Top 1s of 2011

Happy New Year
from The Montemayor's!

This is midnight.
Mark Dean is pretty much asleep.
And I'm looking pretty rough.

We had dinner at BJ's Brewhouse.
Where they have the best pizza in the world...almost.
Then spent a quiet evening with Brittany, my SIL, drinking fake wine.
While Mark Dean and my brother slept.

I truly hope you brought your New Year in in a much more exciting way! :D

Time to get to the point of this post:
I saw this "resolution-style" list over at Krystal's Kitsch.
I know...I already did a resolution post but...
I loved this because I have a love for lists. it is.
And if you love it as much as I do.
And do a list of your own, come and link back cause I'd love to check out yours, too.

One thing I will learn: My digital SLR.
One place I will go: Somewhere, anywhere NEW! Mark Dean is going to Vegas (again, without me, most likely) so I want a mini-vacation of my own once I get finals out of the way (since this is the reason I can’t go to Vegas in the first place!) Anyone wanna join me on this destination-less adventure???
One physical habit I will break: Spending money on things I don’t need.
One physical habit I will cultivate: Finish things I start. I’m good at thinking of things to do...and starting them. But I never make it to the end because I find something else to start.
One mental habit I will break: Procrastination. I am used to putting so many things off...cleaing, studying, things that aren’t fun, etc.
One relationship I’ll repair: 2010 seemed to be full of relationship repair so, I’m not sure who else I could make amends with. Of course, I would love to reconnect with all of my ol’ middle school and high school buddies. :D
One work habit I will change: Start on homework the day it’s ASSIGNED...not the day it’s DUE.
One thing I’ll throw out: Throw out? I’m a hoarder at heart so, this is TBD. But I will throw things out. Promise.
A second thing I’ll throw out: Two the same year! We shall see...
One thing I’ll eat more often: Home cooked meals.
One thing I’ll eat less: Fast food.
One thing I’ll drink more: Water, juice & caffeine free drinks.
One thing I’ll drink less: Dr. Pepper.
One resentment I’ll get over: I’ve come to terms with all my resentments. Although, I seriously wish these things I had to get over never existed at all.
One person I’ll treat more respectfully: Mark Dean. He’s my husband. He’s annoying. Husbands are annoying. Now, that I’ve come to terms with that, I’ll try to be more understanding and nicer. :D
One thing I’ll spend less money on: Anything other than food.
One other change I’ll make in my finances: Pay more on my debt than I do shopping for things I don’t need. So I can be debt free before the end on 2011.
One thing I’ll spend less time doing: Sleeping. And sitting around on the computer. I want to be productive with the time I spend on the computer (is that possible?).
And a thing I’ll spend more time doing: Studying. I’m determined to dedicate myself and get the best grades I can until I’m completely done with school.

  2. I know!!!

    NO! I didn't order the time dessert came, I was waaay too full! Next time, I'm trying it...for sure! :D

  3. so fun! I'd love to kick my procrastination habit too! If you start missing soda -- drink fizzy juice or lemon/lime carbonated waters -- they usually fix the bubble craving that you get when nixing soda =)

    ummm and husbands are SO annoying ;)
