Easy as pie? Is pie really easy? It's easy to eat, but not always easy to make. Excellence is easy to appreciate and enjoy, but getting there takes a while. Join me in my Pursuit In Excellence. It won't be quick , but it will be worth it!
For me excellence revolves around motherhood and grandmahood. It is central to my many interests which I use to help my children develop their talents and have fun.
I share my journey here, The Homemaking Cottage and Arizona Mama. Be sure to see what else is cooking!

I’m checking in on my New Year’s goals and January’s overall accomplishments.
.8 – My goal to lose weight didn’t start off like I was hoping since I gained almost a pound in January. I’m fine tuning my goals to include a 350 calorie daily deficit.
2 – Trips to the movie theater (both a little sad) and two books read (one boring and one inspirational)
3 – Friends enjoying a girls night out at a local BBQ restaurant
6 – Hours spent doing inventory for the family business, the kiddos put in more time than me. The youngest were floored to make that much money in two days
7- I’m making progress on 7 of my 10 New Year’s goals by completing my ethics test for my insurance designation, finding a roomie for this months writing conference, posting to my blog, applying for a new position at work and continuing with belly dancing class with the girls
8 – Boys at Cub Scouts, that number will continue to drop over the next four months
11 – Number of months until Christmas! I even started a little bit of shopping
20 – Other January accomplishments include 20 projects off my list (let’s see if I can keep that puppy under 3 pages)
29 – Days I logged my food with My Fitness Pal
641 – Easy as PIE page views, Utah likes me the best
Overall I’m happy to report I’m on track with my goals this year and we’re over 1/12 of the way through 2015! Please share your January accomplishments or hold yourself accountable to those New Year’s resolutions in the comments section.
I’m still adjusting to working. Totally honest, it’s kicking my butt! And I don’t even work 20 hours a week. I salute all of you who work outside the home and still have a life. Here’s how I sliced February.
.2 – Pounds lost. I guess exercise really is important. I need to figure out a way to keep the exercise routine on days I work.
1 – Book read. I had a hard time getting through The Paris Wife. I’m not sure if it was the lack of time or my dislike of Ernest Hemingway. I’m happy to report I’ve already doubled that number this month.
5 – Articles written, including our SEA LIFE adventure.
5 – Projects completed.
12 – Days logging my food. I need to do that more often! It helps me so much.
32 – Countries visited this site.
47 – States visited too. Who did I miss?
258 – Words added to my book. I got a little sidetracked with …
980 – Words added to a short story I want to submit. I have 9 days to write and edit 5200 words. We’ll see how that goes.

Did February blow by as quickly for you as it did for me? What did you accomplish?
We brainstormed a little for a summer bucket list – I’m sure it’s around here somewhere. Our stay at home summer camp continues to morph as the kiddos get older. Even summer school is changing as we moved completely away from the Summer Bridge books and set up our own ‘curriculum’. What we have now are summer goals that include some learning and some fun; I shared l the details over at Arizona Mama. Please stop by and let me know how you make the most out of summer.
