21 Before 22 Recap

I really can't believe it's already been a year since I did this fr my Birthday... This year has seriously flown by!

Last year I did a post of 21 things to do before I'm 22. I think it really helped me to stay motivated by having goals like these so I will be doing another list this year. But for now here's a recap of how last years list went.
Of course I didn't get all of them done and I will be moving some of them to my next list, but here's everything I did get accomplished...

  1. At least 50 Etsy sales
  2. More embroidery lessons - I took a few more lessons from my Grandma :)
  3. Travel A LOT -I really didn't get to travel much this year. But I did go to New Zealand, Pennsylvania, and Texas.
  4. Redesign my blog - Check. But it's time for a new one soon.
  5. Start yoga again -I have done a little bit of yoga this year, but not on  a regular basis like I would have liked.
  6. Draw more
  7. 50 paintings - not even close...
  8. Make more baby stuff for my niece and nephew
  9. Cook more - In Texas living off barely anything, I didn't really have a choice but to cook and I actually really enjoyed it!
  10. Get contacts
  11. Make Red Rabbit my full-time job
  12. More family time
  13. Chick flick day -I had lots and lots of these this year :)
  14. See my brother -I'm so happy I got to see my brother this year <3 and hopefully I will see him this year too!
  15. Finally edit our wedding pics
  16. Get a good camera -Nope... this year both Chase and I are in need of one...bad. So this goal might be a little late, but will have to happen.
  17. Make and accomplish more goals
  18. Have a big card making day -this is the first year I haven't had one of these :(
  19. Post more tutorials
  20. Make Red Rabbit stickers, tags, and cards
  21. Set more time aside for Chase -Not knowing anyone but Chase in a strange city meant lots of time with Chase.
This is my first year doing this and I found out how hard it really is to do all of them (as you can see), but I can tell you now that this years list won't be any more realistic then last years. This is the list that has all of my big goals in it. Every goal for myself. Business, Personal, and just silly fun stuff that I want to do. Even if I don't get all of them done... it's still something to work towards all year.

  1. Nice!! Dustin and I are setting goals for the new year tomorrow actually, so it was fun to read yours!!

  2. p.s. I didn't know you went to NZ - It's one of my favorite places on Earth!

  3. My school makes us do school/career goals. They are ridiculous, yours are much better. :)

  4. Oh nice! New Years goals are great! Yeah we went to NZ the beginning of the year. Right in the middle of summer (over there) it was amazing!

    Yeah school goals WOULD be pretty ridiculous lol
