Checking more things off my list

January turned out to be a fairly productive month for me. I completed a few things off my list and started a few more.

We finally started our kitchen remodel. I will be posting pics and updates on here at some point as well. I actually did make creme brulee. Two different ways. The blog post is started but just not completed… I sent a birthday card to a good friend who I miss a ton.

I am also marking off learn to ski. I didn’t actually learn to ski, but I did learn to snowboard so I’m counting that. I gave it an honest effort, but it just wasn’t my thing. Hubby absolutely loved it and is going to make it his new winter hobby.

One thing I didn’t do was read a book. Well I read Beedle the Bard, but I’m not counting that. It was only ~100 pages or something. I started Wicked which I’ve been meaning to read for a while. I’m about 2/3 done with it. My plan is to read 2 books in February to make up for it.

And the big accomplishment for January was not eating french fries for a month! It was hard but I did it! I even went to Publick House and sat with two people who had fries on their plates! Now I’m thinking I’m going to give something different up every month in an effort to eat healthier. Still haven’t picked anything for February yet… I’m open to suggestions.
