New Year's Resolution {Linky}

I am linking up with First Grade Nest and A Peach for Teach for their New Year's Resolution Linky parties!!!









A Personal Goal

One of my personal goals is to be stronger in my faith.  I want to read my bible a more, pray a little harder, participate in more church activities.  I want to be sure that I am giving the best of myself to my faith and not just the minimum.

Another Personal Goal

I really need to work on saving more money.  I would definitely say that out of my husband and I, that I am the spender.  I need to work on being more frugal and not purchasing things that really are not a necessity.  This includes things for myself, my children, and my classroom.  I probably spend a small fortune on my classroom every year.  I never really keep up with it all probably out of fear seeing how much I actually do spend.

Another Personal Goal

I would love for our family to eat out less and work out more.  Don't get me wrong I do cook, probably more than a lot of people.  I would say on average we eat out about 3-4 meals a week.  Usually toward the weekend time frame.  I normally am good about cooking during the week but come Friday I am done.  Then I always find an excuse on Saturday and usually on Sundays we eat out after church.  I know that if we could cut some of those out it could help out with goal #2.  I would also like to work out more.  I am really bad about going through what I like to call "SPURTS".  This is where I work out a few weeks then stop for a few weeks, then work out for a few weeks … well you get the idea.  I really could stand to get a routine down.

Another Personal Goal

I would love to be able to build my blog and TpT following in 2014.   I hope I can keep my creative juices flowing.  

A Professional Goal

I am already an organized person for the most part.  Then only thing that lacks organization in my classroom is my art supplies.  It is in baskets but it all mixed together.  I want to separate all my supplies by categories like all buttons in a group, all pipe cleaners in a group.

Another Professional Goal

Since this is my states first year using Common Core I would really like to go even more in depth and learn what it truly all about.


So there you have my goals for 2014!!!  I can't wait to read your goals for 2014.  Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.  Be sure to link up.   I {heart} comments and followers!!

  1. Save more money and eat out less…. Those are goals for me this year, too! Luckily, they kinda go hand-in hand. Eat out less = more money! :)

  6. I am so like you when it comes to eating out. My friends are actually jealous of me b/c I cook most nights (Sun-W normally). As it gets closer to the weekend and I've cooked 4 nights straight I want to grab something or go out so I don't have to cook and hubby doesn't have to clean up! But, we've decided to try to eat out once a week. Two yrs ago, we decided that we would eat healthy at all meals during the week and on 1 night, normally Saturday we could go out and eat anything we wanted. We did a good job at it for 7 months! We saved $300 to take with us on our trip to Florida and we both lost weight me (35lbs.) and hubby (45lbs.). Then, we went on va-cay and it went downhill!! We're back on it this year beginning Monday - first day back to work.
