Congrats on the feature. How cool is that! For 2009 I want to accomplish a few things. 1. I want to finish my bachelors degree, I am just a few classes away from finishing. With 5 kids that has been a challenge but I am almost there. I would also like to get my clothing designs out to boutiques in the area an get my name out there. I have already started with one botique and been offered a job desinging for her so I am really excited as this can be a HUGE opportunity for me now that I am a single mom of 5. Those are my accomplishments that I am aiming to complete besides being a great mom and support for my twins and triplets.

In 2009 I hope to accomplish the art of motherhood. My little one is now almost six months old, and as much as I think I've already learned, I know she is going to teach me so much more. I want to take in every moment I have with her and cherish the days.

Jessica said...

Thanks for the great giveaway! I would like to accomplish the daily tasks of being a loving wife, purposeful mommy and faithful follower of the Lord.

In 2009 I hope to get in shape and eat healthier. I hope to be the best mom and wife that I can be. I hope to grow in my relationship with the Lord, and I hope to live life to the fullest while stopping and enjoying the small things!

I can't get the Baby Blog Addict site to load for some reason, so I have no idea what you are giving away. :)

But...that said, my goal for this year is for there to be less of me in the physical sense and more of God in my life. :) Being consistent in my quiet time and exercise time.

Dimple Queen said...

Hope to accomplish in 2009???? Well, there are a couple things....1. to be supportive of Hubby as we work to get ourselves DEBT FREE!!!
2. start my weight loss, I need to loose 30 pounds to be in a healthy weight zone

Those are a few!

In 2009 I would like to lose this baby weight! Not just to look skinny, but to feel better and have more energy to scurry after my 6 month old sweet Avery.

Michelle said...

I hope 2009 brings a job for my husband (he lost his in Nov 2008) and me. I also hope we can get financially back on track after these past few months. I also hope to start a class in the Fall in hopes to become an RN.

Amy B. said...

Congratulations! You rock! My goals for 2009: 1) Lose 30 more pounds, 2) Be a more disciplined mom & wife, 3) Make serving and volunteering a priority, 4) Get started on a sibling for Charlie!

Jeanette said...

In 2009, I hope and pray we will finally be able to travel to China to be joined with our baby girl!

Amy Pierce said...

In 2009 I plan to spend more time in prayer and Bible study, get caught up on our family scrapbooks, solve the financial crisis, and bring about world peace. Just kidding about those last two, but writing them makes the other two seem oh so much more doable!

The Massey's said...

What to accomplish in 2009? So many things! I first would like to get accepted into Dietetic Internship to being my future career at a Registered Dietitian. To become an RD, you must have your bachelor's and then do 1,000 practice hours and then take the National Registry. First step is getting into an internship. SO COMPETITIVE! About 150 applicants and only 8 are selected. Your application PACKET is about 20 pages plus a personal letter and about 5 letters of recomendation. Almost done with my packet, and deadlines are Feb 17th. That is my number one accomplishment I hope to achieve in 2009 :)

Nice Work! In 2009 I’m working to better myself through faith, health, and learning. I need to take care of myself so that I can support my husband on his third USMC deployment in three years, give love and patience to all of my 127 students that I serve each day, focus on my academic Masters Degree classes … and have fun being 25!

L L said...

I hope to accomplish becoming a mama through the miracle of adoption. I have waited a long time to hold my child in my arms, sometimes I still cannot believe it may actually come true.

Heather said...

I'd like to be more disciplined with my time in the Word. Also, more faithful about exercising AT LEAST three times a week.

Sabrina said...

Just came across your blog - love it! In 2009, I hope to accomplish one simple thing - to become more domestic. You know, cutting coupons, cooking a home cooked meal every night - full of all the proper nutrients, using healthier products, etc. Ive even strated cloth diapering - yikes! So on paper, it may not look like much of an accomplishment, but if I can pull this off, my family with thank me, and thats worth it.

For 2009, I would like to accomplish a few things. We are expecting baby #3 so I would LOVE to get things more orgnaized before she arrives. I feel like I can be a better wife & mother that way! I am also a student, finishing my nursing degree & I would love to graduate with honors. That means lots of study time & with 3 children I'm not so sure I can! Lastly, I want to be the wife & mother that God designed me to be!

Teresa said...

I love your designs! In 2009 I have many things that I want to accomplish. Like many others have mentioned, I want to develop an even deeper relationship with my Savior. I want to tell my husband something that I love about him every day! I want to be a gentle & encouraging mother to my four children and our recent addition to the family a 16 yr old~which creates another desire~ learn how to raise a teen in a loving and consistent manner with Christ at the center! Oh and I would love to start a blog to begin to journal are joyful and crazy life!! Thanks for the chance to possibly start it in style!!

newmanfamily said...

I don't know that it is accomplishment as much as what I strive to do each day - to be the mother to my two children that God has called me to be and teach them about Jesus so they will live their lives to honor him. If you want an actual accomplishment, to get my 8 1/2 month old to sleep through the night.

Congrats on the feature girl that is so exciting!!! In 2009 I hope to become the faithful wife I always prayed that I would be. To love my (almost) husband the way that God created me to love and support him. Also I hope to gain my teaching certification so that I can begin a career in the field I think I was always meant to be in.

Happy 2009!

Lee Lee said...

Looks like 2009 is starting off pretty great for you! Here's to hoping that my year is filled with the same good fortune. I am really hoping to master the art of mulit tasking. That would be quite an accomplishment for me! I need to learn to be better at working, and being a mom, and a friend, and a wife. So many hats to wear... not enough time. Keep your fingers crossed.

Betsy said...

Maintaining my weight through diet and exercise. I am a yo-yo.

Love your work!

The Basgier Family said...

I'm hoping to get an ebay store up and running AND start a blog about saving money and time as a busy, working mom. This would really help with the second goal!
