one done)
2. Blog 3 times a week (along with introducing new features) (Again i went with the ebbs and flows of either not making the time, effort, or that I felt like nothing interesting was happening that would be worth reading)
3. Scrapbook twice a month (this was horrible, i didn't make time for it and I just didn't really think about it)
4. Bake once a month a new recipe (either bread, cookies or some other yummy thing) (i did make some cupcakes and cookies and cakes, so lots of baking occurred- I think that we can draw the conclusion that I like sweets)
5. Make 2 full size quilts 
6. Use up my fabric stash even the little pieces I have been saving (I didn't really make a dent in it but I have been using up lots of randoms)
7. Try something new (re-entered the dating world, super scary and was a wacky experience, but in the end was a good time plus a learning experience)
8. Go bowling
9. Teach more sewing classes using my own patterns (didn't really happen again i blame my time management skills)
10. Go to the driving range and practice my golf swing (my best friend surprised me and took me out to a local driving range it was a blast!)
11. Tackle my sewing work-in-progress list (the list is growing in a good way but I still managed to cross a lot off over the last year)
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 (this almost always happened so exciting!)
17. Go hiking
18. Take a new family photo of X and me (we have a few from our adventures that are going to work)
19. Comment more on all of the blogs I read (still playing catch up but am getting better!)
20. Increase the distance in my morning/afternoon runs (I have really got back into the walking/running routine and I am getting a lot better!)
21. Going swimming when it is really warm out (totally went swimming even though it was in an indoor pool)
22. Play a game of tennis (yesterday, talk about last minute planning, but we played! it was cold but I think once it warms up, it will be an awesome way to burn off a bunch of calories)
23. Go to thrift stores and yard sales more (went to a few looking for costume stuff for the little man)
24. Make some kits to sell in my online shop (will happen eventually
25. Open my own shop on line selling my patterns (in the works)
26. Attend Spring Market in Salt Lake City with a booth selling my patterns
27. Have a booth at a local craft fair (probably won't happen this year but next year for sure!)
