Happy New Year!!

I hope you all had a nice New Year! We stayed home, ate appetizers for dinner and watched some TV. We know how to get wild!

Hubby was off all last week and we got a ton done around here.  We made a serious dent in the basement and I will be ready to share a few things soon.  I also did some thinking about resolutions.  I love making goals for the year.  My number 1 resolution for the last 2 years has been to reorganize the house top to bottom before PB's birthday in March.  I do love that goal but I have other pressing things that need to be done first.  Like get PB in a big boy room, get the nursery ready, and sew for baby.  So I am going to focus on that.  We actually have started PB's room by emptying it:
The best part, it's already painted!  My Mom and I are re-doing the closet tomorrow.  We have the bed in the garage and all the bedding.  I also found some shelves that we hung in our old house in the basement when we were cleaning it up.  BONUS!!  It all just has to be put together.  

Usually every New Year I have a fitness goal and last year I did awesome! I lost 25 pounds before getting pregnant!! I was really on a roll and I am planning on starting up right where I left off after the baby comes and I am cleared for exercise.  

So this year I am not officially making any resolutions but with a second baby coming soon, I do have some things I want to keep in mind:

1. Don't stretch myself too thin. 
2. Say no to things and don't feel guilty.
3. Be more patient.
4. Yell less.  (as i write that I am yelling at PB. it's a work in progress)
5. Take lots of pictures and make sure I am in some of those.
6. Try to clean a little everyday. 
7.  Ask for help. 

I think that if I can do those things and only those things, it will be a good year. I can only imagine how hard it is going from one kid to two kids so I am not going to put too much pressure on myself.  You might see less of me here, and I am OK with that. 

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!!! See you for Orange Friday and then stay tuned for PB's big boy closet reveal!!

Your New Year's eve sounds like ours. :-). Sounds like a good list. I can relate to pretty much all of them. :-)

Sounds like a wonderful plan. Two kiddos means you can do anything you like~ and I tip my hat to you in the process :)
At least you were awake to welcome in the New Year, I was asleep by 10. Yikes I am sad. Happy New Year!!
