How I did with my Resolutions of 2011

Before I go into how I did with my resolutions of 2011, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for the well wishes. We are excited, nervous but really happy with our decision to purchase an investment property. We are putting all of our faith in God that it will be successful and that we will be able to own more than one investment property in the future.

Moving along,

The below was my resolutions last year and I am proud to say that I didn't fail :)

1. Most and foremost, I need to build a stronger relationship with God. I don't think I've ever used the term "most and foremost" in a sentence before.

{I always want a stronger relationship with God so regardless of the year, this will always be a resolution or goal of mine}


2. Keep the communication doors open between the husband and I, to ensure that we always have a healthy and happy relationship.

{Our relationship is stronger than ever. If we continue to do what we're doing we are going to spend the rest of our lives annoying loving each other}


3. Get back in shape (workout 4-5 days a week) and choose healthier foods to eat.

{I lost 20 lbs! Yea, I did. I still did not get to my pre-wedding weight but I will do that in 2012 with continuing to work out 4-5 days per week and portion control. Here's some pictures for comparison from last year}

{2011 NYE, just look at my cheeks}







{2012 NYE}




4. Go natural

{I did it! Best decision for my hair, ever!}




5. Pay off 2 credit cards, those suckers suck.

{I paid off 3!}


6. Be the best friend, wife, family, me I can possibly be.

{This year, I made sure to spend a lot of time with friends and family. But of course, there is always room for improvement especially in the calling people on the phone department}


I'll write what my new resolutions are for 2012. Some might repeat but I have a feeling it will be more than 6. We shall see.
