New Year Resolutions

I thought I would share some of my New Year's resolutions for 2013.  Some of them are the same as last year, but I'm hoping I can really stick to them this time.

I'll just list them in no particular order:

Stick to my household chores schedule
Start a skin care routine (aimed at preventing fine lines and wrinkles!)
Plan our meals for each week and grocery shop once a week
Do more craft/learning projects with Jack
Get outside more!
Organize our photos and home videos
Kids Babybooks!!!
Be a better wife and mother
Pray more often
Live life positively.  Be happy!
Get into wearing makeup again
Blog regularly :)
Stick to our budget
Become a better communicator

Whoa!  That's a pretty big list.  I'm up for the challenge!  I love a fresh start.

Merry Christmas!

Yikes!  Has it really been 5 months!

I can't believe it's Christmas Day!  We had Christmas with my side of the family last Sunday.  On Christmas Eve we had our own little family Christmas, because Mark works on Christmas Day this year (hospitals never close, especially the er).  Then today my parents came over to spend the afternoon and dinner with Jack and I.  We had a wonderful holiday season and it's not over yet.  We still have one more family gathering this Sunday. 

Then it's one of my other favorite holidays...New Years!
Although I'll take it easy on the bubbly this year, meaning I'll have none, because.....

I'm pregnant!!!!!!!!!

We are expecting the next member of our famliy in June!  So happy and excited!

We are also house hunting pretty serious now.  We've looked at three houses and no luck so far.  We have a small budget and what's available in our ideal area of choice isn't shaping up to be a good fit for us.  We aren't giving up though, and maybe this spring some more houses will come on the market. 

I'm hoping to post more this year. (new year's resolution!)  I think it will keep me organized.  I have an exciting year coming up and I'm ready to live it!

Have a Merry Christmas!
