Bumble Contest! What’s your New Year’s Resolution?

Thursday, December 27th, 2007 at 9:59 am

It’s that time of the year again. The new year is right around the corner. New Year’s Eve has always been a time for looking back to the past, and more importantly, forward to the coming year. It’s a time to reflect on the changes we want (or need) to make and resolve to follow through on those changes.

Here are the top 10 New Year’s Resolutions along with some tips for support:

1- Be In Touch More W/ Family & Friends- Keep in contact with your loved ones by using the Ojo personal video phone.

2- Fit in Fitness- Check with your local mall to join a mall walking group.

3- Tame the Bulge- Contact your local gym to find a personal trainer to help you whittle your waist.

4- Quit Smoking- Contact the North American Quit Line Consortium for personal support in your area.

5- Enjoy Life More- Try taking up a new hobby like cooking. Contact gourmet stores like Sur La Table or your local community college for a cooking class.

6- Quit drinking- A growing number of restaurants are recognizing the demand for fine non-alcoholic beverages. Take a second look at the menu next time.

7- Take Control of Your Finances- Look over your credit card report at least once a year. You get one free report a year.

8- Learn a New Language- Check out Rosetta Stone audio cd’s. Perfect even if you want to pick up a few quick phrases for your next vacation.

9- Help Others- Contact a local organization to see how you can get involved. We like Big Brothers Big Sisters of America.

10- Get Organized- Check out Organize Magazine for tips on how to stay organized year round.

Now that you’ve heard the list of the Top 10 Resolutions. We want to hear your resolution!

It’s a Bumble Contest!

    My new year’s resolution is to try to cook more for my family and not so much take out. I think they’d appreciate that just as long as I don’t make my meatloaf. My kids aren’t big fans of the meatloaf! Happy New Year, Bumble! Thanks for making the best bags.

  2. Elizabeth Garcia says:

    My New Year’s resolution is to get back into shape and my size 6 pants! After giving birth to my 3rd son I haven’t had much time in between pregnancy’s to get back into shape. Now that Michael being my (hopefully) last child my goal and resolution is to get back into shape which is not only better for my health but to be able to keep up with my 3 boys!

  3. May Torres says:

    Wow! It is already that time to rejoice for the new coming year. Every year I would make a list of goals I would love to accomplish; I never seize to fail in accomplishing a majority of them. This coming 2008 I would like to make just one new years resolution, one that I can focus on the whole year. My son is growing up so fast, my new years resolution is to embrace his youth as much as possible by finding the youth in me. I cant wait to see how my son will grow up as he enters middle school in 2009.

  4. Rachel Wells-Manley says:

    I love contests… My New Year’s resolution is to not watch as much tv especially reality tv shows . I’m a sucker for reality shows :) My dh is too. I wish everyone a wonderful new year!

  5. Nicole says:

    My resolution is to spend more time outdoors. This is not an attempt to lose weight, or even to get more exercise, although both of those may happen if I’m successful. I just know that I tend to feel better if I spend some time outside every day, even if it’s cold and dark.

  6. Alice S says:

    I want to keep up my running which I just recently got back into after baby #2.

  7. Megan K says:

    My resolution is to loose the last little baby weight that I have and to get back into my size 6 jeans. I even purchased a new pair for a little motivation!!

  8. Shelley Thomas says:

    My goal for the new year is to lose the rest of my baby weight and to start entertaining more at our home! I hope everyone has a wonderful new year.

  9. Natalie M says:

    My New Year’s resolution is to get up with the hubby, baby and dogs and walk every morning before we take her to daycare. Right now it’s a mad dash out of bed and in the car! We’d love to have the morning to hang out as a family before the work rush.

  10. Erica Mansley says:

    I would love to be able to spend more time with my little ones… and be a better wife with my husband. I think I make him do too much sometimes :)

  11. Alyssa says:

    My New Year’s resolution is to continue to develop my faith life and to set a better example for my family and friends.

  12. Sandra Contreras says:

    My New Year’s resolution is to enjoy my family and friends more and not take things for granted. I had a heck of a 2007 and would like to focus on all the positive life has to offer like my family and friends especially my 8 month old daughter. Happy New Year Bumble. You guys are great!!!!

  13. Laurel says:

    My New Year’s resolution is to run a half marathon this year – I’ve never got that far (10K is the most) and to rid our home of high fructose corn syrup! Hope my kids don’t hate me after this year.

  14. Kristen says:

    My New Year’s resolution is to start a family! My husband and I have decided that we want to start a family and we are ready to being fully committed to making that happen! I’m so excited!

  15. Morissa says:

    As we ring in 2008, my resolution is to enjoy these last two months of having just my 2 year old son and cherishing each special moment with just him. We are being blessed with twin girls in March & life is just going to get that much more hectic & busy. I want to enjoy every bit of every day, the small things like cuddling, reading a book & just talking to one another.
    I would also like to rest more often or at least take advantage of when I can instead of constantly going! Thanks Bumble! Happy New Year!

  16. Aimee Brashears says:

    My resolution is to make and take time to be good to myself. I find it too easy to find fault with myself or to neglect taking the time to nurture my own needs. I believe that in caring for my own heart and soul and by being kinder to myself, I will also be a better wife, mom and friend. As a Mommy to two girls (and a third on the way) it is so important to me to do everything possible to help my girls grow and develop great self esteem and a positive and healthy image of themselves. No doubt that will begin with Mom!

