I'm going to be cliche...

I'm makin' resolutions...


yep...a list of goals...not so much resolutions...albeit it is that time of year and the definition of resolution means:
Aformal expression of opinion or intention made, usually after voting, by a formal organization, a legislature, a club, or other group.

A resolve or determination: to make a firm resolution to do something.
The act of resolving or determining upon an action or course of action, method, procedure, etc.
The mental state or quality of being resolved or resolute; firmness of purpose.
The act or process of resolving or separating into constituent or elementary parts.

A solution, accommodation, or settling of a problem, controversy, etc.
So take your pick, I am doing it...and here are some of my goals:
  • Join Weight Watchers again?
  • Start a friendly weight loss competition with some friends...we all need to have our butts kicked right ladies?
  • Exercising. blechhh.
  • Start couponing, but not all super crazy-like
  • Finish the decor in the Master Bedroom
  • Read my B.I.B.L.E. more.
  • Read more period
  • Get at least $500 into savings.
  • Go to bed earlier.
  • Wake up earlier.
  • Eat breakfast...everyday.
  • Come Springtime...hit my Photography business hard!
  • Get knocked up. :) 
  • Get crafty-er
  • Sew more 
    Gosh,I have more...but I won't bore you with all the details...

    ...and no it has nothing to do with the fact that if I fail, no one but me will know because you didn't even know I had it as a resolution...
