Hello 2011!

Hello everyone! It's 2011 and I hope the year is off to a good start for you. I've had an amazing 3 months spending my time at home full time. And just this week, it's was back to work. And it feels pretty good. I'm only working two days a week and I think it's perfect. Though it's been hard to get back into the swing of things, it's been good to have a solid routine back.

As with every New Year, I like to set goals going forth. It helps me gain focus and perspective on my life. I also like to set goals I will complete. I never like looking back on the previous year not having completed one of my goals. Here are some of the goals I have this year:

  1. In May, Casey and I will celebrate our 10 year anniversary. {seriously! Where has the time gone?!} I resolute that we will go somewhere awesome without the kids by the end of the year.
  2. Last year, I vowed to workout more. Then surprise, surprise! I got pregnant. I sucked at working out. This is the year. Watch out world. We are setting up a mini gym in our basement and I want to work out 3-4 times per week.
  3. Eat less meat. I want to explore a more balance diet by eating meat 3-4 times per week.
  4. Keep things simple. I worked really hard to simplify last year, and I want to keep that theme in my life. I continually have to remind myself when asked to take on more whether I am able to, or not. And if it's really worth it. {Here's a secret... it's not worth it 9 out of 10 times}
Now that I have two kids, it seems like time moves faster than it ever did before. Has anyone else experienced this? It's a crazy thing to see my boys growing at rapid speeds. Porter is 3 months today, and next month, Caden will turn 3 years old. I love these little boys with all my heart. I hope the world slows down a little bit so we can enjoy the now.

I'm so glad you get to ease back into work with 2 days. I did 2.5 when Levi came and it was doable. Your little fam is gorgeous and you look fab! Happy New Year and good luck with your goals! I just asked Drew to order me Just Dance 2 for my anniversary gift with the thought of working out a bit more this year, hopefully it works!

Glad to hear you guys are doing well. It was nice to see you both on Sunday. Maybe for another goal would be to get kicked out of Wahoo branch so you can come back to Mahoney (just a thought).

Is it just me or is Casey using his leg to keep Caden contained :-). 2011 will be great! I love Porters cheeks!
