Some Randomness and Goals for 2011!!

Soo....  Ive  been out of the blogging loop for the last 2 weeks and I feel like I have missed so much! I did do a few posts and got to visit some of my favorites! But I'm back, and ready for the new year with you guys!!

We have been so busy, with family in town , Christmas and New Years and a nasty yucky stomach bug. Its actually going to be nice to get back into routine, well except work, that is one routine that I could go without forever! I spent most of the weekend  cleaning , that's one bug that doesn't bite often, so I thought while Ive been bitten I better work. I was surprised by how much I was able to get  done with Landon. I got all the decorations put away, all or gifts put up, organized my closest , Landon's room, and just cleaned.  It makes me feel so much better when my house is clean. I feel so overwhelmed and blah when my house is a mess, which is 95% of the time. For now we are clean and ready for the new year!

Duh!! I had to throw in a picture of my lil man! New Years day!

We spent New Years day with my family, we had the traditional new years dinner! Pork, Greens and black eyed peas! I usually despise greens, but this year they were so yummy, I even went back for seconds,  My fingers are crossed that all those greens will pay off for us in 2011!! HAHA!!

One of My good blog friends Lynzi at Lil Mrs Housewife ( She is so sweet, upbeat and positive!! Go visit her!! I love her!)  had a really neat Resolution/goal thingy for 2011, I just had to borrow it from her, I know I'm a few days late but, I'm thinking that having it written out will be the constant reminder I need!!

Resolution/Goals For 2011

One thing I will learn:   I'm with Lynzi and this one, I want to learn my SLR!!

One place I will go: We are taking a family trips with our friends to Williamsburg VA in February, I'm excited, it will be our first family trip with friends! Maybe the start of a new tradition!

One physical habit I will break: Eating just to be eating! why in the world am I eating if I'm not hungry!!??

One physical habit I will cultivate: Taking care of myself, Fixing my hair more often and dressing up more often, things like that!

One mental habit I will break: Beating my self up, yeah I'm flawed, so is everyone else!!!

One relationship I’ll repair: At  this point in my life I am content with my friendships, any relationships that have ended, have been for the best!

One work habit I will change: BLAH!! I have a great job, and know that I am lucky to even have a job, but I just want to be at home with Landon! I know I didn't answer this question!

One thing I’ll throw out: One thing?? There are so many things that I need to throw out, my husband is so patient with me, when it come to this, I have the hardest time getting rid of things, but I really need to start!

A second thing I’ll throw out: See above!

One thing I’ll eat more often: Vegetables.

One thing I’ll eat less of: Fast Food!

One thing I’ll drink more: Water!!!!

One thing I’ll drink less: Diet Mt. Dew!

One resentment I’ll get over: Well........ I have a few and it would take forever to explain them, so I will spare you the long story and just work on getting over them!!

One person I’ll treat more respectfully: My sweet husband, he works so hard for us, and has really sacrificed a lot for our little family. He deserves to be treated with a lot more respect then I tend to give him!

One thing I’ll spend less money on:  Eating out or take out!

One other change I’ll make in my finances: We really want to try and get some things paid off this year! We are going to work hard to do that!

One thing I’ll spend less time doing: Worrying about things I cant Change!

And a thing I’ll spend more time doing: Working out (Zumba), Taking care of my family, Blogging!

So with the new start of 2011, my fingers are crossed that I will be able to accomplish most of this list! Happy Monday Friends!!! Its Bachelor night!!!
