We’re two weeks in to the new year and while most of my days are filled with taking photos like the one above — I acknowledge that I’m late to welcoming the new year! Today I want to talk about some 2018 plans and goals. In 2017 my one and only goal was to “blog in real-time” and I did it! I don’t know how many times I blogged but it was a lot. That’s success! But, in 2018 I’m going to be a bit more ambitious (ha!) and I’ve set my mind on a number of life improvements I want to make. I’m going for attainable and measurable goals and not broad aspirations.
Goals for 2018:
Have family photos taken – I’m really looking forward to this and it’s already planned. I figure why not start with something that has a high chance of success.
Take a trip with Sean – Even if it’s a night away, I’ll take it.
Take a trip as a family of four – Pretty self-explanatory but I’d love to continue traveling with Sean and Javi (and now Lola!)
Complete a clothing/shoe purge – Between Christmas, maternity clothing and my real clothing, my closet and drawers are bursting.
Paint our master bedroom – There are just a few rooms left in our house that are still wallpapered and our bedroom is one of them. It needs to go. 2018 is the year!
Pay off 40% of our debt – We were almost out of debt and then we started having kids and fell off. Once I’m back at work (and getting paid again), we need to get a handle on this debt.
Lose all the baby weight – About 15 lbs.
Find a new dentist and go – It’s been an embarrassingly long time since I’ve been.
