The Lazy song

That's my summer song. Well, minus the inappropriate lyrics. We slept in almost every day, went to the pool a ton and ate more ice cream than I'm willing to admit. I gained nearly 10 pounds and you know what? It was one of the best summers of my life. I spent some great quality time with my husband and kids and I am so very blessed to have been able to enjoy it.
With that being said, I am so ready for routine again. And with school starting this week, it is back to the swing of things!:). I feel like it's new years eve again, so I am going to make some resolutions to add to spending time with my family:)
No particular order.

1) Stop neglecting the blog! I know, I know I have said this before, but it's time to get back in the saddle. The truth is I LOVE to blog. I just gotta get back into doing it every night.

2) Get my hiney running. I am planning on doing another half marathon this December, so I gotta get serious about it. I actually have started running again. I just need to be consistent. And I want to lose about 40-50 pounds, so it's time to work hard! I'm lucky to have a friend who meets me at the Y. Thanks, Sarah W for the inspiration!!:)

3) Spend time in God's word every day. I read somewhere that if you read 20-30 minutes a day you can finish the gospels in one month. Pretty cool. I just need to make time. After all, He is the most important!!

4) Sew and craft more and open that etsy shop!! Just gotta do it!:)

I think that's enough for now. I'm a person who loves lists and making a schedule for myself. It's just sticking to it is the biggest thing:). And going to bed and getting up earlier! I'm such a night owl!
Anyway. Here's to day 1:)

We have open house Tonight so I'll post pictures later:)

You can do anything. I believe in you. As they said in the movie "The Help," and I just love this quote, "You is kind. You is smart. You is important." It also says as women we can do anything we set our mind, too. We just need to keep lifting each other up.

Our family has had the same kind of summer as your sweet family {and I too, have the 10 extra pounds to prove it. Ha!} It has been an awesome summer, but I'm excited to get back to a routine, as well. Thanks for the inspiring post--lots of things on your list that I need to incorporate into my life as well. =)
