Project 52

When we moved to Anaheim this past July I noticed on a lot of my friend's blogs here that they had something called "Project 52." Project 52 is something my friend, Karen, came up with to list 52 goals for the year. She explains it better and more in-depth here.

Last year, in July, everyone was in the middle of their 2011 Project 52. I was jealous. I wanted to join. Making lists is kind of on my top 10 of my favorite things to do, so yeah. Making a list of 52 things that would make me more awesome? I want in on that. 

But because it was July, I passed. I put it off because I...don't know why. I just did. 

But now the time has come. And instead of 52, I had 55. But because this is a very public blog, I've narrowed it down to 52 and kept the other 3 for myself :)

And, with no further explanation, here it is.

Wait! Don't leave me hanging! You only posted 51 not 52 goals. Those look like awesome goals, and I am so in on the GNO, whatever it is! And maybe we should set up babysitting swapping so we can both make it to the temple. And last, you should come take my Zumba class with me sometime, and drag Karen with you because she never came last year ;)

Karen Peterson said...

I love your list! I think I can help with one or two of these...

Beema said...

Wow! Fantastic! Some of those are on my list too, like mopping and cleaning out the refrigerator more often! You go, girl!

Jennee said...

Great list! I've seen zumba on a lot of lists this year and it really is something worth getting in to. I'm so glad you are joining in this year! Can't wait to read about your adventures in accomplishing this list.

Great goals! I bet we can accomplish some of our goals together. We used to do a monthly craft night, let's bring it back!

I'm going to Disneyland in March for the first time since I was a kid. We'll be in the park for two days with my 6-year-old. What are the must sees?

I love your #44, I think we need a GNO for karyoke soon with Karen and the rest of the gang. I would love to join you for #51
Good list

Shelly said...

Great list! Too bad you're not closer, I could help you on some of those. Photoshop is the worst, not intuitive at all!
