New Years Resolutions 2011

1. I will run a 5K.(It's in April, perhaps I'll do more after the April run.)

2. I will finish my parent's quilt, Aiden's quilt, Hannah's quilt, and Sean's quilt. (The last three are baby quilts, they should not take a ton of time. I just need to finish them!)

3. I will make crafts/sewing projects using up-cycled materials and fabric I already have in my massive stash.

4. I will make and stick to a household budget.

5. I will pay down debt.

6. I will read at least 1 book a month.

7. I will go on "date" nights with my husband at least every other month. (Thanks to babysitting exchanges with friends.)

8. I will learn how to knit or crochet.

9. I will cook more healthy meals for my family.

10. I will LOVE my time with my family. (This won't be so hard most days... but somedays Ella Bean can give me a run for my money!)

I am a special education teacher, so I am all about measurable goals. I realize that several of these are not all that measurable, but such is life. :)


  1. huzzah for babysitting exchanges! It's going to be a wonderful year.

  2. I like your resolutions - you are ambitious :-)
    Maybe a childrens book will serve as your "book of the month" sometimes when life gets extra busy!
