Nice list!  I think this is a great idea.  It’s good to do things that will make you feel happy, and if it can take your mind off the waiting, so much the better!

My list:

1. Learn to use my new camera – I got a DSLR for Hanukkah (my first!) and I am looking forward to learning how to use it.

2. Crafting! – I love this in the first place, but now especially.  I got a sewing machine last year that I have been gradually learning to use,  I recently taught myself some basic emboidery stitches, and am having a great time with it!

3.  Since FH and I are in a LDR right now, I like to indulge in watching my favorite sappy chick flicks as often as I want to.  Next on my list is 13 Going On 30.  πŸ™‚

This is a great idea! Some of the things I’ve been wanting to do are: learn to play the guitar, finsh my 1/2 completed quilt, lose weight, and I’d like to teach my dog how to track.  I’m pretty bad about starting craft projects and not finishing, so I have a bunch of things I’d like to finish. lol

-Get in optimal shape!!

-Train for another half marathon

-Take complete care of myself, everything from nails, to eye brows, to facials, on a total REGULAR basis.  No letting myself go!

-Sing more.  I’ve been singing for my whole life, but recently, have been toooo busy to really enjoy it.

-Relish in alone time.  I live alone now..and sometimes, YES, I do love it…but I am still not used to not having anyone around but my dog and often I feel lonely.  I want to get past that.

-Better manage my money and SAVE!

-Stop thinking about wedding stuff. haha.

1. Find a color and paint the master closet. (My SO is going to put up a custom closet) This gives my clothes an orgasm just thinking about their new home. πŸ™‚ He doesn’t care long as he can hang them up. Men. *eye roll*

2. Work more with my handy-dandy labeler and organize the garage

3. Get in one good mother daughter cruise…if we can trick my mom onto a ship.

4. Find and plant some flowers in the spring and have a backyard full of butterflies

@jesleigh:  OMG – I got a Nikon D90!  πŸ™‚ I’m glad to hear you like it – I’ve heard great things.  I’m totally bookmarking those tutorials!  As far as chick flicks, here’s a short list: Love Actually, 50 First Dates, Wedding Singer, Circle of Friends, Never Been Kissed.  Can you tell I like Drew Barrymore?  Apparently she is in most of my favorites!  Actually, I just saw Going the Distance, and let me say, being in a LDR right now, I totally loved it!

1. actually relax after having graduated with no real obligations

2. take some cooking classes for fun

3. establish a regular workout habit

4. do some volunteer work

5. Take a trip with my best girlfriends (we are planning a cross country roadtrip this summer).

6. Really invest some time and money into making our home look nice.


That’s all I can think of at the moment, but my mind is always coming up with things I want to do.

-pamper myself one day (Spa, mani/pedi, etc)

-Major girls’ night out

-Clean my car, inside and out (might have to wait until winter is over…)

-Go to HP Land in Universal!!!

OOh, I’ll play!

– get back to my strict workout routine.  I’ve been lazing around for weeks now, and I have the 15 lbs. on my butt to show for it.  (I have the worst metabolism…)

– start painting my apt. back to white.  We’re moving in together as soon as we find a house.  So, in the meantime, I’d like to get my place in move-out-able shape.

– Upgrade!  I’ve been in a slow process of updating things in my life that are no longer working – everything from replacing my yoga mat to shopping for a new car to finding a better groomer for my sweet little pup.   It’s been really liberating – for example, I kept a pair of running shoes that I hated – and hurt my feet when I ran – simply because they were expensive, and I felt guilty about it.  Sigh…

There are more, but I won’t bore you with them all! It’s almost time to make my New Year’s List.  I can’t believe 2010 is almost over!!
