Health-I want to keep being healthy and living a healthy lifestyle. That DOESN'T mean
Marriage-As our children are getting older we want to ensure that we are showing them the best example of a Godly marriage. We are putting our marriage on the front burner and keeping our relationship a priority. We want to make sure we touch each other daily and take some time to communicate what happened in our day and what's happening in the days ahead. It really makes a difference when we take more time with each other. We are putting date night in INK on the calendar.
Finances-This year we have many financial obligations. I'm a matron of honor in a wedding this summer, dress, shoes, etc... (that doesn't even count the hubby and the son's clothes) I'm also coordinating the bridal shower....Kennedy is going to be the flower girl in 2 weddings, dress, shoes, etc..., my bonus son is getting married and we'll be vacationing back with my parents for about 2 weeks, there's youth camp tickets for me and my younger son. I'm really trying to be as frugal as we can this year and save where we can. We are also trying to save for some renovation in our bathrooms and kitchen area. If that doesn't give us enough reasons to stick to our budget, I'm not sure what will.
Frugal and Simple Living-I am really trying hard to simplify our home and our budget. I've learned the value of a "shiny sink" . I'm really trying to learn better ways to shop and organize and remember that we can live on less and still LIVE just as well.
Writing- I'm trying to make more time to write. Working it in my schedule beyond my daily devotionals has been tough. I'm just going to keep doing the next thing.
It's a New Year and I've had a blast finding some really great new blogs to keep me moving forward. I'll try to post them in the days ahead. It's a New Year and I'm excited to see what God is gonna do. I know he is gonna bless our socks off!
BTW-I did my grocery shopping today and was able to buy about $150 worth of groceries for about $75. I'm in love with BOGO and coupons...I'll try to post a picture of my goodies......
