Goals for 2009

I'm not a huge "resolution" kinda gal, but I do think it's kind of fun to feel like you can get a fresh start with each new day, and especially each new year! Some of my goals this year include:

-eat at home even more often (I made a calendar for the month of January already, so I can easily shop for groceries and be sure to cook a nice meal, not just something thrown together)
-prepare healthier meals
-be a little more laid back....I'm definitely the "Patty Planner" type!
-keep my home more organized
-get involved in deeper Bible study and make that a priority
-date my husband more
-truly savor each never get a minute of it back!
-save more money for future
-keep in better touch with family, even though I hate talking on the phone!
-go to bed earlier!!!!

"Be a little more laid back" and "made a calendar of meals". That's funny to me.

Love the pics and the resolutions. I have to tell ya though, I'm seeing failure coming on one of yours....being more organized? Are you kidding? If you, of all people can be even MORE organized, someone is going to just have to admit me! I'd like to have a tenth of your organization....but I guess if anyone can do "more" of would be you! :)
Happy New Year!
