I hope everyone had a happy New Years! Mine was great. We spent the evening at a good friends playing fruit ninja and watching Dick Clarks Rocking New Year's Eve. OH and of course we had excellent food- that is just a given. Nicco lasted til midnight and Lola lasted until 11:28 and 30 seconds. It was great and very relaxed. Such a wonderful way to start 2012. I hope the whole year is filled with happy memories. 2011 challenged me a lot. I am ready for some sunshine!
I have been thinking about my New Years resolutions a lot. I am mostly just sticking with my 27 before 28 list. Those are really all the goals I need. My goal is to stop procrastinating and actually get some of them done! But of course I am adding a few to the mix- can't help myself and all! the new additions are:
*create a crafty project every week. This one was inspired by Emma of Food Coma. She posted about how to make and keep resolutions here on A Beautiful Mess.
*Make mine and the kids space more cozy and put together. This goes right along with my first resolution. I have never really decorated my room or the kids room. I figured that our time here was going to be short so why bother but I am feeling the need to nest. I am hoping to thrift and DIY most of the decor.
*Hike 50 miles over the course 2012. I love hiking and want to start back up. This is more of a family goal. We are hoping the kids can handle it! Our first one is this Saturday if the weather holds up.
*Build up our savings!!! I am awful at saving but it needs to get done. It will give us more peace of mind. And that is worth its weight in gold peeps!
*I am going to do my hair 4 out of 7 days as well. 4 is a pathetic number but I know it is do-able!
*and last but certainly not least- Date my husband! I want more mini dates and more big dates with him. A weekly one to be more precise.
I am resolved (haha) and ready for some action folks!
