I am sure there are millions of people blogging today about what their New Years resolutions are... It's been a while since I blogged and I thought my resolutions for 2013 seemed like a good place to start back up!
The past couple of weeks we have been moving into our new home (yay!), here's Lylli running toward our home sweet home!
Anywho, the more time I spend in our own home the more I long to be a stay at home domestic goddess once again! I have noticed that owning our own home lights a fire of pride under my tush. I have plans and dreams for our home that I never had for a rental. I am sure I am not the only one who has experienced this phenomenon. More so than ever I am dreaming of the day I can be a stay at home mom and wife again.
So with all of that said I guess I have one primary resolution and a few secondary ones that support my primary one.
1) Resume my full time position as a homemaker
2) Be uber, super disciplined with out budget
3) Significantly reduce debt
4) Create and stick to meal plans
So, there it is ladies and gentlemen ... Although I think I may have listed those backwards because 2-4 will help me reach my #1 resolution but I don't care because #1 is my #1 goal for 2013!! The past 2 weeks (after taking an eye opening look at our bank account and where our money has been disappearing to... eeep) we have REALLY buckled down and been watching our pennies and eating at home. This is delicious but difficult for us because eating out is both mine and my hubby's weakness. :-/ I have been reading some blogs I found on pinterest and getting ideas and one of the tips I came across was having each member in your family choose a dinner they want for the week you're planning for. This has been a great help for me since I am the one who does the meal planning and shopping, it takes the thinking out of at least 3, maybe 4 dinners a week. So, in long, I think I have regained my motivation and am starting out 2013 with a successful foot forward!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
