New Years Resolutions!

2010 has been a good year to me, I'm almost sad to see it go. But since I can't stop time, I have to embrace that a new year is upon us. I think it's safe to say that 2010 has been my favorite year by-far, and I don't see how 2011 can get any better, but then I remember Baby K will be getting older, and cuter (if thats possible), and will be blossoming into a smart young toddler. I can't wait to see what this year has in store for me and my little family.

Every year I come up with the same resolution, to lose weight! Come on!! It never happens. The gyms are always so packed right after New Years, and I've decided I won't be one of those people. Instead, I wanted to make a list of things I want to accomplish this year, some big, some small, but ALL attainable.

I'll probably give this list it's own page, so I can cross everything off as I complete them, because I will complete them!

Things to accomplish in 2011:

Organize all of my photos on the computer.

I will cook a meal for the hubs (isn't it sad that this is a resolution?) Eventually I want to cook on his nights off which is usually twice a week.

Make all A's...again :)


Learn more about photography, and do a photoshoot with someone that is not my baby :)

Teach Baby K how to walk.

Train for a 5K

Run a 5K

Learn some more html.

Learn to sew, or knit, or both!

Hopefully get jobs, and find a nice hometown to live in.

Go on a vacation with the hubs.

Take K on her first beach trip.

Throw Baby K the best first birthday!

Add homemade artwork to our apartment or home. (Working on this one right now!)

Stop nagging the hubs so much.

...And I know this sounds so cliche for a New Years resolution, but I will lose the baby weight! The only reason this is even a resolution is because the gym I belong to is through the school, which isn't open when school isn't in session. So I can't work out until school starts back, which is in the New Year. Also, K will be in childcare next semester so I will have time to work out.
      I think I should re-write this one... I have already lost the baby weight, I did that in the first 3-4 weeks. I actually weigh less now, than I did before I was pregnant (well maybe not NOW that I've eaten my weight over Christmas.) I want my pre-baby body back. I know it won't be the same, but I hope to slim down some more.

Start my book. I'm writing this on here, because I want to be held accountable for it. I will write my book!

Be a better friend.

I will try to be more organized around the apartment.

Can't promise that I will stop procrastinating, but I will try to cut back on it.

Start meal planning.

Try not to hold as many grudges.

Make my blog even better, and reach a bigger audience!

Stop complaining so much...out loud.

See my Boone friends more, before moving away.

Print pictures of the fam off. I'm really bad at never printing off photos.

Catch up on Dexter.

Stop going to bed so late.

Not wait until the last minute to do homework, or study for a test.

Try to spend less time on the internet/Facebook.

Show the hubs I appreciate him more often.

I have a lot more things I would like to accomplish, but I can't think of everything right now. Like I said, I willl give this list it's own page and I will check them off as I do them!

I thought this was going to be a crappy New Years, because the hubs has to work, and I am in Boone alone. I imagined watching Dick Clark's Rockin New Years, then giving Baby K a kiss at midnight. The hubs always has to work on New Years! 

Now, it's not going to be such a bad night. I'm actually looking forward to it. My sister and brother-in-law are heading up here today to spend the night with us, which should be a good time! The hubs and I are going on vacation in 3 months, and my mom has offered to watch Baby K while we are gone, so we decided we needed to start "practicing" being away from her. So in a few hours my mom is going to meet me halfway between Boone and Asheville, and I'm giving her K to stay the night :(

I'm excited about having a baby free night, but this is the first time she is staying the night somewhere else. I am so nervous and sad, but I know she will be in good hands. It's going to be so weird being able to sleep all night, and wake up whenever I want, but I'm already looking forward to picking her up tomorrow :)

Hope everyone has a great New Years, and if you have resolutions, good luck, and I hope you accomplish what you want to do!

See you in 2011!


  1. Great resolutions Courtney! I can help you with 2: You can do a photo shoot with Jax and Reese AND you can do Couch to 5K (and I will start seriously running again) and we can do a 5K together! I really LOVED running last spring and summer, and have just started back- It would be fun to have someone to do a race with! I know you can check all those things off of your list in 2011! See you in a bit!

  2. I think it's so awesome that you want to start writing your book! I know that it will be amazing and I can't wait to read it :) Happy New Year!
