Bring on 2012!!

I have not been the best at making and keeping new year's resolutions in the past and I don't know that I want to call this list resolutions but rather, goals. I think everyone should have a list of goals that they would like to accomplish in a day, week, year, or lifetime. It helps me stay focused on what things are important. So, without further ado, here is my list of goals for 2012:

*To blog at least 3 times a week. I love my blog and I love to do blog posts but I just haven't found the time to do it consistently. I plan on setting time aside to do this. It serves several purposes for me. It is a journal of sorts so I can go back and see what I posted in the past. It is a way for those that don't live near me to keep up....as long as I keep up! :) I would like to eventually get in with BlogHer or some site like that to possibly blog for money. I love to write...and my thoughts are the easiest things to write! :) And, the cyber world is a great place to connect with other moms and women.

*To lose baby weight and keep it off. I lost a ton of weight before I got pregnant with Hannah. I would love to get it back off. My goal for this is by the summer.

*To keep my frivolous spending to a minimum. I spend so much money on things we do not need. I can say, without question, that most of the money I spend is on my kids. I do splurge on expensive monogrammed kids clothes. Brice and I had a great conversation on finances and spending today and I have a new attitude about it.

*To read my Bible more often and start a daily devotion with my girls. I want them to know what is important in life - most important - their relationship with Christ.

*I would like to read a little everyday. I love to read and I just don't set aside any time to do it. I got two new books for Christmas and I would like to finish them and some more!

*To send birthday cards to all of my friends. In accordance with the frivilous spending goal from earlier, I spend A LOT of money on friends for birthdays. My goal this year is to only do cards but do them for as many people as possible and gifts for only my closest friends.

For now, those are my goals. I hope to accomplish all of these by the end of 2012!

Happy New Year!

Wow, I think our goals almost mirror exactly. Except, well erm... Mine isn't baby fat. Very cool. Guess we can talk about how we are doing with all that when we see each other.

God bless...
