With 2011 coming to a close, it is time to get ready to get real in 2012 starting with your real New Year Resolutions. I know I have several myself!
One of my New Years Resolutions will be to lose weight. Not only do I have my brother in laws wedding in September, but I want to do it for me. Through some networking I've done in 2011, I had an opportunity I couldn't turn down happen to help make this goal happen for me (I know, not a lot of information there, but there will definitely be some blog posts in the future describing exactly what this all means!). I am setting myself up for success this year!
Another resolution we have as a family is to save money. I swear everything broke down in 2011. I had to replace the tires on both our vehicles and my van had several costly repairs. We still don't have the air working yet in there either. The house also probably needs a new central air unit too. (That money will be coming out of our tax return). We are hoping that all the big expenses are out of the way and we can start saving more. In the fall, we'll have 2 (aff) kids in Catholic school, so we need every cent!
Another resolution will be to travel more! Bill and I are in the process of planning a trip to New York (and yes, we are driving 12 – 14 hours with two kids. Please, remind me why this is a good idea!!!).
