#WEverb11 - Day 11: Try

Day 11: Try
What 12 new things do you want to do/accomplish in 2012?
Contributed by Kimba []

I love lists like this. Simple, but so great for deciding what I want to focus on for the coming year. Last year, it was eleven things. I kept up with some of the eleven throughout the year, but failed with others. I may keep both that list and this list and use them as guides for what I want to do in 2012.

1.) Read more books and possibly join a book club. - For this one I was inspired by both Bella and Caitlin. I love to read books, but this year with the internet and my blog addiction, reading has kinda fallen by the way side. It might have been that I just haven't found the right books, but I don't think I have been making it a priority. I think find a book club would be a great way to meet new people and read awesome books.

2.) Practice yoga more regularly either in formal classes or at home.

3.) Take more pictures. - I know a lot of people are trying to take less pictures since they feel like it cuts into their actual living of life, but I would like to have one or two pictures from each event we go to. Just for memories sake.

4.) Bake more often. - This isn't necessarily good for the waist line, but there is something meditative about putting together just the right amount of ingredients and make something delicious. I can also share goodies with coworkers to share in the yummy goodness so that it isn't just The Hubs and I packing on the pounds.

5.) Make parent wedding albums. Two years late, but better late than never.

6.) Take a cooking class.

7.) Participate in more STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) Outreach events.

8.) To be more loving. - I get grumpy very easily and usually my poor husband takes the brunt of it.

9.) Take The Pup on more walks.

10.) Finish hallway picture project with Wedding Pictures - ala Bower Power

11.) Clean out garage (for reals this time.) - I will need some support from The Hubs on this.

12.) To stay calm. - This is an ongoing thing I'd like to accomplish that thus far I have not been to successful at. I typically go from happy to crying in 10 seconds flat if something around me goes not as I expected. I talk to myself and work myself up into a frenzy.


Are you participating in #WEverb11? If not, go here for more info! It's an awesome way to reflect on last year and you'll meet tons of new people in the process! :-)


  1. Oh, I love this! I missed yesterday's prompt (taking a respite/mini family reunion) and now that I've read yours... I think I'll get started on my own 2012 Goal list. :-)

    THANK YOU! Glad to find you today via #reverb11

  2. I have so may on the list I would like to try/continue, but the one I'm just going to zero in on is #12. I really, really need to do this one!

  3. Be more loving...we could all use that. Thanks for the reminder :)
