10 Resolutions For 2018

Illustrated Fireworks New Year Card

Last year and basically every year I make a list of resolutions and will follow them for a bit and then don’t follow through. This year is going to be different. I am going to follow through with them. These are going to improve my daily life and am looking forward to it.

What are some of the resolutions on your list?

Go Unplugged for half an hour everyday. I believe this is something very much needed. It is the perfect time to just unwind and clear your mind.

Learn something new. I have always wanted to learn Spanish. I took French in high school and I’ll be honest that I don’t remember any of it. So I really want to learn some basic Spanish. Wish me luck.

Read to Lexi everyday. As you know Lexi is special needs so I really want to help her expand her mind even at such a young age. I believe that will be very beneficial to her as she grows up.

Improve my skin. Now that I am 29 I have become more aware that I need to protect my skin more. Of course I use products to keep it healthy, but I want to create a regimen and stick to it.

Take a woman’s vitamin. This one goes hand in hand with the above resolution. I am nearing 30 so I think this is a must.

Eat breakfast everyday. This is a meal that I usually skip. I don’t know why to be completely honest. I believe that this meal will really set my energy for the day so even a banana would make me happy.

Eat one healthy meal a day. I love food. I definitely am not a picky eater. I have to say that I am not the healthiest eater and that is something I need to work on.

Read one book a month. I used to read a lot, but its something that I haven’t kept up with lately. This is something that I want to change because it is relaxing to sit down and read a good book.

Be more organized. When I say this I mean my closet. I really need everything to be in order.

Go for a walk two to three times a week. This will be good for the mind and body.

Fall Around the Home

Fall. I just can’t describe how much I love this season, especially October. I think it is the fact that I get all my decorations out to put up around the house. I think the fact that this year I have a little one at home makes the time even more special. In a previous post I shared some decor that I am loving and would like to get. I did end up purchasing a few pieces and I would love to share them with you all.

Fall Decor I’m Loving

Fall is officially here! Now all we need are some of the Fall temps. I absolutely love decorating my house this season. I just love all the pumpkins, the pumpkin smells, leaves, and we can’t forget the Pumpkin Spice Latte. Today, I am sharing a few items that are perfect Fall home decor. FYI, the Nest candle is my favorite.

Nursery Reveal

I am very excited about today’s post! I absolutely love Lexi’s nursery. My goal was for her to have a bright and happy nursery and I feel that is exactly what I achieved. I am in love with the white, gray, and pink colors and of course the owls. I of course searched Pinterest for inspiration and combined a lot of ideas together and this is what I came up with. I hope you all love it as much as I do.
