Last year went by too quickly as they always do. Because of that, we didn’t get as much done on our to-do list as we had hoped. Sometimes I make these project lists and goals just to have something to look at as the year goes by and sometimes they make me feel bad at the start of a new year when I realize how much I didn’t do… But then I try to tell myself that I just did OTHER things. hahha. So here’s a quick 2023 recap of our goals and resolutions and what we did and didn’t get to this past year…
As far as resolutions went, I just wanted to follow those below…
See notes beside them to know how they went…
*Get back to blogging consistently – nope
*Read 6-10 books – nope, finished 2
*Establish a good morning routine and hit my weight goals – nope, just hoped to be able to wake up most mornings
*Publish a children’s book – nope, wrote it, but didn’t get to publishing
*Couple time without the kids – nope, this might be a lost cause
*Enjoying the little things… more down time – maybe, I feel like we were much slower this year
*One on One time with the girls – sorta, maybe to and from swim team and before bed
*One family photo each month! – YES! Pulled this off with family selfies!
Closets – Halfway, Cleaned up Mine, redid Ella’s
Pantry – nope, maybe this year
Garage – nope, maybe this year
Half Bath – Finished! Yay!
Pergola – Nope, hung some bistro lights instead
Finish Olive’s Trim – nope, but thinking we’ll do breadboard instead this year
Start Basement – nope, and may be holding off… looking at other ways to “finish” up the basement
While it feels like we didn’t get much done based off this 2023 recap list, we did do a few other things because sometimes it’s ok to go a little off script!
And we threw a couple parties too…
We also travelled a bit…
We went to Universal Studios
We visited Savannah, GA
We travelled to Mackinac Island
And checked out Fishtown, Michigan too
And went to a wedding in St Louis
*I’m realizing I barely blogged last year so there might be some shares of all
these above events early this year to catch up and share*
So… While I feel bad we didn’t get everything done, it’s not like we were just sitting around doing nothing! But what’s up next?! Check out this years’ resolutions to come along for this years’ ride!
