Resolutions

Show Us Your Life with Kelly's Korner


Wow, is it New Years already?!?! I can't believe we will be ringing in 2010 in a mere two days. TWO days. Wow.

2009 was a major growth year for me. Sometimes you have to walk through the fire to see the beauty that comes out in the end. I am thankful that '09 brought me real love with an amazing man. The future may be unknown, but I am blessed to have someone who wants to travel through the unknown together. So...moving on to 2010. What will it bring? I know a few things I am resolving for the year, and I would like to share them. As Bobby says "be about it, don't just speak about it". Sharing my goals/resolutions will help me to be about it, and hopefully you will want to be about yours as well.


  1. save, save, save ... buying a house & filling it up with furniture is not cheap. time to build back up the savings account.
  2. love deeply ... everyone needs love, even those who seem unlovable. I hope in 2010 I swallow my pride more & am able to love those who need it most.
  3. give big ... it's not about money & it is not about us. I pray in 2010 I will find ways to serve others more.
  4. run a 1/2 marathon ... I stole this goal from my sis Elizabeth, but it's a goal we're running to complete together (pun intended), so I want to include it.
  5. play more ... watching my nephews & niece over Christmas made me think of this. whatever it is.....Wii, taking Gus to the park, going to Six Flags....doesn't matter, I just want to forget I am a 'grown up' all of the time & remember to have more fun and play in 2010!
  6. learn ... after I finished school I stopped being obligated to 'learn' because I wasn't getting a grade. in 2010 I want to soak up more knowledge.

Well, that's it for now. What are your resolutions? Will you be bold and share them so you can be about it as well? I think you should ;)

Cookies, Cake Balls & Christmas Lights

This Saturday was a very fun day.....mom, sisters & I baked loads of goodies to share with family & friends (if you didn't get any it's because Bobby ate most of them!). We had so much fun & enjoyed some yummy treats for ourselves. I did not take pictures of my new favorite treat, Cake Balls, but I did snap some fun pictures!





Then Bobby & I went on a fun date night to eat Chinese at our favorite place & go look at Christmas lights. Thank goodness we went to Lights of Life first, or we would have seen very few lights....Atlanta was such a disappointment this year! We had a great time driving around, and Bobby let me borrow his awesome new gloves, which gave me man-hands....and then he surprised me with one of my Christmas presents...new gloves for me! They are much smaller than his & I love them. He's thoughtful ;)

Happy Birthday Sisterssss....

So it's one day late, but considering I haven't blogged in over a month, I guess it's ok ;)

Yesterday was my little sisters' birthday......24 years old. Crazy how time flies. I wish I had old pictures of me with my sisters, but here are some good ones.....









These two ladies are two remarkable women that I simply could not live without. I love you both so much and I hope you had wonderful birthdays yesterday with all of your boys....(there are a lot of men in your lives ;) ). Not a day goes by that I do not thank the Lord for you both. Who would have thought ten years ago when I tried to kick you out of my car (yes, I know, I was a horrible big sis for a while) that we would be so close. I used to think that I wasted so much time being a bully big sis that I missed out on great time with you. Now I look at it as good stories in the making, and I take the time we have now to make up for that 'lost' time. Watching the two of you with your families is such a blessing. You are both so beautiful, and such wonderful mommas and wives. Your husbands and sons are oh-so-very lucky!! I pray this next year is filled with many, many blessings. May your joys be multiplied even more and may you have your best year yet. I love you so much!!
xoxoxo,
sis
