Welcome 2012!!

This year we rang in the new year with Matt, Andrea and Ethan. It was so much fun! We played "Wipe Out" and "Just Dance" for the Kinect. One word- HILARIOUS. I'm so glad we feel comfortable around each other because I'm sure we all looked a little silly. Greg has never been much of a dancer, in fact for our wedding it was the ONE thing that he really didn't want to have at the reception! I was pretty shocked that he wanted to try the Just Dance. We all gave it a try and I don't want to speak for Andrea but I think watching Matt and Greg was the best of the night (that and the yummy food)!

This pretty much sums up the night.  I have more "incriminating" photos of us dancing but I'll spare you...
 New Years brings so many things...more people at the gym (at least until February), Pins about decluttering your house and of course the dreaded "resolutions". Are you a New Years Resolutions person? I've never been, I secretly want to be I just always find some sort of excuse...
This year I do have two goals (I feel like if I don't use the word 'resolution' it will be easier. ha!)

1. Get back to organization
I use to be good at organization. Then I had a beautiful little girl and well, you know where that went. I have to be honest, I was a little naieve in thinking I would have MORE time when Everlee got her...yeah...that didn't happen.
My goal this year is to re-organize my week from cleaning to cooking. Greg bought me a sweet planner from Erin Condren I think this will help me stay organized! *hopefully

2. Have some ME time
I really didn't intend for all my 2012 goals to sounds like I'm blaming them on Everlee, sorry sweetie...
This goal may sound a little selfish on the surface but I promise it's not. If I'm totally transparent 2011 was not a good year for me when it came to my quiet time with the Lord. I really struggled to have a consistent time that was just between me and God.
This year is going to be different! I'm going to have some time dedicated to God. I would really like to read through the Bible this year and journal what I've read. I did this while I was at Masters and I think it's time to do it again.
Along with a dedicated quiet time, I want to read more. I LOVE to read, I'm a lot like Kelly I can read a book or 2 a week. I haven't been able to read as much as I would like, I started using Goodreads, thanks to Andrea and Kelly, I've found a lot of books there that I would like to read. I'm thinking a book a week is a good goal...what do you think?! Now I just need to go get a library card!

Do you have any New Years Resolutions? I'd love to hear what you all are doing, maybe we can hold each other accountable!

  1. You don't just have incriminating pictures, I saw the video! :)

    I think you'll do great at your goals. I don't think your "me" time sounds selfish at all. Spending time with the Lord is not selfish! It's necessary!

    And you need to read the Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society! You'll LOVE it!
