A New Year With New Possibilities-It Is Time To Be Held Accountable

Hello my sweet little blog that I have been way too busy to update lately, that is up until today when I finally decided that sitting on the couch for hours upon hours was exactly what my little body and mind needed. As 2011 came to an end last night I couldn't help but think that this Queen Bee had one heck of a year and that 2012 could potentially top it. Mr.Queen Bee & I are tying the knot on January 14 and I simply cannot wait. I have been dreaming of this "big day" for years and I truly cannot imagine marrying anyone other than Mr.Queen Bee. I can honestly say he is my soul mate, no doubt about it. With that said, things will hopefully be calming down a bit in a couple of weeks and I really want to be able to go into the New Year with my new hubby and start new traditions, habits and a lovely lifestyle. So today I start my 2012, 12 resolutions...yes 12 but ones that I know I can accomplish, plus that is why you are here my blog followers to hold me accountable for my resolutions.

1. Go on 1 date night a month, get dressed up, turn off cell phones and truly enjoy each others company. I cannot think of a better way to start a marriage, than tuning into one another without technology getting in the way.

2. Find ways to get the sufficient amount of protein daily to keep up my vegetarian lifestyle and keep the
lifestyle going for another year. I have officially been vegetarian for 7 months and can truly say I LOVE IT!

3. Pick 1 night a month to have a ladies night, with either 1 friend or 10 get together and have a girl gossip sesh. I learned at a young age that I will always need girlfriends, good strong girlfriends that I can count on. It is time to appreciate there friendships.

4. While I am not out on the town for a date night or ladies night, cook at home 4 nights out of the week at LEAST. Saving my new hubby and myself lots of money and calories :)

5. Go to church on a regular basis, Elevation Church that is! Fall more and more in love with the creator and dig in deeper.

6. Spend quiet time with myself in the mornings or even with Mr.Queen Bee if he is home. Get up earlier go for a walk with the dog, eat breakfast in the comfort of my home rather than at my desk and read my daily devotional.

7. Get back in the habit of working out 4 or 5 days out of the week. No one has ever said "I hate working out" after they leave the gym, that must be my motto from now on; all I have to do is get there and I already feel better.

8. Start enforcing no technology time in our household again. Some of you may know that for months prior to buying our new home, Mr.Queen Bee and I had a no technology after 10pm rule. Not only does it let your mind rest but it gave us a few minutes a night to talk without interruption.

9. Go visit all of my friends that live out of town or in different states, after all there are 53 weekends this year thanks to the leap year, I think I can make a few of those out of town weekends!

10. Stay in better touch with my amazing family. They are my biggest fan club and I wouldn't be who I am without any of them, letters, cards and phone calls are all in store for the new year.

11. Be more adventurous. Mr.Queen Bee loves adventure and its time we do something together that we can both enjoy, I will start searching for fun adventures tonight :)

12. Be the most patient, caring, loving and wonderful wife I can be. I cannot wait to start my life as a married woman and I want to show the world what a perfect marriage looks like. Mr.Queen Bee will be one very spoiled hubby come January 14th and I am so giddy over it, I may just go smooch his face right now-even though I might mess up his Xbox race ;)

Alright world, those are my 12 resolutions so help me out friends and HOLD ME ACCOUNTABLE!

Miss Soon to be MRS Queen Bee <3
