Tuesday 10 - Ten New Year Resolutions

Happy New Year!! Welcome to 2013 - this is going to be the best year by far :)

The Austin Family Diary
I'm linking up with Lauren & Tiffany for the FIRST Tuesday Topics of 2013 - starting with Ten New Year Resolutions.

1. Lose weight and STAY at that weight. I want to lose 10 pounds and tighten up around my abs and thighs!

2. Read 52 books, one for each week. I've got sooo many I want to read!

3. Graduate with my Masters program by December. I've gotta get this degree under my belt and knock it out!

4. Learn how to sew. I want to make quilts!

5. Create a total of 52 products for my TeachersPayTeachers store - one for each week.

6. Create a craft per week. I love crafting and have so many ideas... just never do them!

7. Come up with 182 meal ideas for our meal board - this will help us to NOT go out to eat and give us variety for our meals! 

8. Blog at least 3 times a week about MEANINGFUL things. Not just posts that are about nothing... maybe about some goals I have, my family, what I'm doing currently, and so forth.

9. Take care of ME. This includes taking vitamins, drinking 64 ounces of water DAILY, and just eating better. I get headaches daily, stomachaches daily, and some days, really nauseous. SO, taking better care of me is a definite.

10. Travel to at least 3 places. This year I want to take as many trips as we can... even if it's to not so far away places. We're 2 hours from New Orleans... now how cool would it be to just visit? Same with Florida. We've got the time, why not do it now!?

Welp, that's it! Those are my 10 resolutions this year. Some of them are obviously very cliché, but I WILL accomplish each goal.

Have a great year, y'all!


  1. Absolutely love that meal board idea! Great goals for 2013!

  4. 52 books! Wow that is a lot! I looked into bowling green for my undergrad when I was considering swimming in college! Have a great 2013!!!

  5. I just added you on GoodReads - I love that site! Doing more crafts was a must have on my list, too :D Happy New Years!

  6. Stopping by from Tuesday Topics...I have similar resolutions. I didn't write all of them down though! 52 books??!! I told myself I would read 3! haha. I'm not a huge reader. And I love doing crafty DIY projects. I'm looking forward to posting about the ones that I am going to do in the near future! Can't wait to see some of yours.

  7. What some great goals you have for this year! Sewing is so much fun, and quilts are so rewarding to make! And 52 books, that is awesome! You go girl!

      It happens :) I'm glad you came by and are following along. It means a lot! As for the menu board... how does he/she like it?! I'm currently writing on my dry-erase frame with paint chips behind it, so it's a monthly planner... but if I'm going to have 182+ recipes for the year... I need something to hold them on besides under a magnet on my fridge! :)



I love love love receiving comments. I read each and every one of them! I also will try to respond to each one.. either on here or through e-mail! LOVE YOU ALL FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART <3
