Two In 2012

Did you make any New Year's Resolutions this year? I am not really a resolution kind of girl anymore. Usually I never keep them anyway. There are a couple of little things I would like to do this year though. I'm not promising myself anything, but I would like to TRY to do these two things if I can. I'm just keeping it simple!

1-Every year, I make it a goal to read the whole Bible through. I have never been able to do it so far. I really want to, but it takes commitment to get through some of those Old Testament books. I have a Chronological Bible that I really like so I am making myself a calendar and trying to see if I can do it this year. This is the Bible I have. It has tons of information to go along with each book and I love all that insight and history it has in it! I'm a history nerd. haha

Speaking of the Bible and religion...have you seen this yet? It was all over Facebook today but I loved it!

2-Another thing I'm hoping I can do this year is get back to some of the fun crafty stuff I used to do. I can sew and crochet and I've done tons of cross-stitching. But I haven't done any of that in so long! I really enjoy it, so hopefully this year somehow I can squeeze those things back into my life.

We'll see.

Last night I got to keep this sweet boy while Ashley and John went to a Bobcats game...

He is walking all over the place now. It is so amazing how one day they just get the hang of that and off they go! No matter what toys we have, none of them is as much fun as when we just pull out the pots and pans. He likes the simple things the best!

Tomorrow is my last day of school this week since it's the end of the quarter. Friday is a teacher workday. And Monday we have off for Martin Luther King day. Woo hoo! Yay for short weeks and long weekends!


  1. I never really make resolutions either. I make lists of things I want to accomplish each season but I don't make actual resolutions because I always end up failing! Good luck with your 2 items this year.

    Pots & Pans are always a favorite with the kiddos. Sometimes I think us parents make life too complicated. If we could all just see through the eyes of a child :)

    Enjoy your long weekend, I know I'm going to try to!

  2. I did see that video today and I thought it was amazing! I definitely shared it on my facebook page. Love your blog...very cute design! I'm going to look into getting a chronological Bible, thanks to you:)

  3. SO much truth in that video! LOVE!!!!

  4. Makes me feel better to know I'm not the only one that keeps trying to read through my Bible every year and still haven't. LOL I'm doing it this year - ask me whenever you think about it if I'm caught up on my reading, k?? :) So far - I haven't missed a day!!

    Amelia would still beat on pots and pans if I let her. HAHA! That grandbaby of yours is PRESH. Have a fun day at school without the kiddos tomorrow! :)

  5. I loved that video and posted it on FBook as well. I can't believe how big David is getting. And walking? My word. He is precious!
