2013 Resolutions

Finally my 2013 resolutions (for accountability to myself and others)...

I am a fan of creating New Years resolutions. I always have been. They can be big, small, one thing or ten things. I make them because what better time to start fresh then with a New Year. My resolutions are not huge by any means, but they are important to me. So here they are in no particular order:

To exercise more. I know we all say it but I actually started this one in October, two month early!! Go me! It is more than merely exercising, I took up running. My husband was actually the motivating factor on this one, last spring he decided he would start running (for fun, what?) and it has only taken me forever to jump on board. And darn it if I don't like it! There is such a "runner's high" when you are done. I feel so good, on top of sometimes feeling like I want to throw up! Well I did just only start two months ago and conditioning yourself is hard work :) Needless to say I am enjoying it and hope to continue to do so this year.

This is the boys room (and Chewie the dog) right now...Ugh they throw everything under the loft bed.
To be more organized. When we moved into this house we had one child. We now have three and we seem to be outgrowing our house. Since there are no plans to move anytime soon, we need to make do and make room by getting organized. I am working on organizing everything from the kitchen, to the panty, to the boys shared room. I want a nice neat home, oh wait I have three small children, good luck with that!

My money savings starting with this jar!

To spend less. I really do try to be a frugal shopper, but it still seems like I can do better. I know that I can buy less and save more if I really put my mind to it. I also tend to buy things because they are on sale and that is so not a good idea.

Ashley and I just because :)

To be in the now and to appreciate life. Life is short, my children won't be small forever. I need to slow down, take things in and enjoy the moment more. I tend to hurry through things with my kids and in life. I feel like I am always onto the next thing so I won't miss it, when the really great thing is right in front of me.

JJ saying we are going to ROCK 2013!

So there you have it my 2013 resolutions. They are not really life changing (they are to me) but they are mine. Here's to a great 2013!!

Getting organized is so hard to do, and as you can see I need to start with the boys room ASAP :)

I find that starting before the New Year makes it feel like you really mean it ;) lol
