New Years Resolutions

I've been thinking a lot about resolutions or basically things I want to do differently starting this year, and I think I have finally buckled down a list of what I want to focus on the most....

1. Get Organized.
- Going room by room I'm going to organize each space. I'm going to be posting pictures here of "before" and "after". I've already started in the storage room, and plan to move through the house starting from there. I figured I better do the storage area first...that away if I have more to add to that space, I'm not continuing to junk it up. (That would make it even MORE of a headache!) Dates for completion will be posted here. Starting with the completion date for the storage room and laundry room is this Friday 1-21-11.

2. Work on getting in shape. (This one's for Andy and me)
-Starting today Andy and I are starting up Tony Horton's P90 again. I've told Andy I'm going to be posting our stats here. I'm also going to be focusing on preparing healthier meals for our family. I'll be posting any successful new recipes here too!

3. Read my Bible everyday.
-We're doing this with our church. Andy and I are both using YouVersion to keep up with our daily readings. YouVersion is really a great resource, and it has multiple reading you can find the one that's perfect for you!

4. Get back to reading.
-And more than just children's books! :o) I'd like to read at least 6 new books this year. That may not sound like much to some, but I think I read three books total last year. I love reading....I always have....and I'd really love to start reading regularly again.

5. Sew something new each week.
-I might be biting off more than I can chew here, but I really want to try this. It's not that I'm looking for new things to sell....(although if I really like something it might end up on SweetSamantha)'s more that I just want to try new things. These projects will be posted here and over at my Simply Sweet Samantha blog.

Well, that's about it for now!! Time to get started! :o)
