Monday, January 6, 2014


As of late...

  • Picking a word (elevate!) for One Little Word 2014. More about that soon. 
  • Finishing PL 2013 and December's #30lists. 
  • Making a new blog planner to keep myself organized. 
  • Chik-fil-a milkshakes. Two days in a row. 
  • On a related note, trying to take 10,000 steps per day (got a FitBit from my hubby for Christmas!
  • Putting away Christmas decorations (not those glittery mini houses... They're "wintery" not "christmasy"). 
  • Thinking up new topics for the blog. 
  • Drinking hot tea. 
  • Hanging out on the couch snuggling under the electric throw. Baby, it's cold outside!
  • Looking forward to Jamaica in less than 2 weeks. 
  • Oh, and that big change (see day 4) I said I was working up the courage to do? I finally did it. Starting a new job on January 27. Can't wait!!
Out with the old, in with the new. 


I love reading each and every comment! Be sure to keep up with me on Instagram, Pinterest, and Facebook!

    Nice little post about what's going on in life-that's a good idea. Good luck with your walking I know you'll do it! I'm doing planet fitness for me and so far it hasn't been to bad. We can cheer each other on :)

  7. I do the OLW and have for the past 3 years. I find I am more successful with that than a New Years Resolution. I am intrigued with your word. Excited to see how you use it through the next year. Congrats on your new job! Change isn't always easy. Wishing you the best. Enjoy Jamaica! We went last April. We used Lindsay McFarlane for our private tours. He is the best! Anxious to see how you like it there. Happy New year!

    1. I'm excited to see where Elevate can take me this year... this is my first year doing OLW and I have high expectations for it! I'll ask about Lindsay if we do any off-resort tours. We have been to Jamaica before (our honeymoon and anniversary trips) and we love it there. I love the laid back vibe. I need more of that in my life!
