  {A New Year...What now?}



Wow, another year has come to a close and a new one begins. Lots of people thing of New Years as a day of champagne, resolutions, and black eyed peas. For me this year, its more about setting goals that I can actually reach. Our pastor shared a message this past weekend about being honest with yourself about where your priorities are. This is where I get this list...

My goals for 2009 are:

Continue my weight loss. I am not setting a specific goal, I just want to fit exercises into my day and still eat healthy!


I want to have more family dinners. I love having everyone over and cooking a big meal, I defiantly need to do this more this year.


Post more recipes!!! I get emails and comments from you all to post recipes over here of food I really eat, and honestly, when I cook, I take the photos, but I forget to load them up and post them! So I really will try to do more of that this year.


Repurposing. I love to buy new things and go shopping, but repurposing things I already have around my home is way more fun..and when I do this, I will show it off to all of you!

I don't want to list so many things that I don't get around to them, but I think this is a good jumping off point for me!

I want to thank you all for reading and subscribing to my blog, I LOVE blogging and have met some amazing women here, learned more about decorating and cooking than I ever thought I could. But most of all, I have learned a lot about myself! So thank you all for that!!!
God bless and have a wonderful and safe New Year!!
SEE YOU IN 2009!!!

Wow! I can tell you've lost weight just comparing your profile pic and the pic with you and Lagan! Go Nikki! : )

And when you post recipes, please post that one you have a picture of. I'm drooling over it.

I have enjoyed reading your cute posts, and look forward to many more!

Great list for 2009! We are aiming to be debt free this year. To help me NOT impulse buy, I am moving to the envelope system of spending.
