2013: It's a New Year

So the holidays were kind of insane around these parts. Let me lay it all out:
22nd - Baking day
23rd - Dad's side of the family Christmas
24th - Christmas eve at the Grandparents
25th - Christmas... Our house, parent's houses and parentage's house.
26th - My Grandpa's birthday and shooting with my padre-in-law and brothers-in-law
27th - Sort of Christmas at Janice's and the boys went camping while the girls played.
28th - Olivia's birthday.
29th - Joe's birthday.
30th - My mother's birthday.
31st - New Years Eve
1st - New Years
4th - My birthday!

Also, the King whisked me away from here and took me to St. Augustine for my birthday. While in St. Augustine  my face went slack which later we found out was Bell's Palsy. More on that trip and everything else later. I guess this was to show why I have been AWOL lately.
On that topic, I think this would be the perfect time to get into my goals/resolutions for this year.

For my birthday, my mom printed my blog into a book. It was such an amazing and thoughtful gift. As I was looking through it I realized how much my blog was not about me and my husband and our life together. It was more about link ups, guest posts and sponsors. Not so much this year. One of my biggest goals is to make my blog about me and my husband. I will still have sponsors, but this blog will not be about them or about me promoting myself to have more readers. It will be about my wonderful life I have been so BLESSED to have.

One of my other goals is to prioritize my time. Unfortunately I have to work 40 hours a week to get by in life, but those other hours, I have control over. After work, most of my time should be devoted to my husband and our marriage  my spiritual relationship with my Savior and Father in Heaven, me (i.e. time to relax and take care of my body), my family and then my friends.

No more will I be spending my extra time trying to make time for my friends, but making it less time with my husband. No more sitting around the house when I could be out walking or running. No more just going to bed saying, I'll say my prayers or read my scriptures tomorrow. These are the things that will make me most happy and have my life be more fulfilled and worthwhile. They are what matter. This blog will be devoted to that.

An actual resolution that I have is to walk between 30 minutes to one hour. And my favorite resolution are to read 30 - 40 books. I'll blog about that list later this week too :)

Speaking of books, the January book for The Book Club is The Other Boleyn Girl. We will be linking up on Thursday, the 31st and the Book Club google hangout is on Tuesday, the 29th.
Also, please vote for the February book below.
