Tuesday Topics

The Austin Family Diary

I am pretty excited to be taking part in Tuesday Topics, I saw this prompt floating around and decided to jump on in. Every Tuesday I will blog about these prompts.

Ten New Year Resolutions:

  1. Complete my 31 by 31 Challenge
  2. Complete my Active Mama Series
  3. Accomplish No Spend January (more about this later on the blog)
  4. Do not eat in our living room, bad habit and I don't want to ruin my new couch.
  5. Read a book in January. In 2011 I read over 100 books, in 2012 I read 47. Not good, I love reading and need to get back to it.
  6. Spend less time on my iPad. I have a serious addiction, I might need to set specific times...
  7. Set a budget for Violet's birthday party and stick to it!
  8. Start saving money.
  9. Meal plan, happy to report all of our meals are planned through next Thursday.
  10. Buy a second car.


  1. hey, these are great! that wasn't that hard, was it.

  2. Great resolutions! It's so hard to read with a newborn. It does get easier, though. Some day, she'll be sufficient enough to not need all of your attention when she's awake and she'll eventually be able to clean up after her self (those two things take up A LOT of time!)

  3. A good resolution! Newborn is too hard to read. Still does not get easier. She eventually some day, when she awake the interest of all the necessary and sufficient to herself, cleaning can be.

  4. Yay! Glad you're doing Tuesday Topics too. I want to get back into reading too...up until July of this year I was reading on my Kindle like a mad woman. Then I got more into blogging and...I don't need to say more. Good luck with your goals, you'll do awesome!

  5. I love the do not eat on the couch one! I am getting a new couch here soon so that is a perfect one for me! Thanks for linking up! Can't wait to read more!
