2014 is bound to be crazy. In May, we are expecting our first child together, and my first baby. I can't wait for this new adventure, but I'm not going to lie, I am terrified.

Chris and I only made one New Years resolution and it's to create a budget and follow it. Easy enough? I sure hope so.

I'm hoping to be able to come up with a plan so that while I finish school, I can quit my job. I'll be going to school 20 hours a week, and I want to be able to spend the rest of my time with the baby. Because of this, I have a few other goals I'd like us to work toward. They're not resolutions, just goals. I know it won't be perfect the first year, but I hope we can make things work and make our lives easier.

1) Don't be afraid to ask for help when I need it!! 
The women in my family are always offering help, and I always turn it down. I know their offers are sincere, so I want to work on becoming more comfortable with accepting.

2) Grow my Avon business.
I sell Avon, but I don't put much work into it right now. I want to change that and use it as a way to have extra money after the baby is here and after I quit my regular job.

3) Loose baby weight, plus some.

4) Write to my brother more.
He's so consistent with writing to me, and I have trouble finding the time to sit down and actually write a long, meaningful letter. I feel like an awful sister and I definitely want to get better at this.

5) Take more pictures.
I've realized that I definitely don't document my life as much as a I used to. I hardly have any pictures of the past year! That needs to change this year.

6) Add a mud room in the garage.
This would make my life so much easier and more organized.

7) Plan meals and waste less food.


  1. Believe me, you will be documenting life with a camera when you have a baby. Congratulations! Enjoy every minute of your child. Thank you for joining the Thumping Thursday bloghop.
