Goals for 2014

-Post more often on this blog and my photography blog

-Give this blog layout a make over 

-Purchase a .com for this blog 

-Reach 700 likes on my Facebook page

-Complete furnishing and decorating family room. (We made some progress on this goal by purchasing two accent chairs, a canvas and a light fixture, but still need a coffee/end tables).  

-Create a big girl room for Evie

-Clear nursery closet/dressers by donating, selling and putting a few items in storage 

-Take the time to visit friends and possibly meet some other bloggers

-Spending 15 minutes a day relaxing in some way: bath, reading, trip alone to a store, etc. (I would say this ended up being a weekly goal rather than daily goal). 

-Learning to take better videos for personal use

-Continue to improve my skills with off camera flash

-Family camping trip once or twice this year

-Family cruise 

-Landscape our front yard. (We are hiring professionals this spring to get started). 

-Allow Chris to golf once a month. (He golfed about every other month). 

-Work on reading from the Bible each day. (I did a few devotionals, but I'm going to work more on the Bible this year). 

-Potty train Evangeline

-Keep Christopher on grade level for reading

-Expand our family late this year or next (not a baby this year, but start trying for another by the end of this year)

Here's my completed goals for 2013! 


  1. Fun goals! We want to expand our family end of this year too! I loved the three year spacing between X and L

    1. Nice! Yes, Evie will turn 3 in September. We'll probably start "trying" after that. Not rushing it though. May not happen till the following year and I'm fine with that. There would be a spacing of 4 years and that sounds good to me ;)

  2. Hopefully I can help you meet goal #4!

    1. Yes! Hoping we can meet up this year. Maybe Hershey Park?

  3. Does your last goal being crossed out mean that you've completed that goal?!?

  4. Looking at your completed list each year is so fun because you are so honest!
