I don’t really like to make resolutions, I break them. Or I make the following resolutions;

1. I promise to eat more chocolate.

2. I will add more glitter to things.

3. I will encourage shopping & turn my readers into shopaholics.

4. I will refuse to give up carbs.

5. I will never leave the house in my pajamas.

6. I will continue to believe that my shopping is just my way of contributing to our economy.

7. I will continue to believe that all ugly tack should be banned from horse shows, & that you should never put clashing colors on your horse.

8. I will never give up cupcakes or ice cream.

9. I will adopt a Chihuahua at some point during the course of this year (sorry bf & sorry Tara)

10. I will continue to smile at rude people, it confuses them.

Done, doing it, & I will definitely do it.

I’m more of a goal oriented person anyways I always go with the goal route for the new year. In fact I make goals monthly, weekly & daily. I might be a bit obsessive compulsive when it comes to structure & organization but hey someone has to be!

A couple of goals for the blog this year – Double readership & monthly page views! I like the sound of that, Horses & Heels is going strong & I started it just over a year ago. I remember when only 14 people visited it a day when it first started! Thank you friends : ) Get a better camera. Do more giveaways & more outfit posts!

I have lots of training & barrel racing goals with Rumor & she already knows what these are, we discussed them in the barn last night.

Oh & by the way, Tara says she has no goals for 2012. She believes she is perfect in every way ; )

What are some of you goals or resolutions for 2012?

  • I have made blog goals and business goals and personal goals. I plan on achieving 99 percent of them or die trying.
    Blog: build readership, comment more, interact more, (to name 3)
    Business: To build brand, income, expand (to name 3)
    Personal: Travel more, eat healthier (though I am not giving up cupcakes or ice-cream either), and exercise (to name 3)

    I have a vision board/ notebook full of ideas but these are the basics.

    P.s. Everyone should have the goal to never leave the house in their pjs.

    May you have a wonderful and healthy 2012.

      Go get them Sharon! I love all of your goals, I think we do think a lot alike when it comes to planning & making new goals. Happy New Year!

    I completely agree with having New Year goals! What a great way to start the year. I think Tara’s right, she looks pretty perfect 😉

    I really like you’re 6 and 7, 7 Especially!!!
    My goals are to effectively break my 3 year old, keep all 4 horses legged up and sane, become a better roper and not be offended when I smile at ride people and they simply glare back!
    Blog goal: Hmm, to actually have 10 followers 😉 , post much more often and better my writing in every way.

    Thanks for sharing! And HAPPY NEW YEAR!

      It sounds like you have your work cut out for you on the horse end! Four is a lot of hours in the saddle but you will be in amazing shape!

      Happy New Year to you!!
