12 in 2012

In honor of 2012, I've devised a list.
I'm thinking I may skip the resolutions and instead focus on this to do list of sorts.

So without further ado, my 12 for 2012.
12 things I want to WILL accomplish in 2012.

  1. Stay in touch better with my family and friends. It's so easy to get caught up in our day to day lives that I forget to connect with those around me and especially those further away. This year I will write letters, send cards, check in on FB, email, and ((gasp)) those I love!
  2. Read more. After getting my Thrive for Christmas I downloaded the Nook app and proceeded to read almost a book a day over break. It was awesome. I want to continue this in the new year, taking time to go wherever the books take me.
  3. Paint every room in our house. After 13 years, 2 kids, 2 dogs, and a cat, our house is in desperate need of some fresh paint. It may have to wait till this summer, but this house is going to get a fresh coat.
  4. Run a 10K. A couple years ago I did the C25K and ran a few 5K's. Then I stopped. Stopped running races and stopped running, period. I've downloaded a 10K running program and I'm off.
  5. Lose 10 pounds and then do it three more times. After the last few years watching the scale creep back up, I'm done. It's coming off. That's THAT.
  6. Blog more. Along the way my blogging has evolved. It went from hobby to work to hobby to extinct. I can't believe that a couple months last year I had exactly 2 posts. I miss my blog and sharing me.  So I'm taking it back.  I've enjoyed the freedom after letting go of the extreme blogging, but I need to find a happy balance.
  7. Take more pictures. In my defense October and November were sketchy because I lost my darn camera in NYC, but the other months, no excuses.  While I took tons of pictures over the summer, I need to work on capturing the fun during the school year too.  I know it's there!
  8. Visit one state I have never visited before. Anybody want company?
  9. Take a getaway with my husband. Don't know where, don't know when, but definitely on my list. I love when I get to just hang out with him.
  10. Play more. My kids will tell you all the time that Daddy is better at playing cause when I'm home I'm always working.  Well not this year.  I'm giving daddy a run for his money as being the fun parent. Oh yes. I am.
  11. Relax and take risks. I'm one of those who likes to have a plan for a plan. Order is how I survive, but there are times when I wish I could let my hair down and just go with the flow. I have some big ideas for 2012 and I may just need to let go and jump to see where I can go. Who knows maybe I will fly!
  12. Social Media Adventures. I've been very excited about some social media experiences I've been given lately. I launched Delaware Beach Families awhile ago and am working on breathing life into it, I am currently working on Delaware Social Media Moms, a site to bring Delaware social media women together, I've arranged some local tweetups and one Beach Bloggin' event, and recently I was offered a social media manager position.  I LOVE social media and can't wait to see what it brings this year!
So there it is.
My 12 for 2012.

I was thinking  of posting on 12/12/12, but that would be defeating the purpose I suppose.

Time to start working on crossing things off my list.

Did you create resolutions or something similar this year? Leave me a link so I can come check them out and encourage you.. 2012 is going to be our year!
