{HELLO 2013}

It's a new year and I am turning over a new leaf! This year, I am setting goals for myself rather than resolutions as to not get disappointed with myself if I don't do as well as I hoped to (thanks Erin for the inspiration). So, this year my goals are to get healthy with my family, exercise more, stay up to date on my memory keeping, as well as procrastinating less, and be a better mother to my children.
By the end of the week my hope is to start the 30 Day Shred!
I am actually pretty excited about it honestly, but I am sure that will change once I actually HAVE opened it and stuck it in the DVD player. I REALLY want to do P90X, but right now it is a bit out of my price range...hopefully sometime this year!!! As, for my diet, my plan is to eat more whole foods and learn portion control. The food that we eat is not at all unhealthy, but the portions we have grown to eat are however. We hardly ever eat out...I cook real meals each night and we actually have family dinners where we sit at the table....how many people still do that? I LOVE it! It give the kids some extra attention and I am there and able to see what everyone is eating and keep them focused on their meal. It's a work in progress, but it is worth every minute.
Have you ever heard of Project Life? This year I am starting on schedule and, let me say, I am SOOOOO Over the Moon excited about it. With some Christmas money I purchased a Canon Selphy photo printer so that I can print my picture from home and not get behind WAITING to make it to the store and print them. I am still waiting on it to arrive, but as soon as it does I will do a little review to let you know what I think of it!
I also decided to subscribe to Studio Calico's Project Life kit, so each month I will be getting new goodies to use in my album....I think that I am MOST excited about this!!!!!!!
And in hopes to stay organized and on top of things, I decided to buy the TOTALLY AWESOME Raskog cart from Ikea...isn't it pretty???
Last night I finished my title page from my 2013 album...it took me a while to get back into the swing of scrapbooking again, but I did it and I am SO HAPPY with how it turned out. Here it is!!!




I am taking a class called Day by Day over at Studio Calico as well, and it has given me some awesome inspiration for my album so far as well as a new found LOVE for my Silhouette. I have learned quite a few new tutorials on how to get the most out of your machine and it is so much fun...I a totally a Silhouette addict now.
If you would like to learn more about Project Life, head over to Becky Higgins' website for the lowdown and, as always, feel free to ask me any and all questions you may have! Here is some info for NEWBIES as well!!!!
The kids are doing well....growing like weeds. Kenzie is 5, Caleb is 3 and Logan is 1 now and BOY are they handfuls, but I wouldn't change a thing. They are adorable and say and do the cutest things. Another goal I have made is to blog more....so until next time (which is hopefully a lot sooner than later). CHEERS!!!!

I am 6 months behid on PL from 2012 but I intend to start again this week and try and catch up at the same time. I have signed up for the SC PL kit too. Hoping it provides me with some inspiration. Good luck with your goals!

Let us know how the 30 day shred is - I have thought about trying it. For now going w/ running a mile a day in Jan. Also - MyFitnessPal is a great app for tracking your calories - it's free to download and has been really helping stay accountable.

Love your PL pages, and your goals! I am jealous about your class, I always wish I'd signed up for them after the fact.
