Happy New Year everyone!!!

I have several resolutions this year and I'm posting them here to help keep myself accountable.

1) Exercise Daily. I'm not going to focus on weight loss, just getting exercise everyday and shaping up.

2) Declutter and Simplify my home. Which I'm hoping will do the same for my day to day life.

3) No Shopping! I have plenty of stuff in this house already, I can go shopping in my own basement. And clothes for myself, I have tons too, especially if I get in better shape.

4) Learn to Knit. I know how to crochet, but I really would like to be able to knit.

So there you go, my resolutions for 2011. Be sure to ask me through out the year how I am doing with them, just to keep me on my toes.

Do you have any resolutions?

Have a lovely weekend,



  1. I'm with you on the getting in better shape and decluttering! I'd love to learn to knit too, sure wish I would of had my Mom teach me before she passed. Check out my post on simple starts!

    Here's wishing you success on your resolutions in 2011.
    In the back of my mind there are resolutions swirling around, but nothing actually written down. I'm just a bit of a procrastinator.
    Hugs :)

  4. Found your lovely heartwarming blog tonight. Thank you so much for sharing the story about your son, Nathan. I really appreciate being able to read it. May your family enjoy a warm, safe, cozy and peaceful New Year.
    God Bless,

  5. Tiff, getting toned up is my goal too. Feel free to make yourself accountable on FB with Lorna and I, I'd welcome someone else to hold me to the fire! :D

  6. So true. I have bought less in 2010 and will do the same in 2011. I gave away most of my clothes last year as I no longer work and don't need a lot of those office things. I buy myself one new pair of shoes a season. Trying to just be thriftier. Contentment is my motto. The less I shopped, the happier I became.

  7. Hi Tiffany,
    I have been following you for awhile now, I find you to be very inspiring. Anyhow, I don't make many resolutions, but I have a big one I want to kick this year. I won't speak it outloud, but it's something I need to do.
    I have been decluttering myself, it's something that takes time, and don't be too hard on yourself. I think your home is lovely, and I admire you for learning to knit.
    I am a leftie, so I think I wouldn't be as capable of picking that up! I do lots of other crafting, but I think my husband would pitch a fit if I picked up one more hobby! LOL!
    I have definately become more frugal, we are on a budget, and it has to have a purpose I guess.
    I have many things to complete at our home, but it all takes time and some of that green stuff.
    I hope you are having a good week.
    Stop by my blog sometime if you get a chance.
