2013 Resolution Update

Things have been crazy. Busy and crazy, but filled with lots of exciting things. Here’s an update on how I’m doing with my resolutions. 

My 2013 Resolutions:

Be more patient. A work in progress, but I would say I’m getting better.
Finish decorating our house and hang family pictures. Haven’t hung any so far, but I’ve looked on ETSY and am going to order some art. Next step, order pics to be printed.
Spend more time with my girlfriends. Definitley an A+ for this one. I’ve done a few dinners out and dinner at a friend’s house. I really hope to keep this up.

Have a date night with J at least once a month. We’ve gone out once to dinner and a movie and hopefully we’ll go out to dinner this weekend to celebrate a belated Valentine’s Day.
Get new baby’s room ready. Not yet, but within the next month we will start to order the few things that we need. I have bought several outfits though:)
Save more, spend less. Pretty good. I tracked all of our spending in January which really allowed me to see where our money was going. I’ve also been sticking to only eating out twice a month for lunch at work.
Take a trip with J before the baby comes. We don’t have anything planned, but I’m trying to convince him to take a trip to Chicago for our anniversary in May.
Take one last trip as a family of 3. Booked the trip! We’re going to Kansas City for the weekend to Legoland and Crown Center. 
Reach my billable hours goal at work. Working on it.
Only work late one night a week. I’m so proud to say I’ve stuck with this one for the most part!
Get caught up on scrapbooking. I bought lots of new materials I needed with a gift card I got for Christmas. Now I just need to print off the rest of the pictures.
Blog more often. As you can tell by the lack of posts this one hasn’t been going too well. Things can only go up from here, right?
Read the bible more often. I still need to buy Jesus Calling. I think a group of girls at work are also going to start a bible study.
Update our household binder. I haven’t updated the binder, but I did make a weekly cleaning schedule.
Bring my lunch to work more often than not. Doing great on this one!
Do more. Try new things. We have been busy busy busy. Now to just find time to share everything we’ve been doing.
