Happy New Year!!! 13 Resolutions for 2013 Link Up

Happy New Year!!  I honestly can't believe that it is 2013 already!!  I love the new year.  It is a time where you can start over and change your life.  Last year I didn't make any resolutions, and it just felt wrong.  So now I am back to making resolutions and that makes me happy.  So I am linking up with Sarah@ Love, Sarah K and Andrea@Mostly Happenstance for a 13 Resolutions link up. 

1. Stop drinking sodas and energy drinks for a year.  I have done this before and did GREAT, but I am convinced that I am an addict.  Like I will say that I will only have one coke....and OMG I can't stop drinking them.  Just say NO to sodas and energy drinks! 

2. Lose 50 pounds.  That might sound like a lot, but I have a year to do it.  I have just got to get my butt in gear.  I am going to start working out...stop laughing...I really am!! 

3. Start a healthy eating lifestyle.  This will go hand in hand with my weight loss resolution.  I am going to start cooking my meals and not eating out as much.

4. Plan a beautiful but affordable wedding.  I have to get on this one ASAP...considering my wedding is in MAY!!!  Hahaha.

5. Get a house with Dustin.  I am excited about this one.  I can't wait to start my new life with him! 

6. Get a job.  This one is super important!  I need a job like yesterday!  I am going to work hard on this one!

7. Read 30 books.  Last year I read 20 books just 10 books shy of my 30 book goal.  I am really going to try harder to read more.

8.  Do more pinterest crafts.  I want to have a wedding and home full of pinterest things.  I have so many things pinned, I just need to make time to do them. 

9. Take Ashton on a great vacation.  We are already planning a trip to Virginia and Washington DC in March, so I just need to make sure this happens!  I want to take him to all the popular Smithsonian Museums and the National Zoo. 

10. Start a new tradition.  I am making a jar that we can put different notes in through out the year, and we will read them next New Year's Eve. 

11. Make time for my blog.  I want to grow my blog and be a great blogger.  That means I need to make time to blog.  At night I need to start pre-writing blogs. 

12. Strengthen my relationship with God.  I need to find a good church family and really start getting closer to the Lord.  I think that is very important in having a happy life.

13. Work on loving myself.  It is time for me to be happy with me.  I am getting married this year and in order for me to have a great relationship, I need to love me.  So this is the year that I stop downing myself all the time, and start loving myself. 

What are your resolutions??  No matter what your resolutions are this year, make sure that you make 2013 a great year!!

Happy New Year Dani!

You can definitely accomplish these goals! I used to be addicted to sodas (and coffee too), but once I got over the month of headaches I have been so happy to not drink one. It's very hard to believe, I know, and every now-and-then I crave one, but I feel so much better without them.

Thanks for linking up with us :)
