FMM-New Year's Style

Good Morning Everyone! I hope this morning's post finds you well rested from the busyness of the Christmas Holiday. Christmas here in Florida went well, if you don't count the fact that I spent all Christmas Eve & 90% of Christmas Day overcoming that nasty stomach bug going around. Nonetheless, we had a wonderful time relaxing and eating {hubby & little man did the eating for me...I lived off of Gatorade and saltines} This morning, Amber over at {aefilkins} is back for another Friend Makin Monday. Today, her topic is about the New Year. And no New Year would be complete without New Year's Resolutions!

I'll be honest with you, I am not very good with resolutions. I'm pretty sure I have never kept one. This year, I am determined to turn over a new leaf and accomplish what I say that I will. On the list for me this year:
  • Get back in shape!- I promise myself this every single year and never really do it. But, I am determined to get  my rear end in gear and lose this last 5-7 pounds of baby weight I am carrying and tone myself back up. Hubby has agreed to keep me accountable and we are going to start running & working out together during the week. It's not that I mind doing it, it's the getting started part that gets me. {Plus, we want to have another baby at some point and I want all of my 'Noah" weight gone so In don't have to worry about it.}
  • Read More.- I already do a lot of reading, but I want to read more than that. And I want to broaden my "reading horizons" so to speak. I tend to stick with the same authors and don't like to read books by people I've never tried out before. This year, I want to pick up some new material.
  • Keep anniversary, birthday, etc. cards caught up.- I try to send cards to our family on their birthdays and stuff, but I tend to either 1) forget or 2) mail them late. This year, I am DETERMINED to make sure everyone gets a card on time.
  • Reach 200+ Followers on this blog.- I don't think this needs a lot of explanation. :)
  • Have some of my writing published in print.- I have sent a few articles off for consideration, but I haven't hear anything back yet. No worries! I am a far cry from giving up.
  • Quiet Time with God include prayer, journaling, & indepth Bible Study.
  • Make more time for just me & hubby {date nights, etc}.
  • Start saving more $$ for Emergencies, Christmas, Etc. 
  • Buy a new camera and learn how to take better quality photos.
  • Try new things with the family. 

I am very excited about the upcoming year. There are a lot of changes and new opportunities awaiting us.W are most likely moving, somewhere NORTH hopefully; Hubby will be undertaking a New job amongst the Coast Guard; and hopefully we will both be starting back to school. I can't wait to see what all is ahead for us. Head on over to Amber's to link up to Friend Makin Monday!

I am with you on keeping up with cards for everyone...I started out really good at the beginning of this year and then slacked off towards the middle.

I really that this list. Why I didn't put my alone time with God is beyond me! I really need to work on that this coming year. I feel like I neglect Him so much at times!
& I'll help with that 200 followers! hehe

Wishing you an amazing 2010!! (So hard to believe it's time to put 10 on the end of 20!)

Nice goals! I have some of the same ones this year (get in shape, read more, send birthday cards on time/correspond with family more). Here's to actually making ourselves follow through! :)

I could pretty much copy and paste all of the resolutions you have set! I can't believe how similar they are to mine :) Although, I have a little more than 5 pounds to lose(and I don't have a Noah, mine would be called "Madilynn weight") I plan on finding a good Weightloss Blog to help keep me motivated.. Any suggestions-send them my way!!Good luck to you!!

I am always trying to lose those last 5 pounds (well not now due to being pg, but usually) and hated it! This time it took getting pg to lose those last five pounds (ironic huh?)

You have a great list! Getting in shape and more quiet time will definitely be on mine. I haven't really put too much thought into it yet, though.

I like all of these! I never really make resolutions, because let's face it, so often they're broken or forgotten...but I have pretty many things floating around my mind that I want to keep up with in 2010! Good luck with yours!
