new year’s resolutions

a lot of people think of new year’s eve as an overrated, over celebrated “holiday”.  I, on the other hand, absolutely LOVE NYE because it’s the night I met Jordan.  Yes, we met at a bar on NYE 9 years ago so we always try to do something special each year.  I will share some snaps of out NYE tomorrow but in the meantime I want to share my resolutions for 2014 (partly because making them public makes me feel a little more accountable).



1. [shop my closet.]  I have designated 2014 as the year to save.  Although I have always been a pretty consistent saver, I know I could be better.  Jewelry & clothing have always been my weak spot but this year it is going to change.  Instead of accumulating more stuff, 2014 is about enjoying what I have.


2. [drink more water.]  This is going to be a must in 2014.  My newest rule is going to be that during the week I only drink water (and an occasional glass of wine).  Weekends will be designated for anything else.


3. [read.]  I have started doing more of this recently (once we got rid of the TV in our bedroom) but I want to continue pushing myself to read.  My goal is to read 1 book a month in 2014.  Anyone have any good recommendations?


4. [less sugar.]  I have the biggest sweet tooth and anything gummy is always in my top 3 of things I crave.  No sweets during the week.


5. [redesign.]  It has been about 2 years since I started this blog and I feel like since SO much has happened in 2013, I kind of lost sight of my original vision and passion for make statements.  This year I am going to redesign and make things a little more user friendly.  Any suggestions on what you would like to see, please let me know.  I’d love to hear your feedback!


6. [volunteer].  Since I moved home 3 years ago I have been meaning to dedicate some of my time to a charity or organization where I felt I was making a difference.  More recently I really figured out where my passion lies so starting January 4th, I will be volunteering at a local non kill shelter, Save the Animals Foundation.  

Any big new year’s resolutions that you are planning on for 2014?  Share them with me!
