Life is busy. Sadly, blogging took a back seat and a lot of the stuff that made this year one of the best of my life, isn't documented. Part of my 2013 resolution list is to start being a better blogger, to really take blogging more serious so I can have the written memory and ability to reflect.
I am excited to make some personal goals for the upcoming year and hopefully be held accountable here in the blog world.
One of my first big changes is going to be - BLOGGING. I want to be a better blogger. Let's be honest, I don't blog for any one but myself. This will never be a money maker or 1000 follower, but I enjoy interacting with the you ladies who read and I enjoy sharing our life with you. I want to do a wedding recap and get that up so we don't forget (what we haven't already) and start posting at least 3 times a week.
I also want to take a look of my 101 list. See where I am at on it, see what I need to put over onto a 30 before 30 and re organize my goals and Bucket List.
I want to do Project 365. I WILL DO IT. No if, and or buts.
Health wise - I want to run in a 5k. I am going to start weight watchers and tracking and I will do a weekly recap after weigh ins each week. I need to get the weight off I gained and start being healthy. I want to get to a weight where I feel safe becoming pregnant.
Financially - we need to save, save, save more. We want to buy a house soon so we need more of a down payment to make the payment easier. I think we have a pretty good system and hope we can stick to it.
We may look into purchasing me a new car this year. We will decided in the next 6 weeks or so and go from there. Car and house should be are two big purchases this year.
Career wise - I am happy where I am at. I am not sure what the next year will bring but as long as I keep moving ahead and continue having growth at my current position I will be happy.
Children - we are in no rush. We don't know if we will have an easy TTC process or have issues but we are content right now and whatever God has in store for us we will deal with at that time. To be honest, I am enjoying my husband and our newlywed status.
Marriage - Tomorrow marks the anniversary of Justin asking me to marry him. Everyone says that the first year is the hardest. I can say that the past four months have been the best of my life. I can only pray our marriage is always this hard. I say it all the time, being married to Justin is the easy. He has the hard job. But with this year I am going to improve. I am going to try to be a little less stressed about laundry, cleaning and house hold chores and just enjoy our time.
I also want to take a vacation this year - just us. Our honeymoon was the best week. We relaxed, slept in and did whatever we wanted. We couldn't have asked for more and I think it is crucial for us to have the reconnecting period and time to just enjoy ourselves together.
I want to take a few more trips/small vacations - just to get away. If all works out we will be in Vegas the end of March!
Most of all, I want to enjoy this year as much as I did 2012. I want to spend quality family time, enjoy the ride and make the most of 2013! Happy New Year!
