Catching Up

I won’t bore you all with my excuses about why I haven’t posted. The truth is, I set an intention at the beginning of this year and haven’t followed through. So what have I been up to now that we’re … Continue reading

Another Year, Another Chapter: 2017 Recap

Well friends, one thing I can say for certain: 2017 was not my best year for blogging! To say that I blogged irregularly would be an understatement. But that is okay.  I’ve had a lot on my plate and accomplished … Continue reading

Another Year in the Books: 2015

Happy (almost) new year all!

This is by far my favorite holiday of the year. Yes, I am one of those people that’s all about “new year, new me.” It’s not that I necessarily believe that everything has to change with each roll to a new year, but I do think that the closing of one year is an opportunity to reflect; on the good, the bad, what you’ve learned, and what can be changed. It is a great way to mark the passage of time.

So, I made a little list last year at the end of 2014, nothing crazy, just a few things I wanted to try and accomplish.

2015 Resolutions:

  • Starting with the most important, I transitioned to my natural hair! It was a long-time coming but so far, so good. I’ve learned lots, but my journey is still beginning. Onward to 2016!
  • We were able to successfully rid our house of pacifiers, but potty training is still in-progress.
  • Baby #2? Well, work, school, life, my health…heck, everything got in the way :-/

2016 Resolutions:

  1. This child will be potty trained. By March, is my plan!
  2. Save money! $$$
  3. Finish my graduate degree. My goal is Spring (optimistic). Could be Fall (realistic).
  4. Baby #2. Let’s try this one again…

 
Those are just a few this things that I’d like to work on in 2016. I hope you all have a safe New Year’s Eve and a wonderful new year. Bring on 2016!

Thankful

Per usual, I’ve been remiss in updating my blog with the goings-on in my life. I will say that things have been exciting for sure. Since today is Thanksgiving, in addition to reviewing what I’ve been up to, I’d also … Continue reading

Let’s Finish This!

Happy New Year’s Eve lovelies!

I’m relaxing on the couch with my main squeeze and reflecting on the year we’ve had.

As always, we’ve made it through the good and bad. Highs and lows are only natural, and it is how you overcome it that proves your strength.

Personally, I achieved a huge goal of mine in applying and being accepted to graduate school. I’m feeling accomplished and challenged. I still have a long way to go, but one semester is down in 2014 and I’m ready to take on the remaining three.

My little man is changing every day. He is a talking up a storm, and it just cracks us up. I can’t wait for (or should I be dreading?) what three has in store for us.

We have a lot of work to do health-wise. Of course I’m going to make one of those cliché promises that 2015 will be different and I will get in shape. One day at a time, right?

Maybe not resolutiona but goals for 2015 include :

*Complete a fitness challenge each month

*Try for baby #2….hehe

*Work on potty training and giving up the paci with our little man (yeah, we’re still working on that)

*Transition to my natural hair

*Get serious about saving money

*Grad school: keep grinding!

Peace out 2014! You’ve been….real.

Wishing you all a wonderful 2015!
