Happy New Years! Here is a recap of all things 2018 for our family and me.
Starting out, here is the New Year’s soup I made for “good luck.”
Erin is still rocking it in Dallas….
Rourke is still rocking it in Shreveport…..
Hayley started a vlog….
I finished overhauling a guest room…
I ended the monthly “bar cart” segment due to an overabundance of bar supplies and an undersupply of storage….:(
I got certified as a fitness instructor and am now employed teaching classes after teaching school during the day and then on weekends….
We went from a two-person empty nest to a 3-4 person/two dog/two-three cat household….
We travelled to Dallas/Fort Worth, Pointe Clear, the beach, Little Rock, Memphis, Vegas and South Louisiana…..
I cooked up mostly healthy dishes..
And, some not-so-healthy dishes….
And, found some new great, beauty products…
Things I plan for the new year:
I am currently working on acquiring personal training and yoga certifications. I hope to utilize these in the near future.
I am also trying to get more organized with money, household, pets, cleaning, etc.
I am attacking the InstantPot with a vengeance. Along with the new Kitchenaid Spiralizer attachment Rourke gave me for Christmas. Be on the lookout for some new recipes….
For travel, Rourke and I are trying to get out of our boxes and explore some new destinations but still revisit some of our favorites in a new light.
For beauty, I am also going to try and get out of my box and try new looks, possibly a new shorter hairstyle?? Thoughts???
For decor, we have plans for new floors and a master bedroom redux.
For life in general, I am continually reminding myself how genuinely blessed I am, and daily thanking God for all of these many blessings.
And, I am aiming to try and read all of David’s Psalms and really reflect on them.
Do you have future plans and ideas for your 2019?
Best wishes for an abundant and blessed new year to you and your family!
