2012 Resolution Check-In: A Guest Post from Mandy

I am sure that, by now, all of you recognize Mandy from Mommy Musings. She is a girl-Mom and another favorite daily read of mine. She is also a fellow Jersey girl, and I just love her for that! Today, she's rounding out our week with a post about the resolutions that she made for 2012, and how she did with keeping up with them! Please stop over and show Mandy and her girls some love!

I could not be more excited to guest post for Pam while she's down in Florida {though I'd much rather be down there with her}

For those of you who don't know me, I'm Mandy, the voice over at Mommy Musings.  

I'm a Jersey girl {who actually lives not that far from where Pam grew up!} with two little girls {Emmy and Charlie}.  I'm a former teacher turned SAHM and always supporting my cop husband Skip!

I'm a big fan of this time of year as I love a fresh start.  I make resolutions every year and this year is no different. 

I also like to take a look back at last year's resolutions to see how I faired.  That's what I'm here to do today!  So let's take a look. 

2012 Resolutions
1. Get back into pre-baby shape.
Done!  Now I'm not totally happy with my body and it's always a work in progress.  But I lost the rest of my baby weight in February of 2012 and have been working on toning it!

2. Organize and de-clutter the house.
This is definitely something I worked on and got much better at this year.  Skip and I still want to tackle the attic but a lot of things were donated this year!

3. Take more pictures and videos.
Still bad with the videos...hangs head in shame:(  I haven't been taking more pictures with my good camera but there have been more than enough I Phone pics taken!

4. Take more time with Skip.
I don't think married people with two kids ever get enough date nights out, but we definitely do get out regularly.  We make sure to spend quality time at home together too. 

5. Be more in the moment.
This is something I am always thinking about and making a conscious effort to do.  I've definitely gotten better about it over the year! 

6. Make sure those around me know how much I love them.
I really did make more of an effort with those I love this year, and I hope they noticed!

Overall pretty good this year!  How are you about keeping up with your resolutions?
