End of 2011

As I look back and reflect on 2011, my goal was simply to get in to shape and exercise more and run a 10K. Well, the 10K was finished and I consistently workout 4-5 times a week, usually 5 times. And I did manage to lose a good chunk of weight over the summer.

For 2012 I plan to keep up with the working out. I am enjoying it and it has really become a social outlet for me. I have 2 fitness-related goals set up for this coming year, one is an indoor triathlon in March and the other is the Warrior Dash in June. I think I would like to try an outdoor triathlon except the one I wanted to do there is a scheduling conflict, so maybe if I can find a different one I want to go to. We'll see how the indoor one goes.

Some other things I want to do in 2012 is try out new things. And we are not waiting until the clock to strike midnight to start with that goal. Today, Andy & I are taking skiing lessons. I am also planning on taking a wheel-throwing pottery class. And I would like to make a rag rug (might as well dig through that donation pile to make something with it if I keep forgetting  to put it out for the donation truck that comes around.) Oh! And kayaking! My husband bought me a kayak for Christmas and I have taken an indoor course and have a friend who is willing to take me out to teach me more (same friend who taught me more about XXCing last year.)

Happy Everything!

5x7 Folded Card
View the entire collection of cards.

I ordered some cards from Shutterfly (using a code I had) and then they gave me the opportunity to earn a one-time $10 code if I posted the card to a blog. Or course I was going to do it!

I had decided on the Happy Everything card because if I get it in time I can use it for Christmas cards if I need more, or I can use it for birthday cards, anniversary, whatever. (So, MOM! Don't show this to dad cuz I will send it for his birthday! Can't very well send it to you if you are seeing it now.)

My cards (that I ordered today) are supposed to arrive between 12/19-12/23 (so glad I chose the design I did.)

So, enjoy seeing the preview now. You might just be getting one later. :)
