My New Goal

Awhile ago, my friend, Amy Jo made a goal to blog everyday. I told her, and myself, that I'd NEVER be able to do it.

Good thing we all can set goals.

My new goal is to blog EVERY day for a month. So from now until April 14, I will have one blog post a day. (Notice I didn't say HOPEFULLY have; I WILL have. I believe in myself!) I'm hoping that after blogging every day for a month, it'll be habit and I'll just keep going with it.

I love making goals. I love having a plan for everything and making lists-which often comes with making goals. I was going through my journal and found my New Years Resolutions for last year. I had a LOT!
- Read at least 1 chapter of scriptures a day
-Go to the temple at least once a month, even if I have to go alone (because we can't find a babysitter, Cody's working or has tons of school, etc.)
-Practice the guitar at least 30 minutes everyday
-Do at least 20 minutes of pilates everyday
-Clean the house early in the day
-Try to keep the house cleaner
-Shave every other day (mom, I know you're SO excited about that one!)
-Make menu's and cook healthier meals
-Have FHE once a week
-Pray more often in the AM (It's hard to remember when you have a screaming (or now 2) baby and you just want the noise to stop!)
-Learn to sew and use my sewing machine.

This year I didn't formally set any resolutions. Until now! And I'm proud to say I have learned to use my sewing machine and LOVE it (just wish I was better at it!) and I am bummed I didn't practice my guitar 30 minutes a day last year, but it gets hard when you have such a big belly!!! (PS does anyone realize I've now been pregnant for a year and a half? In a period of 2 years?! K, seriously insane.)

I hope you enjoy my new goal! I know I will!!! :)
