Looking Ahead to 2009

Looking ahead to the new year...I have a few goals for myself for the New Year. A few carried over from last year since I wasn't able to accomplish everything on my 2008 list (so much to do, so little time)... 1. Travel somewhere amazing! And it must be outside of North America (I'm not going to limit myself to Europe alone, but that would be my destination du jour) 2. Run a half marathon - this is the year! (I was slated to do another triathlon in 2008, but I broke my pinky toe - of all the bones to break)... 3. Save money for my own place...While I have a fabulous apartment, I'd love to have my own place, that allows pets so I can get a little furry friend. 4. Treat myself to nice restaurants, good wine, and not-so-practical-but-have-to-have accessories (every once in a while...) 5. Make more of an effort to get groups of friends together more often. Any of these happen to fall on your lists as well?? image/rodneysmith

I want to try and run a half marathon, and get groups of people together more often...hmmm maybe we should combine these two and do a half marathon together =)...I kinda want to do the Rock n Roll 1/2 Marathon this summer...want to do it!!! We could pressure each other into it ha!

Definitely a great list for 2009. I have some of the same things on mine as well. I'll be getting my first apartment with several girlfriends in the fall and it's exciting but terrifying all at the same time :)

Wishing you the best in 2009!

Great resolutions---fantastic and aspirational and also totally doable! Travel sounds wonderful, and so does treating yourself more often. We could all use a little more self-TLC!

And I totally hear you on getting a place where you're allowed to have pets. I can't wait to add a furry baby to my family!
