Being a young mom means we met a little early, but I get to love them longer.

Goals for 2012.

I have many goals for this year. I'd like to get them all written down, so I'm going to post them here.

1. Finish the spring, possibly summer, and fall semesters of school, which will put me at the half way mark for my education.

2. Get accepted into the Education program at the end of the year.

3. Find a bigger place to live, and completely organize it. If something isn’t used, get rid of it.

4. Turn 20. I will no longer be a teenager.

5. After Brentley can eat baby food, go on a date with Chris once a month. I miss doing this so much!

6. Redefine my style; no more plain Jane!

7. Lose at least 10 lbs.

8. Get both babies sleeping in their own beds all night long.

9. Potty train Grace.

10. Throw Brentley a wonderful 1st birthday party.

11. Throw Grace a wonderful 3rd birthday party. I’m thinking a Halloween/costume themed party this year.

12. Once Brentley can eat baby food, leave him with Chris every once and awhile, so that I can have some one-on-one time with Grace.

13. After her third birthday, get Grace into something like dance, gymnastics, or soccer.

14. Read my Bible and pray more often.

15. Keep getting stronger in my relationship with Chris.

16. Get married!

These are in no specific order. And I know there are more, but I can’t think of them right now.

Also, Brittany and Erica, sometime around my birthday (Feb. 3rd) we should all get together with the babies. I want to spend some time with my friends for my birthday :)


  1. Awesome list. Mine is all over the place but it all depends on 1 thing....that's will know more about Wednesday. So hopefully then I will be able to post.
    Congrats on being 20....I'm 22(man I'm old) and there really is o big difference. I remember being so excited to turn 20 bc I wouldn't be a teenager but still got weird looks(turns out people can do math) but it also could be I had 2 kids at 20 and I got pregnant with number 3! Haha!!!
    Hope you have an awesome bday!!! Wish I could join you ladies! But I live in Podunkville.

  2. Ehh, I'm going to be 20 and have two as well, so I doubt it will be much different lol.
    I wish you could too! I so wish we lived closer together.

  3. Girl, those are great goals! I am sure you will be able to achieve all of them.

    Good Luck in school this semester!

    And it is a good idea to go out with Chris once a month. Like I mentioned before, Jessie and I do that, and it really has helped us. Even if it isn't something big, it is nice to have time to talk without Samantha trying to talk over us or something.

    Yah. I feel your pain about turning 20. :/ I am not looking forward to it.

    I would LOVE to get together with you and Erica and all the babies sometime! :)

  4. I would love to get together.! That would be so fun. These are great goals. I'll be happy to help with any of them. :).

  5. Awesome :) When it gets a little closer to that time I'll get with both of you and figure out a time that works for everyone :)
