We should get jerseys cause we make a good team
But yours would look better than mine,
cause you're outta my league
And I know that it's so cliche to tell you that everyday
I spend with you is the new best day of my life
...
And I'm racking my brain for a new improved way
To let you know you're more to me than what I know how to say
You're OK with the way this is going to be
This is going to be the best thing we've ever seen
If anyone can make me a better person you could
All I gotta say is I must've done something good
I came along one day and you rearranged my life
All I gotta say is I must've done something right
I must've done something right
(Relient K)
...

so...
somethings I'd like to improve/learn/work-on/do this year...
also known as New Years Resolutions...

*and please note, I like to make these lists, but I'm not so much a pressure-ones-self type of girl, so it's a laid back list...please don't yell at me next January if I've not completed even half of it.
Because trust me, I won't.

Esther quote:
resolutions.
should be happy colored pen filled squares of FUN
not pressure...

I would like to learn to knit.
I would like to learn to sew.
I want to scrapbook more...at least once a week.
I want my photos printed. caught up. and in albums.
I want to work on my organization.
(specifically in regards to menu planning, preparation and grocery shopping...ick. I'm bad at this)
I want to take a vacation with my family.
(*a vacation that doesn't constitute staying in a hotel for soccer or baseball)
I'd like to work on getting in better shape.
(cliche, but true-che)
I want to read more...1-2 books a month sounds like a reasonable goal.
I want to draw some.
I want to be more present in the now, and focus less on the future.
I would like to work on being friendlier...even when I don't feel like it...but without being fake.
(is that possible? sometimes I come off as being "not nice"...I know....shocking huh?)

happy colored typewritten lines of FUN...
here is to 2010.
Cheers!

ps. the chocolate fountain...really
best.
thing.
ever.
I'm just saying...

pps. I can not believe school starts tomorrow. Tomorrow morning is going to be brutal.

hey e! love the picture, so cool! my girls are jealous of the choc. fountain! great, now I know our next purchase! ha!
I just caught up my girls photo albums to 2009! Now I need to buy a few more. AND I need to get some scrapbooks to put all those layouts in....My goals are soooooo similar, gosh we are alike!
One of our family goals is to take a family beach house vacation, only an hour away on Lake MI! I have wanted to do this for about 5 years or longer!
love your happy list of goals!
