For 2015 – I have big plans.

Happy New Year!


2015 HAS to be better than 2014. It just has to be. But you know who’s fault it is that 2014 was as hard/sucky/shitty/stressful as it was? Well, I’m not going to take all of the blame…but I certainly hold a high percentage of the blame. But you know what? 2015 is NOT going to be like that.

So, here’s what I have in store for 2015:

* I am going to work harder. 

At everything. At my job. Keeping my house full of love and laughter. At my marriage. With not getting so easily frustrated with myself, with Husband, with kids. Everything…I’m putting my full attention towards myself and how I react to others.

* I am going to laugh more.

I love to laugh. Love it. My kids are hilarious. I am going to let go of inhibitions that used to keep me from trying new things and just laugh at myself along the way.

* I am going to try at least one new thing.

I don’t know what it is yet: could be an art class (I am only good at {kind of} drawing stick figures), a new food, a dance class (haven’t done one of these in YEARS). Who knows…but I’m going to try it.

* I am going to not pay attention to the scale.

Lots make the “I’m going to lose 10 lbs in 30 seconds” diet, or start going to the gym. I don’t have time for that. My clothes fit. I am the same size I was before preggo (albeit not the size that I want to be), but I don’t care. I am going to do everything that makes me feel good…from the glass of wine to chasing the kids around the house, and not focus so much on what the scale says.

That being said:

* I am going to make more from scratch..

I love to cook/bake. I don’t do it as much anymore because Husband does 99% of the meal prep…but I am going to contribute. If it is something that can be made instead of bought, I am going to do it. From mayonnaise, to BBQ sauce, to salad dressing…I want to make it.

And lastly (for now):

* I am going to be more invested in myself, my family, and my friends.

I want to do more. Be more. Get outside more. Have more dance parties (daily). Tell you all I love you more. Hug more.

I mean, seriously. Look at my beautiful babies.

2015 is going to be a good year and I’m going to do my damnedest to make sure of it. Is it going to be easy? Probably not. Will I slip on some/all/parts of these…probably. But who the hell cares…it’s not like you get a plaque at the end of the year that says “yay, you did it!” (although that would be pretty cool).

What do you want for 2015?
