Thanks to Candace over at Mama Mia, I found out about a resolution give away being hosted over at burbmom.net.

All you have to do is post about your resolutions (or else just comment on her blog) for your chance to win!

My 2009 Resolutions:

*Lose 11 lbs by June (my birthday

While I have 11 lbs to lose, its not going to be easy. I haven't been that small in about 10 years or so, and its been put on gradually. I'm not sure I really have the motivation either. I'm not overweight, just over what I'd like to be. And Mr. Right of course thinks I'm fine the way I am so no encouragement there!

I did find a site (from a fellow blogger on Wednesday - now I can't remember who, sorry!) where you can track your meals and your excercise. WWW.Sparkpeople.com. No quessing about calories consumed/burnt. Just enter what you've eaten and it does the math for you!

*Open a Roth IRA

This is something I have been working toward for a while. Mr. Right likes the VanGuard Roth the best, and you have to have $3K to invest. While that doesn't sound like a lot, I've paid for a wedding and merged budgets with a real estate agent. Right now a cushion emergency fund is more important, but I hope he does well enough that we can have both.

*Have weekly (indepth) Bible study with Mr. Right

How should I expect him to learn if he's never presented the material?


  1. Good luck on the resolutions. I used to make them and then never kept them. I hear small short term goals are the way to go. The only thing I say every year is what ever comes my way, I will try and glorify God. Have a happy new year!

  2. Happy new year! Going thru the book Love and Respect by Emmerson Egrich (sp?)would be a great foundation for you and Mr. Right.

  3. Good goals. I highly encourage you to do the Roth (BEST investment tool ever for our generation). And good for you for working to share the gospel with Mr. Right.

  4. Good points! I've never really studied much on a Roth fund, so if you do that, let me know how hard it is to open, lol!

    But I do understand the weight thing. I want to lose about 15 lbs, just to get down to my "fighting weight" (as my dad calls it, haha). Just to be healthier and in better shape.

    Oh, and kudos to you for wanting to do a weekly Bible study with your hubby. It will bless both of you.


what up yo?
