Goal revisit

So it's been 3 months since I made my 12 goals for '12...let's check in and see how it's going!
I am determined to make 2012 a good year for here are my 12 goals for 2012!

1. Get settled. We've been unsettled for pretty much 2 years. I want to get our new house together, get rid of all our old junk, start fresh.... We are still working on this one. We are quite a bit more settled than we were in January though! We still have the garage to get through.

2. I saw this one over on Allison's it! Have 100 NO SPEND days where we spend absolutely nothing on those days! I'm going to make a little chart to put somewhere to keep up with this one for us. I'm very curious to see if we can do it! ummm...yeah...this  one was pretty much impossible for us. Travis eats lunch out everyday at work so this would NOT work for us. We tried, we failed. :(

3. Complete the potty training process with Essie...she does much better at school so I know it's our fault. We are honestly being lazy about it and we need to go full force and get her out of those pull ups. DONE! Essie is officially potty trained so I can CHECK this one off the list.

4. Be a better friend. I hope I'm doing okay on this one...I have tried to put more effort into my friendships at least!

5. Read at least 3 books. The first one is sitting on my nightstand ready to go.."The Hunger Games". Yes I am late coming to the Hunger Games party but I am determined to get caught up before the movie comes out! DONE!!! The Hunger Games trilogy helped me accomplish this and they were amazing books! Check!

6. Find a church home. Sadly we have yet to check this one off...maybe soon though!

7. Get caught up on Essie's photo books...create a blog book too!  I am overwhelmed by this one and neeeed to do it but haven't yet!

8. Start new family traditions...Friday night movie night, Family Game night, etc. We are doing pretty good with this! We typically have family nights on Fridays and we always go out to dinner after gymnastics!

9. Keep my car clean. It's always a mess-inside and out. Yes! I have done so much better with this if the hubs will too.

10. Do something nice/unexpected for/with my students more often. I have such a wonderful opportunity as a Kindergarten teacher to set them on the right path in education! I think I'm accomplishing this one! I've tried having surprises for my kiddos and I went to a birthday party the other day. I do love them and am sad I only have a few weeks left with them!

11. Get my wisdom teeth out...rediculous I know but I've been putting it off for years! Nope. not yet. Maybe this summer.

12. Get healthy. So cliche but I'm wanting to add onto our family in the near future and I need to be in better health to do it. I am still down around 20 pounds. I did lose 25 but have gained some back in the past 2 weeks. However I am starting back full force with Zumba classes and eating healthy!

Those are my goals...I would love to accomplish them all...let's see how this year goes!

Spring "Break"...whew

We had a CrAzY busy and eventful spring break...after work last Friday we went down to Batesville to visit my parents.  We hadn't been down since Christmas so Essie was super pumped and had a blast.

Then we brought my niece Haley back home with us to spend a few nights. While she was here we crammed as much into our days as we could.

Sunday night we watched movies

Monday we went to WonderPlace, lunch at Purple Cow, and to the park for a picnic dinner.

Tuesday we went to the Jumpzone, lunch at McAlisters, and PlayWorld Pizza for dinner.

Wednesday I met Nana halfway so Haley could go back home and Essie and I took a long, much needed nap that day!

Thursday we drove to Little Rock to meet Sarah & Cooper and we went to the zoo and lunch!  Then Essie went home with Travis' parents so we could go to the midnight showing of The Hunger Games. It was so gooood and we didn't get home until 3 am.

Friday  we ran errands, shopped for Easter baskets, and cleaned house.

Saturday morning we drove back to Little Rock to meet Trav's parents to get Essie back and then came back to go to one of my students' birthday parties!

Dancing and Dr. Seuss

My school signed up to participate in a fundraiser for our local Excel program. It was a Dancing with the Stars/Conway's Got Talent type of thing. We did a flashmob type of dance and I think it was adorable! We won 2nd place Audience pick! My parents & niece, and YaYa came to watch it!

This week at school we had a Dr. Seuss theme...I "cooked" everyday with my kids and we had a character dress up day Friday. I went as "Lilly" from "Lilly's purple plastic purse". 

Essie also had a Dr. Seuss birthday party Friday and she wore a green eggs and ham outfit I made...I think it turned out super duper cute!
