Happy New Year! 5 for Friday

Wow....it's January already!  It is hard to believe how fast the school year is going.  It is January, making it the perfect time to reflect and set some goals for next year.  Joining Doodle Bug's linky today to let you know what I'm up to.

Holiday is coming to an end :( It went quickly but I'm not sure how.  Went away with my family and had a great time.  Dress up  shopping is always fun when you're on vacation!  Kept us busy and laughing all night!



Jack had a chance to swim with the dolphins.  AMAZING!  He is a dog lover and said (apart from them being wet and slippery) it was just like petting a pup.  What an wonderful opportunity.  Big thanks to my brother and sister-in-law for taking him out for the day!


As you noticed, we were in Mexico.  It was a wonderful week.  So glad we were able to spend some extra time with family.  Sad to say we live so close and still can't find the time.  Goal for 2015- make an effort to see family more often!  Even though we are all busy with sports, kids activities, work etc. we still need to make the time.  


Goal for 2015 - don't cut my hair!!!!!  I went crazy this summer and chopped of my hair.  It grew back a bit and I asked for a trim, just to fix up the ends.  This is what I got!  It is a nice cut (I had to tell the stylist) but just too short for me!  I am horrified and can't get over it.  TOO SHORT!  I vow not to cut my hair again until July.  *I know...it's just hair, it will grow back,  and I am overreacting.  However, in my world it is a big deal ;)  Waaa...

(I look happy in this pic, but only because I'm standing next to this cutie!)

Goal for 2015 - start some sort of exercise.  Typical, right?  But I guess it's for a reason.  I enjoyed my vacation a bit TOO much and it's time to get back on track.  Power walking, swimming, yoga, running, biking?  Maybe an exercise video to do in my home!  Can you recommend one?  I really don't want to spend the money on a gym right now.  Any of you hear of Fitness Blender on YouTube?  It's free, a good place to start, no?  Please share your suggestions, I'm all ears!

Wishing you all a wonderful new year, filled with health, joy, and prosperity.  Thanks for stopping by. :)


  1. I think your hair looks so cute! I am glad you had a nice holiday break. It goes by way to fast! I am not ready for Monday! I wanted to give you some recommendations for working out at home. I just started Insanity Max by Beachbody and I love it! It is only 30 minutes but intense and fun! I have also done T25, Turbofire and some other of their programs and LOVE them all. I am also a Beachbody coach as fitness is my other passion (besides teaching)! You can find them on my website teambeachbody.com/tiff31ellis. Hope this helps and good luck on meeting all your goals this year!!

    1. Thanks, Tiffany i will check out your recommendations. Happy New Year!!
