New Year Resolutions + {Giveaway}!

So, how many of us have already given up on our 2013 resolutions? Hopefully none of us ;)
But if you have, don't be discouraged -- EVERY day is a new day and a new beginning...not just January 1st.

Most of my 2013 'resolutions' are more like goals. Things that I'd like to accomplish before the end of the year -- they aren't unrealistic. Discipline and self-control will be the keys.

Some of those goals include:

Losing weight and getting healthy.
To take it one step farther -- lose 30lbs by July.

Get organized!
I need to get everything in my life organized. I started towards the end of 2012, and I want it to be even better in 2013. My house, mostly. But also my time. Which brings me to my next goal... Click here to

Better time management.
And that includes blogging! But first, more time with God, and then prioritized time with my husband and son. Next will come work and then blogging. (which lead me to this giveaway below ;) )

Better home management.
I downloaded a complimentary copy of The Confident Mom's 2013 Weekly Household Planner and I cannot wait to start using it more this week (when I have time to sit down and put it in my binder!) This will allow me to sit down in the mornings, remind myself of what I need to get done, and do it. It will also help remind me through out the day of what I've done and what needs to be done. Be it cleaning, making the beds, meal planning or alone time with my Bible. This home management binder will also hold homeschooling information, emergency contact numbers, etc.
There will be one Weekly Household Planner in the below giveaway.

Read more
This is a resolution, not a goal. I have recently become addicted to Kindle on my PC -- there are just SO many good books (and many of them free!!) online...too many for me to read! One of my favorite reads has been Living a Virtuous Life -- Live like the Proverbs 31 Woman by Lori Ramsey. It was a wonderful devotional. One of my other favorites (which I haven't yet finished) is The Good Wife's Guide by Darlene Schacht (many of you know her as the Time-Warp Wife on facebook). It has blessed my heart so much and is certainly something I need to read right now. Darlene has been so kind enough to donate 5, FIVE!!, copies of her ebook to 5 wonderful winners in the below contest.

Stick to a budget -- be debt free!!
We are closer to this than we thought. One of our vehicles will be paid off next month and the other will also be paid off before the end of the year. This makes my heart so happy! However, we do have a couple of *cringe* credit cards that need to be paid off (nothing drastic, but still annoying). Our goal is to also pay those off by the end of this year and then cut them up and throw them away!! To do this, we've created a strict budget and hope to stick to it pretty closely through out the entire year. This means more home cooked meals on the weekends, less "non-essential" spending (unneeded clothes, extra groceries, movies, etc). 

So, these are my top goals and resolutions for 2013, and I pray I/we can stick to them.

With all of this said, I'm delighted to bring you our second giveaway on Boogers & Jesus!!
