Blog Non-Swap

So it’s a bit of a late post today but there’s a reason! I was supposed to take part in the 20SB Blog Swap today and had even received an email from my partner with plans to pick a topic and everything, but when I emailed her my post yesterday I didn’t get any response. Low-and-behold, it’s late Monday afternoon and I still have no guest post for you, so I figured I’d share the post I wrote on my own blog. No sense in it going to waste, right? Right!


The theme for this blog swap is: “What will you do next year that you’ve been putting off for too long?”

There are a lot of things I put off for way too long; Laundry, cleaning the bathrooms and vacuuming are just a few of them, but I suppose that there’s several bigger things that I’ve been pushing aside simply because life is just too gosh-darn hectic. In 2011 I’m going to (or at least hope to):

Get married: This is actually a given. I’m getting married to the love of my life of eight (8!!!) years in late spring. I wouldn’t say we’ve been putting off getting married, but we’re only 24 and we’ve accomplished a lot before marriage, like buying a house, finishing our post-secondary schooling and developing a savings account. I can’t wait to finally become a Mrs.!

Travel: I didn’t do a single bit of travelling this year other than a weekend trip to Vancouver, (B.C.), to watch a hockey game with my love. I’ve been so busy with working two jobs that it just never happened. Hopefully in 2011 I’ll be able to throw in more trips to Vancouver and hopefully beyond. We picked up passport applications on Saturday so here’s to getting them filled out and used!

Be more domestic: I can’t bake or cook fancy meals to save my life. I really need to learn, because you can only have the same three casseroles so many times before you start to dread dinner. I’m a huge fan of my slow cooker, so maybe I’ll master that. Just don’t expect me to cook a turkey dinner for 10 people. Not happening.

Get back in the gym: I cancelled my gym membership back in June because I had no time to use it. Next year I want to get back in action and get back into shape.

I think that’s about it! Thanks for reading, and be sure to go check out Angelica’s post on my blog as well!

What have YOU been putting off for too long?

  1. I still haven’t gone through all our videos from Europe :S I NEED to get that done and get them edited in 2011! So overwhelming since there are almost 500 of them!!

    Other than that I haven’t been putting much off and really want to focus on living in the moment and having fun in 2011!!


  2. I’ve been putting off getting back in shape. I did the 30-Day Shred for all of four days before I gave up – so my goal for 2011 is to actually do it. All 3 levels. But maybe in 90 days or something …
