Today is thee day. Every year on this day I make promises to myself that I rarely keep. Unfortunately I don't have any of last year's resolutions written down. (or as far as I can find) I have really enjoyed reading many bloggers posts comparing last years blogged resolutions with what they actually accomplished this year and I decided I would start this year! Yes friends I am going to blog my resolutions! (how original, right?) So here goes, hopefully the end of 2011 proves successful.

  • Lose 30 lbs.... I know this is almost everyones goal, but I really want to do it this time!
  • Take time to make dinner at least 5 times a week
  • Create more
  • Keep my room clean!!
  • Be a more patient wife
  • Keep growing my hair (I really really want boob length hair.. Even if it only lasts a month)
  • Take more time to play with my dogs
  • Take my dogs on a walk outside at least 5 times a week, even for just 5 minutes.
  • Go on more outings with my husband
  • Be more active
  • Learn a new skill
  • Take at least 1 big road trip with my husband
  • Try to dress up after work, instead of getting into sweats
  • Wake up in the morning and actually get ready!!! Including make up. For some reason lately I have not been taking the time to get all "dolled" up. I think it is because of my weight gain, I just don't feel like I look good. So whats the point right?
  • Meet my mother and sister in-law for the first time
  • Figure out a better car situation
  • and last but not least, stop eating out so dang much.
I'm sure that more goals and resolutions will come to my mind later on. & maybe I will add to this list, but for now I think that this is a pretty substantial list! What are your goals for the new year??
Well heres to 2011 and hoping to meet some of these by next year!
Oh yeah and I finally finished crocheting Oscars sweater! (it needs to be a tad smaller, but I am pretty proud of myself for finishing it!)

I think you look lovely! Just have a goal to be healthy and you'll be happier. It takes the pressure off..and really more important than size is health. :) Good luck on everything...I'm gonna try to cook more and clean up more too. Good list. Take Care..and Happy New Year! Hearts, Janna Lynn
