Welcome welcome, 2013!!



Welcome to my first blog in 2013! 

I was an awful blogger last year. AWFUL.  I just haven’t had the gumption or interesting content to write.  Stuck in a rut.

I did feel compelled to write today, however, to talk about my yearly goals and objectives.  I’m not one to make “resolutions”- the term “New Year’s Resolution” has become commercialized in my brain.  Just strive to be a better version of yourself, in whatever aspect of your life, and call it a day…..and no need to start these goals JUST in the beginning of the year.  Goals can be started at any point.

Here are a few of mine:

·         Move back to Alabama to be closer to friends and family- Yeah.  You heard me.  I miss home.  I moved to Charleston last June.  I thought moving to a new location was what I wanted, but let me LET YA KNOW….the grass is most definitely NOT greener on the other side of that tharr pasture. 

·         Finally commit to lose this extra weight before my 30th birthday- I turn 30 in October.  I’ve seriously been trying to lose this extra weight for two years now. TWO. Years.  I just haven’t been able to make the habit stick like I’ve done in the past.  I know what needs to be done, but I always let life’s little excuses get in the way. Not this time.  I’m hoping that moving more towards 30 gives me the extra push that I need mentally.  (In case you’re wondering, YES, I’ll still have my wine in moderation.)

·         Save money. SAVE! SAVE! SAVE!- The worst thing about being so active on the internets is seeing all the cool stuff that’s out there to buy, buy, buy…..and I, my friends, have a shopping addiction.  I admit it that it needs to end this year.  I have a well-paying job and have credit cards I need to shed.  One of the reasons I want to move back to Alabama is to save money.  I still own my home there, but will be living with my parents for awhile (*sigh* and *yay* at the same time).  I didn’t even have a savings account up until two weeks ago! Yikes indeed.  This also means no more frivolous spending unless I can honestly afford it.  I love haul videos from YouTubers and I, of COURSE, follow several beauty and fashion blogs.  I think we all know how envious those can make us sometimes. I’m stopping the insanity.

So tell me—what are your goals for this year?  How do you want to improve your life?
I miss chatting with all of you, so leave those comments below!

I hear ya on the saving money goal. I do the same thing. I read too many fashion/beauty blogs and watch too much youtube and then run out and buy the some products and clothing.

Yay you're back!

I'm trying to lose some final weight too - we'll see how it goes!

Best of luck with the weight and with moving back Jenny, I think that is the right move in all honesty, you must really miss home. I don't think that 2012 was a bad year for your blog because I enjoyed all your posts but here's wishing you an even better 2013!

Welcome back! How long do you have to wait until your renter is outta your place? We're about to get new tenants in our condo now...I'm still weird about other people living in "my" house.

Good for you for realizing that the grass isn't greener, BUT for trying it out before determining it's not for you! Best of luck on losing the weight and saving the bucks! I have a ton of goals this year, lots are Beckett related. :) I was a bad blogger this past year - pregnancy made blogging tough. I'm sure motherhood won't make it easy but I really missed blogging!
