.New Year, New List. The Bucket.

Remember when I posted this Bucket List in 2011? 
Yeah, I went back and had a little laugh over all the things that I didn't actually accomplish on it.
Sad, I know.
I had grande plans on printing it out and putting my "2011 To-Do's" in a pretty frame, placing it on my desk and watching the inspiration just flow out of me. 
It didn't happen.
I was convinced that I would check everything off the list, and then some.
It didn't happen.
So I'm going to try this again.
And this time, I am putting this little baby out in the open hopefully making myself accountable for 2012. 
Because I expect big things for 2012. BIG. THINGS.
Bucket List of Awesome Things That I'll Actually Accomplish in 2012
*Take a vacation to another country [yes, this will happen....Euro 2012 is booked!]
*Keep practicing that thing called photography. Take some family photos for a few practice rounds.
*Finish a book a month.
*Finish the backyard. Pour the concrete. Finish the gate. 
*Get some Lawn furniture for the backyard.
*Make our bed daily [still struggling with this one]
*Cook 6 meals a week at home. SIX!
*Grow gorgeous herbs that last longer than a month.
*Book a monthly date night with the hubby.
*Keep plugging away at this blog of mine
*Sew something this year.
*Clean out our basement and make it liveable.
*Go to the gym 5 days a week [even if it is just for a walk]
*Make my quota target at work. Knock their socks off!
*Spend more quality time with those that matter.
*Don't sweat the small stuff. Planning ahead will help.
*Finish the new spare room.
*Finish our bedroom.
*Appreciate all the wonderful things, however small, that come to me this year.

How is your Bucket Lists looking this year?


  1. Great list! I think you will be able to accomplish them all! Putting it out on display for you to see {and haunt you!} will help alot I bet.

    I don't do a yearly bucket list, but I have a side list that I add things to all the time. No time limit though! I don't work well under pressure ;)

    Best of luck with your Bucket List!
