2014 Goals

2013 started off pretty scary with my brother and I's company going through a shit storm, but it ended on the highest of highs. Now that the new year is here it's time to nail down my goals for the year. Oh, and bust out the daily e-card calendar I bought myself. I bet I keep majority of the pages. 

1. Keep my house clean - my ultimate goal would be for it to be Monica Gellar clean at all times but ain't nobody got time for that. I just want it clean enough that if people randomly stop by I'm not worried about them seeing the mess we live in.

2. Lose the baby weight - I have about 30 pounds to go still. If it weren't for the holidays being right after I gave birth, that would probably only be a 20. Ideally this one would be accomplished by about July. But as long as I don't feel like a beached whale when we go to Orange Beach in October I'll be ok. After I get the go ahead from my OB, I'm going to spend some time with Jillian doing the shred. Not sure if I'm ready for Zumba again yet. All of this is dependent on my cyst being completely healed of course. 

3. Double the size of my insurance business - the auto, home, and commercial insurance part. Doubling the crop would be nice too but that one is tricky. And the auto, home and commercial only had about 20 customers. 

4. Pay off the Jeep - I want to say this is the last year on my loan anyway, but even if it's not I would like for it to be paid off. I want to buy something bigger before child #2 gets here and while that's still a couple years off, I'd like to not have a car payment for at least a year. 

5. Find a hobby - Other than drinking wine. When we were in Michigan on our babymoon I asked Danny to pick out an ornament that made him think of me. He picked a wine barrel. Awesome. Danny has hunting, fishing and shooting guns. I apparently have boozing. Soooo, I need an activity. 

That's all for now. I'll try to re-evaluate every month to see if I'm on track to achieve these goals. 

And because you stuck around this whole time, here is a picture for you to enjoy. Diesel and Tucker bro-in' out during tummy time. Is that not the sweetest? Every time we lay a blanket down, Diesel knows its time for tummy time and he wants to participate. Absolutely adorable.


  1. Love your goals and I had to LOL about the wine barrel ornament....ummm where can I get one at?! and the tummy time picture is so cute!!! Happy New Year to you and good luck on all these goals in 2014!!!
