HAPPY 2014!
I can't believe it's the end and a beginning. I always have a hard time with the New Year's Resolutions. It's great and all, but at the same time, we should always be striving to have goals.
Nic asked me (on our anniversary 12.27) what some of my goals are for the new year.
Uh....hadn't really thought about it.
Of course he had and explained some of his goals.
We talked about goals that we wanted to accomplish in our marriage/family. It got me thinking...
What do I want to accomplish in 2014? 
Here's what I came up with: 1 goal per month. 12 goals (well not technically). They are attainable and I have the time to accomplish them. If I'm not perfect, that's ok. The reason I say "not technically" is because one of my goals I'm not giving myself a month to complete. I started the Book of Mormon a few months ago, and I will finish it this year! I will go through spurts of reading everyday, and then I will stop. So this one is an ongoing goal. 
On to the list:

JANUARY: Read the Ensign. All of it. Cover to cover. Not just the first presidency and VT message.
FEBRUARY: Read 1 new book (I'm a slow reader).
MARCH: Write 5 handwritten letters.
APRIL: 30 Day Marriage Challenge (Pinterest find)
MAY: Turn off all electronics 30 minutes before bed.
JUNE: Find a cleaning schedule (like this one) and stick to it!
JULY: Finish Book of Mormon.
AUGUST: Find 5 new Gluten Free recipes and try them.
SEPTEMBER: Don't use cell phone while driving. No texting. No phone calls (unless emergency).
OCTOBER: No soda during the week. Only on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
NOVEMBER: No eating after 9 PM.
DECEMBER: Hold FHE every Monday.

Here's to a new year! The past is in the past. Let's see what the future holds.

I like these. Nice thinking. And one/month seems totally doable! I'll be rooting you on.
