I've Returned! With Resolutions and "Currently"!

Ok... So I haven't posted in almost 3 months.... I'm sorry! There were many a'Saturday that I thought about updating but just didn't. My creative juices felt like they were lacking and I was just down-right tired. So I ignored my cute lil' blog for too long... That is going to change!

My 2013 resolutions include 1) blogging more and 2) eating less... YEP. Very original, right??

My boys and I decided we ALL resolve to be more active this year. This includes walking around the block and riding our bikes. We live in a coastal town and are walking distance to the beach. I see a lot of walking/riding to beach picnics in our future! Also, we are changing our eating habits. We went grocery shopping today and loaded our cart fresh veggies and fruit, light yogurts, nuts and cottage cheese for snackage, and lean meats and fish for dinner.... WE SHALL SEE!

Any "life style change" tips you want to share with me?? PLEASE, PLEASE DO! I need the help and the encouragement! :) 

It's a family effort this time (Well, kinda... I haven't quite clued my hubby in on this yet-- I'm hoping he doesn't notice our bread-free dinners... hehehe) and I'm excited about the changes we're making. Also on our resolution list: making God more present in our day to day lives!! My parents bought my kiddos a daily devotional for Christmas called "Jesus Calling: 365 Devotions for Kids" and we are LOVING it. It's not too wordy (we all know how fleeting children's attention spans can be) and has a verse for them to look up. My kiddos are 10 and 12 and they love it. I LOVE IT, TOO!
Honestly, I have nothing teaching related to talk about... Sorry! But I do have a Currently for ya! For those of you that read Farley's blog at Oh Boy 4th Grade you know what I'm talking about... If you haven't checked her out yet (which is surprising because she's a blogging super-star!), get on over there and view blog-someness!
