You might remember my post a few months ago about my 4 Simple Goals (inspired by this post).  It’s hard to believe that 2011 is just 2 days away, and I wanted to give you all several updates on my goals, but I only ended up doing one update – tee-hee, oops.  Darn my good intentions but (sometimes) fickle follow through!  Well, here I am anyway, and ready to give you the details:

Goal #1 – Keep my nail polish fresh and….well, polished.

I actually did pretty well with this one – it wasn’t too difficult or time consuming, and the results were pretty.  I think I will continue this goal.  Yay:)

Goal #2 – Get in front of the camera (a lot) more often.

This goal was also fairly simple – take the time to get in front of the camera – regardless of hair or makeup (most of the time).  I didn’t get as many photos as I would have liked, but I still have way more in the past few months than I had before, so I would consider this a WIN.

Goal #3 – Make a new recipe once a week.

Hmmmmm, I don’t know about this one.  I definitely made new recipes, but 1 per week?  Nah.  Too bad – I’m sure that Tristan was rooting for this one:)  I DID make buckeyes, monkey bread, cauliflower steak, and oreo truffles.  Pretty delicious.

Goal #4 – Spend more time outdoors.

I didn’t spend as much time outdoors these past few months as I intended.  If it weren’t for letting my kids stay after school and play on the playground a few times a week, I would have failed this goal in about 3 seconds flat.  I shall try….again.

How about you?  Did you succeed on any goals in 2010?  What about 2011?  Do you have lists made out, or are you skipping the whole resolution thing?  I am definitely making lists, and will be sharing my new goals with Tristan, so that he can keep me accountable (maybe I will even share some here again?).

I hope you have amazing last days of 2010, and do something fantastic that you will never forget!  You could:  write a super long blog post, get your nose pierced, or go see 4 movies in a row.  Do…something.
