As the year is coming to a close and baby a la mode’s arrival is quickly approaching, there’s still a TON of stuff I want to get done before 2012. I’m sure we all have crazy to-do lists and I don’t know about you, but for me, writing them down is the only way I can keep track of them (especially w/ pregnancy brain now). So when oh, hello friend. blogged about the twelve by 2012 challenge that she is taking on (and is encouraging others to partake in), I knew I had to join in on it! It just took me awhile to compile my list~! You can bet I’ll be using my blog to keep me accountable too, so that means you. For each goal I don’t complete, that just means I owe you all a cupcake, deal? 😉
1. Take maternity session photos
2. Have a big birthday giveaway week on the blog (first week of November!)
3. Make a framed chalkboard for the kitchen
4. Finish sending out Thank You cards for baby gifts
5. Make a pumpkin pie
6. Organize craft space in basement
7. Organize and manage the Cold Hands, Warm Hearts swap w/ Much Love, Illy
8. Attend baby care and breastfeeding classes at hospital
9. Make closet divider’s (0-3 month, 3-6 month, etc.) for baby a la mode’s closet
10. Finish baby a la mode’s nursery
11. Wash all of baby a la mode’s clothes
12. Have a baby 🙂
Thanks so much for helping me keep accountable for my goals, Danni!

LOL, #12 is a for sure thing so that’s pretty awesome 😉 That one has to be the best on this list by far! Good luck with all these friend!

When is your due date?!
All this baby talk is so exciting! (Thank goodness for nieces + nephews, I am no where near having a little baby. I need my degree first!)
What a great list. Maybe I need to link up as well!
This is awesome. 🙂 such a fun way to accomplish the things on the to-do lists. And I love that clothing separated idea! Genius!
Love your 12×12 plans! I still have to narrow mine down. Loved it when I saw it on Danni’s blog.
Such a wonderful idea…love your list! Good luck with getting everything done before 2012!!
I love this, and I love your list. I just hopped over and joined myself.
What a great list of goals, Sandy! I just love it.
What great goals. How exciting. I love that craft room idea. Gorgeous!
My main goal is to get my tattoo covered up… hopefully soon!
hahaah!! i love that baby instructional comic!! Very infromative! 😉
I can not wait for the Cold Hands Warm Hearts swap!! I loved it last year!

Hurray! I’m doing it too! Mine is all about my house and yours is all about babies… I think I like yours more. 🙂
hehe this is a great list! Lots of fun things! I don’t think you’ll have a problem accomplishing all of them! Goooooooood luck! 🙂
i love your list (thanks for including my card there too) – you’re inspiring me to make one! i’ve gotta say i’m a huge fan of all the baby related items on yours, that nursery you posted is divine…. i’ll give two big ones that are on my mind: cleaning out and doing a bit of re-deco on my home office, and we are also in the process of trying to become foster parents for a local dog rescue. i can’t wait to have a dog running around our house!
hope all goes really well with your goals!!
Congrats on the impending arrival of Baby a la Mode! That is so very exciting. The best of luck to you!
P.S. making a pumpkin pie wasn’t on my top 12 list, but I am determined to make one this Fall, too! 🙂
Well, you may not be able to control when the last one happens, but I can’t wait to see you accomplish all of these wonderful goals.
get to holiday gift knitting 🙂
Have a baby…You’re too funny lady! : )
YES! Cold Hand, Warm Hearts is coming back! Count me IN!
i cannot wait to see your precious little one!!!!!!
awesome list Sandy! i know you can do it ALL 🙂
Yay for listing making (and Danni’s 12 by 2012)! I love it. Your last one is the best : )
you can do it!!!!!!!
i made a pumpkin pie from scratch (or three pies?) last year and as you know, i don’t cook or bake a lot — it felt like a big accomplishment!
love the baby picture with the letter blocks. awwww 🙂
Oh wow, I just went through that whole do/don’t chart. Pretty funny/scary 🙂
Dearest sweet sandy, this is such an awesome idea! Oh hello friend…she always come out with brilliant ideas! 🙂 I love reading your 12! Such fun! Thanks so much for sharing and love to you!
Hehe, I love how “have a baby” is on your list. You know you’ll get that one done! And you have so many other awesome ideas too–like the clothing dividers and the chalkboard!
these are so fun to read and good lucky dear. My favorite is probably number 12, and I will you will be achieving that one =)
and yes have a lil girl after your baby boy. I want a baby boy and then I’m done!
