Our new nephew, baby Finn, was welcomed into the world this morning.  We haven't met him yet, but judging by the pictures he is pretty darn cute.  :o)

Remembering my Uncle Charlie, who passed away yesterday. 

I'm adding a link to my cousin's blog post...her father in her words.

2012 Goals

I love coming up with goals for myself at the beginning of every year. I'm not always good at achieving them but I try anyway.

1 hour or less of computer Monday thru Friday...2 hours or less Saturday and Sunday (*per day)
**This is one that I plan to really focus on. I waste ridiculous amounts of time on the computer.

Read 2 books per month
**I really go in spurts with my reading. David bought me a Kindle for Christmas and I've already read 3 books, which is 3 more than I've read in the past 2-3 months.

Walk 30 minutes two times per week and Zumba two times per week
**I need to move more!

Pay off 1 credit card
**I still have college debt hanging over my head that I really need to get rid of!!

Make quinoa
**Because I always tell my friend Nicolle that I need to try it. I figure I'll actually remember to try it if I write it down.

Go vegetarian for 30 days
**Thinking I'll try this in the summer when fruits and vegetables are cheaper and taste better.

Run a 5K
**Probably Definitely the scariest goal I've set for myself.

Keep up with Project 2012
**I thought this sounded like a fun project and so easy since you can use pictures from your cell phone.

Create a goal each month
**Mini goals that I'll set out to accomplish each month. I'll try to remember to blog about each one.

What are your goals for 2012?
