goals-not resolutions 2012

It has been another great year.  I thought I would update our 2012 Year Goals – So here is what we were able to accomplish =)

(I know the year isn’t quite finished… but it was on my mind, so I thought I would capitalize!)


Aspirations/Goals for 2012 (You can find the Original Post here)

  • One bigger/international trip: Went with our graduated seniors to Poland (look at the Categories to the left and select “Poland” for all posts)
  • Be debt free (except the house) =)
  • Own a boat – a girl can dream right?  REALITY CHECK – if we do purchase a boat, you can be sure that it will be one that is well loved. – Close enough.. Mike started working for MasterCraft… so we’ll be on a boat soon enough!!!
  • Weekend trip with friends – how does this look?! We’ve accomplished plenty of other fun activities with friends (christmas party, halloween, trips with the students, family visiting and so much more!) And mike and I went to one of these hiking places together
  • Cultivate a more sustainable gardenwe had a great garden this year, loads of berries and jalapenos.  Sustainable? not sure, but we’re improving our methods.
  • Home improvement projects – re-carpet upstairs or install hardwood downstairs, finish replacing windows on the back of the house  this last project will just squeek in during 2012 and the painting will be finished shortly thereafter
  • New Jobs!  (I didn’t write this in the original post… as it might be a bit weird)  – We both were looking to find new jobs in 2012.  Mike was a bit under challenged and yet over challenged at his job.  I was looking for a new position in my field of study (marketing).  We both have found new places to call home and are quite happy!

Didn’t quite get to it all…

What a wonderful year.  Soon I’ll be posting new goals for the new year.  We have a few more hours of car rides in front of us to review 2012, check up on our marriage, figure out “what we did in 2012 we never thought we would do,” set new goals/aspirations for 2013 and dream together.

  1. Wonderful update! No doubt a few fitness goals were met! Sherri and i have been to the fireflies the last two years. We have found that Reserving a camping site (see above!) at the beginning of the year is important since they fill up fast. The trolley ride up is so crowded and they have limited the passes each year. Camping is very convenient. Just walk out of the camp ground, check out the fireflies (everyone should experience this event as it only happens in two places on this globe!) and head back to your site and prepare the smores!!! We can give you more details about planning in person.

    • Thanks! We had a ton of fitness goals met for sure this year. I’ll post about those soon. It’s hard to capture it all into one post but I’ll do my best. We really want to go see the fireflies. Can’t wait to hear all the ins and outs of “doing it right” from you soon.
