12 in 12

I like to have resolutions for the new year, but I do not like calling them resolutions.
I prefer to not really call them anything.  

This year I am referring to them as my 12 in12.

1. Cook at least one new recipe each month.
2.Scrapbook at least one page per week. 
3. Complete my capture my life 365 plus one..
4. Finish 8 more classes towards my degree.
5.See the sunrise on the coast and the sunset on the other coast all in one day.
( I live in Florida so this is achievable)
6.Get and keep my house visitor ready.
7. Go camping.
8.Have dessert at Bern's Steakhouse.( Cherries Jubilee or Bananas Foster)
9. Go to a fair/carnival and ride the Ferris Wheel.
10.Spend quality time with my girls.
11. Have a savings account, with money in it.
12. Go to New Orleans. The place where I was born.

These are in particular order.
None is more important than the next. 
They are just my 12 in 12. 
Wish me luck on my journey to complete them, or on my attempt to be consistent in my journey to complete them.

Color me Crazy......

I must be crazy.
My husband is not going to be happy.
The girls have both wanted some color in their hair.
For some reason I agreed. 
It is not permanent right?

This is what little girls are made of......
These are going to be fun to scrap.
I am thinking a grungy kinda page. 

What else did I do today?
Play on the computer.
Made dinner. 
A new recipe.
From Pinterest.
See you tomorrow.
I need sleep.

Starting again?

I know I do this every few months. I start and everything is going great and then all of a sudden....boom..I stop. Well, I am going to start again. Will be things be different this time? I really hope so. That is part of my 2012...One little word. Consistency! I need more consistency in my life. My kids need me to be more consistent. My work needs me to be more consistent. Will I succeed? It is not always about the destination or the completion, but about the journey I will take to get there.

    One more thing I will be working on is my Capture 365 plus 1. I have started this the last 2 years and again, I have never been consistent with it. But, when I look back at the photos I do have, it inspires me to go for it again. I think I am a bit better organized and a bit more planned out than I have been in past years. I have a visible display area for them in my home, that I am hoping will be my daily reminder.
