Since January has come and gone and February is on its way out, I wanted to take a look at my resolutions and see how I'm doing. Checking in every couple months should help get these accomplished!

(1) Grow out hair.  - Haven't gotten it cut yet :)

(2) Lose baby weight. - 10 more lbs (and lots of tightening!) to go.

(3) Use all 1/2 empty toiletries and cosmetics.  - Several bottles have been used and thrown away. I can't be the only one guilty of keeping a thousand half used and empty containers all over my bathroom, right?

(4) Complete as many 101 in 1001 goals as possible. The following goals are now IN PROGRESS:
         (64) Weigh 130 lbs- This is below my pre-pregnancy weight, so it's different than my resolution.

         (69) Send mail to someone each month for a year. In the beginning of January, I sent our adorable Christmas thank yous. In February I sent Valentines to a few family members, a birthday package to my sister, and participated in the Spread the Love Valentines Blog Swap!

         (86) Blog at least twice a week for 6 months. This may actually already be accomplished, I just have to double check a calendar.

(5) Throw away/donate something I'm not using every month.  - Went through my closets and drawers. Packed up clothes that are too small (will be giving them to my sister) and threw away socks with holes. I also re-organized our important papers and got rid of ones we don't need anymore.

And here's a quick looksie at how I'm doing with the goals I've set for my 25th year of life. Click the image below to check out the whole list!

(11) New blog design/layout- Got a new welcome picture/message, new sidebar labels, new font, switched around the layout, and got a signature. Next up-- new header.

(22) Complete a DIY project/craft for our home- Baby shadow box {Post here.}


So far, so good I think! Let's see if I can keep this up :)

Oh, and there's a BIG announcement coming soon-- stay tuned!

You are doing great girl!!! :) I really want to make one of those 101 in 1001 lists, or bucket lists of sorts. I'm thinking of doing a list for my 26th year of life since my bday is coming up in a couple months!

And I haaaate how many half-used toiletries stick around forever. I'm gonna add that to my list of things to declutter and use up!!
