Newlywed Resolutions–LAST CHANCE!

In case you didn’t know, there are only 8 more Wednesdays before Christmas.

That means if you haven’t yet accomplished your New Year’s resolutions, it’s time to do that.

Here’s a sneak peak back at our resolutions:

5. Write at least five things that are just for me. I can worry about what to use them for later, if anything.

6. Run more races. I’d love to do another half…maybe a full 26.2? I’m young now, and my knees and ankles and hips will only get worse, right? I only ran 1 or 2 in 2011, and they were fun, so I’m ready for more.

7. Finish reading 8 books that I ALREADY own and have squished into our bookshelf. I’m terrible about buying new books instead of reading ones I already own but haven’t read.

See? It’s full.

8. Use more coupons and take advantage of price matching. I also need to do a better job of keeping track of how much we spend and save.

I can tell you we have NOT accomplished everything on our list yet. Yikes. I’m still working on it. And trying to focus on making measurable progress so I’ll have some things to share with you in January when it comes time to make our resolutions for next year…

Here’s a fun game, which resolutions do you think I have or haven’t accomplished this year? I’d love to hear your guesses!

So what about you? Have you checked in our your resolutions recently? How are you feeling about that progress? Have any you totally gave up on? Let me know!

(Also, as a side note, progress is coming along on the new blog home. I can’t wait to reveal it to you guys, and start getting excited…word on the street* is that there will be a little *giveaway* to help celebrate the opening!)

*And by street, I mean the winding pathways of semi-crazy-semi-organized blog thoughts in my head. 🙂

Sharing Some Love…

Hi guys, thanks for reading my blog.

Did you know that I’m super thankful to have you guys to talk to all the time about everything I’m learning about being a wife?

You didn’t?

Well, I’m super, duper thankful you’re here reading this post!

Oh, you said you did know?

Well, I’m still super, duper thankful for you.

Did you know that I’ve had two nights this week of lying in bed listening to Hubs snore because I just wasn’t tired/comfortable/able to sleep?

Did you know that this is the first time in my life that I can remember not being able to sleep for no reason? (I often can’t sleep when I’m upset, but I wasn’t upset, I promise!)

It’s okay that you guys didn’t know those last few things, I hadn’t told you until now.

Anyway, now that I’ve rambled on for awhile and proclaimed my love for all you readers out there, (and for those of you that leave comments, I respond to every one!) I want to let you know about another marriage blog that’s been super encouraging to me.

Though I’ve never met Merritt, the author, in person, I still consider her a friend. She’s encouraging and insightful in her posts, and she offers great perspective in what it means to be a Godly wife that’s actively pursuing a better relationship with her husband every day, not just when times are tough, or when times are good. Plus, she’s a faithful reader with great insight to share on the challenges I share with you all here.

I encourage you guys to check out her blog and read what she has to say. You can tell her I sent you.

Plus, now is a great time to visit her site, because she’s having a giveaway of some great books about how to really make marriage work!

So go there and check it out! But if you win and I don’t, I might ask you to send the book my way when you’re done with it.

(Just kidding.) Sort of.
