Normally, I'm not one for making a lot of resolutions, if any. I have goals in life and things I want to accomplish but don't usually feel the desire at the New Year to create new ones at that time.
However, this year I have a few things I'd like to work on.
I have been such a slacker at blogging of late. I would really like to attempt to blog much more frequently as it's such a great way to record the little things that I will soon forget if I don't write them down. One way I'm going to try to accomplish this is to publish a post on MY blog before I sit down to read other people's blog's throughout the day. I also have really been enjoying finding ways to become a bit thriftier and more creative of late and would love to blog about some of my ideas or things I have discovered through reading other blogs. I'm debating whether these ideas should just be added to my existing family blog or whether I should create a new blog specifically with thrifty, creative ideas in mind. Hmm...I'm leaning more towards keeping it on my family blog but we shall see. I hope you'll join me in reading little snippets from our family's life in the next year. I love hearing from my readers...if I still have any...so don't be shy! Leave a comment if you have something to say.
On one of the blogs I read, the writer decided to do a simple, new-to-her project each month to teach herself something new and expand her horizons. I would love to do that as well but haven't yet made a list with the things I should try although I have started one. If anyone has any ideas of something they think I should try, please do let me know. I would like to attempt curtains for one room of the house we move to, make peppermint playdough for Taeya and 10 other ideas (at least). Please share if you have something up your sleeve that is easy to do, preferably thrifty and practical.
We just wrapped up a lovely visit with my husband's family. They came out a couple days after Christmas and left this morning to return to CA. We had a great time playing games, playing in the snow and baby snuggling.
My little man turned 2 months yesterday. He is definitely a GROWING boy. My mother-in-law guessed he's about 14 lbs now. We'll find out tomorrow at his 2 month check-up. Brecken is beginning to make eye-contact and smile and "talk" very intentionally now. I absolutely love his little grins and they definitely make my face light up as well.
