Goodbye 2009, Hello 2010!

| |
Last year I wrote a list of things I hoped to accomplish this year, and posted it on my blog, here’s what it said and how I did:

This year (last year) I hope(d) to:

Learn how to cook I learned a few recipes, but need to learn more!
Eat better … Until I got pregnant (Spawnie’s fault!)
Give up caffeine
-Read the good books daily – I SUCKED at this. But I did have a good streak in the middle/ toward the end of the year.
Go on more real vacations Trip out west, vacation on a lake, and Caribbean cruise, Chicago, Atlanta, not bad!
Enjoy one of the last years without spawn best year of marriage so far!
Learn Yoga Started in August!
-Exercise more (aka ever)- Still working on a daily routine.
Keep a good blogging streak It’s been fun!
-Volunteer more- I can do better
Babysit And I did this A LOT more than I thought I would
-Be a better wife- Can do better.
-Get back into the habit of writing a daily journal- I did it on and off, but does blogging count?
-Start a gratitude journal- Still need to work on.
Pray more Happy to say I have!
-Be brutally honest- I’m not sure what I meant by this, but I don’t like this resolution…
*Get knocked up It was a maybe but I did it!

*= maybe

So I did a lot, but there’s still a lot to work on! 2010 I hope to:
-Prepare to be a good mom
-Learn how to cook more healthy meals for my family
-Take a prenatal yoga class
-Create and stick with a fitness plan
-Take a birthing class with my husband
-Have a healthy baby
-Save enough money to be able to take a full maternity leave
-Not totally neglect Snoop because of Spawnie
-Visit New York City
-Write in my gratitude journal
-Learn how to sew baby things
-Finish all of the hairbows I owe people for donating to March of Dimes (by Jan/Feb)
-Keep enjoying blogging, don’t make it “work”
-Visit the temple more
-Read my scriptures daily
-Prepare and execute weekly family home evenings
-Find ways to serve others
-Enjoy being a new mom

So there you have it! My list is longer, and funny how so much is about “mommy” stuff! WEIRD! What are your resolutions?

  1. Great list. I’ve been trying to teach myself to sew for almost a year now. My sewing machine and I have a love/hate relationship. I can finally sew in a straight line though! My goal:: Make a pillowcase dress for my daughter. Soon, hopefully! My resolutions are to keep working on my sewing and take more pictures.

  2. You are a busy, busy lady! I think that blogging most certainly does count as keep a personal journal. Anything more personal you could put in your own private journal, but this chronicles your life very well.

  3. Yahoo! Take that Bradley class with your husband and I promise you’ll not regret it. Wish I lived close to you cause I’d cut you a good deal on the price;-) Starting my first series of classes in 2 weeks!
    Happy New Year and happy baby baking:-)

  4. Hello everyone, I’m new on the plan for the journey to mummyhood. One of my 2010 resolutions is to begin a healthy family with my lovely husband and on the journey meet other mothers-friends, on the blog, who can help me at any time of the day to cope in case of extra support.

    Nice list indeed, I wish you all the best Jenny, I’ve been reading your blog for a while and I enjoy the topics.

    Happy New 2010!!! :)))

  5. Love your list items, I found a few I think I should explore for my own! My resolutions are centered around getting my body baby-ready, and finishing the Baby Bucket List…woo hoo!

  6. Good luck on your list for this year. I often wonder how much more challenging it is for LDS that don’t live in what I call Mormon Ground Zero (that large spot around Temple Square and BYU). I have family that lives smack dab in the middle and it is easy for LDS activities to be prevalent in everything they do. Good luck and I hope you visit the temple more and get to those scriptures.
