Well by now you’ve gotten through Christmas and all its fun/stress filled glory and you are probably thinking about 2015. What will it hold for you?
I am contemplating new goals for 2015, specifically with the blog. But I haven’t written anything down yet. On Christmas Eve, I rearranged my office to inspire more motivation and some creativity for the year to come and Christmas day was a fun filled blur.
When you have a three and five year old, its so exciting to see them open each gift. Before we knew it, the house was filled with torn wrapping paper and bows and we needed two garbage bags to clean it all up and then we ran into the predicament of what to do with all the kids new toys? So yesterday I rearrange the play room and we immediately started a Goodwill bag for the toys my kids rarely play with.
Some of the things I got for Christmas I can use for blogging! My husband aka Santa was really good to me this year! Heck he’s good to me every year, I can never complain.
He’s been better at embracing my blogging. He knows that it generates a little income for us and we’ve used that to get some amazing things for our house and its contributed to all the home projects we’ve been doing since we moved here a few years ago. I’m so happy he’s embraced it and he sees that this is “my work” my way of contributing to our family as a “work at home mom”, not just a “stay at home mom”.
So this year he got me somethings to help with my creativity and use of time.
I can’t wait to thumb through Lexi Lane’s Blogger’s Survival Guide book. If you don’t know who she is she’s the blogger behind voiceboks.com. I hope I can learn somethings, specifically for effective time management, because I tend to work too much on one project and let time get away from me.
I’m also stoked about the Nikon for dummies book! I can’t wait to find out new ways of shooting and use the new filters my husband got me!
He also found a way to get me the new iphone 6 for free! I just have to trade in my old iPhone 5. I was so happy about this because I planned on saving up two months of blogging money to get this phone! 🙂 And look at the pretty gold glitter case he got me? He totally knows my style!
I also have tons of chocolate to go through in my stocking. Hunky Hubs knows I love Fererro Rocher, which really won’t help me much with my fitness goals, but hey you gotta live a little right?!
Next year, even though I haven’t written it down yet, I hope to continue going to the gym. I haven’t been in about two months. But hunky hubs gave me his old fitbit and I downloaded my fitness pal and I love how these two apps work together and I plan on loosing at least 5 pounds and toning up a lot of flab. Hopefully before the wedding I’m in come February.
How was your Christmas? What are you goals for the New Year?
