New Year's Resolutions!


I'm running behind a bit on blog posts. Just got Christmas up! On to Anniversary and New Year's Resolutions. I came down with a cold right before New Years. Luckily I was well enough for a weekend with family and friends to start the New Year. The following Monday, Lily and I were hit with bronchitis (we think) and now Cort and Johnny have it, too. So we've moved into survival mode and haven't quite gotten the start on New Year's goals, but it has given me more time to think about them!



1. Spend more time with this guy! We celebrated our 4th anniversary December 27th. Can't believe it has gone by so fast! We ate dinner at the Harvest Restaurant at Thanksgiving Pointe. The filet mignon was so yummy! Our goal is to have one temple date a month and one fun date a month.


2. The classic New Years resolution: Lose weight. Loving my new glasses, but not so much loving my double chin. We are fully stocked with P90, Wii Fit, Wii Active, Biggest Loser, Weight Watchers .... it's going to happen this year ... as soon as we get over our colds! At least we are starting the year off eating healthy.

3. Enjoy the fun moments a little more! I love being a mom and know what a blessing it is. So this year I want to be a better mom. A happier mom who is a better teacher and a better playmate! I


4. Focus on the Savior more. Have more quiet moments where I can be still. Cort played the Baby Jesus in the nativity this year. His cousins - ages 2 through 10 - sat so reverently around him. They were so still and quiet.

Those are some great goals, Tara!

I was wondering if you could get us some more information on those basement apartments in your ward. Can you e-mail me at breannabennett (at) gmail (dot) com? Thanks so much!

I love your goals, especially more date nights! I may have to copy that one :)

You guys are the best. I think you look great. What a happy family. You just make me so happy, Tara.

I'll miss you at Kristian and Reghan's engagment party in February, but I hope you get to go and see all of the family! I think they're sending e-vites to all the fam. They're in Utah.

I love making New Year's resolutions. I feel like I get to start over and make myself whoever I want this year. I will totally support you in exercise goals since I too am working on that (only training for a half marathon which to me is huge!). Good luck!
