I'm Only a Month Late...

Well, here we are. It's February of 2012. How the heck did that happen??

I can't believe how fast the last year has flown by. Cory and I were floored to realize the other day that it's been a year already since we offered on our house. It seems like it was just last month.

Somehow Kennedy is 7 months old already. What the crap?!

We went to Walmart the other day and saw valentines decorations and were shocked to realize it's 2 weeks away.

Anyway, clearly the year is screaming by. So what would I like to do with my 2012 year? Well...
In 2008 I got married. Pretty rad.
In 2009 I did nothing.
In 2010 I ran my first half marathon. That was awesome. I still can't believe when I drive on Legacy Parkway that I used to run to Farmington and back. I know billions of people run well over 13 miles but for me that was huge.
In 2011 I had a baby. There's really no topping that.
What do I do with 2012? Anything in comparison with the previous years is going to seem pretty weak. But whatever, I need to set some kind of goal.

I started going over in my head all the stuff I like to do and what I still want to accomplish from my "bucket list". I've decided this year will be the year for trying new things.

I want to go to a spa. I want a massage and to sit in a quiet room and be pampered.

I want to conquer an overhang rock climbing.

I want to do the splits.

I don't want to hide the fact that I have musical talent anymore.

I want to help others more.

I want to eat a whole pizza. No wait, that's been done.

I don't have many specifics right now, but my resolution, a month late, is to go out on a limb, be adventurous, try new things, get my hands dirty, and enjoy my life.

I want to be more confident. I want to try things and put myself out there without caring what others might think or say. It doesn't matter because the people who are shallow enough to make fun of me clearly are not good enough people for me to care about their opinion anyway.

I'm pretty excited. When I was pregnant I yearned to be adventurous and daring. I thought it was just because I couldn't do anything but sit on the couch and get fatter, but the feeling is still there. Yippie! I hope Cory is prepared for this. Life is going to get ca-raaaaazy!!!
