New Year, Same Old Me?

5 Jan

Happy New Year! Oh how I love the fresh start of a new year 🙂 I always start out the year intending to be more organized and eat healthier and all of that. This year, however, my resolutions are a little bit different. 2015 was hands down the best year of my life. I married my best friend, had all of those incredible wedding festivities, and had more amazing times with family and friends than I can even count. There aren’t really too many things I feel like I need to work on, although there is always something so here’s what I have come up with (and I apologize if they are a bit lame).


  • Drink more water. This is a big one for me as I really don’t like water all that much and I am really going to have to force myself to drink more although I know it will definitely benefit me.

  • Spend more time improving my cooking skills. Dan does the majority of the cooking in our house and although my crock-pot skills are pretty awesome, I want to learn to cook more dishes as well as different types of dishes.
  • Drink more smoothies. I love my Nutribullet and I love green smoothies even more so I would like to remember to make those for snacks more often so I stop reaching for the bag of potato chips as much 😉

  • Stop and smell the roses. I am often too guilty of speeding my way through life and not stopping to appreciate the things that are right in front of me. I feel that I need to step back and make an effort not to take things for granted as much.

… and moments like these, are priceless!

  • Read more books. I have always been a huge reader and as life as gotten hectic this past year, reading has taken a backseat. I want to devote more time to just sitting down and enjoying some peace, quiet, and a good book. I know that this is one of Dan’s resolutions as well so hopefully we can tackle it together.

Does anyone else have this problem?!

I’m pretty sure that is all that I feel that I really need to work on and I would definitely consider them goals more than resolutions. I hope that 2016 is just as wonderful as 2015, for myself and for you guys as well! Have a happy Tuesday!
