4 simple goals: q1

it's time to share my simple goals for the first quarter of the year. i'm going pretty easy on this first one since i was a little ambitious for the holiday season and totally failed on getting everything done. ha.

1. learn a new knitting stitch. there is a cowl that i'd really love to try out here that requires a herringbone stitch. it's a gorgeous project that i think would be great in my etsy shop so i need to learn it super quick!

2. start abby's 1st year scrapbook. i know. bad mommy. she's almost 8 months and i haven't done a thing. ugh.

3. plan abby's 1st birthday party. i'm 99.99% sure i have the date so now i need to get out those invites out!

4. schedule some me time. i have done absolutely no pampering for myself since before abby arrived. i need my hair colored desperately and trimmed up so i can continue growing it out. i would LOVE a spa day (hint hint if a certain someone is reading this...) or even just an afternoon to take a class at purl soho.

we are all still suffering from colds here in the taylor house so a lot that needed to get done today didn't (i.e. a trip to the laundromat). i do think we are getting better, it's just been super rough getting abby to stay asleep for any real amount of time. how do you explain to a 7 month old that a. if she blows out instead of sucking in when i'm trying to clear her nose she'll feel better and b. that if she sleeps it off, she'll feel better. it breaks my heart.

oh well... hopefully we get a little peace tonight for me to get a few stitches in.

A worthwhile list! Best of luck with it. Especially #4--that's gotta be critical.

Terrific blog, by the way. Keep up the good work!
