I've Got Big, Big Plans...

OK, so they're not that big. That's just a Starting Line lyric I like from 2007, which was approximately forever ago. Anyway, you know the drill:

totally with you on number 5... that was on my list last year and, surprise, its on my list again this year! haha

rachelsmiles said...

is that really your handwriting?! I want it. Can you make me a font? I donated blood in high school to get out of class but when I finally made it to physics I almost passed out during our lab. I got to sleep it off in the nurse's office.

Liz said...

I'm right there with ya on #5. Bikini bod, here I come!

Vicki said...

You have the neatest handwriting ever. For #5, sparkpeople.com if you haven't yet. It's free and I lost 30 lbs on it. I'm back on it with the same situation.

#2 - try adding instant hot chocolate. makes coffee FAR more delicious, and you can wean yourself slowly off of the chocolate part.

#8 - me too. again. boo.

@stevenadamswv said...

Boo on giving blood.

Quarterlifelady said...

I wanna lose 15 pounds too. We can do it!

Can you learn how to knit a cover for your guitar? A guitar warmer?

Sam Lehman said...

1) Count me in for a segment of a road trip or some other cool, long weekend type thing (esp if you're starting in NE!)
2) Don't start down this path to crippling caffeine addiction.
3) Ok
4) Knitting is easier.
5) I lost 60 lbs that one time. I have tips. Many relate to item #10. And being a gym rat.
6) Don't ever donate "Double Red." Trust me.
7) Cool
8) No longer a statistic!
9) Meh, overrated. Buy a Jetski!
10) You know who to bug for recipes!

Love, Hungry Sam

Just remember to give blood BEFORE redoing your tattoos. I think there is a 12-month waiting period under blood donation regulations. *the more you know*

Denise said...

good list! I like the building of cooking repertoir, that's always something that can be expanded.

suki said...

Knitting is not as hard as you think! I can at least knit and purl to make a very generic looking scarf. Look for tutorials online. I haven't been to NOLA since I was a kid. I'd love to go back! :)

Nora_L said...

I like your list. Except the donating blood part and that's only cause I am bad at it. Like really bad it. So excited to see/hear what 2011 holds for you :)

Jersey said...

go to NOLA! seriously. go.
and.. i need to quit coffee, but can't.
I've tried knitting and failed miserably. However, I do play guitar so there's a win.

Emily Jane said...

Great list. Is that your handwriting? Because if so you need to make it into a font :)

I CAN'T donate blood... because I lived in England during the whole mad cow thing once, my blood is banned from Canada for a lifetime :(

Stephany said...

Great list, Kate! I have many similar goals. :)

I've been meaning to give blood for such a long time now. Whenever my mom sees a Bloodmobile, she's always like "The time is now!" And I'm always like, "Mayyyybe next time? Next time! I promise. The next time we see a Bloodmobile, I will donate." I really need to just bite the bullet & do it.

carly said...

happy new years! i have big big plans too :)

Bitethebedbugs said...

I think those are doable, and number 10 is on my list too. Chili and turkey tacos will be all my kids will remember of me long after I'm gone. I need to add a few more things. Number 2 I taught myself to do a few years back. Iced with sugar and lots of milk eased me into it. I hope your 2011 knocks all this stuff off your list. Go baby go.

Hermia said...

They're good resolutions!!! Although I do recommend learning how to knit over learning the guitar....sooooo much easier and v. soothing!

Linka said...

Very good list! I'm with you on #s 1,5,8,9 and 10! I love your blog! Thanks for visiting mine!

I responded to your question on my site!

amber, this is the life said...

great list! i would just suggest getting rid of #2. trust me, coffee only leads to caffiene addiction and headaches! haha!

Melissa said...

Ahaha, this list is great. I love that even your goal list has a tone of uncertainty to it--the way it should be!

andreaki said...

I love your list! I have lots of similar goals. P.S. Your handwriting is lovely!

Christina said...

What do you want to get your masters in? Donating blood is a great thing, especially if you are physically able to do so.

Brittney said...

Okay, first off, you SLAY me. Mainly # 5, because it's me. I'm all FOR REALS this time. Those last six years were test runs.

Second -- wait, where was I when you were probably VERY obvious about how you don't like coffee?!!?!? But, that being said, from this coffee addict to you -- don't do it. Once addicted, there's. just. no. looking. back.

(Seriously, my mornings are planned around.. can I bring my Thermos of coffee, will it stay warm?)

Allison said...

number 8 is all over my list.

Sandy a la Mode said...

amen to vacation, knitting and losing weight!!

B. said...

Besides the fact that you don't like coffee...I love this list!

By the way, if I were you - I'd take a trip to NOLA with friends. Chicago is awesome, but NOLA w/ friends??? Best trip ever.

Sara said...

NOLA! NOLA! NOLA!

Lorraine said...

I love finding lists that could possibly be my own. It makes me feel like me a little more normal. A little more like I belooooong. ;) Anyways, I love me some coffee. Everything in moderation. Except chocolate which you should have all the time. At least, that's what I always say.

Kristin & Megan said...

Coffee is like beer...Drink it enough and you'll learn to love it!

Jamie said...

Chicago! Because I'm here :)

And yay for knitting! I just learned and I love it.

Itsunbeweavable said...

Ohhh knitting!!! I want to do that too, if I could sit still and like calm down for 30 minutes a day!

Happy New Year love. I'm 6 days late BUT HEY who's counting?

You're amazing.

skinny_dip said...

I love that you wrote your list by hand for us! It reminds me of your Christmas card (that I got on Wednesday night as soon as I got home from BC!) - it was so sweet! Thank you!!

Ashlee Gadd said...

Tip for #4: order a nonfat extra hot black & white mocha (also known as a "tuxedo" "penguin" "michael jackson"). I HATE coffee, but love a good b&w mocha. It's like hot chocolate, with a little something extra.

mandy said...

Awesome list, Katie. Coffee has my heart. Truly, I've never met one I didn't like. Ohh restarting the saving account, thats a good one, I need to do that as well.

Awmber said...

I wish you lived close. I would teach you how to knit! My goals are to actually lose 15 lbs, too. And to go to Boston!
