New Year, New Goals

Today I'm linking up with Jen to share some of my New Years Resolutions. For some reason, I am not a huge fan of the word "resolution", I prefer to set goals instead. ;)

She's asked us to share one personal goal and one blogging goal, which I think is the perfect amount. Last year, my husband and I made a very adventurous list, and while we did well on somethings, for example saving money to buy a house, we didn't do so well on other things, like keeping a cleaning schedule.  You will find my blogging and personal goals below.
My blogging goal is to be more active on my Facebook Fan Page.  There are lost of times throughout the school year where I get really busy and posting on my blog happens less often.  My fan page is a great way for me to share things with my followers quickly and in a more personable way!  I started this resolution last night and I'm loving the interaction that is happening already! :) I'd love it if you checked out my Facebook page, you can find it {here}

I am also going to take one night a week to ignore my TpT and  classroom projects, my blog, and spend time commenting on all the blogs I love! 

I think I can sum up my personal goal for the New Year best in one little word. 
 This one is so hard for me! I am the type of person who thinks that she can do it all but doing it all wears you out!  This is my mantra for the New Year....

I love blogging, I love creating products for my classroom and sharing with others via Teachers Pay Teachers or Teachers Notebook, I love coaching Girls on the Run, I love being our Student Council sponsor, I love being a dog mom and I love being a wife.  However, that is a LONG list of things on my plate.  This upcoming year, I need to do a better job of scaling back a little bit on some of the extras in my life to fully enjoy the wonderful life I've been blessed with!   

What is a goal that you have for this upcoming year? I'd love to hear it in the comments below!  


  1. I need to remind myself that I can do anything, and not everything too! I'm getting better at saying "NO"... but I still try and do too much!

  2. Balance sounds like a great plan. Also, I stink at facebook. Maybe I should make that one of my goals, too? We shall see! Happy New Year to you!

  3. I love that little quote. I am much like you and thing I am superwoman. It totally wears you down and makes it hard to give everything you do your all! Cheers to a new year and being kind to yourself!

  14. Hi Lisa,

    I love that you are going to take time to comment to other bloggers!!! That's what we are doing also! For a long time, my friends and I would blog stalk and not comment, but we decided to make that change and comment and give kudos to those blogs we love...yours included! You do a fabulous job...I can't wait to see what 2013 brings to your blog!
