Goals for 2011

I've decided to make goals for myself for the new year. They really can't fall under the category of "resolution" since they aren't really things I need to change, although I do have few resolutions too.

11 Goals for 2011
  1. Find a dental hygiene job!
  2. Find an apartment/house for me and Phil after finding that DH job!
  3. Learn to quilt - by year's end I would like to have finished at least 3 quilts: My t-shirt quilt, a baby quilt (for my new little cousin due May 1st!), and a quilt for me and Phil.
  4. Continue eating healthy and working out.
  5. Use my crockpot.
  6. Plan mine and Phil's wedding and have fun doing it!
  7. Make tooth-fairy pillows for my little cousins/nephews.
  8. Get a kitty.
  9. Continue to read for pleasure as often as I can.
  10. Start paying off my loans.
  11. Continue to blog!
  • Begin going to sleep earlier and waking up earlier - This will be a hard one to start and I'm afraid that it won't happen until I find a job I need to get up for.
  • Start writing down what I eat everyday - I was doing this really well for the first part of my weight-loss program I joined at the Y, but lately I haven't at all.
  • Be more patient.
  • Hang out more with my friends!

Last year my resolution was to call my family/friends more often and get over my phone phobia. This resolution didn't turn out too well cause I never did. Bad Mariah! I hope this year's goals/resolutions turn out better than last year's!

I've also added the 11 Goals for 2011 to the left sidebar so you can track their progress with my other lists!

  • Do you have any goals/resolutions for the new year?
  • How did you do with last years resolutions?

Sounds like you have some good goals. I prefer goals to resolutions.

I LOVE the cute idea of having 11 goals for 2011 :-) Your goals are totally realistic and I KNOW you can accomplish them!!

Make sure you post about the tooth fairy pillows when you make them.. that sounds so cute!!

These are great goals and resolutions. Knowing you, I have no doubt you will accomplish most of them, if not all. ;)

I don't even want to THINK about my resolutions from last year. Hahaha!

If you learn how to make a t shirt quilt PLEASE let me know how because I am dying to get my old shirts made into one but no one I know has any clue how to do it!

I think one of your goals should be to post about planning your wedding. It would be fun to get excited about the date right along with you!
