New Year Resolutions

Well like every year, I'm setting some New Year Resolutions.  I am being realistic :) 

1. Cook meals at home vs. eating out.  This one is IMPORTANT.  We eat out WAY too much.  This past week though, we ate at home for every meal.  The other part of this resolution is to make actual meals vs. quick things all the time like PB & J or pasta and sauce.  So tonight my resolution began.  I bought a cook book today at B&N (Quick Fixes with Mixes).  I also have Flat Belly Diet! Cookbook in my amazon cart. I'm excited to get this one.  So tonight I made a chicken / spinach pasta bake and it was so yummy and super easy to make.  I was proud of myself.  1 meal down for 2011....many many more to come!

2. Staying organized.  At work this is NOT a problem.  At home and in my personal life - HUGE problem.  I have clutter piles everywhere!  Seriously, it's bad.  I want to get a calendar to organize bills, birthdays, appts., and major events.  I also want to stay organized when it comes to my "LaceyBug Creations" stuff...(knitting, crocheting, scrapbooking, crafting).  I have started by putting my Etsy invoices in a 3 ring binder by month.  I will also need to manage my MemoryWorks TeamWorks documents as well in a 3 ring binder (I am Team Leader again this year...soexcited about the team!!).

As of right now those are my 2 resolutions.   I don't want to overwhelm myself.  :)  I think both though are time consuming and need the focus to make them succeed.  I look forward to what the new year brings me!  Can't wait to do some more cooking!  I need mixing bowls now :)

Those sound like great resolutions for the new year. I love crock pot meals as they are easy and I don't have to stand over a stove with 2 kids hanging onto me.
