Happy New Year!

Oh haaaay strangers! Did anyone else take a blogging break to soak up the holidays? Y'all, Christmas this year was simply magical and we loved every single second of it. I hope y'all had a great one as well! Seeing it all through Miss A's eyes was just fabulous. I could use some more snow though! An like I say every single year - why does it go by SO dang quickly? Ugh! Anyway, we've been plowing ahead on renovation #3 and the drywall is in! I cannot put into words how awesome and different it was to walk through the door and see it so bright with white drywall. I'll share an update next week hopefully so stay tuned for that one. 



Switching gears to NYE, we actually stayed in! It was probably my first NYE at home since being preggo and I was oddly happy about it. Hubs was off and we had plans but everyone got lazy with the dreary weather and decided to stay in. We had friends stay with us the night before and needless to say we were slightly hungover from that visit so staying in seemed like the best remedy. Also, being with Miss A was super fun and of course we still popped all the bubbly. (she did cheers with her sippy of milk folks but stayed up the entire time!)


This new year brings with it a new motivation for me - my first time attempting a resolution. It sounds silly but I just never set a resolution and this year I'm determined to be a healthier version of myself for not only me but for my family. Hubs and I have decided to start a no fast-food or eating out (minus a date night here and there) plan for at least 30 days (you know, to make sure we can do it..) and I'm also jumping back on the meal-planning wagon because I honestly REALLY miss it. I'd like to keep up my workouts and definitely lose that 10 pounds that has been bothering me lately. So, with that said, can someone keep me accountable? I'm so ready! 2019 will be a great year, I'm sure of it! Cheers to a new home and a healthier me!

Oh, and definitely time to start focusing on these two books I might've just purchased... bring on 2019 y'all!

  2. A night in sounds like the perfect nye to me! We went out to a friends house that was low key but a night in would have been just fine too.
    I think your resolution is great! My husband and I are trying to incorporate more veggies (somehow we fell off of this once having a baby and focused on feeding her good things and just shoveling food in for us haha) and not snacking as much! I have faith that you guys can do it!!

  4. I'm with you on meal planning and losing those stubborn lbs, friend! I swear, mental and physical health are totally at the top of my goal list for this year, and I love seeing people take charge of their lives! I've loved following your holiday and New Year's season on IG! Happy New Year!!!

  5. OMG...girl the fist time I read this I thought I had missed a pregnancy announcement! I totally took a break from blogging and social media and to be honest I'm having a hard time getting back on the train. I love, love, love the idea of a 30 day no eating out plan. We usually do so much better at the beginning of the year and I need to focus on meal planning. Eating out is such a huge hit on the budget too.

  6. I almost texted about a design problem the other night, so excited to see what you do with the new house. We also stayed in and it was glorious!

  7. I am on the healthier train too to lose the 10 pounds I need to get off. I have a goal to do it by my birthday in May and maybe a few extra, lets keep each other accountable! Meal planning, less weeknight drinking and planning exercise. Let's do it!

  9. Happy New Year! Glad you all had such a fantastic time - soak up that Christmas magic with Miss A! It does change when they no longer believe, but not that dramatically, the excitement is still there :) Will be great to follow your health plan - if you are sharing on the blog. I always leave working out before spring summer too late, so hope to start on that again next week (beachbody). Will look forward to following your progress (you might motivate me too)! Jxx
