And on to how I did on my goals.. First I will list the goal, then I will tell how I am doing!

1 – Ship to all 50 States!
In January, I shipped to over 10 states. {Not sure on the exact number yet. Haven’t done the final count.}

2 – Get at least a 3.5 GPA this semester.
I am not sure yet because the semester isn’t over until May.

3 – $5 savings plan.
I’m doing really good on this one!! I have saved up $115!!!! I have been SO strict with myself and have not spent a single $5 bill!

4 – Make a special jewelry piece each month and donate a percentage.
Rats! I forgot about this one! I need to make a piece for this month. I will do an announcement on that soon!

5 – Reach Premier with Posh
Unfortunately, I still have quite a way to go. I am still at Pink +1.

6 – Have 100 people on my team
My team got 3 new people this month, for a total of 16. But only 7 of them actually do something with the business! Dang!

7 – Have at least 200 blog followers
I’m a little over 1/4 of the way there!

8 – Have at least 3000 Two Million Miles Facebook fans
I’m at 870. I am 29% there!

9 – Have at least 5000 Jourdan’s {Handmade} Jewels Facebook fans
I am at 3,533 – 67% there!

10 – Hit 100 Etsy sales
Only at 37. ): Anyone wanna boost that number? Use code YOUROCK for 15% off your order!

11 – Have at least 3000 Perfectly Posh Facebook fans
I am at 2308 – 78% there!! WOOHOO!

12 – Have at least 5000 Jourdan’s Jewels friends on Facebook
I am going to change this one a bit.. I just created a new page for Jourdan’s Jewels, instead of a profile. So the new goal will be “Have at least 5000 Jourdan’s Jewels Facebook FANS
In that case, I am only 2% there! Help a girl out?

13 – Make Karsyn a big brother!
I REALLY want another baby, but I am going to wait a little while longer, despite my aching heart, because I don’t want to be pregnant for my wedding. {And saying that made me feel extremely bitchy because I know there are women out there that want to have a baby SO bad and they just can’t even have one. I need to be thankful for the one I have and not take it for granted. Sorry if I offended anyone!}

14 – Pay off all my debts – including my car!
My payoff is about $2000, so I am getting there! I told Kade that when we get our taxes back, I am putting $1000 on my car! Can’t wait!

15 – Move in to a house {preferably our OWN}
If you haven’t picked up on my hints yet, this is happening WAY sooner than I ever expected and I couldn’t be more excited! We are building a house!!! WOOOHOOOOO! We’ve already been accepted. We are doing the Self-Help housing. If you are not familiar with that, it’s where 6-8 families help build each other’s homes. None of you can move in until the houses are completely finished. By building the house, we do not have to pay a down payment. We will have “sweat equity” in the home. We build about 65% of the home. Certain things are contracted out that we can’t do, like digging the basement, electrical work {which my dad is doing in all the homes!!}, etc. I seriously cannot wait! My dad said they should be finished around Thanksgiving.

Are you still with me?!
