2014 New Years Resolutions

Just in case you couldn't come up with any resolutions...

I meant to post these yesterday. You know, on New Years Day, but I was busy working on Resolution # 3. Here they are, in no real order:

#1 Stress less. I am not quite sure how to do this, but it's definitely something that needs to be done. I need to learn when to let go,  when to let things roll off my back, and most of all: realize that it's probably not worth the stress.

#2. Look incredible in my wedding dress, and stay that way.  I want to look and feel incredible in my wedding dress (what girl doesn't?!) and keep that awesome feeling long after the wedding. So this means eating healthier (no more cheese fries for dinner) and actually working out. The goal is to drink as much water as possible, load up on protein and veggies, and go to yoga more.

#3. Unplug with Tyler. Yup, less computer, iPhone, iPad, and more genuine time with T. Who knows, maybe we will start doing date nights.

#4. Manage my time better. This was on the list last year and it needs to be on the list again this year.

#5. Have the wedding of my dreams. Yea, I know, cheesy right? It's only once in your life that you get married in Ireland after all. So far, I've got this resolution in the bag.

#6. Read more. I LOVE reading, in fact, I think I've forgotten just how much I love reading. I feel like I just never have time anymore, but in reality I don't make time.

#7. Wear my Invisalign religiously. When I first got it, I was every Orthodontist's dream patient. Then like all things, that kind of fizzled out. I still wear them every morning and all night, but there's a good chunk in the middle of the day where I just...don't.

The perfect NYE

It's here, the last day of the year. Here are all the makings for a perfect New Years Eve.

 #1 Put on a sparkly party dress
#2 Find some sparklers and champagne 
#3 Drink champagne and dance the night away
#4 Crash out with your loved one
#5 Steal a steamy kiss from aforementioned loved one.

Or do what I'm doing; get in your pajamas, make yourself some mimosas, order in food, watch When Harry Met Sally, and kiss your handsome fiancĂ© when the clock strikes 12. 

Happy New Year!

2013 Resolutions Recap

I absolutely love Auld Lang Syne and while the video itself is mildly annoying, I love the added in lines in this version.

As 2013 comes to an end, I thought I'd take a look at how I did on this past years resolutions.

#1 Blog More. Well, I did good at the beginning of the year, then as usual fizzled off. 

#2 Drink More Water.  I actually did really well here! I still need to drink even more water, but I went from drinking maybe a glass of water a week to at least a glass of water a day. I average about 32 oz of water a day.

#3 Eat Healthier. Yea, that did not happen. The only notable changes are that I stopped eating corn and now use almond milk instead of dairy milk.

#4 Time Management. This was another fail. I still struggle to balance things at home, it never feels like there is enough time. Honestly, I just wish I could work less. We're not rich though, so that's not an option :)

#5 Be Sweeter. I'd have to ask T, but I feel like I succeeded in this one. I've stopped letting the little things annoy me so much and have worked on making more time to spend just with Tyler.

#6 Go on vacation with just Tyler. That did not happen this year, instead we went on a really awesome family vacation back home to Alaska. I think Tyler and I still need some time with just the 2 of us, but that will have to be another time.

#7 Get In Shape. Uh, I don't even want to talk about this one. This tops the list of fails for 2013. In fact, I went to yoga less and ate more. With our wedding coming up though, that is sure to change. 

I look forward to sharing my 2014 Resolutions with hopes of actually sticking to them.
