2009: New Year Resolutions

Yes, I'm going to be typical and post a blog about how I want to be different starting in the new year. Ever since we started the process of buying our house, I feel like life hasn't stopped. I'm constantly busy, and feeling like I don't have time to just stop and be still. I realize how silly that sounds being that I only work part time, and when I'm not working I'm just watching TV or being on the internet- which is ridiculous! Anyway, here is my list of things that I'd like to do better on starting in 2009...

- fall more in love with Christ/read my Bible more
- get to know my hubby more and more
- Get to bed at a decent hour and get up early
- exercise
- eat a healthier diet
- spend more time with family and friends
- Find a hobby
-Make a reading list and actually read them!
-Be a more daring cook, and try out more recipes

Hold me to it folks! :-)

Life in a nutshell...

Well LOTS has happened since the last time I blogged... we got the keys to our house, and spent the first week painting and cleaning it to get ready for move in. Man was it exhausting!! The Saturday after painting we had a move in day, and a ton of friends and family came and helped us. It was such a blessing!!!!!!! So now we are basically all moved in... we still have a few base boards that need to be painted, but I'm hoping that will get done before Christmas (since we are having christmas at our house this year). On Saturday we got our new sofa and ottoman delivered, and it is SO comfortable! We just feel so blessed to be in our first home at Christmastime. The LORD is too good to us, and we are SO thankful. In other news: our dear friends the Ebersoles also just bought their first home. They were such a tremendous help to us while we were moving in, and so we are so glad that we now get a chance to help them. They got their keys last Thursday and are gonna take a few weeks to spruce things up (refinishing the wood floor and painting). It is SUCH a cute place, and I'm so happy for them!!!!!

Our kids (Emmi and Abbey), are doing well. I think since moving into the house that Abby has become a little more mellow. She still has her moments where she will scratch you and purr at the same time. haha! But she has been alot more cuddly. Emmi is growing and growing!!!! I think now she is about full size, and she is so smart. She loves going for walks and going to the dog park. We just love her to pieces!

Dave is well... ever since moving into our house he has just worked so hard on making it look beautiful. He spoils me really. Today dave is at a class (and will be the whole week), for peer fitness training for the fire department. I'm so proud of him.

Well, I think that is pretty much us in a nutshell right now. I'll update more after Christmas.
