End of the Year :: 100 Small Things

I've crossed many things off my small things list in the last three months. It's exciting!

In October:
Jamberry my nails (thanks to my new friend JoAnne!)
Review insurance with my new insurance lady (hooray for discounts!)
Volunteer in the boys' classrooms (Wyatt's Halloween party. So much fun!)

In November:
Complete a monthly blog calendar (even though I did this, it wasn't entirely effective for me)
Read Flight Behavior (good, but slow)
Decorated for Christmas (first one in our new house!!!)
Read My Side of the Mountain aloud to the twins (I loved this one so much!)

In December:
Finished Bird by Bird (Such good inspiration if you are a writer)
Meditated everyday for a week (so much peace and introspection. it was lovely)
Got my Washington State license (And there wasn't even a line. Yay!)
Established quiet time activities for the boys (Christmas break was killing me at first!)
KonMari'd the house (still working on this, but I've made so.much.progress)
Read BFG aloud to Logan & Jack (not as good as My Side of the Mountain, but the kids love it)
Purchase and read Winter Storms (so good! sooooo good! gosh I love Elin Hildebrand)
