Life: New Years Resolutions Recap (2019)

It’s that time of year to reflect on the past year and see if we really did accomplish the resolutions we made.

Our 2019 resolutions were:


  1. Incorporate dedicated weekly communication & reflection
    • We did well for the first part of the year, it became more difficult to dedicate time to this as our lives got busier.
  2. Continue on our journey to becoming parents
    • We got pregnant twice! However we lost both pregnancies.  So we are parents, to two beautiful and very special angel babies.
  3. Buy a house
    • We did it, I can’t believe we did it.  This was a far reaching goal but we accomplished it!
  4. Be a better husband by listening more (Jon)
    • Jon and I agree that he has done a great job listening more!
  5. Be a better wife by being more patient (Angie)
    • We agree that I made progress on this but there is still work to be done.  Patience has never been my strong suit.


  1. Reach our goal weights and maintain our healthy lifestyles
    • We did a very good job of reaching our goals!  Maintaining our healthy lifestyle was challenging with all the travelling we did this year but overall I would say we did a really good job of staying on track.
  2. Get routine physicals and check-ups
    • This one we did not do at all, ugh.
  3. Participate in a 5k or take a long hike
    • We did not accomplish this one either, however I walked much more and Jon worked out very consistently.


  1. Hawaii
    • Check!
  2. Yellowstone
    • This one had to be cancelled due to our miscarriage.
  3. Catalina
    • We never got to this one unfortunately.
  4. Oregon
    • Or this one…
  5. Las Vegas
    • We did however travel to Vegas almost once a month, every month!


  1. Read more books (Angie)
    • I didn’t get to this one as much as I would have liked to.
  2. Get more organized (Angie)
    • This one was a win!  I found some new tools that really helped me get organized.
  3. Slow down and live in the moment (Jon)
    • Yes, even though this has been an extremely busy year we were able to slow down and enjoy our time.
  4. Start our YouTube Channel (Both)
    • Not this year unfortunately.
