Home Today

Just a normal day for us! Lunch with a couple of friends {and my kiddos of course}, park time, nap time, play time, and fun family time. If you notice little brother loves to follow his big sister everywhere. Poor thing wants to do everything she does and gets so upset when he is not quite big enough to climb all of the same obstacles that she can.

I also made a delicious Baked Parmesan Pork Chop - check out the recipe here! Paired it with brown rice and butter beans - yummy! John was happy to have a home cooked meal after my disappointing him with leftovers on NYE ;)

Happy 2015

Happy New Year!

It is 2015 and it really feels so surreal to be in a year when so much was expected...thank you Back to the Future series. We brought in the new year sleeping snug as bugs in a rug. The kids went to sleep around 8 PM after drinking their sparkling grape/apple juice. We had leftovers for dinner {sorry John!} and I watched Breaking Dawn Part 2. Apparently I really missed out with the Twilight series. Two of my friends convinced me to read the books and I read all of them within about a week. I literally could not put them down. Immediately I had to watch the movies and now I want to keep watching them. I don't even know who I am anymore...

John and I talked about what we wanted to do differently this year and what areas of our life we wanted to improve. It was all pretty much the same areas we have slowly been working on the the past few years. I know I am really looking forward to being in our new house this year...sometime this year. I have no idea when our house will be ready, but I am {im}patiently waiting for that day to come. In the mean time I am working on organizing and purging. Seems like much hasn't changed, right? I do feel like it will be much easier now that I am officially staying home. Having the kids being able to come to work with me was great, but it is much nicer for all of us just to be home and me not work.

I'm looking forward to going back and doing things I used to love but never had time to do anymore, like this blog. Poor thing has been super neglected and this is my sole tie to my memory and how I go back and update our yearly family photo books.

Here is a little "list" of things I would like to refer to as resolutions for the year and the changes I want to see in my daily life.
- fix my hair and throw some make-up on daily
- eating...we'll just leave it at that
- find my active lifestyle again
- give give give
- organize
- be intentional with what I am doing
- go back to sending cards and presents

There's more, but I can't remember and I would have to go out and find my to-do journal to write it all down. AND a few others are just super personal ;)

I hope you and your family have a wonderful new year and use this new year as a fresh start to whatever you choose to do to make a better version of your wonderful self!

AND because I love pictures here are a few from today - which yes, I vow to take a TON more pictures and videos this year.
