Oh yeah. Resolutions.

1. Lose 50 pounds. The key to attaining this goal is to not be particular about how I lose the 50. How much does a right foot and two pinkies weigh?

2. Go to bed earlier than midnight. Or start sleeping in until 10:00 every morning and get fired from my job. Not sure which direction I’ll go on this one just yet.

3. Cut Justin Bieber’s hair. I have no plan of attack at the moment, but I think achieving goal #2 will be a step in the right direction.

4. Have my eyebrows waxed more often. This might not seem like a significant goal to you, but when your hairdresser refers to you as a wooly mammoth, you might consider it.

5. Make my kids do more chores. This goal allows me to negate what would be goals #6-72 for myself. It’s quite brilliant of me, really.

                              Less                                               More

 

Whatever your resolutions are, I hope you have a wonderful new year! Stay safe!

Lose 50 pounds? I'm more likely to lose 50 euros, honestly...

I think I'll just attempt to continue the slow downward weight loss, it's progress and by this time next year, it might even be significant!

Happy New Year to you as well!

Cute post!! Wishing you a Happy New Year! (And if some of those things do happen I know where to come look first!)

Brittny said...

Can I help you cut that kid's hair? It drives me crazy and I didn't even know who he was (still not really sure) until about 6 months ago. The kids here (Florida that is) all have the same hair and it bugs the mess out of me! Just let me know when you see him and I will drop everything to help you out on this one! : )

Morgan said...

You're hilarious! These are the best resolutions I've read!

Rachel said...

ha, this totally made me laugh. i especially loved the kids doing chores pictures :)

Cheryl said...

Such a funny post...I'm with you on losing the weight and cutting JB's hair! And going to bed before midnight...for a blogger that is indeed a challenging one. About two hours before I read your blog, I wrote a similar post on mine...but I looked back at how I did on last year's resolutions...not so good I'm afraid. Maybe this year will be better...Happy New Year!

Oh love the idea of children doing more chores, i'm ALL about child labour in the home!! Happy New Year!! I'm pretty sure you could band together plenty of mothers willing to take scissors to Justin's hair, sign me up!! Love Posie

The Mulberry Girl said...

Oh...I have a goal to lose 50 pounds also. How about the person to lose it first gets to make the other one listen to "Baby, baby, baby..OH!" 50 times in a row?

How's that for motivation?! (Like you even have 50 to lose...whatever, you look great!)

Kassi @ Truly Lovely said...

Loving your list!!! These are definitley doable goals I think! :) Happy New Year to you and yours!!!

Jenn said...

I love this post! My goal is 20#, but we'll see how it works out! :D And really, the kid needs a haircut, and a few other life changes IMO!
Love your blog!

Joanna Taylor said...

Chris, I love it! Especially the waxing eyebrows. But I do it more for "me-time" which tells you something if having hair pulled out of my face sounds relaxing to me. I'd love for you to link up on my 2011 goals post. I think others would get as much of a kick out of these as me.

Alicia@ eco friendly homemaking said...

Your post is so cute! I think there is quite a few of us that would help you cut that boys hair.

Kate @ BigGirl + LittleGirl said...

love love LOVE the cartoon at the top of this post about the scale... just perfect :)
Thank you for that timely day-brightener!

The Korns said...

Just stumbled over here from The Fox Den and have to say... please, if you do NOTHING ELSE THIS YEAR.... Please, I beg you. Shave Bieber's head.

Robin said...

Happy New Year to you! And I'll help you hold the Bieber down!!!

Rissa said...

ROFL! I love it. "Less of this, More of this" - child labour is definitely the way to go ;)

ter@waaoms said...

I laughed out loud so hard at the resolution to cut Beiber's hair. I have been shouting "GET A HAIRCUT" every time I see him on tv. Looks like he either finally heard me or you hunted him down and cut his hair. :) I saw him on Ellen the other day sporting a new 'do and he was giving her some locks of his hair to donate to charity! (ewwww!)
