Tuesday Topics: Ten New Year Resolutions

A new year! I am working! Surprise surprise! So now I have to worry about writing 13 instead of 12 on my dates! haha!

I grew up Catholic so I do Lent. I have successfully given up some great vices. The only time I did not succeed during a Lenton year was when I tried to give up chocolate. I almost made it...but almost only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades.

Therefore I will not be giving up chocolate or any other resolutions that I can never hold myself to.
Here is what I will hold myself to this year remembering that if I falter it only means I am human. But gosh darn I will try like heck!

I will get a new blog design and really making 2013 the year of my blog!

I will be making my house a home.

I will balance work and life better. (I need to for my sanity)

I will exercise 3 times a week. (why do I feel like this will be the hardest one?)

I will get rid of useless belongings.

I will be the best wife I can be in my first whole year married.

I will eat right.

I will get in the kitchen more often. (I am determined to make this year a big year for me and the kitchen.)

I will save more money this year.

I will try to make it halfway through the year without breaking any of the above resolutions. :-)

What will you be resolving to do in the year 2013? Link up and tell me below!!

I'm excited to join this link up - I missed the first one but I'll catch it next week :) by the way, I love your blog design, I'll be sad when you get a new one because this is the one I put to your name since I met you with this one. haha. but I totally understand wanting a new one - change is fun.

  11. Great resolutions! I plan to get more organized, save money, and drink more water. I think I can, I think I can! :) (I grew up Catholic too, by the way.)

  12. What great goals!! Happy New Year!!I so need to get rid of useless things as well! How do we get so much "stuff" anyways?

  13. Honestly, I think you can make those goals work. Your life will surely be pretty special if you really make it with them!

  14. Great goals girlie! I love your ones on getting a new blog design and making this year fab for your blog. I'm in the process of brainstorming a new design too. I get bored easily! Lol. I also agree with your saving more money goal. Good luck, I'm sure you'll be able to accomplish these all :)
