New Year's Eve ended up being a busy day for us with a quiet night. We partied too early at an afternoon wedding. Then my parent's came by to party more with us. They lasted until 9:30. Sweet J had gone to his gf's house to party. At 10 it was no surprise when hubby said he was heading to bed since he had to work th next the morning. Sweet baby N was already in bed.
That left Sweet M and I to quietly party alone. We had fun searching for ideas for her 10th birthday party. We found a few things on Pinterest and made some plans. We played some games and watched the countdown on TV. And we chatted, she asked what my resolutions were for 2012. She got me, I had no idea. I think every year I make some goals to do better at __________(basically everything.) Well, the same is true for this year. But different. I have some plans to go with each goal so I am better at something by the end of the year.
Last year started out the same way, with a blog. I did a few things but ended up doing more blog hopping than my own posting. Oh did I find some great people out there with great ideas. Even if I borrow their ideas I know I will be getting things done around here, and coming up with some great ideas of my own.
Now for my list of goals. I will update when these are complete and when I have new goals.
1. Learn more about  blogging and designing my blog to look better.
2. Create a cleaning schedule and stick to it, share it with my family to get them involved.
       a. Find the couch buried under clean laundry in Master bedroom.
       b. Laundry Area, make it more efficient
       c. FILE!!!
       d. Hall closet
4. Create!!!
       a. storage and organizing ideas for Sweet M's desk
       b. "love" sign for Master
       c. shelf for Family Room
5. Save
6. Study
7. Plan menus and cook more
8. Date nights (we've had a few since Sweet N's arrival but we bring him along. It's time to let go and let someone watch him.)

These are all do-able right!?!? Some things are more specific so I can cross those off and add to my list.
Happy 2012 and I hope it is what you want it to be.

Getting my bloggy on!

Hi All and welcome to At HOME with Sweet T!!!
I feel like my first post should tell you who I am and what you'll find here...
So who am I? I am Tracy. Wife, and mother to 3 sweet kiddos. My sweet hubby and I were married in April of 2010. Sweet J is my handsome teen son, Sweet M is my beautiful pre-teen daughter and Sweet N is my baby boy. I am blessed to stay home and work from home as an independent consultant with Thirty-One Gifts. Um, I love love love Sweet Tea!
What will I blog about? My plan is to blog about a nice mix of topics: Motherhood, crafty and DIY projects, recipes, house-keeping, and tips for direct selling. That sorta leaves my options wide open. Basically  the things in my life and things that make me happy.
Have you guessed where the name of the blog comes from yet? At HOME=I love that I am home, that is where my heart is. Sweet T= 1. T for Tracy and uh yeah I'm sweet ;)  2. Most likely I will be blogging with my sweet tea or doing something to blog about with sweet tea.
I have followed some great ladies in the blog world who have inspired me to start this blog. I can only hope to be as great as they are. I think having a blog will help make me a better person. Truth=I've gotten to be lazy at all things I love and that's just not right. I'm looking to At HOME with Sweet T to keep me accountable. Please follow me on this journey. Comments are always welcome. You can find me on Twitter.
