Each year I make a list of goals for myself that are not so much “New Year’s Resolutions” but actual goals that I’d like to accomplish that year.

This year I tried to stay practical but still force myself to get out of my ‘norm’ and change things up a bit. If you know me at all you know I’m frumpy at best and a home body. But this year is already starting to look good and I can actually say I’ve crossed a few things off the list already.

So here’s a reminder of what my goals were.


Again, this is a work in progress but I’m happy that I’m getting there and proud of myself for it.

1. Wear a skirt/dress at least twice a month- This wasn’t as dreadful as I though and I’ve found out that I actually like them- Go figure!! I’ve worn a skirt or dress (maxi dresses are awesome) at least twice each month. Turns out I am a girl after all! 

2. Buy jeans and bras that actually fit- Let’s just say I HAD to buy new sizes lately  (giddy with excitement) see #3

3.THIS IS MY BIG ONE- lose weight to where people will actually notice. This past Saturday (Mar. 29) Brianna celebrated her 17th birthday and I wanted to show you a picture of me last year on her Birthday and one from this year!

4. I can definitely say people are “learning “ about my little curbside frontier and I now have business cards to hand out at my furniture parties. Remember lots of little baby steps can equal one BIG step in the right direction.

5. Sammy and I took a small vacation to Austin for my birthday and we had such a great time!! It was needed and we had a blast. Can’t wait for our next get away!

So that’s where I am to date. I’m pretty happy that I had some updates but even more, I hope I inspire you to do something you never thought you would or could for that matter. Lord knows Chocolate used to be my best friend! I never thought I’d be this proud of myself (but I am).
