Happy Monday! I can't believe how fast Christmas break went for me. School starts back up today! I have loved being able to sleep in and not have anything really to do! No lesson plans, discipline, work meetings, etc. However, I am excited to get back on a schedule and work on this years New Year resolutions!

#1. Cook more! My goal is to make grocery shopping lists, cook almost every night (healthy foods), and save on groceries! It's a work in progress but I am excited to start this resolution!

#2. Get in shape! I haven't seriously exercised in over 6 months! Its bad, I know. I am excited to finally get back into the gym to loose those extra pounds and tone up! This will also work well with my goal to cook more and eat healthy.

#3. My last one for now is to keep a clean house! Its so easy to just leave something sitting in the living room or that extra dish in the sink. I just want my home to feel clean and inviting! (we will also be looking for a house of our own to buy this spring so that is exciting for us!

#4. Save money! We want to buy a home this spring as well as go on some fun vacations this summer. This requires saving some money! We have been pretty good at this but can be a lot better! This means not spending so much on the clothes that I love to buy... but I can manage!

#5. Blog more! I have been pretty busy and get caught up in everything going on that it gets hard to keep up with blogging! This is one that I want to continue to work on!

Today I am wearing one of my favorite gingham shirts from this holiday season. I love adding some color to these sometimes dull winter months! I paired it with my fabulous scarf my husband picked out for me for Christmas! He knows I love leopard print, gold, and cream.. so he thought not purchase something with some of my favorite things! It is perfect to go with any look and I love it!

Have a fabulous Monday!

  1. These are all really great goals for the new year! One thing that helped me with cooking more is to meal plan for the week and put it on a dry erase board or something like that. It really helps keep the grocery bill down and give you an idea for dinner. Super cute layered look! I love anything plaid :)


  2. great goals for 2014! you look so cute!

  3. Best of luck accomplishing your goals for 2014!! I love this outfit- so cozy and chic!!
