2012 New Years Resolutions


I love Christmas and the Elfcapades.....but making an awesome Christmas is exhausting.  Luckily....I didn't get really sick until it was all over.  It's been great having iKeith home for the last two weeks and I'm going to miss all of this family time.

But's time to put the decorations away and take a look inward....and make some kick ass resolutions!

1. Have more sexy time. 

I read in O Magazine that making whoopie twice a week boosts your immune system.  I'm sick of being sick and if I can be more well by spending 20 minutes a week  flat on my back then I am willing to give it a try! Who's with me on this one?

2. Read more.

I just set a goal of reading 28 books in 2012.  I read 27 books in 2011 and I'd like to help all of you reach a personal goal of your having you join me and Mimi's book club.  More on this later in the week.

3. Get Healthy/Run School's 5K.

This is on my list every year.  This year I want to run in the 5K at school and get a cool t-shirt.  I'll be blogging my journey at my fitness blog.  Fat2Fit Mommy

4. See More Theatre.

I love live theatre.  We haven't had a babysitter for a year now but we finally found someone (that we trust) that is willing to watch them occasionally.  I need more dates with my hubby!

5. Drink less coffee/soda.

I'm spending all of my extra money on K-cups!  It's getting out of control and I have a big trip planned so I need to start saving my spending money.

6. More Girlfriend Time.

I have made some amazing friends at school and I want to see more of them outside of PTA meetings and drop off.  I also need to get together with my OLD friends that were with me through thick and thin.  AND I have the trip of a lifetime planned with my blogging besties!

7.  More Adventure Walks.

My kids love to go on adventures and letterboxing.  We need more of this!

8.  Move

I'm going to work hard to see if we can move out of his apartment.  It might not happen for another year but I'm going to keep thinking positive.

9.  Make a Vision Board

I believe in the power of positive thinking!

10.  Floss more.

Like every day!

What are your resolutions?


  1. Great goals! I'm with you on the 5K for sure!

  2. I think that Kcup addiction is going to be a problem for me as well. I have an entire bowl of them and I keep wanting more, more, more!!!!

  3. Hahahaaaa! Number one. That cracks me up.
    Do you have to be awake for number one to work?

  4. Thumbs up on your list!! You got this, girlie!


  5. I'm still working on my list, but I'm aiming for more like doable, done, check it off type things. I don't do well with long term.

  6. a friend and I started running this morning- our goal is to do a 5K by end of February. and more naked time AND it benefits your health? who could say no to that!

  7. You've got some good ones!!! I agree with more friend time. That is so important, and I've let it sit on the backburner for way too long.

    And I love #1. :o) I'm in! Except not on my back. More like up against a wall...was that TMI??? ;o)

  8. Great list! I should really add flossing to said if I didn't floss daily I'd be back for cavity work :(

  9. I like the idea of a vision board, but I'm kinda in the mood for less sexy time. LOL

  10. Those are great resolutions....I rang in this year with a the stomach flu...can only get better from there. :)

  11. Let me just say that I would happily choose #1 as my New Year's resolution because, since my husband's stroke, it has been over a YEAR! Agggh. (did I just say that out loud?)


I love you. You are my best friend! Your hair looks fantastic today!
