11 Things

December 11 – 11 Things. What are 11 things your life doesn’t need in 2011? How will you go about eliminating them? How will getting rid of these 11 things change your life? (Author: Sam Davidson)

1. Facebook games
2. Cell phones with internet
3. Credit Card Debt
4. Cable t.v.
5. Store bought treats
6. ... I will have to get back to this one, we've already eliminated just about everything we don't need. 


December 10 – Wisdom. What was the wisest decision you made this year, and how did it play out? (Author: Susannah Conway)

I think that would be getting rid of our internet capable phones. Although, it hasn't happened yet! My husband is pretty attached to his. I feel that if we were to get just basic cell phones we would definitely save money, but also be a little closer to each other. My husbands nose is always stuck in front of his cell...


December 9 – Party. What social gathering rocked your socks off in 2010? Describe the people, music, food, drink, clothes, shenanigans. (Author: Shauna Reid)

Ha Ha! I don't think I have ever been to a party!

Beautifully Different

December 8 – Beautifully Different. Think about what makes you different and what you do that lights people up. Reflect on all the things that make you different – you’ll find they’re what make you beautiful. (Author: Karen Walrond)

I think the fact that I aspire to be a housewife and stay at home mom makes me different than a lot of moms I know. I love knowing that I am here trying to make our house as comfortable as possible for my husband when he gets home. No, dinner is usually always forgotten about; but my husband usually never has to lift a finger when he gets home and can relax!
Being a stay at home mom is a wonderful job. I would rather try to spend every minute with my son than to send him to a daycare where every child is put in the same category learning style. I want to figure out what is best for him and how he will learn best. 
The thing that close friends like about me is the fact that I always try to be there for them no matter what. 


December 7 – Community. Where have you discovered community, online or otherwise, in 2010? What community would you like to join, create or more deeply connect with in 2011? (Author: Cali Harris)

Community isn't something I thought of looking for this year. I would love to go to church more in 2011. Hopefully to one that is close. I really like The Rock Church but I feel its a little overwhelming. There are just too many people and it seems too hard for me to get involved. 

I am interested in taking a few photography classes in 2011 to build my confidence and knowledge.

Then there is also my son. I would like to get him into a homeschool meet-up group this coming year. He is so very curious and I just don't know what I should do to further his knowledge and curiosity. This group, I am sure, will also help me get a feel of what to do as far as homeschooling goes.


December 6 – Make. What was the last thing you made? What materials did you use? Is there something you want to make, but you need to clear some time for it? (Author: Gretchen Rubin)

The last thing that I made was snowflakes with my son. Just using paper and scissors. I would love to make a few baby clothes for the baby I am having in April. I just need to know the gender so I can begin! Hopefully I can find that out soon!

Let Go

December 5 – Let Go. What (or whom) did you let go of this year? Why? (Author: Alice Bradley)

I have let go of a few friends this year. I have realized that I just don't need their negativity in my life and it's best if I just let go.