    Thanks for the great giveaway!

  17. Alexa says:

    My New Year’s resolution is to try and stay on top of housework more–and to get back in shape after baby #2 arrives in April.

  18. Ashley says:

    My resolution is to continue to keep up with my house despite adding another new addition in February! :)

    These bags are beautiful and look so useful!

  19. Rachel says:

    My resolution is to make spending more time with my daughter a priority. I get so busy with all my little to-do things, that somedays I realize I’ve been with her all day, but we haven’t even spent the time to sit down and read a story together! :(

  20. Sara says:

    My new year’s resolution is to continue making my daughter my top priority and to cook at least 5 nights a week at home for my family…and get working on my scrapbooks.

  21. Tracy D. says:

    Everyone always asks this time of year…What’s your new year’s resolution??

    Well, I actually gave it some thought this year before blurting out the typical “lose 15 pounds” response.

    This is what I came up with. Cheers, and happy new year!!
    To be more patient,

    To be more kind

    To take a few minutes

    Each day to unwind

    To practice forgiveness

    Hard, may it be

    ‘Cause when you forgive

    Your heart is more free

    To love myself fully

    Imperfections and all

    Start embracing the short;

    And stop wishing for tall

    To really accept

    That this life I am living

    Is less about getting

    And all about giving

    To give what I can,

    And be grateful each day

    That my life, it is happy-

    More yellow than gray

    To preach what I practice

    To my little girl

    And help her see good

    In a sometimes tough world

    To hug, to kiss

    To laugh, every day

    To go to the playground,

    And actually play!

    To remember that life

    Is no dress rehearsal;

    Live for the now-

    It is quite universal

    To count all the blessings

    That make my life great

    And not take for granted

    The food on my plate

    To love my whole body

    And fuel it up smart

    By choosing organic

    To fill up my cart

    To dream and explore,

    To write and create

    To act upon thoughts,

    And not ponder or wait

    To jump in the puddles

    Along with my daughter

    And learn not to fret

    Over brown, muddy water

    To let her paint pictures

    In spite of the mess

    And realize it’s fine

    If it lands on her dress

    To turn off the cell phone

    Unplug the TV

    And, one day a week,

    Let her have all of me.

    To sing in the rain

    To let down my hair

    To jump without looking

    And learn not to care

    To dance with my husband

    Right there in our den

    And when our song ends-

    Play it over again.

    To make time to tell him

    How head over heels

    In love I still am,

    And how great that it feels!

    To kiss him each night

    And give him a squeeze

    Because life, we all know,

    Just has no guarantees

    To call my grandparents

    More often than not

    (Life’s about the phone call;

    Not just the thought.)

    To pick up a pen

    And write a nice letter

    To a soldier who’s fighting

    To make this world better

    To remember how far

    A smile will go

    Could change someone’s day

    And you’d just never know

    To stop saying “tomorrow”

    Start saying TODAY.

    Life would be much more

    Fulfilling this way.

    So this is my mantra

    For two thousand eight

    And if I can live it,

    Life’s sure to be great

    But I might need reminding

    Not much, just a smidge-

    So I’ll print it out now

    And hang it on the fridge

    And if you are inspired

    By reading it too

    Then please do the same-

    Happy New Year to you!!

  22. Jenn Westerlund says:

    My resolution for 2008 is to take better care of myself so I can be a better mother. I really want to be the best mom I can for my kids and usually I am so worn out from being exhausted, not exercising, and not eating the best, I feel like I am not giving them everything I can. They deserve it, so I want to be my best so I have the energy for all the extra hugs and kisses and fun:)

  23. Kimberly B says:

    My resolution is to get and KEEP my house in order in anticipation of our expected baby girl on 3/30. We will FINALLY be parents via adoption and want everything to be just perfect when she makes her grand arrival. We’ve been waiting for her for a long time, so I need to get the house in order so she doesn’t arrive to a mess!

  24. Jill says:

    My resolution is to lose the baby fat from my 3rd son too– the problem is he is 4 already. Actually I think that most of the fat was from my 2nd son and he is almost 10. This has to be done by May 10th which is when I will be in my brothers wedding! Yikes!

  25. Erin M. says:

    Me resolution is to be patient and worry free during my pregancy with twin boys due in June. It is very hard not to worry, but I am certainly trying and know it will be best for myself and the boys.

    Happy New Year to all of you! May 2008 bring you everything you have ever hoped for!

  26. Karin says:

    I vow to get fit and eat healthy in preparation for my baby to come. Thanks Bumble for asking! Happy New Year!

  27. Michelle Levy says:

    My NY resolution is to spend more time with my family and to try to talk with my mother in law more.

  28. Janice says:

    My resolution is to go green. Everything that I am able to teach my son and soon to be born daughter with help to infulence the next generation. I already started by shutting off the water this morning while I brushed our teeth.

  29. Marie Reynolds says:

    My 2008 resolution is the following:
    1) Prepare dinner earlier for my family and not eat so late
    2) Let my hubby plan more weekend activities and that includes fishing trips w/ me and the boys
    3) Wake up earlier
    4) Exercise and really try to stick with it. I think I’ll try Yoga this year.
    5) Get involved with my oldest child’s school activities
    6) Try not to bring work home
    This is my resolutions. Thanks for listening.
