Wow 2010 went by fast.  So many things happened this past year, lost a very close family member, some distant friends, and new babies were born.  I didn't accomplish everything I set out to do in 2010, but I am proud of myself for what I did accomplish.  Some of my goals will be the same and others will be added.  So here it goes.

 11 Things in 2011
1.  Lose 50 pounds-I turn 30 this year, and I want to feel good
2.  Plant a garden
