New Year’s Resolutions – Make Them?

So tomorrow starts a new year. To be completely honest, I am OVERJOYED to start 2010! For our family 2009 was the pits! Yes, we have a lot to be thankful for, but 2009 was exhausting physically, mentally, and financially. As a lot of the country experienced, my husband suffered a job change, 2 knee surgeries and we now own 2 houses thanks to the lovely economy!
There are some bright spots in our year – the highlight being that after almost 3 years of waiting we finally have an infant daughter in our family that will be bringing home from Asia in 2010! Yes, I will have a short daughter – but that’s fine! We are an equal opportunity family. She will be joining the crazy mix of 4 big brothers. I did my job of repopulating the world with 4 tall boys that will someday turn into 4 tall men! You tall women can thank me later!
So, looking back on 2009, I set a few goals a.k.a New Year’s resolutions. They mostly involve finding more time for the important things in my life. I want to be able to work smarter and not harder in order to spend more time with my precious children. Of course, I would also like to lose a few (or more than a few) pounds (dang it) and feel healthier this next year.

So, I thought I’d see how you do with setting goals.

Win $40 Gift Card for Women’s Custom Clothing

On Christmas Day we are giving away a $40 gift card courtesy of They sell affordable women’s custom made clothing in pants, coats, dresses, skirts, shirts and much more. Their size range is great from size 0-26.

I recently was given the opportunity to get a free item on their website for see how their ordering process works. I chose this coat:

Here is my honest review. I thought the coat fit perfectly. The measuring process was easy and in the comment section I was even able to tell them the exact length I wanted. After getting this coat, I probably would have chosen a different style as the collar was a bit large and doesn’t lay down quite flat. I will fix this by adding a snap. I like that it is lined inside. The wool is not as heavy as I would have like as I live in Colorado and it’s pretty cold here. I also would have liked to have some pockets. I thought the sewing and seaming are high quality. Overall I am pleased and will use this as a dress coat for church and other dressy occasions (when it’s not below zero outside). I ordered the custom made coat and it came to my house by UPS and arrived exactly 7 days after I ordered it. I was impressed at the speed.
