Last year on December 31st, I made a list of 12 things that I wanted to do in 2012. I was excited, anxious and nervous for the year to come, but I knew that I wanted to do BIG things! Since 2013 is right around the corner, I thought this was the perfect time to reflect on what I accomplished!
In June (at the six-month mark,) I updated y'all on my progress, but here's a quick round up of the whole list!
How I did: 12 To-Dos in 2012:
1. Have an amazing spring break: Check!
I spent a full 8 days enjoying the Florida sunshine in New Smyrna Beach and Jacksonville!
2. Exercise more: Check!
I've been going to the gym almost every day after work, and I feel amazing! Go me! I'm even signing up for a 5k this coming March!
3. Graduate college with honors: No, but I was close!
4. Get a job: Check!
1. I work for a wedding planner as an Assistant Wedding Coordinator to some beautiful southern brides!
2. I work full time at my alma mater, Appalachian State University as the Assistant the the University Registrar.
5. Live on my own: Check!
As of this afternoon, I am moved into my new apartment! More to come on this very soon!
6. Get a dog: Absolutely!
In June, I was blessed with the most beautiful dog that I've ever seen! I am head over paws for my sweet Paisley Ann!
7. Read More: Check
I finished quite a few books already this year, and I'm working on the Harry Potter series as we speak! Plus, I got two new books for Christmas!
8. Buy a crock pot & learn to cook with it: Check!
My sweet friends Kathy & Bob bought me one of these as a graduation gift. I haven't had a chance to use it yet, but it's in my new apartment ready to go!
9. Send out my own Christmas cards: Check!
My Mom is a Shutterfly expert, and designed theses in about 10 minutes. I loved sending my own cards for the first time, and hearing how much people enjoyed receiving them!
10. Be able to buy REAL Christmas presents: Check!
This year, I was able to give some of my favorite Christmas gifts ever! Two of my favorites were my Mom's new Coach bag and a bear tumbler for my Dad.
11. Invest in a nice piece of jewelry: Check!
I received a beautiful Pandora bracelet for graduation, and I love it so much! Each charm represents something special to me. The best part, I didn't expect it at all!
12. Go to Disney World: Semi-check!
Though my family decided to go to the beach for a week instead of going to Disney, some close friends of mine did go, and brought me back an adorable Minnie sweatshirt! So until I make it back to this magical place, I'm living vicariously through them.
10 out of 12 goals...not too shabby!
It makes me so happy to see the goals that I've accomplished over the past year. I plan on doing the same type of list for 2013. Goals seem so much more attainable when they're written down and staring at you in the face!
Do you accomplish your goals for 2012?
As always, Have a Sweet Day!
