Can We Do It? Yes We Can!

I am PROUD to say that I accomplished most of my goals. It was really fun to do this, actually. Plus, it gave me something to look forward to and work on. Here's my report card: I think I got a 90%!! Yeah!

1. Decorate house for Halloween. Make some new decorations.
CHECK. DID IT.
2. Flirt with Jake every day.
OH MAN, I FORGOT ABOUT THIS ONE. HONESTLY I CAN'T SAY I DID THIS EVERY DAY. DANGET. DOWN TO 80%. YES I KNOW, I SHOULDN'T HAVE TO WORK SO HARD TO FLIRT WITH MY HUSBAND--HE'S JUST SO LOVEABLE!
3. Buy a new shirt that is out of my comfort zone.
YES, I DID THIS. I BOUGHT A FEW SHIRTS AT FOREVER 21 AND I AM SPORTING THE 80'S. I'M SIMPLY TOO LAZY TO GO TAKE A PIC OF THEM.
4. Get a pair of brown boots--finally!
FINALLY! I DID IT ON AMAZON. YES, I FEEL LIKE AN OLD FART WITH RESORTING TO INTERNET SHOPPING BUT IT WAS SO MUCH EASIER!
5. Get my hands on P90X.
YES, I DID THIS...MULTIPLE TIMES...DON'T ASK! JAKE (YES, IT'S TRUE!) AND I HAVE STARTED DOING IT TOGETHER AT NIGHT TIME. COUPLES WHO WORK OUT TOGETHER STAY TOGETHER!
6. Let the kids play in the rain. Heck, go out and play with them.
NO CHECK. DID NOT DO THIS. I AM ASHAMED BUT IT JUST SEEMED LIKE TOO MUCH WORK!
7. Dress up for Halloween. Be a kid--live again!
I DID IT. I'M A DORK, FELT LIKE A DORK, BUT I DID IT. BOO YAH!
8. See "Thriller".
CHECK. MJ IS AMAZING! HE EVEN ACCOMPLISHED THE IMPOSSIBLE OF GOING FROM BLACK TO WHITE. I LOVE IT!
9. Finish Positive Discipline ( a book that I can't seem to finish).
CHECK! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THE PHILOSOPHIES IN THIS BOOK. MUST READ.
10. Get into a size 8 ???
IF I SQUEEZED I DID IT. WILL I WEAR THEM IN PUBLIC? NOT YET...BUT SOON!(no, this is not a picture of me...in case you were wondering)

Way to go Emily! Eric just checked them out too and chuckled at a few -- he's a guy. He said that the most important goal you didn't meet -- flirting with your husband, of course. Whatever. :)

Way to take care of yourself, as well as your kids and the husband!!

Wow, I'm so impressed. I like your gumby costume! Where did you get it? I remember being so into Gumby at one point in my young life. And the book...so has it made a huge difference? I need something to help me in that department. Write me an email!

Good for you...making that list is such a great idea- I'm sure it makes your days seem more focused and purposeful. I want to see pics of your shirt, hot bod, and Halloween pics of your kids!

You are hilarious. You did great with your goals. As far as I am concerned you were in a eight yesterday with those jeans from charlotte russe.

The Child Family said...

Congrats on your goals!!!! After this baby I really want to get my hands on px 90 as well. Darling, you look AMAZING, you don't need to be in a size 8... you're withering away!!!!!
Was that you in the Gumby costume?

Maylene said...

Yeah! I need to do something like this. Then maybe I would actually get them done because I would have to post on my progress. You go girl :)

YAY! Good for you Emily. I should make lists like this more often. Is that really you as Gumbi? haha

Grant and Shalie Morgan said...

Nicely done! That is amazing that you are a size 8. I hope to do that too by next year (the end of next year anyway). We'll see what happens!! Proud of you!
