Welcome 2011

2010 was a fantastic year, totally consumed by pregnancy and then all things Grayson. I am really looking forward to the new year and *cringe* have been thinking about some resolutions. I really didn’t want to do a New Years Resolution post, because making resolutions have become somewhat of a joke, because everyone knows no one keeps them past the first week in January. BUT, I’m hoping that maybe if I publish my resolutions for all the internet to see, I’ll have a better chance of keeping them. Hmm…we’ll see.

I’m not really going to get into a resolution about losing weight, because that’s everyone’s resolution and of course I would like to. That’s all I’m going to say about that.

Resolution #1 : Home projects

My goal for this month, and maybe lasting into February, is to complete Grayson’s bathroom and playroom. The bathroom is finished except for some paintings I want to do. It’s a jungle theme and I had planned to complete it between September 21 and October 7. Well, a certain little mister kind of messed up those plans. The playroom is a disaster. It currently holds our huge stash of diapers, toys, books, pictures, and anything else baby that we don’t have a place for. I also want to paint some pictures for the wall, buy a bookshelf and some toy bins. Since we can’t leave toys out in the living room because of Hank, Grayson really needs this room to be organized.

Resolution #2 Food

I am a terrible cook, and I hate cooking. Actually I don’t mind the actual cooking, it’s the grocery shopping/planning part that I despise. But, I MUST get better at it. Ryan and I are both going to work at losing weight this year (eek, I mentioned it again) and I need to find some good, healthy recipes to prepare. I also want to learn to use coupons- I would love to be one of those people who gets $456 worth of groceries for $4.56. Maybe that can be my 2012 resolution, we’ll see.

Resolution #3 Time Management

I want to cut way back on TV watching, useless internet searching, and other things that just take up a lot of time. And I want to find some way to get a little more sleep!

Resolution #4 Relationships

I want to be a better wife, friend, and sister. I want to continue to grow closer to my mom. I want to make some new friends- hopefully some other mommies. I’ve signed Grayson and me up for some activities this spring, so hopefully those will help me with that endeavor.

Resolution #5 Fashion

I have got to get my clothes situation fixed- fast. It’s bad. Really bad.

So I think 5 resolutions is plenty for one year- especially when I’ve got a sweet little baby to distract me from doing anything more productive than cuddling him and kissing his sweet little cheeks. So there you go…internet, please hold me accountable ūüôā
