Hi BCC readers, I’m Desiree and I blog over at Distinctly Desiree.
I am all about lists. I love them. I have so many that I am constantly losing and/or forgetting about them. So, naturally, when Kyla told me about her 12 for 2012 theme, I was pretty pumped. 
Here is my little list of things that I look forward to achieving/experiencing/exploring in 2012:

  • Enjoying my first year of marriage. Holy cow, I’m married (as of October 22, 2011). It still seems surreal to use my new last name and the word “husband.” 
  • Becoming acquainted with my new town. I recently moved back to my home state of PA (yay) from Texas and I can’t wait to explore my town a bit more.
  • Improving my blog. I’ve got some ideas a-brewin’ for vamping up my blog, as well as my own personal style. 
  • Attempting to be more carefree. I’m a stick to the plan type of gal. I’d like to strive to be a more spur of the moment kind of gal. 
  • Pay off our credit card debt. This one isn’t a fun one but it is definitely a necessary one. 
  • Be more outgoing. My husband can (and will) strike up a conversation with anybody - from the grocery store check out lady to the guy in front of him at the post office. I make fun of him for it but if everyone were just a tiny bit more outgoing, I think the world would be a happier place. 
  • Get up earlier. I am not a morning person, yet I always feel better about the day when I get up earlier. 
  • Summer in Pennsylvania. It is so much different than Texas. I am really looking forward to introducing my little girl to all of the things that I grew up doing.
  • Weekend trips. There are so many place within driving distance that I’m excited to explore.
  • Being more patient. I struggle with this every day. To those with children ... please tell me I’m not the only one?!
  • Becoming more active. 
  • Let go and give my daughter a little more room to make choices. So what if she insists on wearing her rain boots and tutu for the third day in a row? Does it really matter in the long run? (This kind of goes along with #4 and #10, I suppose.)
Thanks for asking me to do a guest post for you! I can't wait to read what everyone else has going on in 2012. I hope you had a great Christmas and are looking forward to having a Happy New Year.
