Happy first day of 2012 people!!! HaPpY hApPy!!! We had a fun evening last night with friends and then came home to watch the ball drop on tv with my mom and sis. Noah fell asleep with like 5 minutes to go, but my girl Hayden made it all the way :)
I don't often make NY Resolutions, but this year I have a few that I should probably etch in the concrete in my front yard. Yep, they're that important. Here they are:
1. Maintain a healthy lifestyle. More specifically, exercise and eat a balanced diet. I have been REALLY bad over the last few months with making poor food choices and choosing tv and the couch over exercising (and it shows, oh boy does it show). My sis in law and I have created a little "healthy" exercising competition that involves a monthly prize of a Michael's gift card (the perfect motivator). I have NO choice, I will stick to this one. I WILL!!!!!
2. Yell at the kids less and embrace their kid-ness. Sometimes the little "kid" type things that they do drive me crazy. They make a mess, they ask a zillion questions, they whine. A LOT. But, I plan to try to do a better job of keeping things in perspective. It's a hard thought to swallow, but if my babies were taken from me suddenly, all of these "kid" things would be what I would miss most (& that thought just put a huge lump in my throat and tears in my eyes).
3. Spend less money. I am not a BIG spender by any means. But, I do spend unnecessary hard earned dollars on less than necessary things. I let something like a trip to wal mart for diapers turn into a mini shopping spree which leads to more clutter and less "fun" money. I plan to make a change and limit the amount of unnecessary junk that I bring into my life.
That's it people. Three. Three BIG, life changing resolutions which will all help to make 2012 the best year yet! I'm not even going to say "fingers crossed" like I normally would because I am really giving myself NO choice for failure. Nope. NO choice!!!! Watch my dust :)
Oh yeah - and a quick shameless plug if you don't mind.......(remember Cassie, that's the sign I got at the Rose Bowl).
etsy shop and will continue to do so over the next couple of weeks. I tend to sell items on etsy, the way I like to shop on etsy. Meaning, good quality, cute items at affordable prices :) Happy shopping people!
