I'm going to use this post as kind of a "confessions" or put myself out there kinda post. 
Recently I've had this urge to write. To put my feelings and thoughts down on paper (or some sort of black and white!). Even though I have these feelings, I'm not that great of a writer. I will sit down and put words on a page, then read it and think, "that sounded so much better in my head." But here is to organizing my thoughts on paper. 

One thing I would like to write is more blog posts. Share more about my life. Not that it is that interesting, but, being a stay at home mom, it would feel more like some human interaction, even if that interaction is just me, my thoughts and a computer. 

Another thing that I would like to write is children's books. My sister and I make some baby/children things. Swings. Bedding. Clothes... She has been way more successful at it then me. I seems to have too many interests. I will make one thing then have another idea and want to make something else. (And then I'm pretty much the only one who likes my ideas!) and kinda like this blog post, my intentions get redirected. So back on track. I think that if we added some cute stories about things we name out products after would be cute. We'll see if I ever get that dream off the ground. And plus, I have no idea how to even get a book published. 

Tonight is going to be a little start to me writing more. This will probably be nothing more then a memory for me to look back on in ten years and say, "wow, I knew nothing then!" Hopefully I learn a lot in the next ten years!!

I think about sharing things that I've learned about being a new mommy or struggles about being a new mommy and how I don't know what I'm doing. I've thought about sharing Asa's outfits and do #ootd for him. (That's outfit of the day.... I had to look it up, not long ago, to figure it out!) But for today, I'm just going to share my New Years resolutions. We're only 10 days into the new year, better late then never! 

1. Pray more. 
I was watching the Glenn Beck Program before Christmas and he was visiting with his wife about them. Resolutions that is... and he said that he didn't want to make some lame resolution like, loose weight or read my bible more. Not at those things are bad, but we (as humans) tend to just think about the broad things and then don't stick to them. Anyways.... It made since to me. So, with that being said, I want to talk to God more then I talk to myself in a day. Take time away from my own thoughts to listen to him. I know it will be hard, my mind goes a million miles in circles, but I'm in need of that!!

2. Cook. 
This is kinda two parts. I want to be better about thinking about meals (that different then meal planning, right?) and getting them on the table at a decent time. Asa needs that. Part two, I'm going through all my recipes, things I've clipped or printed off and stuck in a drawer never too be tried, and organize, try and toss. Or keep. I've started. I have a new note book that I've started writing all my go to recipes or Christmas recipes in where it is prettier and organized!! 
Oh and making a Christmas cookbook with all the stuff I grew up on.... Meal and treats... That way it's all in one spot!! Good gift for the fam too! 

Well, two is about all the resolutions I can muster. I would like to have clean my house more, but I know that I will break that before the month is over. Don't get me wrong, my house isn't that messy, just un-dusted. I do keep it picked up. And then I have a crawler that scatters things all over, but I usually pick up all toys and ect. after he goes to bed. We start fresh in the morning. 

Ok, I don't think I have anything else interesting to say. 



  1. I hear ya on the writing thing. I often feel like what I write is pretty lame and I wish I knew how to express myself better!
    I think the children's book idea is awesome! I will be so curious to know how that goes for you.
    I love your resolution of talking to God more than talking to yourself each day...what a great goal!
    Just know that I am always interested in what's going on in your little cotton patch corner of the don't feel like blogging is just you and the computer :)

  2. I know what you mean about writing, I've never thought of myself as a great writer.. But blogging was such a great way for me to have some interaction, and get things out of my head. I've missed that, and miss the interaction with other bloggers. I'm going to try my hand at it again!
