11 in 2011 – New Year’s Goals

I came across this super cute blog carnival called 11 in 2011 and couldn’t help but to participate! What a great way to get 2011 off to a great bloggy start!

I’m not a huge fan of the term “resolutions” as we all know how long we tend to hold onto resolutions and it just seems to have a negative connotation. Am I alone in thinking that? Instead I like to use to the word goals! So here are some things that I would love to accomplish in 2011:


There is no need to rehash all of the my health goals when you can find them all listed here!


This one is a biggy and something that I have really wanted to do for years but 2011 is definitely going to be my year to succeed in finally reading through the Bible in a year. My friend Katie suggested this Bible reading plan so I’ve printed it out and I’m ready to go! Want to join me?


I love taking pictures and dream of having a nice fancy DSLR camera, like this Nikon, but until then I snap pictures with my snazzy Kodak EasyShare. But most of my pictures revolve around occasions – holidays, events, etc – but not really the day to day. Time seems to be going by so fast! Abby turned 20 months old this week and will be 2 before I know it and don’t want to miss a single minute so I plan on doing the 365 Project! I will take a picture a day in 2011! Maybe I can learn a thing or two about improving my photography skills too! If you would like to donate a Nikon to help that would be cool too!


I know this one is going to sound cheesy but I really want to define my own style in 2011. I feel like I live in ON t-shirts, jeans, and sneakers. I just don’t feel like its ME but at the same time I’m not sure what ME looks like. I’ve kind of bounced around and tried out different things but nothing has really seemed to fit and I’m talking clothes, hair, and makeup. If someone would like to call Stacy & Clinton for me, I would be thankful (LOL). But seriously, I really want to spend sometime this year focusing a little more on making me feel good about myself. Yesterday I think I made a step in the positive direction and discovered the store New York & Co and I am in love (we have an outlet not 15 min from here – yay!). I bought an outfit where I felt mature AND confident but still my age (anyone else around 30 have trouble shopping for clothes that aren’t make for a 18 yr old or 45 yr old?).  A picture will be forthcoming in my 365 project 🙂

P.S. I could really use your help if you have a minute to spare for a quick survey!

    Great goals! I am participating in the Project 365 as well!

    Thanks for the link and best of luck reading the Bible this year! I’ll be praying for you!

    I live in jeans and t-shirts, too. Finding clothes for my age is difficult too. I don’t want to look like a teeny bopper or a grandma… hence the t-shirts.

    Im am so with you on the ON shirts and jeans. This year I will be slimming down and might have to buy some girly clothes! gasp 😉 Instead of 365 Im doing a 52 week project. New photo every week! And theres nothing wrong with an Easy share! I have one 🙂 And if you just find some good light and turn off the flash, you will notice instantly better results!!

    actually i think a lot of clothes out there are too old lady-ish for my 55 year old mom! but yes i really struggle with clothes. more work stuff than casual. i guess i’m more “kiddish” in my casual style.

    wooTT! for an NY & Co outlet close by!!
