My 2016 Resolutions

Aaaahh! The end of the year has arrived!! I cannot believe how quick this year has come and gone! So many things I wish I would have embraced and done. Oh well...on to the next year! No "what if's" or "I should have's". Things I want to do, will be done. 

Looking back at this year, I have had many blessings and opportunities. I thank God for blessing my family and I with good health and everything we have is because of Him. We are truly blessed. I'm definitely looking forward in seeing what 2016 has in store. 

Cheers to you all and let's welcome 2016 with open arms! 

God. Above all Him. I know what my beliefs are. I admit in distancing myself and letting my relationship with Him become faint. I want to re-establish my relationship and I want my little family to build their own relationship with Him as well. 

Travel. Whether it's to another city or state, heck-even another town. The Hubs and I have decided we would travel. I gave him a map for our anniversary and we've pinned the places we have traveled to, together as a couple and family. My goal in 2016 is to get a lot more pinned off! Experiencing all that is around us. I want M to know that there is a GINORMOUS world to explore!!

Me. I'm a wife. I'm a mom. I'm a sister. I'm a daughter. I'm also just me! In 2016, I want to make time for myself. From getting my hair done to going out for coffee to working out. I think it's so important to make time for YOU and finding a balance between being everything else. Most of the time, I have my hair in a messy bun, no make up and flip flops on. Not that anything is wrong with that but I also need to find time to doll up. I want to make time and go to happy hour with my girlfriends or get my nails done. 2016, I'm coming for ya-lipstick on, hair curled and all!!!

Cook. No excuses! We spend so much money on eating out. I don't even want to think about it. I was gifted a crock-pot for Christmas and plan to use the heck out of it in 2016. Set it and forget it! I have a menu planner and I don't use it or stick to it as often as I should. Cheers to frugal eating in 2016!

Date. With the Hubs of course! We have such busy lives that sometimes we forget to take a step back and appreciate what or in this instance "who" is next to us. Before M it was just the Hubs and I. I will say, and he'll agree, that I tend to brush him off when it comes to just us two. So, in this coming year, I vow to spend more "us" time...and find a sitter for M :) 

Scrapbook. I have piles of stickers, tons of paper and an even bigger amount of scrapbooks...that are empty!!! Yes. I buy cute card stock and stickers with the intent of scrapbooking and never do! That my friends, will all change. Starting January 1st, I, Stephanie, will begin my scrapbooking journey. The Hubs has threatened to throw everything out otherwise. I've even bought some new gadgets and embellishments to help get this journey started. 

Grow the Blog. I went into blogging because I love reading blogs and writing has always been a passion of mine. I love being able to share my experiences and thoughts with you all. Some of you don't know this but I do maintain a full time job outside of blogging and mommy life. I hope to dedicate more time to this blog and produce more blog content for you.

What are your goals and resolutions for 2016? I'd love to hear them!
