     WOW! 2011 is coming to an end! It seems like it just got started.... I am truly thankful for my family and my friends, good health, a comfortable place to live and for the chance to leave my mark on the world everyday by getting to do what I love; not just my job, but also my passions. Last year my goal was to publish my first children's book.... It hasn't been published yet but I am pretty close! I am excited about working with a very talented illustrator and I cannot wait to share my story with the world. So I've been invited to participate in this linky party by Tammy, from Live Love Laugh Kidergarten, where I can share my goals (because I don't make resolutions) with all of you : ) So...although my goals are flexible and may change slightly, they serve as my blueprint for success throughout the year! 

So here I go:

1. Lose 15 pounds by my birthday 0_o
2. Redecorate my office (for the 3rd time) so that I actually work in it!!
3.COOK! more and eat out less (refer to goal number one 0_o)

1. Get that ONE stinking point that I missed for National Board Certification!

2. Publish my first book: Summer in the City! and TOUR TOUR TOUR!
Blogging/ TPT

1. Post on a regular basis (3-4 times/week)
2. Create at least 1 video by June
3. Host my very own Linky Party : ) 
4. Have at least 1 freebie per month/ 2printables per month
5. Publish a cohesive blog with a clear theme and focus.

Thanks Tammy : )

  1. You missed National Boards by one point???!!! Oh my gosh! How infuriating!! I hope that this year brings you that point (and many more) and you achieve that goal.

    I am with you on the losing 15lbs. Mine is closer to 20lbs (stinking baby weight....can you still blame a baby who is 2?)

    Wishing you a happy, healthy New Year.

  2. Thank you for the kind words! Yes.....1 single point! I hope I don't repeat it too much over the few months, as I will be locking myself in Panera starting the first week in January to work on my submission.... YES! you can still blame the baby ((until 5!!!)) LOL! Good Luck, I'm heading over to your blog now : ) Have a great new year!

  3. Thank you so much for linking up! I want to create a video also!

  4. That would be awesome to publish your own book!!! And I agree about hosting a linky party...I need a good topic though. Hope you have a wonderful New Year's!
