2013 goals: february results

After the success of January, I was ready to take on February's goals. It was a busy month though so I fell short a bit.
 Here's how we stacked up:

Our Goals Together:
1. One date a month. We went out the weekend before Valentine's Day to the new Dine In Theater to see Identity Thief (very funny!). The theater is just like a regular theater except you get to sit in these huge comfy recliners and you have a waiter to bring you food and refill your drinks. On top of that the level we chose was 21 and older so no noisy teenagers allowed. It was heavenly. If it wasn't so expensive we'd never go to a regular movie theater again. 

2. Host a dinner once a month. Waaah-waaah. We failed on this one. Our weekends were busy and we just didn't get it done.

My Goals:
1. Read 2 books a month. 
 I finally got a chance to read The Silver Linings Playbook. I didn't expect it to be such a light, quick read, but it really was a feel good book. The Kitchen House was not a light book. It dealt with slavery, murder, and abuse. It was a heavy read, but the story was well developed and interesting. 

2. Finish one embroidery/stitching project a month. Done at the last minute, but still done.

3. Run 30 miles a month. Thanks to running a half marathon this month (more about that this week), I finished February with about 40 miles. Now that my marathon is over, let's just see what happens with my running. I have plans to keep up with it so I'm hoping that I hit 30 miles for the rest of the year. 

4. Complete one craft book project a month. Done, and again at the last minute. Maybe in March I'll get my act together?

Not bad, I suppose. I've already chosen March's projects, planned for a date, and plan to start running again this week. It's going to be a good month.
