Resolutions by Pioneer Woman, and Me!

Confessions of a Pioneer Woman, written by Ree Drummond, is probably the first  blog that I ever read and it remains my very favorite to this day.  My oldest daughter and I met Ree when she was in Boston at a book signing last year and I can honestly say that  she is as nice in person as she is on-line, in print and on tv. If I need a little break in the action  I just pop over to see what’s going on out at the ranch. There’s always something that makes me smile.

Yesterday Ree wrote about her resolutions for 2013. She used the letters of the word resolution and came up with not one, but two lists. I barely made it through one, but here it is, as it appeared in the Pioneer Woman’s comments:

Rest more, I’m on the run (if not actually running) a LOT!

Eat healthier snacks (yesterday my 18 year old son said “stop making cookies mom!”)

Sleep soundly

Own every decision

Live in the present

Use my camera everywhere

Take my kids to the beach once a week (even in winter)

Increase my blogging skills

Owe no one

Next fall, plant some hellebores, I keep wanting to do that!

That’s it! I’m not a huge “resolutions” person, but maybe I’ll accomplish some of this, especially if I share it here on my blog.

Okay, your turn, go ahead and give it a try! What are your resolutions for 2013?




  1. Jen says:

    I just love you, and your resolutions!


    1. Aww… thanks Jen! I love you too! what are your resolutions? I loved Pat’s post last night, and I totally didn’t get how anyone could have yelled at him yesterday?


  2. Beth M says:

    Mmm, taking the kid to the beach every week – I could definitely do that too. That’s a great one.


    1. I would be there every day if I could Beth 🙂


    2. Beth, for some reason I can’t see your blog, it starts to come up and then the screen goes blank right away. Is it just me? I’ve been wanting to check it out for a long time?


  3. I am so jealous! The Pioneer Woman is also my favorite blog though I have only been following for about a year and a half. I spent days and days reading her archives when I found her! And of course she’s a fellow Okie girl. 🙂
