February 2014 down...eleven to go...

It's February.  
Time to write some new goals.
I am joinin' one of my bloggin' besties, A from The Babbling Box.

I did pretty well with January's goals, but...
 I want to knock February out of the park.

1.  Continue to eat clean and healthy.
Last month I lost 11 pounds.  
11 is my lucky number, but I'm goin' to be realistic here
and go with 7 because it's a short month.
I ate bread yesterday. 
I didn't feel so healthy after stickin' it in my mouth.
I completely fell off the wagon durin' a Super Bowl party.
As my friend Ashley likes to say, "I'm jump startin' my metabolism."
Sounds good to me!
(This one's for you, A!  Did I do it right?)

2. Organize my pictures.
I used to keep up with this...a lot.
I haven't printed any pictures in a while and the ones that I have
printed are in a huge ziploc bag...unorganized.
There is no excuse.
I also need to do this digitally.
My phone always says I've reached my storage limit.
I need to transfer my pics to albums on my laptop.
I would be heartbroken if I lost any pics.

3.  Finish watchin' Sons of Anarchy.
Jerm and I started watchin' this last week.
We are half way through the first season.
Season starts back here at the end of February, 
which means Spring Break madness, which means Jerm 
will be back to a crazy work schedule.

4. Take 3 A.R. tests.
Yes...I take A.R. tests.
I compete with my kids.
This year they are beatin' me...a lot.
I cannot let this happen.
I've got to sneak attack them
when they are least expectin' it!

5. Spend my gift cards.
I currently have several gift cards that need to go 
back to where they came from
and new merchandise needs to come home with me.
Shoppin': Dillard's, Kohl's, Amazon, T.J. Maxx, Hobby Lobby
Eatin': Outback/Bonefish Grill & Captain Anderson's
Pamperin': Rose Nails
I heart gift cards!

6. Still work on my bossiness.
It's pretty self explanatory.
I'm bossy and I know it.

7. Go to bed earlier.
I blame all you fabulous bloggers for this one.
I keep tellin' myself, "One more blog and then I will go to sleep."
You all just have so many amazin' ideas...I can't stop readin'.
The next thing I know it's midnight and I'm still wide awake.
Maybe if I go to bed earlier, I won't need to take so many naps.
Who am I kiddin'? 
I could sleep twelve hours and I'd still want a nap.

Seven is the lucky number for this month...I decided.
Keep your fingers and toes crossed for me.

It's not too late to head over to The Babbling Box
and join in on
the February Goals linky.
The more the merrier!


  1. Those are great goals. I am so impressed with your clean eating commitment, 11 is awesome! You can do 7. I fell off the bandwagon yesterday too, ate some cookies. I take AR tests too, thank you for reminding me to take some more tests. Hope you have a great Monday!

    1. I always end up needing to take my tests when it is about 11 p.m. then I end up forgetting about them the next day.

  2. I'm super impressed with your 11 pound weight loss, although I'm not sure where those pounds came from because you don't need to lose an ounce! And I definitely hear you about staying up too late reading blogs. I have to force myself to shut my computer at certain times or I will be up all night long!!!

  3. Wow!! You are rockin' the clean eating!! Way to go!! I am slowly trying to convince myself to take some pictures off of my computer! I have about 10,000 and I have them backed up...twice...I just can't let go!! Those things to do pile up on you quickly!

  4. I organized my pictures over Christmas break and it feels fabulous! Except, now I don't have any pictures on my! Just room for more! OMG! I love Sons!! It gets better and better!! And crazier and crazier!! I can't wait till you catch up and we can talk about it!!

  5. So happy you linked up for round two! 11 pounds, that's amazing. And that GIF works perfectly. Perfectly! I am so excited you started watching SOA, please let me know when you get to season 6 and give me your thoughts. Can you share all those giftcards? I have one single giftcard to target and I am holding onto it like its the golden ticket!

  6. I am THE world's worst at using my gift cards! I always forget about them. And way to go girl for losing 11 pounds last month! I would try clean eating in Korea, but rice is served with every meal, and you never know what they are going to serve at lunch. Yesterday, we had soup with little shrimp body parts (there was no way I was eating that), so I had a banana and peanut butter.
    Speaking of pictures, I have SO many pictures to edit and blog about since I just got back from my vacations to Thailand and Japan. Off to edit!

    1. I'm guessin' I would be eatin' A LOT of bananas and peanut butter. Lol!
