2011 Goals Update

I thought I’d take a few moments and share how we’re coming along on some of our goals for 2011. It’s important to look at the goals every few months for a couple of reasons: To be encouraged if there’s anything you can check off the list To be reminded about what you put on the list in the first place (yes, some of us- *ahem*-can totally forget what we wrote down…) To be motivated to continue working on your goals


2014 Goals {& 2013 Recap}

2014 Goals - An Oregon Cottage

Every year I like to review the previous year and make a new set of small, achievable goals for the next year – and share them all with you here on An Oregon Cottage (see 2010 goals here, 2011 here, 2012 here, and 2013 here). And while I enjoy having a record of each year’s goals and accomplishments, my main goal with these yearly posts is to encourage you. How, you say? Well, first to spur you on to make your own…


Ten Things From 2011 That Changed My World

…ojects we completed (or not!), but it also helped me to plan for the next year. I’m not the best at making goals, planning and then executing those goals, so I’m using anything I can to keep me motivated! Whew- so over the next two weeks I will have top ten lists for my favorite recipes, DIY projects, gardening ideas, and tutorials from the past year, ending with a recap of the 2011 goals I shared with you last January and a whole new…


Goals: Looking Forward in 2011

…to look forward. Why put this out there for you? Well, a couple of reasons: 1. I think it’s healthy to set goals and aim to accomplish things over a period of time. This helps us see our progress and be better able to evaluate. There’s something about having a list and seeing them checked off that makes us feel great! 2. I hope you’ll be inspired to set your own goals- especially after you see mine aren’t all that complic…


2012 Goals: A Quick Recap and Looking Forward

I set goals in three areas last year- Home, Financial, and Blog. Writing them down really did help to keep them in my mind. Mainly as I realized some were just not gonna get done. Sigh. I’m going to keep this short and sweet (I’ve got to get some new stuff published for you!) by giving a brief review of how we did with our goals from 2011 followed by what we’d like to accomplish this year in these same three areas. Home: We o…


Goals Update

…; and not “resolutions” or they’d be broken already! That’s one of the nice things about goals, it doesn’t really matter when I reach them, as long as sometime in the future I realize these things, then I’m successful! How’s that for rationalizing? With that said, we’ve had a couple of setbacks in the last two weeks that will probably make our goals…umm, well, a little bit more “futurist…


New Goals and Word for 2013

2013-goal-chairs

…owards building a better life for my family. That’s part of my mission here at AOC, too – and having goals and working towards fulfilling them is part of the package. Reading other people’s progress not only helps me towards my own progress (oh! I need to be working on that, too…), but often gives me ideas. So it’s from this perspective that I present to you this recap of last year’s goals, the goals I have for…


Recap of 2010 Goals- How’d We Do?

…ccomplished here at An Oregon Cottage, what we had hoped to accomplish, and what still needs to be considered as goals for the new year. One thing I’ve learned above all else? The writing-it-down part is the easy part. Actually completing the goals? Harder.*blush* Here’s the recap: We had some financial goals of paying off garage debt, saving for a newer used car, and refining our budget that we’ve had some success with: -WeR…


Top Ten DIY Projects from 2011

…. Turning Old, Broken Chairs Into a Ballard-Inspired Bench. Um…I’m seeing a little theme here. Maybe 2011 should be deemed “the year of the unfinished projects” at AOC? Again, life got in the way and I never got the cushion covered for this, so there’s no final after post – yet. Stay tuned. Gee, I’m glad I made this list- it’s really helping me refine some of our goals for 2012! 5. Painting Our Fa…
