New Year's Resolutions 2011

I learned a few things with my resolutions last year. For starters, I did really good keeping them! I think it was that I took things I wanted to do, or accomplish for the year. So I'm going to keep that tradition going. Here are my resolutions for 2011.

(1) This year I'm going to grow a garden! In fact, my hubbie is making me grow boxes!
(2) I am going to make one new craft a month. This way I can do whatever craft I like. Or as much crafting as I like. If it happens to be a really busy month, I can take my time getting only one craft done.
(3) I want to be up-to-date on my scrapbooking. Both picture and digital formats. I am finally going to make my wedding album! Won't that be a great 5th anniversary gift to me?
(4) I am going to send out queries to editors to see if I can get my book published. Once I'm finished editing it.
(5) I will continue to expand my cooking/baking skills. Some things I want to learn to make this year are sundried tomatoes, french pastries, hollandaise sauce, and sushi (and my hubbie really wants me to make beef jerky).
(6) I would really like to have a 2 year food supply and 72 hour kits.
(7) I am going to keep exercising at least 3 days a week.
(8) I will get into the habit of reading the Ensign every month.
(9) I am going to (with my hubbie) figure out and stick to a budget.

It's going to be a great year!!! Yeah for goals, I mean resolutions! :)

New Year's Eve

This year for New Year's we partied it up at Laraine and Andrew's! I was having too much fun to remember to take many pictures. But what I got captures the evening pretty well.

There was a lot of yummy food! Every good party includes delicious goods. Our party was no exception.

We spent the evening playing the Kinect. SO FUN!! The only problem was patiently waiting for your turn. We, of course, took a break in time to watch the ball come down in New York City.

Happy New Year!!
