12x12, i love lists

12 by 2012

Even though I am still working on my 101 list, when I saw this idea on Dani’s blog I just had to join the fun. You see, she and I met during ALT at our “dinner with” and I am so glad we did because otherwise I never would have known of her gorgeous blog. Anyway, the idea is simple, make a list of 12 things you want to accomplish before 2012, and hopefully cross them all off!

I had already been thinking about goals for the fall/winter, so this really came at the perfect time. Here is my list:

  1. Really learn to crochet, from a pattern. I know how to do things, but not the right way. I want to do it the right way so I can make awesome things.
  2. Overnight in the city and visit all the Christmas sights. This seems to be becoming an annual thing for us, so I want to make an effort to make it an annual thing!
  3. Put up outdoor Christmas lights. I missed out last year because of the weather.
  4. Get the husband’s office all awesome and organized.
  5. Remove all the grass from the flowerbeds. Hopefully before the frost and snow comes again.
  6. Make our Christmas cards.
  7. Start to learn the piano again.
  8. Go through books and donate to the local library.
  9. Try one new restaurant each month (3 total).
  10. Bake a totally new to us holiday treat.
  11. Make my daily 2 mile walk a priority. This gets very hard in the winter as the dreadmill is so much more boring than going outside in nature.
  12. Have more actual, in person, interaction with my friends!

    1. Thanks for stopping by! I made that goal for the same reason, more time out with my hubby! šŸ™‚ Good luck with your list too!

  1. What a great list! I especially like number six (something I’ve wanted to do for years) and number nine. It’s so easy to just go back to the same restaurants over and over, but I love to find new ones too.

    1. I wanted to make our cards last year and just ran out of time. I really hope to do it this year! And a bunch of new places to eat have opened up that I really want to explore. šŸ™‚ Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Hello fellow “twelver”, a very doable list, it’s nice you’ve mixed arduous stuff (4) with treaty stuff (9) I look forward to seeing lots of pictures of food on your blog and some awesome crochet (I love those Japanese craft books)

    1. Thanks for stopping by my list! I will be sure to post photos of the cards, and other projects too! šŸ™‚ Can’t wait to see your list get checked off.

  3. I agree: treadmills are DREADFULLY boring. Lately I’ve been reading and walking…that seems to make the time go by faster than just watching tv. šŸ™‚ PS. I don’t want to give away quite yet what I’m gonna be for Halloween, because my costume will either look AWESOME (in which case there will be photos, I promise!), or it’ll be a total f.a.i.l. lol PPS. Thanks for your comment! I love reading every single one and then hopping over to the commentor’s ( or is it commentators?) site and checking out their blog. šŸ™‚ šŸ™‚

  4. Ooh I love number 9!! Hope you’re powering through your list and enjoying it šŸ™‚ So glad 12 by 12 is introducing me to all these great new blogs!! šŸ™‚
