You guys know I love a list. (don’t you?!)
I’ve got my To Do Before 32 page here on OKDani with some of my goals for my 31st year of life.
It was my effort to keep things going after the uber popular 30 before 30 lists you see on every daggone blog these days.
Let’s see how I did this year.
Here were the Goals:
- Move to Florida
- Take a family vacation
- Save $XXXXX
- Get preggo with baby #2
- Earn a full time salary while working from home (Coaching/Writing/Blogging)
- Get my license (I actually need it now that I’m in Jersey)
- Donate my hair again (?)
- Get published in a paper magazine (not just online)
- Get into the best shape of my life (before ruining it with pregnancy again)
- Get laser hair removal (armpits and.. ahem.. down below)
How I Fared:
Move to Florida
Well, no move yet, but it’s planned for very soon. Things in the OKDaniFamily are not going as planned, with all these icky surprises popping up, but I know the move to FL is going to be the best thing for us all.
Take a family vacation
Almost! The recent financial strain with John not working, and my blogging/coaching income not bringing in as much as we need kinda ruined the savings plan. It’s all good though, I’ll get back on track soon. Once we know whether or not John needs his skin graft I’ll be able to start looking for a temp gig to bring in some more moolah. If he needs it, we’re screwed for a lil while longer.
Get preggo with baby #2
Well, you already know! I’m due in March and super excited. Scared to be a mama of two, but still very excited 🙂
Earn a full time salary while working from home (Coaching/Writing/Blogging)
Meh. I earned a part time salary, but I learned so much that I know next year I’ll definitely be able to earn a full time salary from home. Not sure what will happen once we’ve moved to FL though, I may have to continue pursuing it part time and work outside the home. We’ll see. *GULP*
Get my license
Not yet. My road test is coming up shortly. Cross your fingers that I pass. Which one’s the gas again?
Donate my hair again (?)
I had reservations about this, but in the end I did it!
Get published in a paper magazine (not just online)
OMG I’m being quoted (not published per se) in Health Magazine’s October issue! I’m quoted as “Danielle Faust, NYC Life Coach” ::Squeal!::
Get into the best shape of my life (before ruining it with pregnancy again)
Totally not donezo. I got bikiniworthy (See!?) but nowhere near the best shape of my life. LOL. After BabyH2.0 I am totally hustlin hard for momshell status. I want abs again dammit.
Get laser hair removal (armpits and.. ahem.. down below)
Major fail. There’s this thing that happens whenever I buy a groupon and make an appointment for hair removal. Shortly before my appointment I find out I’m pregnant. I only want 2 kids so I’m scared to make an appointment after I have this baby cuz I may end up with another one! 🙂
Meh, not bad. I didn’t reach them all but it was still a great year. Now I’ve gotta get crackin’ and make a list for my 32nd year of life. Maybe…What’s to Be By 33?
