Past Year's Resolutions: 2013

What did I accomplish this year?

Every year I ask myself this question and make my retrospective resolutions for the year.  Hindsight is 20/20.  And I think it is much more uplifting to reflect and think, "Wow- I did that!" than to think, "I didn't meet two of my ten goals.  I'm a failure."  Know what I'm saying?  

In no particular order:

  1. Get engaged
  2. Get MARRIED!!!!  And consequently have many, many celebrations of a lifetime and feelings of love, joy, and all things overwhelming that I cannot possibly describe
  3. Visit NYC with the love of my life and his friends (and quite literally rub shoulders with Jake Gyllenhaal at the musical Matilda)
  4. Meet and have a conversation with Steven Spielberg
  5. Be a homeowner (with my *gulp* husband)!
  6. Be on a Broadway Stage (The Foxwoods Theatre to be exact)
  7. Hang out with a Tony Award nominee
  8. Be a choreographer
  9. Be a fairy godmother
  10. Move
  11. Order my first Polish Sausage for my own consumption, of my own free will
  12. Quit my stable, well-benefited job of nearly six years to work with my husband on his business, Life of the Party Entertainment - big, fat, huge, crazy leap of faith! But maybe not that crazy - I made sure to have at least one year's worth of living expenses saved before I took that jump.
  13. Maintain my six-times weekly dates with Gym
  14. Be a nun again 
  15. Attend Sundance Film Festival for the first time - having conversations with the likes of Jim Rash and Jerusha Hess
  16. Help two of my dear, amazing friends on their wedding days
  17. Visit Disneyland, Las Vegas (3 times), Shakespeare Festival, Ohio, Boise, and Arches (my first time)
  18. Bake almost all the desserts for the Off Broadway Theater Fundraiser in Downtown SLC in May
  19. Go skiing for the first and second times
  20. Have my cat shaved into a lion cut - twice.  Trust me, this is noteworthy and hilarious.
