Not so fast 2019. I can appreciate the fact that you’re here, but I must say I wasn’t ready. I was having a jolly old time in 2018 and then you snuck up on me.

Last week is a bit of a blur. Usually New Years is one of my favorite holidays. I love making new goals and starting anew. But these last two years I’ve been a little off. Last year because I was in a first trimester haze. And this year because we just made a big move, with two kids and a baby. A move we were extremely blessed to make. And I’m SO thankful for.

The good news is I know from experience that it’s ok if you aren’t ready to jump in with a new gym membership and resolutions to check in every day. Or if you don’t hit the ground running on 1/1/19. Last year it took me a few months to feel up to making goals but once I finally did I was ready to roll.

I don’t think it’ll take months for me to feel ready to get going. I actually am hoping I’ll be ready by my birthday next week, or the end of the month at the latest.

I stopped making resolutions years ago, but I always make new year goals. Right now my goal is to set my goals next month.

Until then I’m trying to unpack the last dozen or so boxes and get set up in this new home of ours. I’m still basking in gratitude and relishing in some lingering holiday cheer. Still glowing in the wonderful aura of 2018.

Once again I’m wondering how this next year can possibly top the last. But who knows, I’ve said that before too.


Happy New Year!

Did it take long enough for me to say that or what? Sheesh!

December was all about the holidays and my family, celebrating my anniversary and Christmas with our little ones. Oh, and I skipped Christmas cards and sent New Years cards. It’s totally going to be my new thing. Who wants one more thing to add to all that Christmas to-do-list craziness?


Lil’ J and I made some goals for this year. She wants to “whine less”, and “get lots of money.”–A girl after my own heart.

I want to give myself enough room to breathe this year and really enjoy my family. Spend less, save more. Especially since Lil’ J starts Kindergarten this fall. I’m still toying with the idea of homeschooling, but we’ll see. I haven’t done a lot of research about it, and I really want to see if my work load will allow for it.

So what else is new? Oh… My husband wants a vasectomy and I’m freaking out. I mean I don’t think I want any more kids but I may change my mind in 5 or so years, I mean heck, I’m only 28. Anyway, more on that later.

Thursday I’m flying to Hawaii with my sister and taking her back to BYU-Hawaii. I’m very excited but also a little sad that I’m not bringing my daughter with me. She’s been begging me to take her to Hawaii since falling in love with Lilo and Stitch. I told her she can come next time.


I don’t feel THAT bad because I’m getting her all pumped up about Disney World and saying “someday” maybe we will go there, maybe when she’s older. She has no idea that we’re all going next month. We are going to tell her the day of right before we go to the airport. I can’t wait to see her reaction, and yes, I’ll get it on camera.

On Instagram and FB I’ve got a new 365 project going. We’ll see if it lasts. It’s a #DailyCurly photo. Basically keeping me accountable for attempting to style our hair on a more regular basis, and maybe get me to branch out with new styles and share more hair tutorials down the line (for all three of us).

Then of course I just want to continue to make fun memories with my family, and make cute keepsakes of those memories.There are a few new documenting-ish things I want to try and I’ll be sure to share them with you once I’ve given them a chance.

I also want to continue to research more about our family’s history and find fun ways to share that with our kids. It sounds like a lot, but it’s all about living life and making the best of it, so it should be fun.

Feeling so blessed, and extremely thankful. Thanks for sticking around and hanging out with me here, this year is going to be amazing!

What are you goals and plans for 2015?
