6 Month In

Thursday, June 17, 2010

I can't not even believe that 2010 is half-way over! Being that we are 6 month in I thought I would be fun to see if I've done anything from my "Fun - No - Obligations Resolution List".

1. Play more music
I've been playing so much more music around the house this year. Lots of new Pandora stations and regular dance parties with the boys.

2. Write Letters
Not so much. But there is still time.

3. Channeling Julia
I've been more experimental in the kitchen than ever this year. And I'm loving it! Trying more difficult recipes and challenging myself to cook by intuition.

And not being discouraged by mistakes. Yesterday I cooked a double-layer chocolate cake. The layers completely fell apart when I took them out of the pan. At first I was so discouraged- thinking all my time and ingredients had just gone down the drain. But instead I rallied and patched the broken cake together this frosting; and it turned out GREAT.

4. Lunch with RJ
Still work like to to it more but Landon and I have been getting over to Patagonia more often. We have such a good time getting to see him in the middle of the day.

5. Floss
Still not a regular flosser. Why can't I get this thing down!
(Sorry Mom)

6. Read to Landon
To my delight RJ has taken on the role of Reader. Every night the two of them snuggle with a good book. It's adorable.

7. Style my hair.
My hair and I have a love/hate relationship. One month we're getting along; I'm styling, she's behaving. The next month she's out of control and I'm wrangling with a pony tail. The battle continues.

8. Follow through with ideas.
I've followed through more than ever this year and I truly think it's because I wrote down my goal back in January. There are still more things i would like to try but I am happy to report I've been more adventurous than ever with my ideas.

Here are a few:
make maternity pants from old jeans (really my friend Ali did the work, but I helped spur her on)
plan a family reunion (Tahoe in September!)
start a second blog about thrift and cooking (thrifty family)

9. Wear jewelry
still not so much

10. Use the china a silver
need to get on this one

11. Explore where I live
I really want to see this happen. The last few summers RJ has asked me for a list of what I would like to do. This year the list includes numerous activities from the LA area. We're only 50 miles away - we need to take advantage.

12. Give gifts for no reason.
I did this! Gave away two new books randomly to friends. It was such a good feeling that I want to do it more often.

13. Learn to use RJ's camera
I LOVE RJ's camera. It's the only thing I shoot on these days. Still don't know it very well but it's so much fun.

14. Blog more
I've done more posts this past year than every previous!

2010 is shaping up to be a memorable one!

Sounds to me like you are doing great on those goals! And if it makes you feel any better, I'm not a good flosser either. But apparently, using mouth wash regularly can make up for the lack of flossing (at least my family's dentist says so).

I love the new look to your blog, especially the captured photo of Landon! He is precious!
