Happy new year!!

All I have to say is WOW for 2011 and that I am glad its over. This year has been full of many up and downs. To start off the year.... well in March that is my 3rd greatest blessing was born. Paizlee Clair, March 24. We purchased a camp trailer so we could continue camping with the baby. The summer was wonderful, filled with camping, fishing and spending time with family. In June Devon and I celebrated 3 years of marriage. The end of September rolls around and I find out that I am pregnant again. Needless to say I was completely shocked and totally not ready mentally for the emotional roller coaster that now comes with being pregnant after a loss. Yay for me that i get to have this stress all the time. Devon got into a wreck caused by a 16 year old driving on a suspended licence. Then we purchased and remolded our home, finally have a place to call our own! But over all it was a good year.

Now for 2012 resolutions. I didn't set any last year because I didn't care but this year is different. My first goal, setting my financial goals, meaning setting a plan to get out of debt. I know a lot of people say this but it is possible and I am going to do it. I know it wont happen in a year but my hope and goal to be out of debt including paying off my house, the car, devons student loans, credit cards and have an emergency fund is 7 years. Long time I know but that happens when you get into debt.

The second goal, after baby gets here in May, going on a diet.

Third, Devon and I are not going to eat out for lunch once this year during the work week.

Fourth, Doing all the laundry. meaning washing folding and putting away.

I just took a family finance class at Utah State and we had to read this book called "Automatic Millionaire" I think it's a great read for someone preparing for a financial future. Maybe check it out. The title is not so great but the info is pretty good.
