Happy Birthday to my blog! Goals update

Can you believe it's been a year since I've started this blog? Either can I! I have learned so much.

You may have noticed that I haven't talked about my New Year's Resolutions in a while. I have to be honest, I think I bit off a lot more than I can chew so I'll give you a bit of an update on this now:

Change up my iPod in the Jeep. I have been really trying with this one. Bright Eyes in currently in the Jeep but the Honda houses the Wilco Sasquatch show MP3. It might take me removing Wilco from my ipod to listen to other stuff.

Attempt one craft project a month. haven't really done much of this. oops.

Cook or bake one recipe a week from my stash of cookbooks. Once my CSA came, we've been really trying to use recipes from Everyday Food more often or just things we come up with. Will pick this up back in the fall.

I will attempt to make homemade gnocchi and tamales.
Not done yet.

I try to attempt making different varieties of homemade breads. Warmer weather means not baking bread as much. Will pick back up in the fall.

Get outside with my family once a week. Definitely getting outside more!

Get healthy. I have lost 15 pounds in the past year but I do need to step up the working out. It's been slow but I'm OK with that.

Work on my green plan. Thanks for Practically Green, I am working on my 2011 Green Plan

Save money. $0 money saved. Sigh, must get on this one

Ask for experiences, not gifts.  Took my husband to Salem for his birthday!

Buy/sell used more used items. Have been pretty successful with this one. Got a weed wacker!

Play with my son more.  Successful with this one. A three year old WILL keep you busy.

Date night once a month with my husband. Need to work on this one. Our new pre-school does offer a date night sitting and we have taken advantage of it.

Be grateful. Helps keep the negativity away.

Figure out my career path. Still working on it.

Engage more in social media I won't be going to BlogHer and my husband and I agree, I need to carve out time to write. I have tons of ideas but I'm just not putting fingers to the keyboard on them.

Buy less stuff. Really doing good with this one!

Organize my closets. need to get on this one

Attend a music festival with my family. Does Munch and Music count?

All right, things aren't as bad as I thought they would be. I am going to revise my green goals. Some of them, like buy a used car, won't happen this year but since I make the rules, I can do what I want, right? I think the lesson learned ... maybe pick a few goals and stick to it. Right?
