More for 2011

As we can all observe from my numbers, 2010 was a pretty sad year for my blog. [And for those that followed blog #2, this sadness is clearly evident. My lesson learned: keeping up with two blogs is hard and time consuming. So I'm letting that one go.] I have already decided that part of 2011 will be to blog more and to take more pictures. But I'm not getting into 2011 goals just yet. First, let's revisit 2010.

For the most part, I think 2010 was a great year. I accomplished some big things in addition to most everything on my written list of goals for 2010. [As can be seen here]. Last year was the year of the house, the cruise, the sealing, the haircut, the weightloss. The weightloss was epic. Even if that was the only significant thing I did last year, I'd still chalk it up as one of the most successful years of my life.

As it goes thus far, 2011 is looking to be a monumental year, maybe even more than last. My goal list reflects some of the potential greatness 2011 will contain. So let's see...

[in no particular order of importance]

~ Deliver my child on July 31 [Harry Potter's birthday]
~ Make separate to-do list for all things baby and keep it under 100 items
~ Make separate to-do list for everything that needs to happen before Jericho gets deployed
~ Buy a bike
~ Visit Utah [Check! Tickets already purchased.]
~ Read more books
~ Paint and decorate more of the house
~ Take more pictures
~ Play the piano more
~ Blog more
~ Do not turn my blog into a mom-blog. All of my readers have the authority to call me out at any point if this starts to resemble a mom-blog.
~ Sign up for a CSA
~ Eat more organic, whole foods
~ Cook more
~ Exercise more

I have a lot of things to do more of this year. It'll be tough. I already know that 2011 will be the year of the first baby and the year of the deployment [the first part of the deployment anyway]. I can't really put those on a to-do list since Jericho's deployment falls under Obama's to-do list [more on the deployment later]. And this baby will come per his/her own agenda. Most of my year will be to prepare my life for those two pretty huge events. Wish me luck.


  1. Congratulations!!!! YAY! How have you been feeling? When does Jericho leave? When are you coming to Utah? Ahh, I have so many questions! And there is no shame in a mom blog. It totally just happens :)

  2. Big list of things to accomplish this year but yes it looks like it will be one EPIC year for you guys! And ps-I'm stoked about baby's due date.

  3. We're very excited that you are coming out and already have tickets!!

    By the way, what exactly do you mean by a 'mom blog'? Do you just mean you sometimes will talk about your kids or what? Because if you do not talk about the baby and your family I will be very upset. And I also hope you will tell pregnancy updates. Those are fun to read and it's nice to look back (if you make this into a blog book) while in future pregnancies and see what was going on at different weeks. I'm just sayin'....

  4. CONGRATS KELLEY! I re-read #1 like three times...then continued reading and got it : ) Very exciting. And momblogs are not all bad; trust me, you will forget a ton of things, and it is fun to look back and remember. Hope you are feeling well : ) Sarah G

  5. Oh my gosh Kelley congrats!!! That is so exciting!! You are so lucky, summer maternity clothes are way cuter than winter me. Haha!! Congrats again and have fun buying those 100 items for him/her! Woohoo!

  6. I came across your blog while looking up any images for "in omnia paratus." It is one of my favourite quotes and I was thinking about changing my blog name to something with that in it. Love your blog, and nice name (:
