Happy Happy New Years....

So here it is.  I've been thinking about my New Years Resolutions and I've decided to go ahead and post them.  Maybe it makes me more accountable if I make them public.  Jeff is out having a "poker night" with his old high school friends.  So it has left me with a quite house, because Blake is in bed.  What a perfect time to reflect on the past year and the New year that is starting.  
-To start living the Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey.  It is time.  We have talked and talked about it but now it is time to put it to action.  
-To run a 5K or maybe a few.  I know that isn't very far but for someone who doesn't really love to run, it is a lot.  That is another resolution I just thought of....I'm going to "embrace" running.  I may even learn to like it.
-Food Storage.  Food Storage.  Food Storage.  I don't even have a follow up for this.  It just needs to happen.
- To continue the gratitude list.  I feel like this is so important.  We need to always have a song of gratitude in our hearts.  It is like the basis for everything.
-I feel like every year I make the New Year's resolution to lose weight and here it is again.  I have about 10-15 more pounds to get to my goal weight.  Wish me luck.
-Yoga.  Not much to this one...I just want to continue going at least twice a week and preferably 3 times a week.  I love it.  It feels so good to me and my soul :)!!

So I'm sure I'll think of more but we'll just start with these.  Have you been thinking of your goals?

Alli! I've missed you. I really have. :) I love your gratitude posts. Maybe that will be one of my New Year's resolutions. To start acknowledging things I'm grateful for. :) You're too awesome.

I love your list! Nate and I ran a 5K just recently and it wasn't all that bad. We pushed Golden while he slept and took our precious time really. If you find a 5K, let me know..I'll run it with you. You're blog is darling!!!

So I'm not coupon shopping yet. And I don't know if I will or not. I really want to, but out here we have ONE grocery store. There's a smith's. And if I want Walgreen's or anything else (where a lot of these couponers go multiple times a week) I have to drive twenty minutes. Plus, I'm buying SO MUCH more produce now. And I don't think coupons for produce exist! So I can't decide if it will work for me. But I'm still debating. We'll see...
