Making Goals and Sticking to Them

I have plans, plans to make plans, and old goals I want to finally meet. I really dislike the idea of setting up super specific resolutions at the beginning of the year because I know I'll fall short as life inevitably happens. Like this post, for example—it's almost February!


Setting my personal goals aside, I have some ideas for Hippopotamuslee. Close to the top of my list, and most painfully obvious, is to post more. This is a promise I make nearly every year but in 2013 I stuck to it, and I hope to build upon last year. I have a spreadsheet filled with ideas for future blog posts that I’m excited to start working on. But what I most want is to engage with you! I'm really curious, what would you like to see from me this year?

  2. I love that you post on so many topics, but you KNOW I want to see you finish that crochet quilt... and maybe dust off that sewing machine. :) Your makeup techniques/diagrams are always awesome, as are the food posts that always make me hungryyy!

    1. Ugh, I know! I seriously need to get on it and finish it, and to get back on my sewing/crafting horse in general. I'm glad you've stuck with me through my transition into beauty stuff. And if there's one thing you can always count on, it's food posts.

    1. It's one of those things, right? I want to do it, I think out new things, and sometimes you just get a little stuck... But we can both do it! I have faith in us! <3

    1. Obviously this makes perfect sense! I mean, duh! There will always be food, always. I just need to get myself to plan out outfit posts instead of waiting till I'm running late to ask Andrew to take my photos!

    1. Thanks, Melissa! I am determined to finish it... even if weaving in those ends kills me.

    1. You're so sweet. The common thread that unites us all is clearly food. I LOVE it! I've got your polenta recipe coming up super soon, too, so watch out!
