Keeping Up With Resolutions: April

This month has been, in my opinion, a fairly successful one. Thinking back on it I was fairly surprised by the amount of stuff I crammed into one month! Much more noteworthy than last month.

Read a book every month:
COMPLETE! But sadly the book sucked. Mid-way through reading it I thought, "Crap, I'm going to post about this book at the end of the month and people will question my taste in books"
I read Girls in White Dresses by Jennifer Close.....for some reason I thought it was going to be like One Perfect Day: The Selling of the American Wedding by Rebecca Mead. 
Whatever. I read the book but wasn't happy with it. My bad.

Learn a new art form/technique:
I did paint this month but haven't moved onto the new art form. I have zoned in on what I want it to be though!

If I must eat pizza, only one a month:
Holy crap, this month was haaaaaard. I ate EXACTLY one medium pizza (combined) this month. Whew. Cut it close.

Eat more leafy greens:
SUCCESS! I give myself a "A" for this month. Not one day has gone by without me eating a salad of some kind. Currently I'm obsessed with Butter Lettuce or Arugula.

Cook/bake 2 new recipes a month:
CHECK!!! I made Blue Cheese Guacamole (which John loved), Grilled Corn, Avocado, and Tomato salad, Hummus Melts (which I tried with regular bread then with Portabellos), Roasted Cumin-Lime Carrots (I also tried the same recipe with asparagus), and John and I made up our own Jalapeno Popper recipe!!! I swear, the only reason I can justify wasting hours on pinterest is knowing I'll find some awesome recipes to try for my new years resolution.

Keep in better contact with my Mom's friends:
Yes!!! I mailed her a Easter card with some photos this month. PLUS, I already pre-ordered her something for May.....not sure if that's cheating or not. I'm going to pretend it's not.

Travel to 2-3 new (to me) cities in the US by the end of the year:
No new cities this month but I have done some hardcore planning for a road trip with some crew members of the film I'm currently on. It probably won't take place till early July.....but then again, I won't have much free time to do anything till July.

Have you been able to keep up with your resolutions?


  1. Kudos on so much completed... Can't believe though that you eat greens every day... I can't stand leafy greens and have to force myself to eat those.

  2. Great job on keeping up with your resolutions! I didn't make any this year because I almost never keep them lol plus I didn't have a good one!
    Oh and I also haaate when I'm reading a book and half-way through it realize it sucks :( always a lame situation!



  3. I went out last weekend to this po-dunk little dive bar and saw a lady that resembled you. It was weird. She was being inappropriate and it made me laugh, lol.

    Hope that road trip includes Boston!
