Goals for 2011: A Visual

13 Jan

This week I flew to LA to spend a day with my boyfriend and his family, and then he and I drove out to school for the start of classes. As I figure out which ones I want to keep and which to drop (I’m thinking those 9ams are going to have to go…) I also, albeit belatedly, have been thinking about what else I want to try in 2011. I guess you could say these are “resolutions,” but I prefer to think of them as goals? Anyway, I decided that looking at pictures is just so much for fun and visceral than reading lengthy rants, so here’s a little collage featuring my new year’s resolutions. I’ll be checking in on them periodically here on my blog so you can follow how well I’m doing :) Also, if I write them down and display them publicly maybe that will motivate me to stay on top of everything!

New Years Resolutions

1. Actually make it to the Rec Center this semester. Seriously, my university has one of the newest, nicest gyms in the nation and I’ve never even set foot in the thing. Whoopsies. I’m going to pay for a cardio and a yoga class up front so I’ll feel guilty about wasting money if I don’t go.

2. Order dessert more often. This goes hand in hand with the working out resolution.

3. Continue learning how to cook. (Moving out of dorms + brand new townhouse = beautiful kitchen… and I don’t think my roommates realize anything exists in that part of the house other than the refrigerator, so, it’s all mine.)

4. Splurge on something luxurious I’ve always wanted, I’ll enjoy it more now than I would waiting until later. Some contenders: Tory Burch ballet flats, a Longchamp totebag, and Tiffany’s pearl earrings. Also shown, Chanel handbag, but that’s in the “yeah, in your dreams” category. Continue reading

New Year’s Recap

5 Jan

Apologies for the lateness on this topic but I was waiting for one of my girlfriends to return from a trip so I could borrow some of her photos! Here is a little recap of how I spent my final days of 2010 :). Last Wednesday, I made a day trip to San Antonio to watch my Arizona wildcats take on Okalahoma State in the Alamo Bowl. Although we unfortunately didn’t win, I had a blast tailgating and cheering my team on with one of my sorority sisters!

Leanna and I about to head to the Alamo Dome for the bowl game. Continue reading
