New Years Resolutions

I have never been one to partake in New Years Resolutions... I dont know what it is this year, maybe my new found almost old age, but J&I have been talking about it more and more etensively lately.
So to keep me accountable (kinda... considering I dont think I will be shy to say I fail) I want to share some of my resolutions/goals with yall... and I will update you as the year goes on.
1. Read at least 12 books this year.  any suggestions?!
2. Try at least 4 new recipes a month (suggestions welcome here as well!)
3. Drink once during the week and on weekends only (besides holidays/if we are on vacation)
4. Walk Layla Bean 2-3 times a week.
5. Grow in my job
6. Travel to Chicago with J
7. Try Yoga/any other stress relieving activity (any help here is welcome!)
8. Be a good auntie to all the little babes we have now.
9. Focus on good friends and strengthening those friendships
10. Create a 30 before 30 list by mid January
11. Replace the kitchen counter & get curtains for the living room.
Some are silly, some are necessary... but like I said, any suggestions are welcome...
Here's to 2013 and a successful, happy and blessed year it will be!



  1. Well, I already know you've succeeded in #8.. So you can go ahead and mark that one off;) I know you can do the rest.. Duh! Love you!

  2. For your book resolution, try Mary Kay Andrews (assuming fiction is what you're after!). I recommend Savannah Blues (although all her books are great). It's part mystery, part romance, and a lot of humor! I love the way she writes, particularly about life in the South.

    Another good one is Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls. It's a "true life novel" about her grandmother. She was a kick-ass woman back in the day!

    Google both for a more detailed summary, but I think you'd enjoy them!
