I have never made any New Year's Resolution. I like to make Hopes for the new year and here are a few of mine.
~ Budget, Budget, Budget~
My husband and I do really well with budgeting, but there are too many "wants" mixed in there that are all unnecessary. Time to dwindle down and get real tight. With us moving into the new house too, I want to use any extra from our monthly budget to go towards making an extra house payment.
~Make at least 2 extra house payments during the year~ Hopefully the extra money from our monthly budget will take care of one of those extra payments, so hopefully it will only seem like we are making one extra. Anything to get our house paid off sooner than later.
~Organize~ Organize my life in general. House cleaning, bill paying, laundry days, car, etc. I have been known to be a little OCD on this, but it has really been slacking the past few months. I am fine to have a little of this OCD return. Ha!
~Meal Planning/Eat at home~ It is no secret. I am not a cook. I don't even enjoy cooking. I feel like my cooking isn't up to par, so I get down on myself and cook "easy" meals. My goal is to try one (or more) new recipe a month and add that to our monthly menu. Also, eating more at home needs to happen. I will have a beautiful kitchen and I really want to use it fully. We will save eating out for weekends/special occasions.
~Do the Whole 30 sometime during the year~ This is essentially a cleanse for your body. There is no sugar,salt,extra additives, etc. There is a lot of raw veggie eating in it as well as your meat, chicken, fish. Certain grains are omitted to. Basically eating as natural as possible for 30 days to rebut your system. Excited to try this one out and have the Hubs try along with me. He just doesn't know it yet.
~Continue to take pictures~ If you follow me on Instagram (sydedwards22) then you know I post a lot of pictures. Mainly of my son. I wanted to take at least one picture everyday for an entire year of his life. But, I honestly want to continue that one picture a day. I love going back and seeing certain things documented and see how he grows and see how we grow as a family. I'd really like to get a better camera instead of every picture being from my IPhone. Hint, Hint, Hubby.
I also want to say thanks to all my readers on this little small part of the Internet. I appreciate all of your comments and I enjoy getting to know each and everyone of y'all through your individual blogs during 2014.
So what are your
resolutions hopes for 2015?
