resolutions for the new year

normally, i’m not one for making resolutions.  the whole “new year, new me” thing just doesn’t seem realistic to me.  but this year, i’ve made some resolutions that i think are pretty reasonable and doable. so, it’s not so much “new me”, but it’s an improved version of me.  here’s my list:

1. only buy clothes i absolutely LOVE.  seems like a no-brainer, but going through my closet has made me realize how many clothes i’ve only worn once or twice because a.) they were  impulse buys, b.) the price was too good to give up or c.) i needed an item to match something else and this was all i found.  tell me i’m not the only one who does this!

2. learn how to cook…at least a little bit.  i know how to scramble an egg, make a grilled cheese, boil pasta…and that’s about it.

3. be a healthier baker.  too many of these recipes call for whole sticks of butter, cups of sugar and bags of semi-sweet chocolate.  there’s got to be a better way to make things taste good!  and i’ll find it.

4. the last one…i think i’ll keep to myself for now.  if/when i start making progress with this one, i’ll be more than happy to share, i promise!

do you have any new year’s resolutions? let me know.  i’d love to hear what personal goals you have lined up for yourself.
