Taking a Break

Greetings friends!

I'm writing to say that I'm going to take a little mini vacation from blogging for the month of January. Everyone needs a little down time every now and then, right?

I'll be back bright eyed and bushy tailed for the first of February! In the meantime I hope you are well, have plenty of smiles and fun food adventures!

New Things For a New Year!

Greetings Friends!

Its that time again for weekly wishes/monthly goals! Did you set any goals for last week/month? If so, how did they go? Are you just joining me? Let me explain what happens for Weekly Wishes..
The Happenings: You share your weekly, monthly, or yearly goals/wishes/achievements and you get to be a part of this big group of people that are doing the same thing. Yay! Wanna join in? Check out The Nectar Collective and add a link to your blog!

 I'm so glad that you've decided to join me today! In my mind for the past couple of days I've been thinking and planning for the new year. I must say that I'm pretty excited about what I want to get accomplished! Oddly enough, I used to hate setting "New Year's resolutions and I thought they were a waste of time, because no one ever got them done... Now though, I do it because well... I like it and it makes me feel good to have something to complete and work towards! Plus starting a new year just feels so fresh and new like the previous year's misgivings are forgotten and replaced with shiny new hope!! :) What's your shiny new hope look like? Here's mine:

1. I know it's on most people's list every year, but for really real I want to start loving myself more and fighting for my well-being. That means, exercising most days, cooking more at home, and doing things that make me feel pretty and good about myself. It's so easy to not take care of your needs and just let them fall by the wayside because it's feels selfish or like you're not worthy, but I don't want to do that anymore! So I'm planning on kicking ass on this one in 2015!!

2. These days, everyone has some debt big or small and I am no different. I'm going to muster up all the courage I have and actually look at my credit report to see what the damage is. Then just start knocking things out one by one. I've heard that the newer stuff is what hurts your credit more so than the old, so I'm thinking I'll start there. 

3. Let me tell you that living in a one bedroom place is the quickest way to feel like the world's biggest clutter monkey! Forget to put a few things back and BOOM your home looks a mess. (insert sad trombone sound here) And so I figure it's time to get rid of a few things I just don't need or have completely forgotten about!  

4. I like doing all these tools that apparently help you relax and kill anxiety, like journaling, meditating, doing yoga. Yet I seldom take the time to do them. So I'm committing now to start doing them when the urge hits instead of dismissing them.

5. I am an introverted extrovert. Sounds crazy, right? I LOVE and crave having time to myself, but then I also need to be around people to have conversations and be social. I will be honest and say that I never attempt to start conversations with people that I don't know. It's just not in my DNA. You ever seen that chick standing off to the side just watching everything going on in the room without actually interacting with people? That's me. Instead of shying away from conversation, I want to start stepping into it and just go with the flow. No lie... I had three people just yesterday randomly talk to me. It felt weird, but good to just go along with the flow of convo. What's the worst that could happen?

So this is the snack size version of the things I want to work on this year. I'm feeling pretty motivated and pumped to get things started and see where they take me this year. I hope you've had a delightful day with many bright things to come for the next 364 days remaining. 

Happy New Year!!!!!
